    Oh dear

    Oh and no one has private messaged me yet with one boot playing dj or boot promoting promoter? If we wish to improve the scene lets out them and let eveyone know who to avoid?

    Oh dear

    I think mostvoldies venues are more interested in numbers throug the door. It si only the other aspects of the scene that care first about the music, secondly attendances. We will never have it like we once did, thats the problem for many of us, especially those who want to hear something different. Very few new records, the majority of what there is are from the vaults and on cd which the scene frowns upon. The only thing essentially different is the oldies crowd aren't playing them. The something different crowd including those mentioned are playing very little if nothing new. Still plenty of good nights out there but lets at the very least be honest about what we are going out to listen to.

    Back To The Roots at the Catholic Club

    We're back in the groove!! Despite some quality competition around and about, numbers were only slightly down on August's brilliant return. Guests Ciro and Chris played absolute blinders. Thank you so much guys. We are finalising details of our guests for this November 24th bash, so watch this space. Really looking forward to seeing you all there.As usual we kick of at 8.00pm and finish around 12.30am. Entrance is absolutely free. For anyone who hasn't been before, you won't be disappointed. This is a quality venue with a good dance-floor and great range of excellent beers. Why not come and join in the fun.

    northern soul - the current state...?

    There in a nutshell is the problem. When most people on here started they were not worried about OVO etc, it was something that was cool/dangerous and to some, not all, where they could listen to sounds that not many others new. For the majority who venture out now that is what, in their minds at least, they want to recreate. What about today's scene makes youngsters want to get involved when they can find these things elsewhere, especially when a few clicks on a PC can deliver the same music in their front room. They live in a world that is vastly different from the one we grew up in.

    and they talk about the price of rare records

    A second bottle went for £380,000. My problem is I keep opening them!!!!

    Oh dear

    I think this sums things up perfectly. At the end of the day, unless there is an influx of youth who want to push the boundaries, rather than duplicate what has gone before this will be as good as it gets.

    northern soul - the current state...?

    The young want to listen to modern music and hang around with people of their own age not hang around with the older generations . If the young are to get involved with soul music I would imagine they will create their own scene and listen to a more contempary type of soul music and not the 60s/70s type.

    Christine Cooper - Voices of Vista Lp - 1966

    Christine Cooper remains an anomaly, I've been in touch with the Kasenetz-Katz people they really didn't remember a lot about her but are interested to find her again. Here's a picture of her with James Brown and Jerry Kasenetz from 1966.

    northern soul - the current state...?

    First and foremost, the scene is music-driven. Nobody has to be a vinyl junkie to enjoy the music. People talk about this scene dying because its punters are aged. I reckon the same thing was said about the Rock n Roll scenes, yet they still exist - and globally. Sure, there will always be collectors and crate-digging DJs, but being as obsessive as them isn’t essential for this scene to stay alive. And if the scene embraces the modern soul music of the future as well as it’s done so with the “modern”of the 70’s and beyond, DJs will be out hunting elusive CDs, mp3s and long-forgotten streaming service archives that’ll serve as the big warehouse finds of tomorrow!

    Oh dear

    Too many promoters chasing too few punters. A couple of weeks ago I went to a venue that I hadn't attended in a couple of years. It used to be well supported, but numbers had really dropped off. In fact, one part of the main room was reserved for a 60th birthday party and there was a hen party elsewhere. Neither of these parties were there for the music, so I'm assuming the venue owners were just happy for them to make up the numbers. Some of the birthday party goers were asking for requests and unfortunately the DJ obliged as we were subjected to an hour of club soul, while they danced around a pile of shoes. The DJ in question was later seen availing himself of the birthday buffet. Judas! Needless to say, I won't be rushing back.

    Amazing deep deep sister funk from the late Nadine Brown Strong VG copy plays very nice. £800
  24. Mark R

    Oh dear

    And it's totally bizarre.........buying them to DJ rather than because you actually love/want the record.......paying a kings ransom for it and getting £50 for DJ'ing. How desperate can you be........ Cheers, Mark R
  25. Mark R

    Oh dear

    A fantastic post......opening mith my current favourite phrase.........eating itself. Cheers, Mark R

  27. andybellwood

    Oh dear

    Perhaps a simple box ‘no bootleg policy ‘ on event listings on here for promoters to tick (or leave blank)?
