Despite the fact that many had gone to the "metrodome " for Dave Bacons "60th"....thumbsup.gif .... the Grov was well on form as always... full dance floor in both rooms....great atmosphere full of soulfull people .... enjoyed "double decking" with "Kyp" the faith.... top Dj and all round lovely bloke good.gif

But 10.20 came and we were also off to help celebrate one of the scenes most loved soulies at the metrodome ...... and what a party it was... but that, i am sure will be another thread... thumbsup.gif ...

never been to the Grov??.......... you just don't know what yer missing !

whistling robs records, got a boot darkest days for a tenner ian:thumbup:

Had a great night spent most of the time in the Classic soul & Motown room, enjoyed DJ'ing in there & to finish off double decking with Dave it made my night, we seemed keep the music flowing & the dancers on the floor.. Great stuff must do it again sometime thumbsup.gifthumbsup.gif ...Cressy

ps should be able to pick a proper Darkest Days up for around £50 to £60 lesser condition perhaps a bit less That's not much more than a boot & you get an original thumbsup.gifthumbsup.gifthumbsup.gif

:hatsoff2: he played them for you terry ,you now you like them lol:innocent:shades

If you've nothing constructive to say its probably better to say nowt Graham. Is that supposed to be some kind of justification or just diversionary tactics - either way you are not talking to some 18 year old who will grow up thinking this is the kind of stuff his parents generation used to listen to at The Wheel, Torch and The Casino. A lot of good friends have passed and this is an insult to thier memory.

Hi Rob.

I apreciate the fact that someone asked for it but you can say no. Would you play anything if someone asked you for it?? Flasher - you must have had it in your box to pick it out - bring it just in case someone asked you for it?? Respect for your venue though, although again its a little wanting in the Music policy for me. Yes I know, If you don't like it then don't come but that is the attitude that is going to let mediocraty take charge. There is so much good, underplayed stuff out there that never gets to see the light of day yet we still keep playing The Champion and Tim Tam and the Turn Ons or whatever the hell its called. Be brave and look deeper into that big box of Northern you have. I understand these are the ramblings of an old Soulie but I have the scenes best interset at heart. You get good feedback so you must be doing 'something' right. Probably be there next time so you can give me a bollocking then.

I appreciate your words and yes you are right. I've tried before but just get labeled an old Dinosaur, someone unable to move with the times. Its sad but our Northern Soul Scene, as I remembered it, is being trivialised and made to look exactly like people used to think we were. I'll keep it in my Heart and no one will drag it from me. We need to stand up and shout but theres too few of us now - Too many gone, either to the Big Sprung Wooden Floor in the Sky or sucumb to peer pressure and gone over to the Dark Side.
