If I remember rightly I think I only went twice.

It was small with a modern, colourful deco.

Richard was DJing but I don't know who else.

Didn't they have a strobe light on stage?

I do remember that you had to put your bag in the cloakroom and they

wouldn't let you have it until you was going. :yes:

That would be great Malc - for many of us this club remains a bit of a mystery beyond the adverts in old issues of B&S.

Richard was playing things like Johnnie Howard "The chase is on" etc. there....almost a new release back then whistling.gif

What an exciting time that must have been.

Nige, I really liked the original Vava's badge because it was so shite. None of that bright multi-coloured tack for me.

Someone in a previous post mentioned a stage. Can't remember a stage but there again I can't remember much whistling.gif apart from the multi-coloured perspex around the dance floor with Searling sitting in that sunken hole with the decks. Oh, and the Volcanos "Laws of Love"

For me, it was my first allnighter with some of the Ormskirk crowd. Mandy Edis, Porky, Steve Marchant, Tommy Allinson, Pete Winrow etc. First record I heard was Alice Clarke "You Hit Me". Memories of the night, as John said Chrome, and big glass panels(some missing, & people falling through!laugh.gif ). Mel Williams "Can It Be Me", Timothy Wilson "Love Is Like An Itching", Jackie Follett "There's A Moment", and the Rolling Stones Version of "Under My Thumb"ohmy.gif . Didn't realise that the scene was chemically stimulatedno.gif . Only got into Va Vas once, the second time I wasn't old enoughbiggrin.gif . Fortunately this time I was in a friends car.

I remember dancing, and it suddenly felt like it was raining sideways. I found out later, I was dancing next to Booper and he went into a spin.

Anyway John, I don't think you wore your uniform in school, so what were you doing wearing it out?laugh.gif

I was reading a very early edition of Manifesto & as I turned to the 'letters' page this photo of my older brother was staring back at me.

Don't know why it was in there because there was no reference to it in any of the letters.

Anyway, I asked my brother about it & he said it was taken outside the VaVa. Shame that it only shows a bit of the brickwork at the entrance.

He's the one on the right, Dave Urmston, but he can't remember the name of the guy with all the hair.

Anyone know him?

Certainly is, I remember Dave and some of the other Bolton lads, Roger & Colin. In fact I bumped into Roger at the Citrus Nighter a couple of years ago - still the same.

I remember Gordon Thomson & Barry Big Eyes too.

I was there the night the police closed it. A coach full of us came up from Cheltenham and Gloucester and got stranded. The coach dropped us at 12 and then cleared off untill 8 the following morning. Spent a couple of hours walking the streets of Bolton being harassed by the police and finally ended up in the jamaican cafe where there were prostitutes upstairs and a bunch of huge jamaicans playing cards downstairs - I think the cafe was called the Soldier Blue

Hello all.

Any special memories of Va Va's club or even better, any photos.

Yule.

Hi all

After reading some of the replies to this post , I have copied a letter that i wrote to the local paper about 3 years ago. I hope that it may be of interest to you all.

Just a few facts "Bolton has a strong link to the Northern soul scene"

In the late 1960s when most of the British youth followed the Californian Hippy and Flower Power culture, many of the teenagers in northern towns across England, aligned themselves with Detroit rather than San-Francisco.

The music of Motown could be heard in every pub and club from Radcliffe to Rivington.

Times changed and so did the Music coming out of Detroit, The Temptations began to sing about "Psychedelic Shack" instead of "My Girl".

Motown had gone to California (Literally) it moved its Hq from Detroit to Los Angeles,

In Areas across the north such as Bolton, Wigan, Preston, Barnsley and Wakefield, some of the DJs in these pubs and clubs sensed a change in the music, and searched for other sources of that foot tapping dance beat.

They discovered that Detroit music was not just Motown albeit it was the largest record label, there was in fact a myriad of smaller independent labels that had produced records identical to that Motown sound, some of them featuring the same singers and journeyman musicians, who moved around the companies searching for work.

Some of these records were so rare that if a Dj played it at his club it would bring the die-hard mods from miles away. and if someone had 2 copies " wow " collectors and Djs would bid extortionate amounts to own them.

Bolton for some strange reason seems to have had more than its fair share of these Clubs, Record Collectors and Djs, as well as Soul enthusiasts and GOOD Dancers.

One of the first was The Cromwellian club on Bank St, which is quoted as being instrumental in history of rare soul music (later termed Northern Soul) which drew clientele from all over the North West.

Later the inplace to go was Bolton Palais (now Icon ) where the Dj was the legendary Wycliffe Alan Barratt Jr (Wick) the son of an African American soldier

( Well thats what he always told me )

In about 1970 the local government built its admin. Headquarters of Elizabeth house on what was Great Moor St Bus Station and opened Trendy nightclub called VA VA.

In order to generate business on Fridays they opened all night playing chart records. VA VAs was quite unique in that it had an all nighter on Fridays,

This was to get around the Sunday rule that stated that in Bolton " Members only clubs " could obtain a Music licence to play records after 2 am on Sunday morning.

A Few of us Soulies and record collectors who often went to all nighters on Saturdays such as The Torch in Tunstall, Stoke on Trent would often take a few records down and when the locals had fallen asleep we would dance away to our favourite music.

I worked At Va Va during the week,and knew the management well and after a while and having borrowed records from older soulies such as Jimmy Muirehead and Mick Gooding, Hank and Dave Urmston, the management were approached and the question of playing soul from the start of the session was posed and we were told "find a Dj and your on".

Wick Barratt was asked and he said that he knew a mate from Tonge Fold called Richard Searling who worked at Global Records in Manchester. within weeks what had been an all nighter littered with sleeping bodies became a hot sweaty mass of dancing Soulies that came from as far as Scotland, Barnsley, Sheffield as we spread the word about

a Friday nighter in Bolton,

All this on 2 dance floors the biggest of which was about the size of my bedroom and the other as big as the rug in it.

One of my fondest memories of this time is one of 20 stone plus Dave " Bub" Buttle, pulling into the car park on a Moped that he had ridden over the pennines from his home in Barnsley, with his backside hanging over the sides like John Waynes saddle bags. And another of Bub walking down the path of our house and my Dad, looking out of the

window shouting to my Mum without batting an eyelid, " Edith" " Tha better goo an get sum grub in" " this one fav vers he con eyt orse".

Later in 73 Wigan Casino opened its doors so we would go to VA VAs on friday, Wigan Casino on Saturdays and then round it off with a dose of Bolton Palais on sundays.

I became Friends with a journalist who wrote for the specialist magazine " Blues and Soul" and spent many pleasurable hours discussing the pros and cons of this particular record or that particular artist. That journalist now many years later works for the Bolton Evening News and is features writer Frank Elson.

Best Wishes and fondest memories Brent Howarth

Long winded or what??? not even got to Barry Big Eyes or Big Willie from Much Wenlock , Eccles and his brother from Preston , Richie Hills or even my mate Tich from Bolton, Dave Molloys older brother Jimmy. Roger and Colin, and Paul Delaney . LOL
