When I was speaking to Paul Rowan on Friday afternoon , I mentioned to him that Stan Spencer had been mentioned on the forum , and he recalled one particular time we encountered him .

Stan had been released a couple of days earlier from Strangeways , and when asked how it had been , he replied " If I stood on my chair in the cell and looked out through the bars on the window , I could see The Wheel "

Never been to any of the older venues but have loved Northern Soul music since I first encountered the music @ 14 yrs of age in 76.

I have read this thread and recognise a lot of names and have over the past few years met a few too albeit South of Essington(Prestatyn aside) thats the furthest we've travelled. So theres an insight into my "souling" escapades,now who are "my characters! - as follows.

1 Sue Taylor aka Tamlasue aka Mrs Motown ("my missus") firstly in keeping with the "missus" bit of the thread - yes she has great tits!but also as with Jumping Joan and Jo Wallace she too has balls to do it behind the decks!

no particular order now

Joey from Pembrokeshire - The "quiet" fanatic!

Martin Pilnick - how many miles does this guy do for soul - diamond!

Adrian Matt Matthews - One of the nicest guys on the scene

Neil and Ann Self - Very Good friends. - Mr & Mrs Soulfusion

Mike Eskins & Des Parker- Riversidesoul & Gloucesters allnighter revivalists and good friends too.

Don "the knowledge"Palmer and Steve Lloyd - Coppertops - champions for the scene

Pete Macca McNulty - who renewed my faith that Soul music,Cider and vodka does mix! and Helen for keeping us in check!

Jerry Hippo Hipkiss - unbridled passion for music!

Pete and Cathy Lyster - Passionate musical folks,good friends and Man U fans too!

Leon and Gail Brown - GLAWSTERS FINEST!

Sean Champan and Michelle - What Passion for the scene

Nige and Tina Graham - Great folks with whom we have recently had some great laughs with!

Many many more I could mention but there is 2 last people I have to mention Carole Gibbard and finally Sid Pratt who certainly was responsible for many a great Sunday afternoon "push the furniture back,box finding dust blowing off soul sessions in his front room then the last few years in our conservatory!" and keeping me involved in the scene.

Mine have to be:

Dave Molloy for his wit, his knowledge and his impeccable taste as well as being a fab husband x

Micky Cruise for just being my best mate for the past 18 years. Not many people know the real Michael Edward Cruise. Totally loyal friend and probably my biggest influence in broadening my knowledge of vinyl, putting me on to some amazing tunes and introducing me to some of the best people on The Scene. (ooh did I mention, he still pulled some dodgy antics with me but never got away with them without a slap across the boat race and I knew him when he still had all his own teeth) Love you mate x

Pete Lawson for scaring me half to death when I first met him but then being a very genuine guy who I looked up to and respected 100% and got to know for who he really was

Curly (David Waters) from Middlesborough for being piss funny and never failing to make me laugh. Dodgy bugger!

Little Annie Martin from Bolton for being the funniest female I have ever met on The Scene and off and for her committment to The Scene for nearly 30 years constant. She deserves an MBE for her patience with Mr Cruise

Gaz Kellett again for his wit, knowledge and genuinity. The other half of The Soul Tw...ts

Jock O'Connor for being the nicest chap I ever met as well as being 100% pure soul

Wendy (Mrs Stiggers) for being someone who has morals and no bulls shit, treating me as an equal despite being one of the young naive girls all those years ago

Little Tommy Allinson for being that crazy little guy from Ormskirk who you know will always tell you how it is, like it or not cos of his genuine honesty and his respect to anyone who knows him

Good call on all of them Julie

Was chuckling t'other day about a Kellet escapade whereby he somehow 'found' a massive sheet of gold paper / foil (bit like those people get wrapped in after a marathon). He proceeded to wrap himself in it and career around the venue claiming he was a "werther's original", approaching unsuspecting victims with the immortal line "come and have a sweet of your old grandad" :thumbsup:

oh mate, genius laugh.gif Always was a big 'props' fan: coat-hangers, mail sacks etc etc.

Tony L made me laugh out loud last week when he recalled another 'incident' whereby Gaz emerged into the dawn light sans shoes and socks; he'd swapped his brogues for a Hesitations record (and was well happy with the deal by all accounts) :thumbsup:

I reckon I define the word "character"differently to most unsure.gif Some of these posts seem like a list of mates and not the "characters" who I thought you were referring to. Plenty had an influence on me but not all what I would describe as a character. Characters to me are people like Pete Lawson, Gaz Kellett, Phil Worrell, Tommo, Woody etc etc.

For me, there were quite a few but the following stood / stand out just that bit taller (excluding Matchy, as he's a short arse :thumbsup: );

Frank Jackson - RIP

Pete Lawson - RIP

Matchy

Smokey

Booper

Widdy

DAVE BLOCKLEY [YORK]................................Just one hell of a CRAZY GUY

RICHARD DOLBEN........................Scarborough, Crazy guy

JOHN JEFFRIES.....................................The time he thumbed a lift back to york, from scarborough because he`d lost his money, we were there for the weekend, he came back later after going all the way home to get more money, then when we got back to the B&B he took his shoes n socks off and his money was under his footlaugh.giflaugh.gif His exact words were............................HEAVY SHITlaugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

I just by chance found this site, searching for anything to enlighten me more of my uncle Stan Spencer's life before he passed in 1995. Reading the comments and memories has absolutely made my day if not year :-) Was he really a mover as you say he was or a 'character' even? I've attached a few pictures.. any more memories or stories are welcomed :-)

Big Stan was a giant amongst men and a key character when I came onto the scene in the early 1970s. A regular at Leeds Central and the Intercon in Wakefield and a major scene-ster at the time. Some of the older lads from Leeds, Huddersfield and Wakefield will be to elaborate more 'cos I only really saw Stan at the clubs and I was usually dee-jaying at the time and Stan could be....unpredictable lol. RIP Stan. You're not forgotten mate.
