I've sold to and bought from Steve Davis, in the early days of ebay he used to sell a lot of Northern.

Sold to Wayne Hemmingway on ebay, Tim Burgess of The Charlatans on ebay, several non-Northern scene but very famous DJ's, probably more but I don't think of them as being 'famous', just normal customers. I was more star-struck when I met Dave Hill from Slade in my village post office (until I found out he was a miserable grumpy old c*nt)

Steve is a serious Soul collector. He was (or still is) part owner of Voices From The Shadows (record list) and was a regular visitor to Soul Essence at one time.

Knows his stuff and has great taste!

He was a regular visitor to a few soul nights including the Canal Tavern in Thorne in the 80's. He used to have a radio show, on Invictus Radio I think.

Hi there believe it or not but Ian "lemmy" Kilminster of Hawkwind and motorhead fame has one of the best motown and r-n-b collections in the country .Motorheads first legal release was I'm sure a cover of Motowns "leaving here" on Chiswick records I was told that Lemmy's first group was a mod outfit called the motown set or the motown sect and I've seen photo's of him when he was a mod in Kiderminster.So get your heads round that one.ATB Simon Hunt.

Don't know if it is appropriate to the thread Smudge but watching a documentary about the Beatles yesterday on ITV4 when they returned back from the first tour of America, John Lennon is carrying a Major Lance Album. Also lead to believe Dale Winton is a collector, and I saw Paul Frear who played Barry Grant on Brookside at a Prestatyn Weekender a couple of years ago. Yocky

Ps I think there is a famous fish fryer in Skegness called Coops collects a few toones!!

She was a regular at Cleethorpes and is a mate of my mates wife.The bloke from the office is a soul fan.Steve Stange and Dave Ball leading lights from the New Romantic era were Mecca regulars.Re Ian Kilminster (Lemmy).His drummer cant remember his name was a skinhead from the original era .....was it Filthy Animal Taylor?? See picture below...... . Steve Davis is also a massive fan of prog rockers Magma from Germany so its not only soul that rocks his boat.Ive a tape with Steve Davis on with him raving about the Budweiser releases/Milton Parker/Rena Scott etc I used to see the bloke who presents late night baseball at soul weekenders (southport ) in the 90's...Im sure he deejayed as well.Richard Searling who was involved in Warsaw (pre Joy Division and got them to do Keep On Keeping On) is known to like a soul record or 2.What about Chris King....wasnt he in KWS who had a hit with please dont go and ploughed the motown vaults.When I was doing the Rocket old tango man Dale Winton turned up and even offered to deejay!!.We also had Nick (Telstar and Lock Stock) Moran in as well.He's into soul and funk..Shaun Ryders brother is into northern as is Mani from Primal Scream. Well into his scooters as well as was Ian Brown who I believe was in the Crusaders scooter club . KWS on TOTP....can anyone confirm Chris King on keyboards

Sorry but no he doesn't.

He has about a hundred record tops and the extent of his knowledge is Joy Lovejoy etc. He still loves R&B and soul but was never really into Northern.

I know this because he was the fellow of my course when I was at university and I asked him.

Had to laugh at one of the comments:

The keyboardist on the left looks like a wedding DJ or someone who's just showing the keyboard for demonstration purposes only.

So yes, it is Chris King :thumbsup::yes:

I don't think he did. Richard tried to make them do the cover and that was that. They kept the riff and turned it into a completely different thing.

Still a great track, IMO. Here's the version off Unknown Pleasures:

He is a big fan of the band, Magma, as previously pointed out...in fact he put his hand in his own pocket to help finance the release of two of their LPs via Charly Records. I recall one sales meeting he came down to the offices and was more than happy to come out for lunch down the local pub with us roughie toughie reps...he was first to put his hand in his pocket to pick up the tab as well, which was nice! A thoroughly nice guy (as others also note) and was able to laugh at the 'interesting' image he had in the media, even though it really wasn't a faire reflection of the man.
