First time visit for us and a very enjoyable one it was - spent most of the night in the smaller rare room and heard some cracking stuff from John and Mick and Simon, well he took me on a bit of a back down memory lane journey spinning some classic Stafford period stuff and some quite exclusive acetates, one offs and never heard before gems with the occasional nod and comment of appreciation to each other, it was without doubt a night of TOP STUFF in FAB company and a return visit is a MUST!!

See you out and about.

just to put the record straight there wouldnt be a nottingham soul club if it wasnt from me i came up with the idea of starting a soul club at the new venute club previously known as the plessey club ,reason being in my youth we al use to go there for northern around 74 /75 time,so i thought id start a soul club there again back in its roots my firast choice of dj,s to help me was someone who already runs a sucessfull soul club so wont name him the second ,so i asked glynn sissons having gone to school with glynn and knowing what a superb record collection glynn asmy next chpoice was a person me and glynn went to school with and also as a record collection to rival glynns ,but i asked poolie whpo ive known from 76 time and is a likable bloke ...behind the scenes id met someone in oz and was suppose to go over but changed my mind ,so the launch of the nottingham soul venue was suppose to be my leaving do witch we hoped would attract friends and it did .I was informed if i went dont worry as i would still be apart of the set up till at least three months after incase i changed my mind and returned seeings id set this venue up basically.As folks know i never qent to oz so i was supposedly at the helm of the nottingham soul club,only in person i never had any say in dj,s or anything basucally and let mates manipulate me to be honest. Even for sitting on the door i was not allowed and told i must walk around and mingloe with the crowd etc etc and l;ike a fool i did ... sen chapman night did it for me no comment as i still like poolie and glynn but i walked from my own event so abny body going down there to suppoert me youre going down the wrong path anybody going down to support john and glynn well they got the recordas and still nice blokes ....any body going down to supprt dave tiddswell ...excelant choice another school mate and will play really good stuff case closed good luck down there ...tommo.

Hardly the right forum for this and I must say that I for one am very disappointed that you feel the need to post on here

Why???

I am told that you have said all of this on a social networking site already some time ago and so can't understand what your motives are to bring this up again now?

This topic is here to discuss the good night we had last Saturday

You clearly have issues, and you have my phone number feel free to contact me if you want to discuss this as it would appear that you don't recall everything

I usually don't respond and don't usually feel the need to defend myself but your posts do mis represent the whole situation.

Our first night was a leaving do for you, we have been friends for a long time and you leaving for the other side of the world might have mean't that me and the rest of your mates had the opportunity to say goodbbye in style because if you remember you had originaly planned to go to Oz in the last week in Jan and then it was put back to Feb and then finally in March

When it became clear that you were going to stay in the UK at the end of March both Myself and Glyn asked you on a number of occasions to come back in.

It is obvious now that you are upset about some issues but cannot believe that you feel that you have been manipulated but would much rather discuss this with you face to face as I am sure would Glyn

As you have said we have been friends for a long while and I wouldn't want to lose a long lasting friendship over misunderstandings over a local soul night.

As far as I am concerned the offer for you to be a part of the event still stands.

All you need to do is pick up the phone and ring

well lets put our cards on the table here it wasnt you or glynn that thought of a soul club at the new venture club aka plessey club it was me and i put the home work into geting t the event secured then asked you and glynn to come on board long before the oz sistuation had materialised ok?.You picked the dj,s from day one and i was in a nice way being soft natured manipulated into everything that went off and i just sat back and agreed with it all witch was my sumise looking back in reflection ... the rare room was suppose to be a modern room and i had allready approached somebody to do that room then you changed youre mind and said no it will be a rare room and as usual i went with youre decision ...if id of stood firm it would be a different situation today john and ive not fell out with you still respect you, known you too long mate but i dont want anybody going down there on false pretences that its my venue or im involved and remember lads every venue when you make a shiling its down to me good luck tommo.

to close the matter regarding the nottingham soul club there as been a few misunderstandings and crossed wires over the event regarding myself ,glynn and john, its done with now we cant turn the clocks back so let the club progress forward am, sure people know what great pedigrees glynn and john have regarding soul music, i went to school with glynn and have known his passion for northern for some time weve had a few good laughs over the years and best of luck to glynn ,mr poole now what can i say about poolie hes a shrewd buisness man lol, john is a good lad and as done me many a favour on and off the scene deffinately a likeable chap and can be qiute hilarious if you know properly so best wishes to poolie as for mickey boyle hes just nuts dead funny bloke and finally dave tiddswell another school mate and close friend also in my opinion one of the best up and coming dj,s on the scene at this moment in time ,well deserves respect and more recognition for the fantasdtic spots he does ... i know in the nottingham area people look forward to daves spots at the local events you get no bollox off him genuine time tested oldies and not the same old stuff you hear everyweek ... so carry on chaps and as you were ...tommo.

regarding my comments on here a few days ago just to put the matter to rest a couple of things was mentioned to me witch put a bee in my bonnet ,after a full day of drinking until the early hours the demon drink took hold of me and i said things i truly regret. However iam man enough to appologise when im in the wrong... having had a decent conversation with glynn today id like to put the record straight regarding any misunderstandings ive had with the lads . Most and formost id like to make quite clear john poole as looked after me taking me to various venues as his guest also favours off the scene and weve had some right good laughs ,Hes been a bloody good mate to me on the scene ever since ive known him if i sit back and think about things clearly. Glynn and tidds as ive already mentioned we go back even further to school years,glynns also been a top guy and decent friend a little serious at times but strasight john bull, tidds is just top bloke and dj as for mickey boyle havent known mick long but hes as mad as a hatter ... all the best to this little soul force and the nottingham soul club . tommo.
