I never meant this to tern into a scooterist v soulies debate, in fact, initially, I genuinely had no idea that these images originated from the scooter scene.

Without a doubt particuarly over the last few years the scooter scene has made a great contribution to the northern scene, musically and socially, by helping to feed some of the larger nighters and weekenders with fresh faces, often with far less preconceptions than many soulies. Cross- pollunation between the two scences has always existed and I hoped endeared respect to one and other. However they are both very different and there will inevitably be areas where they clash. what I resent is the idea that these iconic, albeit cheesey images can be used in this way. That word 'faith' used to mean a lot to me and at times is the only thing that keeps me going on the scene, yes I still believe it has value and worth! This is my musical and cultural heritage, and I'm not going to stand by and see it knocked without saying something, sorry is thats not very post modern. Keep the Faith baby, Really!

Just been reading this and I have to admit when I tell the lay person I go out dancing and they ask what kind of dancing,

I say motown/black 60's soul music.

When I tell them Northern Soul I then have to go on to explain what N/S is and I just can't be arsed anymore.

Or I am asked if I wear circle skirts / fred perry shirts etc (stereotyped) which I don't....haven't since my teens.

As for it being W**k that's a personal opinion pure and simple no one is forcing it down their throats ...probably when they say they're off to a scooter rally folks think they dance to N/S which of course most don't

I go to numerous scooter rallies and without exception now dont bother to attend the accompanying (nothern/soul event) this is for various reasons but mainly because what they offer in terms of music and the mindless minority of scooterist who go there to get pissed and act like prats .

all the best to the decent folk who attend but its not for me.

if I want northern soul then there is usually something on close by that has nothing to do with the scooter rally which I will go to, or settle for a quiet night chilling in some pub with a few likeminded mates,

have seen the shirts and hey there not big and certainly not clever

Not really that interesting a thread, and i could care less but for me the term 'Northern Soul' now represents an oldies night, baggy trousers, circle skirts etc,etc, it just doesn't seem to represent the cutting edge anymore ( and probably hasn't for years ), i feel the more progressive nights seem to adopt the term 'Rare Soul' and have for a good many years, in a way i suppose distancing themselves from the Sainsburys checkout 'Best Northern Soul Ever Cd' mentality ( if you know what i mean..! ) As a teenager 'Northern Soul' to me was underground and cool, but it's as far removed from cool as it could ever be for me, i'm just a soul music fan, i embrace over 47 years of music, not just a narrow band of say 4 years (64-68 ?). I actually find the t-shirts, badges mildly amusing, i always hated it when people said 'Keep the Faith'..do me a favour....

yep they do unless dukesy or sean chapman are the djs(and me) its the usual tried and tested standard oldies,if you played an obscure track(an under played oldie lets say) it would clear the floor except for those of us who are regulars at soul events,but then again the other styles of music played are the "same old same old" as well,but us northern soulies who ride scoots cant be arsed getting badges and t-shirts to change this(we dont care for this childishness),as were usually to busy partying

I've heard Dukesy play some shocking tracks down the years too, but then if you want to fill the floor... And you can add me to that list too, I've DJed off and on since the NRC days, but over recent years have had fewer jobs due to my attitude of 'I will not play the usual crap'. At the moment there are only two clubs that will employ me! (Although I've been approached by my local club to do a major event next year.... I'm considering it, but given my current tendency to load my set with modern ska, probably not! I'm sure you appreciate that The Green Room Rockers go down about as well as decent rare soul....)

Like I care, you'll never make a living at it

As for the original designer being a mod/tramp/whatever? If you stood next to him in a pub, you'd not know he was a scooter rider, short but tidy hair, bit of a very short goatee beard, usually in plain t-shirts and jeans. He's just an ordinary bloke who loves scooters, loves punk and psychobilly music, and really doesn't 'get' northern soul.

BTW LambrettaNik, do I know you?

I know Juan Kerr, or Chunk as I know him, and have DJ'ed at local Scooter Club nights with him playing his stuff. Anyway, I am sure this anti NS thing is all about them wanting less NS being played at Scooter nights, rather than a targeted dig at our scene. It's just a wind-up and as such is best ignored or indeed laughed at.

Sorry Brett but you are stereotyping the folks who still enjoy oldies me for one, I attend these nights and have already said I don't wear the uniform.(I have no objections to anyone who does, a personal choice)

I'm still hearing new stuff too, but I was on the younger end of the original soul era (hate the phrase soul scene) and so I havent heard every oldie yet.

I have also tried rare soul nights provided by Steve L. and the crew the black bull mansfield and they do a sterling job too!

Admittedly I've bought a Tesco compilation lately and a lot I hadn't heard so don't knock it :wink: maybe because I'm not a collector either ( I'm a dancer) and I don't say KTF either!

Hi Mand, yeah i think my reply was a bit curt ( but i am a man, and can be very moody :wink: ), i have no objection to the way anyone dresses, free world etc, and i also love a lot of the oldies, i think the point i was trying to make was how the term Northern Soul has been commercialised over the years, Kentuckey fried chicken adverts, 'Best Northern Soul Ever' CD, like i mentioned back when i was a teenager the term for me was associated with a cool underground scene, i guess i romantically would have liked it to have kept that way, i don't often attend Northern events anymore, not really my area of soul, but i did attend the excellent Lifeline nighter earlier in the year, and also the Bamberg weekender, and enjoyed what i believe to be the cutting edge 60's sounds, played by the scene's finest dj's. Like i said i feel the term 'Northern' is largely associated with revivalist nights, playing tried and tested favourites, nothing wrong with that, but some way along the line the term has lost its unique sparkle for me.

I hear ya soul brother :lol: (kiddin) I did call someone this on my fb the other day (lighthearted humour)

I do agree with what you say tho trouble is "northern soul " is part of our heritage/history and it is starting to sound "dated"

I also said (previous post) that I tell the folks I dance to motown/60's black soul as you say attempt to make it sound fresher

even if it is decades old :yes:

When we started the friendship nights we were concious not to use the tag line of "Northern" as its seemed to have pidgeon holed music, when i was looking for a venue we were at a bar in hudersfield and the owner said " is it that Heel and toe type dancing" i thought well yeh Northern is a particular dance style that suites a certain style of music but Soul is more than that. so we had "pure soul" 60's 70's etc.

when my big, in her 60's, sister got into the scene it was "Rhythm and Soul"

But i do think when I see Northern on a flyer i assume now its an oldies night

I suppose the term "Northern" creates a bretheren, .....gather round brother.... gather round :D

There are bits & bobs connected with Northern Soul as in real life that one can do without!!! But for me Northern Soul incorporates many many positive things. After all it describes it more or less with just two words what it is all about. Great people, fantastic & unique dancing, the travelling, the passion, the collecting, the support for the original artist, the friendship and foremost great music. Mind you I believe Northern Soul in the real world always consisted of some funky tunes, beat ballads, crossover, stompers, oldies, underplayed, rare bla bla bla. The mix is important and from time to time it will shift from one side to the other. Northern Soul should not only be just a term largely associated with revivalist nights, playing tried and tested favourites!!!! For me it includes lifeline and many other upfront nights!!!

But hey, people were arguing about it in the UK since the early days but soon your scene is going to get smaller and only a hardcore crowd of open-minded people will remain next to some youngsters. Then Northern Soul with its many styles will probably go back like it did in the eighties were you could hear obscure monsters next to some oldies at just a few nights around the country. The same old same old will lose its appeal in the long run by the law of boredom even to the close-minded brigade!!!! The good thing is, people started to use more and more the term Oldies and Motown Nights rather than Northern Soul, which is great because a proper Northern Soul All-nighter should mix it up in styles and contend!!!!

Keep the face :hypo:

I am 55 years old and have more get ups behind me than in front of me so I personally dont want to be looking back . The born again comment related specificly to scooter rallies and the blinkered lowest common denominator approach musically in any particular genre .

Northern soul is part of scootering , scootering isnt part of the northern soul scene . I enjoy both scenes and have a totally different approach to them both .

I dont feel at all agrieved or anoyed by these patches/ badges etc because if you are a scooterist that doesnt like northern soul and has it foisted on him/her at every rally or event then yes northern soul is wank .

Funny this should crop up. Had some friends round at the weekend and we were have a good old time of it, as you do, swapping stories about or respective 'good old days'.

One of our friends (an Italian with connections to the Italian and European Mod scene) was telling us that there is a growing desire among sections of the Italian Mod scene (and possibly among other European contingents) to move away from the label, cult and associated paraphernalia of Northern Soul.

Soul music from the 60s in particular should be labelled as such, they believe, and not given the name tag of a regional and obscure youth cult from 70s Great Britain. 60s Soul should have it's own identity and be appreciated and understood in the context of 1960s America, not the perspective of the UK.

Fans of the music should be saying - "that's a great 60s soul 45" - and not - "that's a great Northern Soul 45". After all, there is no such music as Northern Soul, only a cult that sprang up through an appreciation of 60s soul music.

Possibly there is a stronger trend to disassociate from Northern Soul and all its historical trappings than may be realised.

I think most would say thats a great tune/record

Definately hid it in a side street. Thinking about it it was around summer 75. On an LI 150. Had stopped going to the Casino for a couple of months due to police/parent pressure, but I used to get the free coach to the Mecca. Had a couple of particularly good nights in Blackpool, and therefore couldn't sleep, so it was back home on the coach, wheel the scoot down the road before starting up & riding to Wigan. As I say, It only happened a couple of times, I was soon ungrounded & continued with the weekly nighter visits. I do remember though around that time a brand new Vespa Rally 200 in red being parked next to the ABC Cinema.

Perhaps you were not really looking.
