What Happened Next

Recommended Posts

I've managed to get hold of a book called 'What Happened Next: Northern Soul's Greatest Records, And How The Stories End'

For instance, in Dearly Beloved, Jack Montgomery famously sings: 'Dear beloved, I'm writing this letter...just to let you know, thing's ain't gettin' no better.'

What happened next, apparently, was that his girlfriend, Rita, wrote back saying: 'I've had enough of your whingeing you miserable bastard. The glass is always half-empty with you, isn't it? Oooh, 'things ain't gettin no better'? Where's my bleeding rope? You are the MOST depressing man I've ever met. You're right, things ain't gettin no better - FOR YOU! I've just started shagging your mate Tyrone, so there.'

A fascinating read.

Aparently the yet to be found original version of - you shook me up, was an ode by Ella Fitzgerald to her vibrator. Apparently Victor Meldrew can be heard in the background saying 'I don't believe it'

Apparently Howard Guyton was an accomplished mountaineer. "I Watched You Slowly Slip Away" was reference to a tragic mountaineering accident where the lead climber fell and despite Howard hanging on to the rope for some 8 and a half hours in arctic conditions, his frost bitten fingers eventually gave way and his fellow climber slipped away in all senses of the word(s). Tragic.

There's a good bit about Ray Pollard, too. Shortly after releasing The Drifter, he was arrested and sentenced to 90 days in the county jail for vagrancy. Apparently, people had seem him going from place to place and assumed he was up to no good.

And after The Impressions released Gypsy Woman, they found 30 caravans parked on their lawns, with a load of untaxed 4x4s parked up nearby, with old fridges and sofas dumped everywhere and some bird with eyes like a cat in the dark trying to flog them pegs and heather. They refused, she cursed them and we all know what happened after that.

I actually heard that Ray Pollard was successfully sued by Ben E King and Johnny Moore for impersonating a member of a popular male vocal group.

After Bobby Freeman sang 'one day I'm a big man, the next day oh so small' (I'll never fall in love again), Pele sent him a leaflet on erectile problems.

Ann Peebles - I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down. Due to a breach of planning laws said playhouse was actually removed by the council's contractors. An appeal has been launched.

Guitar Ray - You're gonna wreck my like. Rays predictions were correct, she did.

Walter Jackson - Where Have All The Flowers Gone? Nobodys too sure, but global warming is suspected.

Willie Tee - Walking Up A 1 Way Street. Willie was knocked over by a cyclist & is recouperating. He has vowed to be more careful in the future.

Johnny Hendley received a call from an ex lover explaining she had just given birth to his baby daughter.

A shocked Johnny sat down and penned the emotive "My baby came from out of nowhere". Yes she did, yes she did, yes she did.
