P.S....had many happy days more than nights in Wigan throughout the 90's! On the way home from Blackburn I would steer the mini bus and convoy to Mick Lyons place ..The Temple Of Sound'. I was the only one he allowed to refer it to as The Temple of Doom'....because it was,,,, unless you were 'hard core'!x

As you walked in at 9am Sunday morning ..it was 'banging' upstairs with LOOOOUD D&B....!!! Then in the back of the ground floor there was Jungle kicking and plinking! Then...we went down t'pit! A winding stair case to the basement...King Colemannnnn style!x Decks....chill areas...all sorted and waiting ...for the dayer! Me...i'm sure Shifty and a few others who were  DJ's had a go first to get things going...and it was a free for all....with about 100 there by 11am! We'd leave to come back South about 12.....and loved every occasion! So Wigan...for me...has many happy memorys....that add...compliment....many of those had by you fortunate to go to theee Wigan...when it was 'happening'!x We did our bit to jeep the name flying...!x A happy day....and can't be ars*d to do the records on Ebay now either...so....tomorrow...a new day!x Have a good evening!x

Apparently the Wigan Athletic football team are going to do an open top tour of the town - Martinez and his players are all going to dress up in vest tops and baggies and Russ Winstanley will be driving the bus around the local shopping mall.

 

Wigan football club have said a special Adidas bag FA cup patch is going to be made available for all those who never actually went to Wembley...

An interesting thing is this Zed1....I travel the country in all guises and vehidles. I meet 'the people' and hear their understanding of life. In my say 30 years of 'travelling' daily....I would say that Wigan is still known for Northern...than anything else! Those who danced to Weakspot and LJ Johnsons Your Magic Put A Spell On Me in youth clubs had heard of Wigan....I was one of them!!x So...the scene does have it's association firmly planted in the Nations psyche....my survey sez!x Like the Casino....i'm sure the football teams exploits will be remembered in 30 years time! But....by then...our grandkids will be talking about the casino....60 years on....!x The kids are the key!x Time may pass us by...and football matches....but the music will live on....I reckon...X

I played Rugby....but until you said that.....I never even thought of it.....honest!x

...erm...and 25 years later...I wouldn't be able to tell u if I played Union...or League.......and until you said League for Wigan....I would have had a 50% chance of getting it right......so i'm normal.......tell Swifty will yer!x
