Exciters Live

Posted (edited)

Not to sure of this as my memories a bit blurred but did the exciters play live at one of the early wirrina all nighters?Seem to remember seeing them there but as must of us  know some of those early memories can be a little bit more blurred than others.Over recent years while away from the scene I was always questioning whether I really went to a soul night in Bedford mid seventies with Wilky,Rug and Gav from Wellingborough until somone on this forum martyn I believe confirmed for me those events did take place among many others ha ha.The Wirrina one has been playing around in memory and surfacing a lot recently that I put down to knowing theres a Wirrina revival all dayer soon.Can someone either confirm or tell me that exciters was "Just my imagination".

Hi there,

They did play live at a Leeds all-nighter along with Mel and Tim and a few others. It was a big one off maybe in the Market Hall or Corn Exchange in 1974. Still have the tickets, remember the night especially as it was the first time I heard Saxie Russell and The Slow Fizz, but can't remember what I had for tea last Thursday. LOL.

The Leeds all-nighter was in an old tram station, I think it was called The Queens Hall, there was also JJ Barnes and Major Lance headlining...

Thanks for that, I thought Major Lance was on as well. Someone else also informed me that it was in a tram depot but I thought it was in the centre somewhere. Glad to hear that there are still survivors from this era. You'll be telling me next that you attended Harrisons Hoist All nighters in Earby, my home town? LOL.

Remenber all the as we called them Emi descs that were floating around our way back ,there was a big batch of them them exciters,evelyn thomas included of those Levine sounds just before they were released,I was also lucky then that two mates of mine Wilky and Rug had top notch collections with Wilky especially having more than a few of the big sounds of the time and also from earlier,I spent many entertaining hours round Wilkys mums as did Rug where they would play sounds on a little mono record player over which they sounded as what they were ,brilliant.Now and again there would be visitors round Wilkys mums like Soul Sam,Brian Rae,TonyDellar etc  and his mum knew them all really well and would sit having tea with them.Lovely lady,one of the best blessher, was  Wilkys mum .
