Hello From Brighton

Recommended Posts

Hi NKOTB here

 

Based in Brighton now. 

 

Formerly London and before that St Helens.

 

Went to Wigan a few times in my youth (yes I go back that far) and have always had a strong interest in Northern Soul since.

 

Set up Notre Dame in the eighties and noticed a few comments on this site the other night so I thought I'd join up to share some memories.

 

I was the Gary who did the first hour and fed the Northern Soulies with sounds.  Toski then took over for a mixture of soul music which was more focussed on the mainly mod crowd.  Great atmosphere and lots of good times.  Great soul venue as Notre Dame had a proper wooden dance floor. 

 

I got on the list to be an extra in Elaine Constantine's film "Northen Soul"  Seen a few clips on TV and am looking forward to seeing the file - when it finally comes out.  Shame I cant be at the screening in Manchester which happens soon.
