Another New Old'un Signing In

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all , figured it was about time I joined up after lurking in the shadows for ages ...  :wink:


Not been particularly active on the scene of late but I've never lost my love of the music over the years.


Got into it back around '79/80 , the usual transition from the Mod scene hearing some 'obscure' Motown at local clubs and then a visit to Max Rees' treasure trove on the cattle market in Cambridge which introduced me to the wonderful world of 'northern soul' ... 


First 'niter was at the Wirrina after a club do , the rest of the 'gang' were sound asleep by 3am but I was well and truly hooked and spent the next few years hitching up and down to Leicester Oddfellows , Norwich , Stafford , 100Club , Ritz , Blackburn , Gloucester , Cottons , Griffin Hotel , Keele , St Ives , Ely Maltings not to mention countless soulnights here and there.


Favourite DJ's in no particular order ... Max Rees , Ady C , Butch , Guy , Keb , Irish Greg , Dean A , Big Scotty , Mick S , R Searling , Carl F , Shifty , Kev Fev , Soul Sam , Roger B , Mark B , Lenny D , Andy Rix ... etc , etc , etc ...


A whole cross-section of styles 'floats my boat' from fast and furious to nice and mellow , accumulated a 'few' bits and pieces over the years , mainly cheaper things as I never had the funds for anything too pricey , best thing in my box is an 8" acetate of Hayes Cotton "Black Wings" , (Session1/Take1) that took me forever to get hold of after endless pestering of Dean A at the 100Club many moons ago.


An "All-nighter" for me these days usually means a 6 hour stint in the back garden with a telescope under a clear star-filled sky (with headphones on and sweet soulful sounds to accompany me) ... but plan to get back to the 100Club very soon for another education , high time I tipped up with another bottle of bubbly for Uncle Ady methinks ...  :thumbsup:


Steve .
