Just been listening to that Frank Popp - Hip Teens 45, and think that backing track is awesome. :lol: The intro is Edward Hamilton's I'm gonna love you, but then it changes, anybody know where the rest of it comes from ?

Sorry Quinvy, but (imho) a terrible manufactured tune from LULU, an insult to use the intro to an absolute classic like that laugh.gif

Got to agree with Gabriel here.

In this video, why is mr. Popp DJ-ing there? what does this contribute to the song?

Did you see the crowd, not very enthusiastic.

Cheers, Martin

PS: But the girl is pretty good looking.

BIZARRE!! Where they from? and how the hell do they produce that big Detroit sound with a couple of guitars and a trombone? Or is it all coming from the Technics 1200 that the guy at the back is playing about with? And if it is whats on the turntable?

They are from Germany. Hannover I think, but I'm not sure.

This song got popular because it was played in german tv. About how they produce their sound - I don't know, could have told you, if I would have gone to the concert here in Bamberg but missed it.

LULU? where you getting lulu from ? the vocals are by sam leigh-brown who co-wrote it , as are the vocals on You've Been Gone To Long .

got it on the original album ( the one with the chopper on it not the scooter fronted one that contained breakaway )so never felt the need to buy the single and can't believe the money it will go for considering it wasn't THAT long ago you could've went to the blow-up website and bought it for £4

and anyway stripper girl with sam paglia was restricted to 500 copies so that (i think) makes it rarer lol

It's a thundering tune that I heard Vinnie McGuire of Freak street play at the old Sunday Soul sessions at Nice'n'Sleazy. It was a number 1 in Germany.Thanks for the clip but I do believe they're miming.

My son asked me to DJ a night at the Student union with him and his pals. They got 200 in which was pretty good and one of the records that got them moving was Hip Teens. It's a good pop record.

A couple of the other DJ's asked about it and they tracked copies down.

The album's pretty good too with a good version of You've been gone too long and Coming Home Baby.

It may or may not be Northern Soul but it's very danceable.

Great tune :wicked: . My 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son think that this is great. They really want to go and see them in the Isle of Wight. But they did add that after seeing the clip that they were definetly miming :lol: . And yes they are from Germany.

I'm bloody sure they're miming, that big sound can't be coming from those few instruments. It's deffo not the Detroit Land Apples, though it is similar...

And the girl is STUNNING! :wicked:

Just my dodgy ears again Davie :D , remember i reckoned "John Bowie" sounds like "David Bowie" (still do ! :D )

Actually thinking about it, it wasn't me who said it first in this instance, my mate played it to me & said "have you heard this crap that they are raving about, it's f***ing LULU i reckon singing to a backing track" . Which may be why the bloke in the video is playing a record, it's probably "Hip Teens" by LULU but she was too ashamed to release it !! :D

In fact my mate Frank is from D¼sseldorf and has been into Soul muisc for a very long time. He started with his "unique club" -nights years ago. The female singer is in fact from Manchester, so you see a England/Germany Co-production :D I personally think he is doing a very fine job and what he does for sure is bringing new people (mostly aged under their thirties) into Soul, which can`t be that bad can it ?

would have thought hip teens could be called an oldie now anyway :D

as for rest Marc yep a big :) from me

if compare any of similar recent northern influenced stuff like Frank Popp etc to the majority of those efforts that those 'involved' with northern have dished out in the past then there's no argument imo

Brilliant stuff imo, luv it!

The vocal does sound like Lulu, that was my first impression but that's not a bad thing in my book, it's a good soul/pop dancer with energy.

I quite like what they do. I'm toying with the idea of going to see them on the Isle Of Wight on Saturday, but I'll probably just got to the Crown Hotel for the Northern.

Don't really understand this position.

As others have said it's a good 'poppy' dancer with a 60's type sound. In this age does it matter how they created the sound as long as they got somewhere close!

Again I agree with an earlier post about it being a good thing if a commercial effort like this makes a few youngsters look further into the music/scene.

Jeeeeeees, In view of the posts recently about attendances at soul do's etc don't knock something that may contribute even a little to getting the youngsters hooked on the music we love.

Just my opinion of course. :thumbsup:

KTF.

have seen them twice at New Untouchables nighters, and they put on a good show, with a proper band (not the people who were miming in that clip - well i assume miming, the sound wasn't working for me).

At exactly 53 seconds into the track (on the video), the first sample of the Detroit Land Apples comes in. You must surely be able to hear it.

Hi Marc!

You may be right that younger people are attracted to Northern Soul by this song. It's still not very soulful imho. A sixties style pop record imo.

The only problem I see, is that they exspect you to play that kinda stuff, because this must be Northern Soul and Northern Soul has to be the Frank Popp Ensemble way. You know, I'm living in a students town...

Best, Martin

PS: Still under my thirties and also found out about soulful music and glad that there is still very much to find out about it. :rolleyes:

It's still miles better than this so called R & B and dance shite that's been in the charts for the last decade or more

Pete,

Ditto to that. Have heard enough of this R & B / RAP crap indoors to last me a bloody lifetime. Have tried to educate the kids in what music should sound like, they've grown up with it, so as TESCO says - EVERY LITTLE HELPS smile.gif:rolleyes:

Is right.

Off course the whole thing is playback and was shot at some godawful music award thingy years ago. The singer in that clip is not the original singer but some model that stood in for Sam as she could not be at the show.

Frank also DJs here and there and may I say does a good job imho from what I have experienced around the D¼sseldorf area. He plays top tunes and non of them are in anyway as commercial as Hip Teens.

Basically, he/the band got a load of people interessted in soul (yes, I agree its a pop tune) and Frank then plays them the good stuff when they go to hear him DJ.

Can't be bad in my view. But that's just my tuppence worth.

I've always thought there was a bit of Little Richard in there too but never fully cheked it out. Theres a very familiar spoken/shout bit 'Hey everybody' on the 45 that I can't put my finger on. Its not the same in the video clip and is sung over.

I was never crazy about the vocal but as a production, an idea and an execution the whole thing is f**cking brilliant.
