Remember it well. Still have the magazine in my archive. I was at art school too, like Graham, but in  Wigan 73 to 76.

The lad in the red piped vest is Big Scotty from Stockport apparently.

Nice post Mike. :thumbsup:

Looking at the faces on some of those photographs makes you think that it wasn't just the Sunday Times that was proper back then!

Remember it well. An excellent take on the Casino at the time. Picked up a copy a few months ago on eBay - it was a joy to read. The Times was, and still is, the best paper on a Sunday bar none so it treated the topic with the reverence it deserved unlike contemporary commentators on the scene who peddle the freak-show/Frank Wilson/mad collectors/dance on the hands stuff that just doesn't wash with long term devotees.

Turned up for school one Monday morning and a lad said to me "you're into that northern soul stuff aren't you? This was in yesterdays paper" 

He gave me the article which I still have, the large photo of which was used in the book to accompany Northern Soul the film...:)

Was it the week before or maybe after that a similar feature was published about the Canvey island 1940s/swing  'revival' or is that a shot away brain cells recall ?

while on the ask

has any scans of 'The Suns' double page feature on Wigan surfaced yet ?

Memory  says it featured large page size cutout of Sandy and Neil (yep?) on each page, can't remember the rest apart from it was what you would expect

Still got a copy from back in the day, if memory serves me right Southport ,Formby, Ormskirk Soul lads feature in pics, Macca and John in there. Longtime ago now, I was just a lad, but Macca was defo The Soulboy in his day.
