Yep - we're back with Solid Hit Soul on the 15th December - looking forward to it already!

Paul - I remember joining you and Spena behind the decks during the early '90s! You should check Jon Buck's photo album on Soul Source, as he has quite a few pics from there (don't forget to ask his permission first tho!).

A number of promoters used this venue Jon Buck and Sean McClusky spring immediately to mind. I remember attending a modern night about '88( ?)promoted by the "Bad Cat Soul Club" they put on some good modern nights in central London during the 80's whatever happened to them?

Oxford's was on Tottenham Court Road, Ken. I used to the cloakroon there, when Wednesday nights taken over by DeMob (Sean. Baz Riley etc).

Drummonds was always a good night, This was mid eighties. A lot of people from who were into Northern seemed to live within a 2 mile radius of Kings Cross at that time. :unsure:

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE :unsure:

Great little venue and have fond memories of when Bucky and Sue were running it, loads of Modern and a good vibe! Anyone remember the night when it all kicked off with the Manchester United football fans, they went mental and it was a full scale riot going on as we were grooving upstairs - told to stay behind the doors by the old bill, just as he trunched some guy over the head! My wife and I used to go and then pop into the fetish allmighters across London at the time to promote out fetish wear business, most of which jane was wearing at the venue each time! I can still see Jons grinning face even now lol

Maybe I'm having a senior moment, but didn't this flyer make an appearance on here not that long ago, Ken? Or am I just dreaming it?

I'm sure I remember as I was very surprised to see this, particularly as that's me in it. Instantly recognisable in the background is Ion because of his 'knees-bent/lean-back' dance style.

I am probably confusing it but it sounds really familiar...Kirsty?

Use to travel up to this do from the South Coast. Recall a guy called Richard Franklin playing Love Starved heart/Come on back to me baby and other unissued motown tracks from a 10" acetate which I jokingly asked of him to "giz it" one night. Surprisingly he asked for my name and address and albeit about 3 months later it arrived. Hardly knew the guy but restored my faith in human nature.

As for the nights at Drummonds they were thoroughly enjoyable - right opposite either Euston or St Pancras if I'm not mistaken.

Jon Buck used to do nights there too and bloody good they were. Ive a few pics I will mail you and a few great stories, like the time there was a riot going on downstairs with Man U fans whilst we were dancing upstairs and we weren't allowed out! It was like a scene from a Western, glasses lobbed around, windows going in, ah those were the days

We watched Ireland in the 1990 World Cup in the downstairs bar before heading upstairs. Got delayed by a strippergram who did her stuff to a poor bloke. Will never forget the look on his face. Afterwards, fully naked she just put her fur coat on and left for her next gig...

I see Wayne Pallett in the background which means I'll be in there somewhere - it's where I met Pete (Brian Rae sent him my way to get sorted). Used to be a great warmup - some really good stuff being played. Looks like the back of Richard Franklin or possibly Steve Smith on the left.
