Neil Rushton:

Q: What are you up to now? What are the plans for the future?

 

A: I’ve almost finished a revamp of my book ‘Northern Soul Stories’ to celebrate 10 years of the original release.

I went to a lecture at Salford Uni a good few years ago, Lucy Gibson presented it.  Tim Wall, Nicola Smith and Ady Croasdell spoke at this lecture.  Is this where the parts for the above books are taken?

This was the lecture I think...

Jeez, can't believe that was 2010! Was an interesting lecture, we were a tough crowd lol

I have the PowerPoint presentation for Lucy's lecture somewhere and her synopsis. Apart from Ady of course, she was the only one that got it.

Pretty sure I have a recording of the lecture ads well as all the synopsis etc that you have.  Yes it was interesting and we were tough on them and rightly so as they has so much wrong IMO.  Hopefully if they did use that as the basis of the book they got it right.  

I will probably buy the paperback version of the book or the e-reader, not sure how they can justify £75 for the hardback???

PS I couldn't believe it was nearly 9 years ago either.

Not about soul music as such, but has strong connections ...

… author Shaun Knapp will be launching his book, Mods: Two City Connection, at our Dungeon Club Reunion at The Newmarket on March 29th from 3pm -5pm.  The book utilises first-hand accounts and photographs that tell the story of the sixties Mod scene in Nottingham and Leicester. It also forms the basis of the Mods: Shaping a Generation exhibition which takes place in Leicester in April, May and June.

Yes still working on my book (alongside my two helpers) its been quite a challenge but it has to be right, of course once its printed then it is too late to change. I get asked by someone every week have I finished the book yet, its all very encouraging and I thank you for that. Please stay with me on this project I wont let you down. Most will know the general outline of this project but for those who don't here is a basic run down. 

     I tell the story of the 5 trips I made to Detroit with various fellows from the UK 85-94 Its not about just records more about the interaction and the quality time I spent with those super stars that not only formed our lives but through their music gave us our lives, its their legacy going forward. Its not meant to be about me but its a story that in most cases only I can tell.

     How proud in being responsible for (through ACE/KENT) bringing the likes of Little Ann Bridgforth, OC Tolbert, Dave Hamilton for every ones pleasure, living at Richard "Popcorn" Wylie's house for several days and going over to Duke Browner's house for a couple of hours, and even fainting in Pat Lewis's bathroom one time. Tony Johnson of Tony and Tyrone fame pissing on Andy "Tats" Taylor's shoes when in a Detroit bar. 

     With the book I hope will be a DVD of footage taken of those stars at that time and some photos never seen before. Book forwarded by Sharon McMahan, its my book and even I cant wait, but I do hope you will.

Someone should do a book about the 1st incarnation of the Prestatyn Weekenders …. including both the NS event & the autumn Motown event … so many top acts came over here during those times & were interviewed about their 'lives & times'. Plus, all the details of their exploits here in the UK and the fantastic live shows they put on could also be included. There's certainly 1000's of photos around to perfectly illustrate such a book. Facts on the various rooms & their music policies, the use made of Pontin's on-site TV / broadcast facilities should also be included. What the DJ's got up to could also form part of a chapter too.

Forgot to mention (no its not a sales ploy) when this book does come out I intend for every book sold to donate £2 to go towards the stroke unit at Kettering General Hospital, as some will know I spent Xmas in there and those people work so hard its the right thing to do
