Is there an email address I can be added to when it's released Dave, so I can jump straight onto a copy? Cheers

Not really, but it’ll be advertised on here and fb.

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.

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.
