No bullshit Dob it's Steve Brookstien all right and an Ian Levine production, pretty sure it did get a release as well. It's certainly been issued on a couple of CD's

:D For my sins I like 'Wrong Side Of Town' despite Mr Levine's finger prints all over it. It's just a pity we had all the very dubious and silly games played over it by certain people who should know better!!! That said, ceratin people should also be gratful Mrs Osbournes not a northern Soul fan - can you imagine what she'd have done with them and their....you get the picture :D:D Edited by TheBigO

=========

Isn't it a matter of preference though? Personally I think it's not bad, and very danceable. Can anybody tell me (honest question) was it released to chart....or was it aimed mainly at the northern fraternity?

:angry: I think you'll find winnie that it was aimed at ripping off certain DJ's by passing it off as an original 60's 45 - hence the deft hands of Boxing Ginger Taylor at Stoke! No amount of spin doctoring can change the fact. Sad really as it is a good record IMHO (although ripped off Dan Folger chorus!)

* Thats 'Wrong Side Of Town' I'm talking about by the way - anyone seen the film clip that goes with this?

He (Steve) is that good, he was booed off stage t'other night :(:( , not once, not twice but three times :yes::( forgot the words as well blush.gif:(

He also said according to the radio that skeletons in his cupboard will ruin his career :yes: I bet his career doesn't get off the ground, he'll sink faster than the titanic blush.gif Still a million quid ain't bad I suppose for a Karaoke singer :lol:

Dissagree, I think we are going to see him in the charts a lot.

And yes, I loved wrong side of town, perfect dancer for me. But I do not in anyway agree with the way it was sold to the scene

There may be a little bit of interest in him initially, but when you consider the other winners of various talent shows.....I don't think it will last too long.

I forgot, it was someone on the radio saying what happened. He was doing an appearance at a night club or summat like that I think.

Probably because the end bit of the chorus is a direct clone of "Downtown"...also the earlier part of the melody is borrowed from Trinity "We Love The Pirate Stations".

Sorry Pete, you´re dead wrong there!, I always loved Peter Hamilton(inst.) and played it regularly in the early 90´s when it was largely forgotten, on hearing the vocal, instantly hated it, tailor made rubbish!

See me after school!

I'm not jumping on the bandwaggon, but I don't like the record. And I made my mind up after listening to it before I knew all the background to it.

It just sounds like it should sit one of those CD comps 'Northern Soul For The New Millenium' type thingys, which should read 'Manufactured Bontempi Pap Northern For Supermarkets'.

It just does not sound right, even with the benefit of hindsight.

Just my two-penneth.
