Sort of remember going to a soul record shop in Walthamstow in the late 70's & amongst other things picking up a few editions of 'Hot Buttered Soul'

Can anyone confirm if such shop existed?

Waltahmstow is getting popular all of a sudden. Audra, Maria and Alice are running a free night in 'the soul lounge', formerley Bentleys, just down from the station heading towards Bakers Arms. Hoe Street ?? I think.

Good luck to both.

Colin, I remember an independent record shop near the market in Walthamstow about 79/80. I used to go there if my team were playing in London. My mates would trawl thru the punk stuff and I would try to find some soul things. Think I mostly got boots and british stuff that I got rid of tho.

Yes, we tried a night in Leyton but had to stop due to a change of ownership of the venue and lack of support. Having said that we did manage to get a couple of cracking nights in there.

Good luck with Walls of Heartache, will definetly try to get along and I'll try to get a few East London and Essex bodies down there as well.

Cheers

Richard :thumbsup:

I went to a mod alldayer at the Ilford palais in theearly 80s. They had a northern soul dancing comp, and one of the lads kicked off because he was the only one dancing 'northern' and the winners were all mods.

What was the name of the guy who used to run them? A big mod Dj at the time who's name has completely escaped me. Could possibly be Tony or Tim?

Right, there was a shop in the market (still there last time I found myself there), but I don't recall it doing northern.

There was also (c 1979) a shop on Forest Road (I think) - anyway the road that runs north from the top of the market towards the N Circular Rd, that was packed with 10p singles. Kev Griffin found John Drevas Expression in there on MGM pink, and there was a stash of USA Bobby Hutton ABC singles in there as well. It got pretty much trawled over by the local pepperazzi / soul dignitaries, so bargains weren't so easy to find, but they were there, and we often came back with armfulls of stuff, and still had change from a tenner for a pint as well.

Leytonstone was Jim Wilson's shop "Ebony sounds" - good for cheap imports in it's day, and before Jim discovered "The Beatles" :thumbsup: - in the row of shops right by Leytonstone Station.

That might be the one I was talking about. Like said, it was near the market.

If it is, then there used to be a guy behind the counter who was Canadian. He used to tell my punk mates about him meeting the Ramones.

Apologies for my spelling yesterday. Parking on side streets near the cavern in easy (Howard Road, Fuller Road, Hurst Road - all E17) and non-permit on Saturday evenings.

The wonderful Small Wonder record shop used to be up the road in Hoe St. - my wife bought all her punk singles there.

Wood Street Antiques market has six record shops - one of which is a great blues and soul shop run by Alan aka Capt Vinyl.

Would love to see some of you folks there on the 29th - help us make it regular as we only have the first 2 written in blood. Venue's not bad at all and NO we won't be showing films from the sex shops opposite.

Thanks for those kind words - lost contact with Kev, last I heard he was a chef in Mayfield (Sussex), and my ex missus saw his mum a few years ago in Tonbridge, and he was ok then, but that's it. Most of the rest of the Kent crowd are still in tact though, and make cameo appearances at weekenders / London events from time to time. Good to hear you are well and still around. rolleyes.gif

Hi there, you mention Sean Adams in your message. I don't suppose that you know where he is these days? I really liked Sean and he seemed to drop off the map for a while so I have not seen him since Skegness Weekended a few years back ( I think) he was off his face running around and just being Sean. Any info would be much appreciated if anyonr out there knows anything. Cheers Benzer

Eddie Piller of Acid Jazz used to have a big hand in running these.

The 1st Ilford Palais was run by a fella called Andy Ruw. He also ran a few "mod" clubs back then in 80/81. Basically they were awful unless you liked a diet of The Monkees and Insy weeny bikini.

So four of us decided to do it ourselves.. Me (mappy) Eddie Piller, Dean Port and Ray (patriotic) Margetson. We did 3 or so Alldayers and also started a few club nights off. One being the Regency Suite in Chadwell Heath. If your on Facebook check out my group for photos and flyers from the time

I'm pretty sure Tony Class never did an alldayer in Ilford although i was out of the scene by 84
