Thanks to all who provided new interesting features for the forthcoming NSOUL mag(due at Prestatyn)

As a final article, I am looking for anyone who can not only remember what happened in the year of 1987.

My own recollection is fairly hazy as the Northern revival hadn't really kicked in.

Myber you know otherwise?

Coupled with this, what sounds were on the turntables in '87

I need approx 500 words. Email me at info@goldsoul.co.uk

Reminds me of the urban myth about the Aussie version of Mr and Mrs.

The girl was asked the most unusual place she had had sex.

She replies "up the bum".

Talking of winning lambretta's.

Has anyone seen Russel Mitchell on the 'Men and Motors' program about bike customising in the States.

I remember russ as a shy 16 year old coming to Dursley Scooter club with the rest of the Frampton-on-Severn lads. Nicely suited and booted, on a Vespa 50. Not too long later he built Excalibur(??), look at him now! :thumbsup:

No, but it had a preservation order on it, mine you get more sun in the garden now! The garage was demolished!!

Mine you my parents dont have much luck, few years later, some woman parked her car outside their house, forget to put the handbrake on! As my parents house is on a hill, car went down the hill and into the house, the Police couldnt believe it when my mother rang saying I get into the house because a car is blocking the front door - literally!!! :thumbsup::lol:

Absolutely.

He's a fully trained Vet. I remember his parents giving him the money to customise a Lambretta when he passed his final exams.

Could be Exile. He has made so many its hard to remember.

The Dursley Scooter club, did change its name to Nipple Gnashers, but to us older guys , its always just the Dursley Scooter club. Tho on the first night it was decided we would call it, Dursley District Dynamo's. Kev Nelmes had a load of badges made by Paddy Smith (then a club member). And we decided it was a stupid name so went with DSC.

We had a 25 anniversary do 18 months ago and the lads, Duncan Ball and Andy Bendall made a herculean effort in getting everyone there, and photos on display from every year the club has been on the rallies.

I was 18 in one at Scarboro in 1981 and look 13. Classic.

Do you know any of the lads then??

Mikey, I know this is quite a way off, but I'm planning on going to Saracen's in March. I got the week off work and my mate (brother-in-law) lives in Brockworth near Cheltenham/Gloucester. If you're there I'll buy you a pint. :D

Was there an entry requirement.. :ohmy::(

I am hopeful of getting a pass. Its a really good night, and it would be good to finally meet you.

I will of course be wearing my Scooter Club issue, white smock and Wellies, complete with Bristol City number 1 sew on badge.

On that note. Just as rivetting.

The Retail Prices Index was rebased. ph34r.gif

Didn't you borrow said jumper to wear to the first Lifeline....?  :ohmy:   ph34r.gif

I'd never fit into one of Faldo's efforts.

Also - note our choice of colour scheme: Nick's 'yellow lightning' Lyle and Scott effort is no match for my red Aquascutum 80s revival effort.

Hammy

PS - Faldo is the worst guest commentator I've ever heard. He once described the greens at Augusta as, " crusty biscuits"

Remember Trotters very well, hardly missed one...remember Pete Lawson getting barred by the bar staff at one of the days ph34r.gif Was turned into a rave club.

1987 the Winding Wheel all-nighters in Chesterfield were in full swing run by Danny Everard and Dave Thorley. Blackburn and Mexboro' (both Tony's Empress Ballrooms) run by Guy Hennigan. 100 Club doing the business plus loads of one off all-nighters/soul nights. Got some flyers somewhere for fair few venues from '87.
