Have to agree with this one and the Larry Trider,never liked either and would both have me rushing for my chair.Not that I dance to much anyway.

Terry Callier - Ordinary Joe

Heaven in the afternoon (so unmemorable i've forgotten the artist)

Drizabone - Pressure

Any djs that play mainly modern & crossover

Any djs that play mainly R & B

Any djs that play unimaginative classics

Infact most records played by most current djs on the NS scene

I sit down a lot nowadays!

Simon :D

I thought your list would of been huge Simon but i like the way you shortened it,

Simon when you ask about a venue you should state that a very comfy chair is needed :lol:

i like to hear a few of the lesser favourable ones then that means you can take a rest from dancing and maybe get a drink in or a chat or even a wee wee,

tunes that instantly makes me want to sit down now is, anything Simon M plays :D

It was like musical chairs when you played that Ernie and Ed mate :D:lol::thumbsup: what did pete-s say ?

cant wait for you to play the Jordan Brothers :ohmy::lol::lol:

at least i didnt have people rowing their boats like oops upside your head :(

seriously though, their aint much that i that bothered by when its played so its all about timing for me, if i want to or got to sit down i will unless its something very special.

its suprising sometimes what the majority do or dont want, at KSC a fair amount of 70/80s modern stuff got played and it went down really well then at the next one 2 months later Simon M came to play and did actually play some great modern tunes and not the real disco stuff he owns and the place was like a morge, i felt so sorry for him :D up the on that big stage trying his hardest to get the floor back but it just didnt happen so he even tried Alfie Davison but by that time it was too late and they was leaving in their droves (only to the toilet :lol: ) but luckily enough the next dj was in touch with the venue and saved the evening, it just goes to show how indifferent the same punters can be on a different night ,

lucky enough there is plenty of seating in that venue and the bar staff was plaesed as they was kept busy for an hour and it helped the night go faster for them :thumbsup:

It was at the carlton Club Deeside N Wales, it was our second do, and there was 100 plus people in, but there were alot of new faces in the club and they were dancing to r&b popcorn style of sounds.

And the one we did before that, they were dancing to the whole lot, soul, r&b, jamaican ska ect, and there was less people there. But there was a great buzz going on, friendly atmosphere ect.

Still a great night, and for free.

Pete

Usually Soul Sam.......in the 70`s he was one of the finest Northern DJ`s on the planet (that was way before the drudgery of this "Nuvo Modern"crap) the man was just pierless and I still love him to bits, but call me a traditionalist....I just do not like his style of music nowadays.

Anything that sounds like it was probably first played in New York in the 70's and early 80's when people wore leg warmers and illuminus clothing to go dancing,and the girls, and probably some blokes were covered in glitter.

Oh yeah and tunes that sound like the artist went and shot him/herself once they had done the session, no matter how much the vinyl cost.

Regards

Kev(dont do modern) Such.

:( my mate phoned me up the other week and said "you got to get a tune by soul brothers inc called Pyramid" i still aint stopped laughing about it now, fooking s.. :yes:

Soul Brother Inc.-Pyramid...Not a bad track, IMHO;been played at a 6Ts 'Do' :unsure:

....But, records to 'make me sit down':

any 'clanky' R&B track :g:

Billy Ocean-'Love really hurts without you'-YES!!!!, (aaaagh) :D

...and any track that does not appeal to me; and that is the important thing, 'cos 'SOUL' covers a lot of different tastes, and resulting sounds, and that's why the scene is so long-lived. :P

How on earth does Eddie Bishop 'Call me' qualify as soul? Awful supermarket aisle fodder. Shame on any and all that spin it.

Chris montez version, far better :P imo

Youngblood Smith is one of the greatest Northern dancers ever and Pyramid is one of the few 70's records that can be classed as brilliant...
