Edinburgh Soul Scene What A Joke,

Recommended Posts

Guest

WENT TO THE SPIDERS WEB A FEW WEEKS BACK AND, WELL FOR STARTERS ITS A DUMP, THEN THERE IS THE DJS, IS THIS A NORTHERN SOUL VENUE OR DJs WHO WOULD LIKE TO BE PLAYING IN SOME CLUB SOMEWHERE, BUT CANT MIX RECORDS, ONE MINUTE ITS A NORTHERN SOUL STOMPER THEN ITS A GARAGE TUNE, whistling.gif ,

THEN I LOOKED TO SEE WHAT ELSE WAS ON IN THERE WEB SITE AND LOOKED AT THE DJ PLAYLIST AND THERE IT IS SIDNEY JOE QUALLS ON EXPANSION ON A DJ PLAY LIST, ITS NOT THAT THE LP IS SO RARE YOU COULD FIND A COPY IF YOU TRYED,

THERE IS SO MANY GOOD COLLECTORS IN SCOTLAND,

BUT IT IS THE SAME DJs THAT PLAY ALL THE TIME,

[removed]

I QUITE BELEIVE THIS IT WAS NOT SO LONG A GO THAT THERE DJs WHERE NOT ALLOWED TO DJ FOR ANYONE ELSE, THEN A VENUE THAT FINISHED AT 3AM THEN CHANGED TO 1AM BUT THE PRICE STAYED THE SAME,

If you hare unhappy with Sid being played on 7" rather than on album, then you have a problem. Lets face it, you are destined to lead an unhappy life.

Bit of a cliche I know, but - its what in the groove that counts.

Can only talk for the night (Souler Power) I ran with Ali Duff for a couple of years at the taxi club - guests included Alan Pollard, Des Parker, Martyn Bradley, Guy Hennigan, Kitch, Dean Anderson, Eddie Engel, Colini Wood, Robbo, Karl Rhodes, Liz Foster, Carl Willingham, Keith Money, Kenny Burrell, Andy Dyson, Mick H etc etc. We've now switched to doing 2/3 alldayers a years with another later in the year (early summer date to be confirmed)

Go to http://www.soulscotland.co.uk for details on other nights. Gennas, Calidonia Soul, Spiders Web etc - all great soul events IMHO.

To "Old Scottish Soulie".

It's good to see that the "Scottish Scene" is still making people think, though how you managed it I'm not to sure !, I take it the night in question was the "Modern Night", and you heard garage music played !, you mention a record on a list and as I run the club and the web site the lists that are on at the moment are for the dates since February with no sign of a Sidney Joe Qualls, so then it must have been our "Modern Night" which we had in January.

As for good collectors in Scotland, yes no problems with that, most of them have been asked to Dj, some of them won't Dj, others cannot make it or say no when asked and believe me I ask a lot of people.

As for the "it's a dump" part, well yes ok in this day and age of trendy bars it has maybe been left behind by a long way but then we are in our 10th year and still going so if it was that bad why do people carry on coming back, have a look at the Guestbook on the web site.

The Web has never stopped Dj's working at other clubs, get your facts right !

3am finish we have never had, get your facts right !

1am finish, yes because of a Soul Fan who got out of order and has spoiled things for the rest of us and admission has been £3 since 1996, get your facts right !

If you have any further problems then please E-Mail me from the web site,

George Wallace

The Spiders Web soul events have been going strong since 1996 and continue to do so, the venue itself is a cellar bar with low ceilings, caverns and cheap ale, a crowd of around 50 generates a brilliant atmosphere and there have been nights when the place has had 100+ jammed in, the promoters, past & present have all ran the club not for financial gain but purely as soul fans, which is why the club is still going strong, George Wallace has to be one of the most stand-up guys on the Scottish Soul Scene and full praise to him for taking the reigns and keeping it going and now has provided an excellent website, soul fans from all over the world have attended and had nothing but praise for the nights. The music policy is open-minded and to suit all tastes and if you (like myself) don't care too much for modern you can leave the dj/dance area and have a chat with the soul gang dotted around the record bar area. Friendly, atmospheric and still going strong.

Have been reading your thread on & off for a couple of days.

There's a faiir bit of animosity.

Is this a general thing north of the border?....or is this thread totally unrepresentative?

Now I know you guys are gonna assume i'm some smart ass southerner on a wind up.

BUT, the scene in my neck of the woods is really quite small. Generally every body makes an effort to get on.

I'm Surrey/Hampshire way.

I am sorry about this one but you got the wrong person, first it was myself that started the spiders web along with kenny burrell, and secondly i enjoyed djn there and was always at George for a djN spot, I have not been to any venue for at least 3 months,

As for records original, pressings or labels i could not care if they are played from personel stereo,

And as for mr old soulie,

I am not running anything again because its small minded people like you who moan and never run anything, but are always first to complain or bitch,

And i am presently renovating 3 flats that i bought last year, hence the reason for selling my records,

SO YOU CAN LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR THE TOPIC STARTER,

AND AS FOR YOU PETE S YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ME SO WIND YOUR NECK IN, YOU`VE JUST GOT THE HUMP COS I WOULDNT SELL MY RECORDS TO YOU AND MICK SMITH, AT A 3RD OF THERE VALUE
