Is A Love For One Form Of Sound

Could you, hand on heart, state that Northern is all?

Does admitting that you would rather hear Frank Wilson for the 7000th time, when something other could be played (I know the argument, yes, 'It should be something other that fits my bill and not something from another sphere') - but in variably, couldn't it be some other quality production that takes that 3/4 minute slot?

Or would this bring about the downfall of the scene?

Thinking about it, the scenes politics are almost racist.

Discuss.

JEEZ, Barry. Why don't you give your, highly Intelectual, brain a rest. Considering that you haven't been near "the scene" for at least, hmmmmm, 20 years and aren't even qualified to speak on such subjects, why don't you take the forum in your head to bed and type away there. Where, i'm sure, you'll recieve plenty of answers to the ever flowing quandrie of scandalous threads, exactly as you'd like them to be answered.

That`s a very thought-provoking idea!! No, it wouldn`t bring the scene to its knees, in my opinion it has been there for years. The constant replication of the same set of oldies played each week at most venues has made the scene stale and boring. There is no longer a vibrant, forward-looking scene that we lived for back at the Casino and through much of the eighties at venues like Stafford and the 100 Club, a scene that broke new material every week. Todays` scene is little more than a social gathering for 40-plus people who have grown up with Northern Soul and could no more give it up than fly through the air. The few exceptions (Burnley, Holmes Chappell etc.) form only a fraction of the venues still running in 2008, that try to break new material. But consider this: how many `oldies` that have not been played on the scene for 25-30 years would not grace any dance floor today? There is a whole new undiscovered scene waiting to be activated by the right promoter with the right attitude that if you play an oldie to someone who has never heard it before it becomes a newie. 90% of the records that I fell in love with at Wigan Casino were at least ten years old in 1975 when I started going. To ignore sounds like The Lovables `You Can`t Dress Up A Broken Heart` or Bobby Lester `Hang Up Your Hang-ups` in favour of another repetition of `If That`s What You Wanted`or `Get It Baby` is worse than stupid, it`s criminal (though not racist, mate!) As to your general point of staying fiercely loyal to one genre of music, I guess that is up to the individual, but given the massive part of our lives that we have all spent on Northern Soul, is staying with the music any different to staying with the same woman? Thanks for your original idea man, you have certainly started something here, but I have to say no to the racist connection. I hate racists more than I hate West Bromich Albion fans, and being a loyal Gold & Black that is saying something. Shit, I can feel the rumble of keyboards of Albion fans from here!!!

Ha ha!!

I'm not highly intellectual, you have simply just given me your view on how you regard me - thanks anyhow.

Have a little respect mate, you should know me better - all I do here is pose questions, all answers are to be read and taken for what they are.

Love you - love to Mum and Big Dave anyhow. x

No frank Wilson ever again ... melt it down and use it for an ashtray.

You sound like jazzy B on the soul brittania thread mentioning the word racist.

Im not really sure what the question you ask really is, but someone fiddled whilst Rome burned. :)

tis alright luv :yes: I have found my glasses now (they were on top of my head) I thought it read flegling (the title) I say be eclectic in your music, if it fits your mood then fine, I would recommend classic euphoria for getting the housework done in half the time, sweet soul for the good times, deep soul for the bad times, definately NO ABBA at any time, Candi Staton young hearts run free for mum and daughter times, terry jacks seasons in the sun for the reflective being young times in the long hot summer of 76, and a touch of the barry whites for the personal :shhh: times :)laugh.gif:yes::boxing:
