First Ever Known Northern Soul All Nighter

Recommended Posts

Guest northern beats

Hi - I am just curious if anybody knows ?

Where & when was the first ever Northern Soul All Nighter held ?

Bearing in mind that the Twisted Wheel Club preceded Northern Soul Music.

I went to Bletsoe All Nighters in the early seventies also the Cats, Leeds Central, Torch, VaVas etc

But what came before these ?

Can anybody point me to a chronological list of all nighters ?

Thanks - Scobie

Bletsoe just up the road from me. Northants has a rich vein of soul often overlooked. What about earls Barton Dog Track niter, The red house, Frollocking kneecap. Get in touch with Kevinkent or Malc Gibson aka Gibby (an original in all aspects of soul a very intresting guy and an ace face in his time), See his thread elswhere on here. also the gaff at Banbury all early niters before the term northern.

could it have been the heaven an hell club on brazenose street manchester in the very early 60's then changed name to twisted wheel fore it moved to whitworth street

but like a post already mentioned it more likely alnighters started life as a jazz club like speakeasy's

so i think it would be safe to say going back before the fifties it all happened one of my uncles was playin in a band during the war years and they were takin bluey's then lol ...

but "The Wheel" cannot be touched for atmosphere and sounds the week end could nt come fast enough .....memories aaaahhhh little pat

1)The original Twisted Wheel at26,bRAZENOSE Street was originally a daytime cafe called the Left Wing frequented by Beatnick/ban the bomb type people(see the early flyers).

2)The Heaven and Hell was on the other side of central Manchester--a different type of club/music all together.

3) PLEASE CHECK YOUR FACTS!!!!!!

Hi Tony

L'Ambassador was on Melbourne Terrace ( I think) near the University - Kegsy will probably be able to confirm the exact address as we were both there when it got 'raided' and we ended up in the cells all night!! Think this was the night that Swish played the record deck without putting a 45 on first! I wonder why?

String of Beads was on Manor Row

The original topic of this thread was the first "Northern soul" all nighter.The Scene in Ham yard (off Oxford St) opened in Late 1963 about the same time as La Discotheque(17,Wardour St) and altho both very cool mod clubs--the music could no way be termed "northern --due mainly to the fact most of "all nighter music wasn,t recorded by then(if you get my drift)--likewise as i said earlier the Brazennose St. Wheel.I think you,d have to look at something like The Night Owl in Leicester--as most clubs gradually evolved to playing what we now term "Northern" between 1965--70.

Just my opinion as this history of old clubs has always intrested me

(wish i,d been born 10 yrs. earlier!!)

:D Yes you are right in saying these early clubs were MOD clubs, however there was a high amount of R%B soul and Motown plated at the also SKA and certain pop R&B and even groups like the Beach Boys got played, if my memory serves me well my visits to the Wheel in 69 the music policy was not dissimilar to the Flamingo with the exception that in London clearly thing become funky-er and at the wheel artist like the Drifters were more popular I would say the rare soul element was around this time 67/8 and that by 68/69 in London the new Jamaican rhythm of reggae was the in thing and Taylor made for the bovver boy style of youth culture that although short lived got a lot of people more interested in obscure aspects of black music and in the same way I speak for myself here that by 71/72 lead me back to the allnighter scene in the North which had blossomed into a rare soul scene and what become known as Northern soul. A statement that could only been made by someone from the south as the north in those days meant as the saying goes any were north of Watford, I personally only know very few people from the south who were at the start of what is know as the rare soul scene in those days in particular MICK SMITH who lived less than a mile from me and by the time we were first DJing together in 71/2 his records were just amazing to here and his knowledge of soul could not be challenged, I believe this is because he never got into the reggae scene that was really big in our area and his focus was firmly into the rare underground soul scene :unsure: DAVE KIL

Rumour has it that one of the first semi all nighters was at the Jazz Club (Formerly known as Plebs) in Halifax, they certainly had some early soul and British white soul artists appearing there, perhaps some of the older members could expand on this?

I thought he coined the term in 1970 for the "clubs" in the North. Was the Wheel open then? I thought the Torch was the leading all-nighter in '70? The music and the scene was actually there before the term was coined.

Yep with you on the last bit. I'm trying to think where that came from now - but I'm certain it was the Wheel that DG had visited and was the inspiration behind the term.

I heard a a slightly different theory to how Dave coined the phrase Northern Soul. In the late 60s groups of lads used to travel down to London from Manchester for the football and made a detour to his shop. They were always after the Wheel-esque records hence he set up a new section and called it "Northern Soul"

You are correct Tony : organised by its' enterprising owners , The Metro held three all - nighters shortly after the closure of The Wheel - technically two and a half , as the last / third one was cut short mid way through the night ( morning ? ) by the blitzkrieg police drugs raid , which resulted in the arrest of the assembled revellers ( reported to be around 150 , one of them being a young gentleman , who became - and still is - a notable name on the scene ) .

The photograph was sent to me a while ago by an aquintance , and is part of an archive collection of Wakefield buildings and businesses . The Metro Bistro ( to give it its' correct name ) was situated in the Bullring area of Wakefield city centre : if you came up Westgate from the Unity Hall , it was on right of the Bullring , opposite The Intercon ( later Raquel's ) which was on the right .

As far as I know , the building ( as shown in the photograph ) is still there , though there are no / will be any indications it was The Metro .

If The Wheel is being disqualified as a "northern Soul" venue then

the first northern allnighter has to be The L'Ambassador club in Bradford which opened

very shortly after The Wheel closed.

Regular DJ's were Steve Grimshaw and Swish.

Guests included Ian Levine and probably Julian Bentley.

I cant be sure as the memories from that time are

a bit blurred due to things zipping by at a pace.

It lasted about a year and closed down when the Old Bill

arrived, arrested and locked everybody up including the owner !!!!.

We held an impromptu allnighter in the large day cell under the Town Hall

as Swish had not been relieved of his records or discotron !!!!!!!!!!!.

I would say that The Wheel by a million miles has to be the first rare soul nighter followed by The Torch and then Up The Junction, Crewe. All three were running from the mid 60ts to early 70ts

mmmm thats interesting did it get busted a few times then. Me and some other reprobates went once and the DS raided it (with dogs I think) and it carried on whilst they were inside and eventually they went.

But......memories are a blur as you say :boxing:

Mossy--as weboth said earlier on in this thread-----some guy didn,t put a poster uo on 22 May 1966 or whatever it evolved between 1085--70 across the country diu to the IN CROWD(tHE MODS/then Skins /Suedes wanting to hear something different--all clubs evolvedi.e The first Wheel from pop in 1963 to Rnb with Roger Eagle then to Motown and beyond with Brian Philips etc----Plebs in Halifax(similar club but on a lot smaller scale)was a jazz club but began all niters in 1966 a nd by it,s close in 1968 was playing full onmotown/stax/northern.

Kegsy----i believe having spoke with Swish that L,ambassador was after the Wheel closed i.e. early 1971(earlier Bradford clubs---San Remo,String of Beads.) Just like crossover soul didn,t start in one club with one D.J. 0N ONE NIGHT--word of mouth and people travelling club goers (not least holiday makers from all over the country meeting up in Scarboro.Torquay.Newquay, etc---and away football fans(when they weren,t scrapping) swapping tunes(no soul source then!!_

It was the night the Metro got closed down that many of the soulies arrived at Lord Jim's in Huddersfield ( the queue stretched around the corner of the building) that the management decided to 'sack' me as the DJ as the music I and others like Les Cokell, who helped me out, were championing, was attracting the 'wrong sort' of clientele - ah well, all good things come to an end - it freed me up to be able to do the Hernies allnighters in Leeds ( before that got raided and closed as well).

Hi there T.C.

Yes, it was one the corner of Roundhay Road and Harehills Lane - run by Dennis Billingham - I have/had a handwritten poster for this venue ( but can't bloody find it) think it was dated sometime in 1972 - there was alot of press coverage in the Yorkshire Post at the time following the 'raids' - Kim Dent ( I think that was his name) from Blackpool was always being quoted about the 'drugs'and soul scene and how they travelled the country attending different venues. I believe Kim died of an overdose not long after, but I may be wrong on this one.

Hernie's address was 2 Harehills Road - telephone number 621208 .......

As far as I know , Hernie's was still operating late 1971 , but cannot be sure it was still going in 1972 .

You are right - it was Kim Dent , and he did die of an overdose .

Pretty sure it was an Irish bar then ( although the soul 'do' was upstairs) remember when it got 'busted' - I was DJing at the time and the DJ area was behind wooden poles ( you had to lift up the left hand poles to remove them to gain entry) the cops couldn't figure this out, so whilst the 'raid' was going on, I kept playing tunes - they were seriously pissed off at the time. Seem to remember I finished with Bob Brady's Goodbye Baby on Chariot ( green label) before they finally decided how to get at me!!biggrin.gif

there where loads of littleclubs around that didant have all night licences in fact most didant .but lots of them just carried on well in to the morning playing soul music so there is no proper answer to this question but i would also like to point out that long before the casino emerged as an alnighter in wigan there was a little club in wigan called the room at the top near what used to be the old market . and i know a lot of well known soul fans from preston used to go there long before the casino including my brother who is ten years older than me so that may give you some idear on how far back these clubs date back and i would imagine they where in lots of towns all over the uk .
