  1. I have quite a few discs for sale on Discogs, today two of them were removed, and that "Blocked" message added to their pages - both were of the "two expensive tracks on one cheap 7"- style reissues. I guess Discogs are weeding out anything that might be considered a bootleg - wonder if this is across the board, or just where the copyright owners enter a complaint? PS my Discogs store is at https://www.discogs.com/seller/Rockerq/profile
  2. A number of 7"s on my Discogs page, a mix of originals and reissues all as marked... https://www.discogs.com/seller/Rockerq/profile

February sees the Easton Soul debut of Getting Together DJs Ian and Rocker.

They play classic upbeat 60s Northern Soul, with a smattering of 70s, Motown, R'n'B and crossover, all on original vinyl - give thanks for god's great surface noise and bring your dancing shoes!

  11. Getting Together Tenth Birthday Party - Northern Soul @ Halo, 141 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol, BS7 8BA Saturday May 18th 2013 8pm 'til late Admission £3 Amazingly it is now ten years since Getting Together's first soul event in Bristol. If you've been to one of our nights over the last decade, you'll know to expect a night of upbeat 60s Northern Soul - with a smattering of 70s, Motown, R'n'B and crossover - provided by our residents Ian Williams, Steve Harry and Rocker. For our birthday party we are bringing back to Bristol one of our earliest guests, a man whose record collection and knowledge of soul music we can only envy - Matty. If you've not come across Matty at one of our gigs, you may know him from his own soul nights in Trowbridge, or from one of his residencies in Bournemouth or Weston-Super-Mare. He will be playing a range of sounds, from classic Northern, to Latin and modern spins. The dancefloor will be packed for this one! Halo is a bar / restaurant, situated on the Gloucester Road, less than half a mile north of the arches. We can recommend the food. Our night is held in a separate function room with a bar, an outdoor smoking area, and of course a dancefloor. Parking is readily available outside the venue, and there's a regular bus service to / from the city centre 'til 11.45pm. It's a ten-minute walk from Montpelier railway station. Entry is still a recession-busting £3, we'll be playing from 8pm 'til past midnight. Since space is limited we recommend you get there early to guarantee admission! We'll be spinning original soul vinyl. You'll be expected to dance! Sales boxes welcome! (Just ask Ian, Steve or Rocker)

  16. Getting Together Presents Northern Soul @ Halo, 141 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol, BS7 8BA Friday March 15th 2013 8pm 'til late Admission £3 After a couple of quiet years, Getting Together is back! If you've been to one of our nights before, you'll know to expect a night of upbeat 60s Northern Soul - with a smattering of 70s, Motown, R'n'B and crossover - provided by our residents Ian Williams, Steve Harry and Rocker. For the launch party at our new venue, we decided to book someone who has guested for us many times before, and is guaranteed to pack the dancefloor - DJ Dean, co-promoter of one of Bristol's best nights out Go Go Children, will be playing a dancefloor friendly set grounded in classic Northern and R'n'B. Halo is a bar / restaurant, situated on the Gloucester Road, less than half a mile north of the arches. We can recommend the food. Our night is held in a separate function room with a bar, an outdoor smoking area, and of course a dancefloor. Parking is readily available outside the venue, and there's a regular bus service to / from the city centre 'til 11.45pm. It's a ten-minute walk from Montpelier railway station.
