Got into Northern in the early 80s after The Jam split via the Inferno and Kent compilations. Went to a few dos around Southampton in 83/84. Started collecting originals 85/86 mainly at Hanway Street, Ady and Clarkey. Started attending venues 1999/ 2000 Brighton Alldayers, Capitol Soul Club, Scenesville and These Old Shoes. Loved every minute of these days and have DJ'd at a few of them. Still collecting a bit, but not getting out so much.
