    White Wigan patch with green trim.

    Out of interest, does number 22 have your name in it? Back in the olden days, I borrowed what I'm sure was number 22 off one of the Ormskirk guys(I even remember who). It was either taken off me or I lost it, he wasn't best pleased. Paul
  5. Number 398. Just flicked through it and on page 103 found a picture of my sister with "George from Hull with friend". I've still never found a photo of me. I must have avoided the cameras!

    March 73. Unless the badge is referring to Chris Burtons ill fated Torch revival allnighter at the Village Disco in Stetford. This turned into a crap alldayer in an ultra modern(at the time) chrome and glass disco. Paul

    Forgotten Monsters From Wigan Etc Days

    The other thing is, the Casino gets the blame for stuff like this which, as Joey said was absolutely massive in the first few months there. But it should be remembered that it was originally a Mecca spin along with a lot of other "blue eyed" sounds.

    Forgotten Monsters From Wigan Etc Days

    Just Checked through all 18 pages, and although not monsters but possibly nearly forgotten from the early days(nights), I'll add: Willows, My Kinda Guy Diane Brookes, In My Heart Betti Webb, I Know 100% Aged In Soul, One Mans Leftovers Tower Of Power, This Time It's Real Jackie Follett, There's A Moment Some of these were played pre Wigan in the wilderness months between the Torch and Casino.

    Youth Club Soul

    1971 at the age of 13 I was taken to St Maries youth club in Southport. Many memories of little piece of leather, Back street, cool jerk, Breakout, etc. But my two favourites at the time were Scratchy, and The Snake! They still being back happy memories no matter how many times I hear them, or how fashionable people think they are.
  12. Tony Petherbridge founded the Northern Soul Club. The International Soul Club was Chris Burton the former Torch owner. My first proper northern venue was Whitchurch Civic Alldayer August 1973 age 15!
