    Tall Paul (Spinner)

    Mandy and I heard of Tall Paul's passing last night. We used to catch up with Paul and Carol at all the usual haunts Lowton, Bury, Prestwich, NCS and loads of places, always a smile and always dancing hard. Paul was a really, really nice bloke and personified all that is the best of the NS scene. Having moved away from the NW a decade ago we only got to occasional doo's. The last time we saw Paul was at the Prestwich reunion last year. It was like we had just seen him the week before, a hug and a chat and watch him spin!! Our hearts go out to Carole. RIP Paul. Ben and Mandy

    Dave is round and having a brew verballing around long trips in an escort (the car not a bird), he's wondering how you are doing?
  6. Soul in the Highlands?....there are a few of us There is a fella called Dave originally from Birstall , Leicester who lives 2 miles down the road from me in Forres (which is bizare as i'm a mountsorrel boy) and another Dave this time from Manchester who used to DJ, but is now a preacher in Dingwall! There must be more hiding away, but perhaps not enough for a regular night and perhaps not on a Saturday if Dingwall Dave needs to work on Sundays . Fort William, nah i'll still be recovering from Aberdeen Nighter on the 4th October to consider attending, if someone fancies organising a Highland weekender though ...
  7. Is there proof of an authentic link to all things NS (praise be to god) and this rather under performing Scottish league 1 club or this just another sickening case of Youtube youth messing about with something that thEY CLEARLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND AND CHERISH AS THEY SHOULD? Soul Starsi, your judgement please...

    Whats All This About Then?

    "Infamous" in a purely lovin way - he's a mate for life (though he does owe me a tenner and a pint of full fat milk ) - he took me to my and a few young pretenders to our first soul doo and many thereafter. You might bump into him in Canada as he's skiing for two weeks somewhere near Banff - top moves on the piste as well as on the floor
