    northern soul - the current state...?

    Derby and Joan soul nights with sandwiches and birthday balloons. Same old same old, worst period ive known since 1976. Only thing to get excited about is that Empty Bottles has started up again, this is one of the few places worth travelling to.

    Poll: Version Battle - I Have Faith in You

    I know I shouldn't like it, and Edwins vocals are a mile better, but for production, arrangement and the total package Burdicks version comes out on top

    So sad news-Mark Ellis-Rotherham

    Mark would be amazed by the comments left on here. I really don't think he had any idea how popular and loved he was. I will let you know when any date for the funeral have been made.
  5. Sad news regarding the sudden passing of Mark Ellis from Rotherham. Knew Mark for over 40 years from Samanthas and then introduced to him properly at the Windmill on a sunday night. From then on we went everywhere together- the casino, following the Wednesday home and away and holidays. He was my best man and we always kept in touch. Later on I used to see him at the 100 club , the Wilton and Lifeline. He had a photographic memory regards labels and artists and corrected me on many occasion. He was also well travelled going to parts of the world which were really unknown for vacations back in the day. He really was a gentle soul and I will miss him greatly. The last 5 years had not been a good time for Mark, and finally I hope he can find the peace he deserved. Sleep well mate

    The venue is perfect. Give me a good old shithole any day. Just look at the Casino, Pier, Central etc.The atmosphere is spot on, with a great knowledgeable crowd. Plenty of women there and they return time and again. We are so lucky to have this venue on our doorstep, with a chance to listen to underplayed 60,s and 70,s. Long may it continue. Shitholes rule OK

    The Mighty Bub - Would Have Been 60 This Year

    Total one off. " I,am here to educate not F*****g entertain" one of my favourites when asked for a record. Saw a few DJ,S in later years trying to F & Blind whilst jocking ( James Trouble comes to mind) but nobody could hold a light to him. Really nice lad and a true character. The scene is a lot poorer without him
  8. Does nobody have the benefit of doubt anymore. Hes apologised what more do you want the bloke to do.

    Which dj ?

    Butch. Still head and shoulders above the rest. I went to Thorne last Saturday and he did 2 spots totalling two and a half hours of pure class. Nobody has come close to him over the last 20 years.

    BOOMERANG with Butch

    This was quite simply a pilgrimage to hear the greatest soul DJ ever - Butch. Hes done it in the past and he can still blow everyone else out of the water now. He did 2 spots which were so varied and would have kept everyone happy, no matter what their musical tastes were. Through the night we would all turn to each other and mutter-OMG what the hell is this. This was exciting and fresh again just like the early days. To top it off hes a really nice unassuming bloke. Well done to Boomerang for getting him to come to Yorkshire. Brilliant brilliant night.

    Video of Sheridans from 2004

    Absolutely loved this place. Reaffirmed my love affair with rare soul. It had everything, a dingy intimate venue, like minded punters, the cream of DJs and underplayed 60s soul. Perfect perfect perfect. Sadly missed

    Chris Pele's 60th birthday bash at the Wilton

    One not to miss. Lets make it a great night for Pelle. He often gets overlooked when people talk about the great days at the Wilton, but he was there from the very start at the Carlton club and then was involved when it moved to the Wilton. Top lad who is still supporting small venues and has been around as long as I can remember, this time lets support him at this iconic venue. PS. How the hell did we make 60.

    Rarest of the rare allnighter 1994

    Fantastic nights with like minded people, who had been on the journey over the years and were always looking to hear something new. This was something we all thought would keep going and never did we imagine it would descend into the fancy dress pantomime we have today.

    the man that lived in wigan toilets

    Had a good chat with him one Friday night (Wheel & Torch night) if I remember. He used to be in the merchant navy and spent most of his life sailing the oceans of the world. He spoke of the places he had visited and it was good to know a bit about the man behind the face. Fantastic memories of a special time.
