    Were There Any Older Guys At Wigan?

    hi i started going to all nighters at 14 an half in 1965 when speed was not illegal, at the mojo in sheffieldmy first wheel card (blue)ran out january 1st 1966 .i spent 2 years going between the mojo until it stopped niters and kept going to the wheel on and off till it closed .in 68 i started going to various nighters , tinned chicken an bin lid castle ford etc. on top of these the nottingham nighters at the beachcomber also the damp dungeon nighters . the night owl in leicester was another nighter until it burnt down dump like the birmingham cellar nighters, i even went to a nighter at earls barton in northhampton it was at a dog racing track but good some sounds i had and never heard again, the worlds best all nighter was another chris burton club at a fabulous country club at draycott near derby a truly wonderful night of underfloor glass lit dance floor and the rarest of all allnighters really clean toilets!!!!!! till it got closed by derby squad! chris burton also ran the attic all nighter till again the d.s closed it 1969 in doncaster,i went to so many other nighters from cambridge st ives rugby up the junction chester samanthas kgb both sheffield and wigan after the golden torch got destroyed the rest is lost by amphetamine derivatives , i started with purple hearts and blues green an clears to sulphate late 70 s ritalyn in the 2014 last nighter at Samantha's now I am 67 and wasted the last 4 years!!!!!!!! just wish I had had a camera crew to capture all the crap i came out with in my verbalising ! i want to go back there again!!!!!!!!

    King Mojo Club 1967

    hot limes were the cheapest drinks served! the little indians that ran it would bring the drinks to you . a freckled girl named angie would come in and take orders for clothing she would then go around shoplifting to order on saturday afternoons. the derby and notts lads would go to the cafe in atkinsons on the high street . big sean from peterbro always had a girl friend that worked for s.k.f laboratories very useful in those days!!!!! i am loving the memories your posts are bringing back ,the characters and long forgotten names .

    King Mojo Club 1967

    regarding stringys records and where they came from ,kath who worked in the mojo also worked as a buyer for wilson peck during the week and there was an america connection - a youth from chicago sent all the latest releases from the states! one night the aforesaid chicago lad turned up in a cape and top hat -the yank version of what mods wore, he had given the mojo a start on other clubs boogaloo baby by tommy and neve and an acetate of ike and turner stomper beauty is just skin deep !!

    King Mojo Club 1967

    I started mid 1965 at the mojo , I remember the first big drugs bust when 2coaches turned up with them were Sheffield D.S. On the TV the following week "prescription drugs worth around £12 had been seized !"so the BBC reporter said. You re from donny do you remember Phil stables ,Johno and marsh ,big and little cogsey,Alan Taylor ,did you go to the attic in Doncaster ? The nite owl in Leicester - robin the Dj. Playing boogaloo party must have played it ten times a night!some the names you mentioned I knew well also radio ,little Eric ,algy from Notts . Apart from the wheel I went to the Nottingham dungeon and beachcomber nighters, the tinned chicken and bin lid .i even went to the Northampton --earls Barton dog track nighters. The best nighter however was near Derby -The blue orchid a marvellous country club venue with even clean toilets ! A dance floor of glass that had a swimming pool underneath! Speaking of Derby Jimmy, fahey, ,feyak, big Chris -who got killed on the way to Sheffield after a blue orchid nighter. Did you know the Peterborough lads Sean caddy , Grantham - Phil Eddie dodger Dave Owen all went to the mojo and the top man heavy blocker TOOTs , my mate at mojo nighters was Chris Farrell he's on Facebook and on soul source! Thanks for reminding me of the names I hadn't heard of for so many decades I eventually stopped going to niters the last one was a Samantha's reunion 4 years ago ,there were so many others but typing is getting to me ,regards Roggert.
  10. just realised that i started going to northern soul allniters about 7 yearsbefore they got called northern soul, april 24th 1965 was my first allniter 49 years ago and the purple heart amphet tablets didnt half help to make the night go well ,solomon burke was on ,i just wish i could go back and do it all again.and again..........
  11. hi everyone this is the first time i replied to this in 2 years but after almost 40 years i now have a very old mate back in touch hi ya chris farrell of verballing fame in allniter car parks If only we had seen the famous acts we paid to see instead of gabbling from 1966 onwards if only the wigan warriors had been to all the really great niters !!!!!!! roggert 1

    hi the first alldayer i remember going to was after the mojo shut down in sheffield -an enormous tram shed -queens hall ? leeds abot 1968 dreadful acoustics half mile walk to get to the toilets, concrete floor 2000 turned up but only filled a space round the stageleaving several acres of space! alton towers would have filled what was left!!!!!!
  13. just remembered -gettin pissed again! second allniter i went to was wardour street in london at the marquee -very posh an expensive for a 14 year old in 1965 but i was 6 feet tall -trouble was doobie prices were twice as much as in sheffield six pennies (old money) for dexedrine tabs 2an half new pence, 40 for a quid ----- ihad 25pence pocket money left after getting there !! still got school dinner money left for monday! --5 pence/shilling
