  2. "Something Different"Sunday Soul

    Top all-dayer the last time with a more than decent crowd - and more importantly raising nearly 200 quid for the British Legion, whilst drawing comments like this on the interweb..... ' It is those essential “Sunday-Soul-Parties” like “Horse & Groom - Doncaster” “Feed Your Soul - Newark” “Carib Soul - London” and the up & coming Beat-Ballad Haven of “Something Different in Shirebrook” where “My Garden Of Eden” is causing a ripple or two… Whilst the erstwhile Raresoulman had these interesting things to say..... "So here I was again at Shirebrook Football Club on a Saturday afternoon not for Footy this time but this for a Northern Soul All dayer.. got there @ 2pm my set was at 6pm I’d already figured out, I was gonna be captive in my place of fear for at least another 7 hours...... I settled in and listened… within 30 minutes I was in awe of the tunes that seeped from the speakers, imaginative, classy, unusual, unknown, Memories of 15 Jellyfish shivering on their shorts, were replaced by me searching my mind for, when was the last time I heard Len Jewels masterpiece by The Soul Shakers - You’re Turnin’..? The 4 hours flew by, with stylus-drop after drop causing euphoric recall I’d not enjoyed since who knows when. A mix of 60s & & 70s Northern Soul, Belgium Popcorn, some awesome crossover and precious carefully selected treasures from the Beat-Ballad-Heaven genre.. my initial doubts where swept away by an avalanche of Soulful-Goodies… Which brings me to Joe Arnold’s - No Clouds In The sky - even though I owned a copy, through those big speakers it had me unashamedly sending someone else to the decks to find out what fantastic choon was… SHIREBROOK FOOTBALL Club is just a truly fabulous experience, a “Shawshank Redemption” cocktail of surprise & pleasure…. as long as you ain’t gone there to play football…" And as the kind Dean Penford says, ' Place is run by very knowledgable, sincere, friendly people.' There ain't many better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon

  5. 100 Club Nighter

    Anybody know if there is a warm-up on anywhere before?? Or do I and Mr D simply head to the Blue Post and join the throng as usual
  6. 6T'S 100 Club ALLNIGHTER

    Haven't been for a bit. Work and wars and all that. But finally got some leave. Boro away and the 100 Club in the same day. As the song goes, 'what more could a boy ask for'. See you at the disco
  7. First soul record I ever bought was Al Green's 'Greatest Hits' LP. First 'Northern' records I bought were Mikki Farrow 'Set my heart at ease' Karate, Major Lance 'Investigate' Okeh PS and JJ Barnes 'Real Humdinger' Ric Tic WD - all in a oner. Still have ...
  8. Was also a spin for Rod at Thorne if I remember - in fact picked mine up off a Voices list after hearing it there for 20 quid. Me and our youth fiddled with it at the Wilton on a number of occasions late 90s/ early noughties - always seemed to clear the floor...
  9. Soul Scene Villains

    It's been a right old love in since Psycho kissed THE badge at Ted's testimonial. However, some of your lot were noted hiding behind their wives in a boozer in Ilson prior to one of Roberts doos at one of the get togethers (apparently).....
  10. Oldies Nighter Dj Poll

    Chris Dalton. Was THE Cleethorpes oldies man in the day. No cheap imitations and none of this Wigan bollocks. Get him on, but he needs to dig out Brenda Lee's 'Where's The Melody' first.
  11. Cleethorpes weekender 2 years ago. I'd just got off the plane from Afghanistan - via the USA as we were working with the Yanks. MT home, double decker to Grim Town, drinks in Clee all afternoon, pissed as a tramp, but still high as ever, and couldn't stop dan...
  12. Don't know Chalky, but he definitely put some in Soul Packs - our youth picked one in a pack off Rob way back. We also picked one up off Manny in a Soul Pack back end of the 70s/early 80s also. So that doesn't probably answer your question who initially dug t...
  13. Cleethorpes Winter Gardens (which in its day, was as good as any AN imo), closely followed by Notts Palais. Went to a few JazzFunk all-dayers in the Kent/Essex area but Purley was pretty massive - must have got 3-4000 in - but could never get my head ar...
  14. Have fun. A barely missed a Wilton for the first 8 years - now I can't seem to get to a nighter at all I was planning to go tonight, but a few misguided politicians with a view to creating a new Suez have ensured I'll spend most of the w/end in the Lond...
