  1. Neither have a missed nights out, mates etc yes but the music I have heard at home has been far better than most nights out. Converting old tapes to upload I’ve heard many I haven’t heard in years.
  2. I’ve not seen many suggest a second wave won’t happen? I’ve worked throughout this and been all over the country and I’ve seen nothing to suggest people will be respectful of others once Limitations are eased, quite the contrary tbh. M ay distribution centre, sites factories hardly any social distancing. Those who have since returned Far too many have simply slipped back into their old ways and for this reason a lone I don’t think any event of any kind can work successfully until this virus has disappeared or we all have immunity. Our scene has to be one of the unhealthiest especially amongst regualr nighter goers especially once the sherbet dip is opened and the ale flows, all inhibitions just go out of the window. Too many around me amongst family and friends who would be at risk For me to consider returning to a venue this year at the very least. Many others on an ageing scene would be in the at risk category too, lack of sleep, drugs etc all reduce the capability of the immune system.
  3. Plenty of time to live once a vaccine is found. Laid up with a virus doesn’t pay the rent and bills. If no vaccine can be found then that is a whole different ball game.
  4. Folks will be running and attending events as soon as the words leave Boris’s mouth with no regard to the consequences such as a second spike.
  5. B-Side erroneously credited to "R. Ford" instead of "R. Fort" Black label matrix etc, what is the run out details on the brown? Matrix / Runout: 13696 Matrix / Runout: 13697 Label Code: 13696-R Label Code: 13697
  6. Both from same year but the black has the wrong credit according to discogs, maybe be black then brown when corrected?

    you couldn't make it up Len, why was your dad dressed as a clown though?
  8. well northern soul was always about self expression. Line dancing (leave it for other scenes), the dress and the rest that goes with the kind of events in question are as I said far removed from the all-nighter circuit, not your Kings Hall, Tower Ballroom events but your week in week out venues that still show a desire to stick to the ethos and spirit of the original all-nighters. As I said he is enjoying Shirebrook and the rest and best of luck to him, thats all that matters at the end of the day.

    I missed the clown story, please tell!

    Keep dipping in and out, some ace music being played
  13. Viewing from the outside probably yes they do believe it portrays the scene. In reality it is about as far removed from the real scene as you can get. But the lad has to start somewhere. I doubt he will move on from the parody that is Shirebrook and its line dancing but he is enjoying himself. He has had a tough start to life, one most cannot imagine. The relationship between the lad and his carer(s) was heartwarming and those who have shown him friendship and love deserve the plaudits that come their way. He wouldn't have found the kind of friendship or acceptance down the town on a Saturday night that this scene shows to people. He may at some point decide to delve into the murky waters of the real scene but I somehow can't see that happening. He or those around him won't affect what we do but best of luck to him and his friends.
  14. Mine arrived in Chicago, again, on the 26th but 27 it departed London, not sure if that is departed to or from?
  15. A Dj has to get his or her records from somewhere and regardless how successful the source or how good a record may be there is no guarantee it will work for the dance-floor. For me there are just two on the Northern scene, Richard and Butch. Butch edges it for me as he has been at the top since 86/87 and is still there. He can play just about any record any other Dj has. To be a top Dj or indeed top in any field you have to bring something to the table others can’t. Too many cheque book Djs the last 20 years or so for them to be considered IMO.
  16. Discussed with Butch his discoveries etc and most didn’t come from John. Some yes but the majority no.
  17. They are tested twice a week as well as temp every day. They can’t catch it from each other if they are all negative so social distancing in that scenario is a bit pointless. Get stuck in.
  18. Will be no events for me for some months yet, just because lockdown will be eased or indeed lifted doesn’t mean the virus has gone away.
  19. wasn't a Philly recording, done in Pittsburg

    Have to agree, Simon and Pete deserve knighthoods, its a tremendous amount of work alongside family and real work as well. Huge amount of thanks to both. great set pal

    I personally think the one is a better hour of 70s and 80s next
  22. The masters came from the same source, the one I mentioned, Eko II Productions and Barbara Landis. The band are probably musicians involved with them.
  23. Probably Johnny Daye IMO. He was a Pittsburg act real name John Di Bucci. Worked for Eko II Productions with Barbara Landis, they took the masters to Arctic. The source is the booklet in the Cool As Ice set. The notes don't say what or even if any involvement JD had in SoTT
