  4. Thanks. Great article. You should really think of putting a book together to document all this important, and often overlooked history.

  8. So much information and mis-information and now that Trump is attempting to weaponise the antidote by securing it 'exclusively' for the USA things are getting strange. Best to read widely and see what's happening on all fronts I reckon. We certainly aren't going to crap ourselves to death so god knows why people are bulk buying bog roll.... https://slate.com/technology/2020/03/coronavirus-mortality-rate-lower-than-we-think.html https://time.com/5798168/coronavirus-mortality-rate/ https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/15/trump-offers-large-sums-for-exclusive-access-to-coronavirus-vaccine http://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/scenario.html https://tbsnews.net/opinion/coronavirus-and-event-201-eerily-similar-41469
  9. Thanks for posting, really enjoyed reading it.
  10. Got my copy and very enjoyable. It is another personal account and it is good that it doesn't paint the usual confused and reimagined 'rose tinted' experience and scene. In terms of DIMS comment: It will have broad appeal. But, it would have been good to see Stephen (who is an academic, Dr) unpick some of the accounts that have gone before and which he deems as not telling the truth in more detail (which takes time and patience). It's very easy to criticise something, say something is inaccurate or not the truth, but to take it into the level of an educational tool it's not enough just to just do that and you must critique it. You then need to show and reveal why those previous accounts are biased or inaccurate in at least some detail. Thats why it remains as a personal account and readers are left to compare it themselves to the other books that provide solely personal accounts, or to their own experiences. It would have been good to see a bibliography to confirm which books/accounts Stephen has read and was referring to. The discography, as any discography, provides a personal account and is useful. I am not a fan of Wikipedia references as they are not a source of accuracy and open to anyone applying their opinion or edit, be it true or false. Saying that, I enjoyed Stephens book and it resonated with many aspects of my own experience and it does indeed provide an alternative view to the bulk of, often lazily written and inaccurate, accounts that pop up seemingly every other week: often partisan and rambling. The word 'Truth' in the title and declarations in the book is obviously a dubious one as 'truth' is a very slippery, subjective and problematic word to apply to any account of events, so I take it with a pinch of salt, as it should be taken. A recommended read for sure.
  11. This book sounds interesting and researched so I'm looking forward to reading it. I think (like Dim) it is ok to critique some of the plethora of self published memoirs on Northern Soul that are claiming the history of the scene merely through their own, sometimes venue limited, views. This one (below) for instance actually puts me off just by its historically flimsy claims in the promotional blurb.
  12. Thanks Paul. I sold it years ago for a couple of grand. I remember going to Australia to trade it with Callum Flack who was, apart from Jason P, the only person I knew had it at the time. Traded for Bernetia Miller.

    Does what it says on the tin. I'm working away unfortunately, but would go just to ask Marco to play the ultra rare and incredibly soulful 'Ron & Joe - Go Away and Stay' which stops me in my tracks each time I hear it....
