    Liverpool V Real Madrid Final tonight - any calls?

    Quietly drowning my sorrows with IPA. Beaten by a totally brilliant goal by Bale. But for two cataclysmic goalkeeping errors, Reds played well with loads of creditable individual performances. Losing Mo Salah was the turning point and the team were struggling from then onwards.

    Liverpool V Real Madrid Final tonight - any calls?

    The Allnighter should help you get over United’s loss to Chelsea last weekend...Pogba must have been poking pins in his eyes to miss an easy scoring chance. Better to lose a European Final to tough opposition than to capitulate feebly to a team that didn’t qualify for next year’s Champions’ League.

    Liverpool V Real Madrid Final tonight - any calls?

    Quietly confident. Reds are rested and raring to go. Allez, allez, allez....

    ' A youth culture left in the hands of old men'

    An old culture in the hands of youthful men as I see it. Vintage music from the 50’s and 60’s in the custodianship of 60 year old spinners and 20 year old backdroppers. The music keeps you young at heart. As has been mentioned many times on Soul-Source, folk of all ages rub shoulders at Allnighters and soul nights, Weekenders and Alldayers - the scene is progressive but has a fine history to look back on. It’s all magic to me a..

    old north wales allnighter venue gone

    Time Marches On... Saw KC and the Sunshine Band there in 1974 and went to just the one Allnighter in 1978. Not quite Cleethorpes Pier but neverthelesss a good venue for this part of the country. Big following of the music up there back in the day with plenty travelling from Holyhead, Llangefni and Bangor.

    Coasters - Crazy Baby. Boot/original?

    Stop. Stop. Stop... Crazy Baby... Will this thread never end? Great record, but best bought as a white demo on vinyl if you want an original. As Charlie Big Potatoes informs us, the disc was booted on vinyl as an issue. The original issue has been booted/reissued so lookalike styrene discs appear very similar at a glance, but closer inspection reveals significant differences highlighted in this thread and Manship’s fifth edition. A..

    The rise of the 'NEW' soulie and the soul revolution.

    Without sounding too pedantic, the Kwai Bridge is over a river in Thailand... After I’d filled up on chicken sandwiches, I was so wide awake, I’d study my Geography Atlas on the train back home.

    The rise of the 'NEW' soulie and the soul revolution.

    It was Coke that kept some of us going at Wigan. Bottles and bottles of it, you could fill a round table top with the empties. That and chicken sandwiches from the upstairs bar, totally delicious at six in the morning with hunger kicking in.

    Getting rolled in the bogs wouldn’t have been very pleasant with the floor three inches deep in piss and beer...

    The rise of the 'NEW' soulie and the soul revolution.

    I can remember one night in August 1977 when the punks were chased up the alley alongside the Casino as a rumour was going around that a punk rocker had taken a pop at a soulie. The only argie-bargie I saw in the Casino involved two blokes from the same place squabbling over a girl - when the bouncer stepped in at the front right of the stage, someone said they knew there’d be trouble if so-and-so came - evidently an incident barel..

    The rise of the 'NEW' soulie and the soul revolution.

    Don’t give the few drunken wallies who used to stagger around any credit for their presence. Getting off the last train from Manchester was an uplifting experience as every carriage was packed with soulies - there were hundreds of people filing up the road to the Casino so there was never any feeling of being intimidated. Same with the last train from Bank Quay, especially with a crowd of mates - never saw any aggro from the locals..
