  1. i would say no ..as the london mod scene had crashed before the northen scene took over ,the mods didnt exist for long in london ..not sure about elswhere though in the 60s..soho clubs never had any northern scene in the 60s imo
  2. its being talked up on the radio https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000jk57 Northern Soul is more than just music to Anthony Flavin - it’s a way of life. Anthony has grown up in care from the age of six. His great passions in life are music, fashion and films from the sixties and seventies, and his love for Northern Soul music tops them all. This heart-warming film follows Anthony in the run-up to his 18th birthday as he finds his place on Nottingham’s Northern Soul scene. With help from his keyworker Luke and a collection of Northern Soul friends, he is about to take his first steps as a DJ and towards an independent life. Has he mastered the decks in time to get this discerning crowd on the dancefloor? Show less
  3. so far so good here no fraud yet they are being sued in a class action case for 18 billion
  4. and how did he get the monopoly on BBC ?he cant have absolutely every record ever made . and the radio presenters offer a request of a song but play lists have been done before the program went out so theyre taking the P.. why no others can utilise their catalogues ?how much is phil paid ?so many questions about phil
  5. 150 cops that s a lota cops for 1 club all on overtime payments when bobbies did a raid they all rushed in blowing on whistles like the keystone cops ,hillarious times
  6. i found DJ copy on a stall in portobello road in the early 70s for a few shillings ..and sold it to dave edwards a few years back
  7. curious as back in the 50s to 60s BBC progs wouldnt have played anything decent even if they had some good 45s in the vaults as there just wasnt any program outlet as it was all on radio luxembourg and that was hard to hear on a tiny transistor radio as reception was bad ..but if you look at the vynil issued per week it was colossal.. BBC of the time was all billy cotton band show and music while you work .diabolical rubbish till the pirates came along and they would have their own demos and libraries
  8. and the whiskey agogo which was also another weird club of the time ..strange setup in there ..a crumby drinking club with aspirations of a gents club but wardour street wrong location
  9. its not very factual as according to my recall it should have been the Q club ,,courtesy of count suckles depictions of clubs from the 60s are never all that good .wrong music and crumby basement club which would have been crumby but not accurate
  10. djs are now superfluous to requirements as the progs are done by others well in advance ..so they just need to blab endlessly about twaddle to fill in ..how much are they paid now?peter young seems to have sold his collection before he popped off .wonder who got em? i was referring to unofficial sales
  11. i heard whispers some time back about rare 45s being stolen and sold off on the quiet..any possibility it could be true? Djs dont need em any more so what became of the record library ?are they being nicked and sold off ?
  12. the scene club soho was open last friday for a one off special invitation night and i am waiting for photos and videos
  13. list of agencies from record mirror of that time .clodagh rogers is there sitting by the phone waiting for your call
  14. the kingston cellar was actually upstairs over the boat storage so bands had to lug their gear and speakers up some steep stairs ,i have my members card somewhere
  15. some guys started the ham yardies club a few years back but dunno what happened to it .used to meet in a pub up in east london .must be ten years ago
  16. mentioning houston TX i did the record shops there about 7 years ago and all i found was rotten heavilly scratched 45s not worth a cent
  17. before and after the fire they had numerous ricky tick sites all over the area ..they came and went searching for the magic formula of success ..kids were fickle at the time..
  18. the ricky tick was an old rambling mansion with paneled walls and roaring fires and sofas ..it was a very large place .. shame it burnt down some years later..recall graham bond on there plus lots of others ..dj had a piano with decks built in
  19. used to have karate booga loo but it was stolen by da bitch in bromley
  20. guy did play some modern at the time 45s like the righteous bros youve lost that loving feeling which sounded perfect on the scene club sound system..plus lots of other 45s which had just been released
  21. the house of oldies maybe still going https://foursquare.com/v/house-of-oldies/4ba38862f964a520fd4438e3 House of Oldies 35 Carmine St (btwn Bedford & Bleecker St) New York, NY 10014 United States http://mbvintagenewyork.blogspot.com/2011/11/house-of-oldies-selling-last-centurys.html google house of oldies
  22. bleaker street used to be the place of record shops but dunno if it still is ..just have a mosey round there.. but you could be 30 years too late as mostly CDs ? i have some old 45s catalogues from shops in bleaker street ..prolly 60s priniting
  23. he played at the el partido in lewisham on 11 september 1965 ...my copy of always something was nicked by this slag in bromley who kept a handfull of my 45s in the 70s ..2 timing bitch he should have been bigger than he was ,bad management i guess
  24. i joined about 3 months after it opened you had to be nominated by other members as its was hard to get in at first ..i had some mates who were members who joined me up..there was always queues to get in on saturdays and you needed to get there early to get in as it was popular ..i have 2 members cards before it went out of fashion 63 to end of 65 .. at first i didnt want to spend the cash as it was a guinea to join and a guinea to get in on sats. but i soon realised it was a good deal due to the numerous bands in 1 night plus the latest sounds .i was hooked ..the amphetamines came a bit later
  25. guy stevens had his entire record collection stolen when he was in prison some years later ..must have been a bummer.... never went to the scene on mondays as too tired from the weekend..and crawdaddy on sundays with the yardbirds blazing away ..they were the best of all .with such a stellar lineup..
