  5. We need Stuart Cosgrove to write them all, you can be sure then they would be, entertaining knowledgeable and accurate.
  6. Rick you may wish to consider posting this reply directly onto the Guardian website, as you say these distortions that are constantly trotted out are in danger of becoming regarded as the 'truth', and I for one believe it is important to keep countering the propaganda.
  7. https://www.guardian....ul-soulboy-film " By 1976, the regulars had moved on while a new generation - Bryan Ferry and David Bowie among them - turned their attention to the jazz-funk scene developing on Canvey Island." Obviously being a Southerner, busy writing about the Jam for the NME, Paolo missed the Jazz Funk Scene at Rafters in Manchester and the Birmingham scene. "For three years (1976-1979 according to Paolo, as the first 6Ts was Aug 1979), northern soul lay fallow until two diehards, Randy Cozens and Ady Croasdell started a northern night in London's Covent Garden called 6T's. " Thank the Lord for the Southerners saving the scene!! My where would we have been without them. Strange though, as I seem to recall Wigan going until 1981, Yate being very much alive and kicking not to mention the wonderful Cleethorpes pier allnighters, then there was Stafford once Wigan shut, and oh so many more. Oh the re-writing of history. Paolo you really do need to investigate a little further north than Finchley. "By now, mod fashions had been replaced by brogue shoes, flares," OK which one of you had slipped on some flares instead of bags, own up, " or is this another example of Paolo not quite getting his facts straight!
  8. He's always had a way with words has Mr Cosgrove, Lx He
  9. Here is an old photo of our very own Spot - with hair - See you in Newquay Spot if not before, I'm bringing Douglas with me so you'd best warn Gail. Lorraine

He gave me his Eddie Parker Love you baby, that night. Kev if you are out there I still have it. From left to right Fiona; Kev Smith; Steve Midgley and ? can't remember her name. Anyone know? Where are they now? Lorraine
