  1. I think you should keep it going, for two reasons Mike. Stopping it may lead to confusion with some members and secondly given that China is now all clear and India has never had it.... Storm in a propaganda tea cup.

  3. You are both correct of course. But Stephen Riley's book is a Northern Soul rather than a Rare Soul tome. So he covers the period post Twisted Wheel... Flamingo etc.
  4. There are several definitions... I prefer the Cambridge dictionary.. Factionalism: 'a situation in which a group forms within a larger group, especially one with slightly different ideas from the main group' Just for perspective I was born and brought up in Council houses for most of my life. I'm so posh that at 66 years of age, I still work 3 shifts full time in a factory. Do you know the meaning of the word 'patronise'? I can only speak from personal experience in terms of the books that I've read and I was just attempting to give some context to this particu
  5. I can only speak from personal experience in terms of the books that I've read and I was just attempting to give some context to this particular book. While many of the others may not be to my taste, I would never name the books or the authors as I have a great deal of respect for the effort, time and passion it takes to undertake such a monumental task. I think in many ways the Scene is a beast. More people are attending more events at present than at any time, including the so called halcyon days, back in the 70s and early 80s.The money being generated through events, memorabilia sales
  6. News/Article/Feature Highlight: A review. The book is a brilliantly written and well researched look at the Scene from the early days up to the present. It strips away some of the mythology and preconceptions surrounding the Scene. View full article
  7. There's a plethora of books readily available on the subject of "Northern Soul". I've ploughed through a good number of them....they're mainly (not all) personal memoirs of the Scene back in the 70's and most of them are poorly written, turgid affairs which rely on photographs to carry them. Most of them are fixated with Wigan Casino. There are exceptions, of course, but not many. 'The Truth About Northern Soul' is Stephen Riley's analysis of the Scene, warts and all, from it's early days and on to the beast it has become in the 2020's. It's a quite brilliant attempt at debunking the rose
  8. Kev... I'll get back to you with info later today. Sorry I can't be a bit faster.
  9. Book Review. When I was first knocking around the Rare Soul Scene, there was a guy from Cambridge called Norman Rogers. He was one of the 'faces'. Everywhere that he went, Norman took his camera. The story goes that it was a present from an aunt or uncle and that it was a top quality job.... In fact it was his father who gave him it. Over the years he's taken thousands of pictures, many of which have subsequently turned up in various books, magazines and TV documentaries often without Norman getting any accreditation or acknowledgement. So this book is, if you like, Norman's own t
