    Oldest Established 60S/soul Club

    I meant established as in founded or set up and not in the sense of longest running, ok didnt know 6ts Rhythm and Soul Society formed in 79, so you have answered my question. Havent said we were a soul club just used that in title along with 60s. Also the posting was just giving a bit of background and publicity on our club, sometimes its nice to know the roots and history of a place. The post was a bit tongue in cheek. As in all posts they spark some sort of debate and response. Wasnt meant to be particularly serious
  6. Not the longest running but wonder if any one can beat Cafe A Go Go for the oldest ESTABLISHED club. We started Cafe in Cardiff originally in march 1982. Off the back of the mod revival we strayed into psychadelia. On the opening night in Duke Street Arcade we had nearly 400 people turn up. from all over country Had to turn loads away, most waited in arcade and took their chances on a one in one out. Ran for about year and a half. Started club back up in 2006 and after a few venue changes etc settled on our new home The Promised Land jan this year. Okay I know we had a bit of a break in the middle but we always intended to get it back open, just took a bit longer than we thought. Mind you my divorce helped, strangely enough only 3 months before we re-opened! So can we lay claim to oldest established.......? me on right btw

    The Geography Of Northernsoul

    Very healthy scene down here in Cardiff and South Wales. Attracting new people to the club every month, loads of youngsters late teens early 20s hear the music outside, come in and dance til the end of night. Loads of comments like what the f...k is this music, never heard anything like it b4 but its brilliant. The good thing is they keep coming back and bringing more people with them. Also loads of older people that were in to it when they were younger, rediscovering their love of soul. In fact Paul McCartney played cardiff ,night of last cafe we had load of people come over from the concert, including half a dozen in their 60s who were original mods back in the day, who couldnt believe there was a place for them to go at their age with the music they loved. They danced all night! WE have also bucked the trend a little in boy/girl. For some reason girls are nearly outnumbering the blokes! Lastly it doesnt really matter if there are any dos on anywhere, coz clashes dont affect us, being in a foreign country like.

    Only Dancing To What You Know

    Love to dance to stuff that I dont know, great buzz trying to work out the beat and then when you have cracked it, awesome. I find that with exception of some tunes, i get a bit bored with the ones that I know from time to time. Also helps if there is good atmosphere on the floor, with loads of puzzled faces thinking, whats this, how the f...k can i dance to it. Always a danger of getting stuck in your comfort zone but if thats what you are happy with great. One thing i have noticed over the years tho is quite a bit of piss taking. If someone is prepared to get on the floor and give it a go, should it really matter what they look like or how they are dancing? If they are on the floor they are having a good time then thats what its all about. We have all looked a bit nuts at some stage or other on the floor, drunk, wasted, exhausted (although I havent fallen over ...yet!), but so many times i have seen little groups taking the pee out of people. If they are new to the scene or trying a new club for the first time then its really gona put them off from going again. Personally i will dance to anything, sometimes if Im just not getting it I will stop, but mostly muddle on through. Think you can adapt to most tunes be it slow, up tempo, great to also anticipate what beat may be coming next. Luv it!
