As it was, I went to every Northern Soul event in Lincoln I could get into until the mid 1980's when the scene seemed to disappear altogether for a little while (I now know that it was more down to the fact that I didn't know the right people to speak to)

Now...if only I could get a job to feed my obsession properly, lol
