    Well said mate 👍🏻

    I think for a lot of people it seems the depiction of drug taking warts and all was hard to swallow (pun intended). But the mod, soul and skinhead scenes have always been partly driven by illicit substances and illicit behaviour - as has pretty much all of club life since it started - you can go back to the 1920 and 30s for that.... no everyone didn't take then and the same now. But it had a big influence on the types of records that were being picked and played and the path the scene took - i'm only going on what i have been told by people there at the time and from my own experiences over the last 20 years. You need the grit and the grime imho, that's what makes it exciting.

     

    ps. i was trying to re-quote chalky not myself btw! :)

    Does it matter if she was there or not?  Like you say you could have ten directors who were there making a film and nine would be wrong in the eyes of the other going by what you say.  It is nigh on impossible to make a film depicting how it actually was today.  She did a fantastic job getting the look right but it was never meant to represent any one specific year but simply an era wasn’t it?   She also had some extremely in the know consultants, movers and shakers at the time and dancers of the time, from which by all accounts she took her lead.  Obviously a bit of artistic licence was going to happen as it does on any movie.  

    It is all to easy to sit and nit pick on a forum, we didn’t go through what they did to finance it, go to the extraordinary lengths to get it pretty much right and at least give the viewer an idea what it was like, many have said she managed by and large to do that.  It was never going to satisfy some and I don’t think it set out to satisfy everyone, it is at the end of the day entertainment. 

    Well said mate 👍🏻

    For me it really missed the point.

    When I saw the trailers of the kids learning to dance I was genuinely excited because Soulboy which was such a disappointment but when I saw it I was just amazed at how it missed the point by as much. I was 15 years old when I first went to Wigan in late 1973 and sure there were loads of drugs and most but of us did partake BUT in the end it was all about the music and the dancing and the friendship and the atmosphere, and the exclusivity. So sorry Elaine,, you may have made few quid out of it but you are most definitely not Mrs Northern Soul and you missed a great opportunity to show the world what it was really like but instead you made a film about some lads who took loads of drugs and just happened to be into some soul music that was not meanstream.

    Wondering when anyone claimed to be 'Mrs Northern Soul'? Also I think you mean MAINstream, not 'meanstream' but with these sort of comments might as well be. 🙄😄

    I'm sure there was a WCD cover up that someone (i thought Butch) was playing. Maybe i've made it up! Hazy memory...

  7. Got to say i'm amazed it's anything past 1970, but if that's where the evidence points.... Must be like one of those r&b things that sound like an early 60s cut but are actually 70s releases. Who the dickens would of bought AW in 1975?!

    We know hardly anyone did but who were they targeting?!

  8. Two for sure in the States with collectors. Another over here with a YouTube user. Prob more about? I contacted the lable owner's family ages ago with no luck.

    Gilly has a theory who it might be if i remember rightly.


    There are other soul / funk releases on the label - Soul Commanders etc.
