    The Root Down

    An evening of Dancefloor Jazz, Funk and 7ts through to Modern Soul at Lloyds Hotel, Chorlton, Manchester on Sunday evening 30th January 7-12 with Andy Rattigan. Free Admission. As I have sold all my vinyl collection I will be playing music from CDs so this is not a night to ogle rare 45s it is a night to appreciate music a lot of which (the dancefloor jazz stuff) rarely gets played anywhere nowadays apart from a handful of disce..

    Hi Alison. I also enjoyed Colin C's Berlin Classics set. He is my favourite DJ by far with a very similar eclectic taste in music to myself. See you out and about in 2011
  7. Oh I do hate excessive acrobats. A little bit of floorwork is ok if done right but too many backdrops and excessive high kicking out of tune to the music doesnt constitute good dancing to me. Each to their own and as long as people are having a good time it shouldnt really matter too much how they look. However, it is different when bad dancing technique is presented to the public as representative of the best in 'Northern Soul ..

    News: Another Nail In The Vinyl Coffin

    It is probably inevitable that vinyl will die off completely. If there is any kind of Northern Soul scene left in 20 or 30 years, I would guess that the youngsters who will have to have embraced it for it to stay alive will be playing tunes off of mp3s or somesuch thing. The Modern scene by and large seems to be less format obsessed than the Northern scene but that's because a lot of Neo Soul is only released on cd anyway o..

    Timothy Wilson

    "I must Love You" is another great 45 track by him and his 1978 album on H&L is an absolute masterpiece of Modern Soul.

    I might make the arduous journey down from Manchester by coach unless any one is driving down and would care to give me a lift. If this is the last 100 club as Ive heard rumoured Id be gutted if I missed it.
