  3. A photo of Chris Waddle came up on tv yesterday. When he moved from Newcastle to Spurs he commented in a magazine that he didn't think he would find northern soul in London....

    Unbelievable

    I'm not a collector but hate the thought of someone playing a bootleg. I know people who have been collecting for years. Some have hit it lucky with a cheapie in 1985 now going for mega bucks but it works both ways. Embarrassing when they've spent ages tracking down a record just to hear its been booted and the local doo are playing it. A small crowd of us travel regularly long distances to listen to certain djs, avoid certain p..

    ' A youth culture left in the hands of old men'

    There's a guy on the floor most of the night at Bury, always see him there. Was told he dances in the same way as he did at The Catacombs. We always make the same comment, there he is...fabulous!

    The rise of the 'NEW' soulie and the soul revolution.

    Would that have been in the main northern room at Blackpool? I don't think the baggy attire would be the norm in the modern or rare room. I have been going to the 100 club for many years and its never really had a dress code in my opinion. A mixture of smart mods, casual wear and maybe the odd soulie style. Maybe more northerners who are recent converts are following the so called dress code.I'm from Norwich which us considered south..

    Amazing times for me also in the 80s from the 100 club you hit Leighton buzzard, up to East Anglia with Peterborough. The mighty Midlands venues like Leicester and Chesterfield. On the east coast Cleethorpes WG and Morecambe on the west. Bradford and Warrington Parr hall up north and over the border to Shotts. Many more of course (Stafford and Clifton Hall setting the pace)

    Are we at a point now where the playing of expensive originals is considered snobbish by some people and they should play reissues instead? You couldn't make it up

    The rise of the 'NEW' soulie and the soul revolution.

    I ran a soul night in Norwich for 33+ years, kept the whole thing going whike many people had left and done that family thing. A returnee comes one night (l was poorly so not there) and goes into one because the music was unfamiliar, demanding her money back etc (apparently her friend had paid for her to get in!) Now she is getting spots playing the boots she had in the cupboard for the last 35 years, records that were dropped becaus..

    The death of large Hall commercial oldies nighters

    I missed the last Rugby, first one in a while. Must have been the one with the glow sticks n whistles cos I didn't see any such things in the last couple of tears at said venue.
