  1. I feel like I have lost a brother, so saddened by this news. One of the purest souls you could ever hope to have as a friend. You could always have a reasoned debate with Win, he had time for everyone, very diplomatic, articulate in his words, and had great empathy for the less fortunate. We shall all miss him dreadfully he enriched so many peoples lives. Carms (lollo) xx bless you Win RIP

    Must say we loved playing for you guys . What an absolute joy for you to have such a great support group of people that attend the venue each month that encourage the players to just go for it and play what they like with welcome ears. I don't think I have ever been thanked personally by so many , can't wait to return for part two
    Well it was my first visit to Go Go , to say I was overwhelmed by the place is an understatement. It was a mega journey for us as Nige had played at the H&J in Doncaster on friday night . The journey took us around 4.5 hours so we were a little jaded when we arrived around 4.30pm However after the benefit of an hours sleep and a shower and as the car pulled into that sleepy little dark side street and we saw the most amazing building , this being the old prison all in its cobblestone finery one got a power surge that could almost let the imagination run riot, the air felt slightly damp and foggy I couldn't help thinking a red coat might draw arms at any minute .... The place was just so atmospheric, it had such charisma , mind blowing ! It was just as exciting when we entered, the sound system is up there , one of the best to my ears. I guess this being a live music venue it has to be robust and powerful. I was captured by the projector for some time displaying great images on the high turrets , what looked like a caged Aretha watching down on us , the images on the cobblestone were just fabulous it was an amazing show of artistic flare. Add to that the kind of music we were privileged to hear the place was so highly charged you couldn't help but be moved by the venues uniqueness , a breath of fresh air to my ears having been witness in the last few years to what is in the main a retro soul scene that has unfortunately forgotten how to be adventurous and innovative in its play , this small club was like walking into heavens gates. I didn't know 80% of what I heard, felt quite the novice to be honest , so out of the loop. I loved the first Dj's type of play , he played my kinda funk Marva Whitney Spanky Wilson type stuff , then it was followed by Andrea who lifted it up another notch introducing more male hard vocals mixed in > I turned to Nige and said my god I wouldn't want to follow these two, they have been so brave in their play thinking Nige would play quality , but known quality , what was expected by many basically. How wrong could I have been I have never seen Nige play , like he played at Go Go , my god he was on fire, surprising many of us at his choice of play and he absolutely loved it , you could see his pleasure and excitement , reaching eagerly for the next sound , feeling like the box had expanded not reduced , he was hungry for this one How could I have missed him collecting these tracks that I didn't know he had? Has my head been in the sand ? Dean thank you so much for the invitation to visit a club that you must be really proud of, what an achievement , such freedom of play and such an accepting audience. what I call a curve ball crowd , excited by the anything that has a good beat. I stood back and watched those younger people bouncing , feeling the music like I wish I could , unfortunately age prohibits me from moving so vigorously. So many on the soul Zone it was An Ace night ! The Dj's were all awesome their sets fitted together like the fingers on the same black leather glove , I loved the total punchy unpredictability of the night. Sandra Richardson was just amazing to hear on that sound system and it lifted me so high , "you got me catching a bus when I own a car".... what a lyric ! It drws parallel thought ...Living in Madchester where I have so much quality at my disposal ...why would I travel to Bristol ? ..... It would have to be exceptional ... Yes this place stands alone ....never experienced a night like it...you had to be there ...you had to feel it to know what I mean. Credit to the promoters in their selection of players for this night. If you get a chance ........Go Go Go , your time won't be wasted
  4. Ian will be remembered as a really nice gentle soul , well respected who will be missed by many .... Play I hurt on the other side for me...on the the other side xxxx Carms

    Keele All Nighter

    Well if a nights success is measured by the speed the event takes you to the end of your journey, ours being 4am last night's Keele experience has to be one of the best I have sampled. The night flew past at astonishing pace. We arrived just before ten and spent time chatting downstairs catching up with many friends and also listening to the lounge beats as I was due to play at eleven. When it was time to play the hour just sped by I absolutely loved contributing to the cafe culture of keeping things light and inspiringly soulful. The mission was playing records that I hold dear some priceless to me and some that are affordable to all married together like the price tag comparison didn't exist. Feeling like I was in the most natural of zones it flowed so easily before I knew it I was handing over to Tim and was left wishing I had one more hour to play so many truly soulful records that don't get played because they are a slower beat. Hope Oz found the middle I played quite a bit of 70's too which tickled the feet whilst I stood back and observed the crowd pouring in hopefully giving them a great start to their night. Upstairs the night evolved into an extremely charged night each Dj raised the level as they played in succession giving us a diversely exciting night. It was a sea of heads bobbing up and down to a frantic beat. I cant remember enjoying an oldies room so much ...Keele is up there as the righter you just have to do. And I didn't get a chance to sample the other rooms ? Fantastic night !

    Soul Toon 5

    Loved playing in the underplayed room , thank you for your support. It goes without saying that I think this promotion has got everything right and is well loved by all its fans that support it with their feet every time it's on. Personally I find the Geordies so accommodating they make every one so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. I have to applaud Paul Conroy he has to be the most caring promoter I know, amazed at the time he puts in to make sure everything is going to plan to the smallest detail and that everyone goes home happy. Now I was asked to put up my play list by a couple of people so here it is , a mixture of sounds that span a variation of tempos and styles to keep things interesting Frank Howard - Judy The Impallas - Speed Up Brenda Jones - Big Mistake Alice Clarke - Don't you care Lee Williams & the Cybals - A girl from a country town The SFTKo's - Make up your mind The Dynamics - You make me feel so good The Continental 4 - The way that I love you The Jive FIve - If I had a chance to love you The Esquires - State Fair The Sharpees - Take me to your Leader Terri North - You mention my name Teri Mathews - Round and round The Impressions - Love me Victoria Williams & JB Ledbetter - Show some sign Jimmy Norman - Family Tree The Incredibles - Miss Treatment Jimmy Preacher Elle - I'm gonna do it all by myself Sherri Taylor - He's the one that rings my bell Calvin Arnold - Lovely way to go Lloyd Price - Every night Tommy Ridgley - My Ordinary girl George Wydell - Funny Feeling Slim Harpo - Gonna keep what I got Jamo Thomas *& His Orchestra - Stop the baby Bobby Blues Bland - You got me Cheers Carms
