  3. Hi Roburt, was the Salford (Venue) one in Little Hulton? rings a bell, but maybe for a different reason!
  4. great watch...thanks for sharing Rob
  5. for those not too far from Stockport (Greater Manchester) there's a Strawberry Studios exhibition at The Market Place Museum that runs until Jan 2018. Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am -5pm. Well worth a visit. Obvious connections with 10CC but also Factory Records, Smiths, Stone Roses, etc.
  6. It's a bit of fun...please take it as such. Can you add any to the list?
  7. I guess you may already know this, but Daryl ( and John Oates) have history with most of the musicians coming out of Philly, and the respective studio's of Sigma, Virtue, etc. They both played on Electric Indian 'Keem-O-Sabe' 1968, Marmaduke ( as well as others sides) with what most folks regard as " The Philiadelphia Funk Brothers"
  8. This might have done the rounds as a topic, so forgive me if so. What record would you have wanted your favourite Northern male/female/group (dead or alive) to have covered- that is Non-N.S. Maybe (...only maybe) exclude some obvious one's e.g. Beatles/Lennon & McCartney, etc. P.S. thought it a bit more light hearted than recent topics
  9. Well Steve, I can only speak for myself. I've never 'bought into anyone's way of life' for anything. Not then- and not now. I jettisoned the scene for many reasons, some of which are highlighted in this topic. And although I might not have witnessed first hand how things have evolved over the past two decades, that doesn't mean i lost touch or lost that feel. There are always people keen to cash in-and civilians keen to participate. Most of us know the differences.
  10. Hi Russ It's just worth a quick mention that returnees(retreads) can also have been 'theoneswhowerethere'...but not maybe for the whole time. It doesn't follow that returnees make for a Div (by any definition).
  11. 1963: A slice of bread and Jam- by Tommy Rhattigan. one boy's year of adventure at the heart of a large Irish family in derelict Hulme. An easy read, but possibly more so if you are familiar with the locations.

  14. I got Mark's book delivered today-Sat 18th. And read it. I just couldn't put it down. Fascinating accounts on a much overlooked and overdue subject. I'm not a book critic as such...I just loved it. Favourite chapter for me is 13. congratulations, Mark atb ken
  15. I have a 1970 B&S The Motown Story edition- in good cond. I'd be interested in issue 13 or 14 to swap. or possible other early issue. Full description/scans etc if required. atb ken
