  1. Ed Wolfrum by Rob Moss Article Photo: Detroit from the river 1966 The emergence of Detroit as a major music centre in the early 1960s has as much to do with technological expertise and sophistication, as it did with artistic creativity, musical talent or social migration. Yet, the coalescence of such a wide variety of highly skilled musicians, technicians, performers, engineers, entrepreneurs, composers and associated artisans all meeting at the same time, in the same place created a unique collusion that resulted in a period of unprecedented financial and artistic success for the ci
  2. Leeds Central Soul Club Remembered The Coronavirus lockdown has given me much time to reminisce and I have decided to put into words a bit about my early days as a 'soulie' in Leeds. I first went to The Central in 1975 I think, when I was 19 years old - I was certainly a member by then, as I still have my membership card which was valid until 31-Aug-1976. I lived in Leeds at that time as it was where I grew up - although, I haven't lived there since 1982. I remember in the early to mid-seventies buying reggae records at Jumbo Records in the County Arcade upstairs - tunes

  4. The Post Wigan Years By Karl ‘Chalky’ White Much has been written about the Northern Soul scene up to the demise of The Wigan Casino, but very little has actually been written about what followed. For many, the scene died when Wigan Casino closed its doors for the final time. These same people would perversely discover that the scene was far from dead and that a hard-core crowd had continued to keep the flame burning and in the process, had taken the scene back underground with an aggressive upfront music policy. There are of course many misconceptions about the scene post Wigan, both

  11. From Blues and Soul - 1971 - Dave Godin Article on his visit to the Blackpool MeccaA lot has been said and written about the history of northern soul in the UK, normally it mentions the Wheel as the start, the Torch then Wigan and so on. The Mecca in Blackpool is usually remembered with a reference to Ian Levine, However as this article from Blues and Soul in 1971 points out, prior to the rise of New Yorkers, the Mecca was a ... well a Mecca for rare soul. site note - article reformated From Blues and Soul - 1971 - Dave Godin Article on Blackpool Mecca From
  12. The Uk Vibe website has a must visit lengthy and photo heavy article just up. The title 'The Art of Ian Clark' should have you already right clicking and opening in a new window, but if you are still here and not convinced here's a brief preview of what you be getting.. A Soothing ‘Slow Moody Black n Bluesy’ Art Direction by Ian Clark Image taken at a Reggae night in West Ealing sourced from Pictorial Press, Described by Ady Croasdell as ‘The Mona Lisa of Soul Music’ Due to the stare of the young lady in pic. The Kent section did not resemble your average soul reissues,
  13. A look at the 'Popcorn Scene' could be read in the Guardian yesterday and while its a mainstream take it read quite well to me. A few preview clips... Belgium's 'Popcorn': the last underground music scene in Europe Antwerp's answer to northern soul has a drowsy, decadent vibe and its DJs favour eclecticism, jive music and playing records at the wrong speed. Bob Stanley gets into its strange groove ... DJ plays Eartha Kitt, the Skatalites, something that sounds like a northern soul record at the wrong speed. The atmosphere is friendly but exclusive, and the musical mood dark
  14. Following on from the Graham Warr thread, I figured that this is the time to start collating some of those UNBELIEVABLE U.S. Northern finds. Or unbelievable disappointments too. From experience, it's quite often the unexpected ones which turn out to be killers! So here's an example from me, just to kick things off.... In 1988 I was stuck in a pretty boring job in between my more exciting jobs when I got a phone call from my ex boss who used to own the Warehouse in Leeds. He'd recently moved out to Denver, Colorado and was thinking about opening a club out there, so he invited me
  15. Another scan added to our reference feature. This one features a fairly lengthy look at the Northern Soul Scene from the Melody Maker music paper, the 25th January 1975 Issue, with the main focus on Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino. "Keep The Scene Alive" Inside the ballrooms that are the citadel of the NORTHERN SOUL scene. Great music. Athletic dancing.Later, breakfast and a swim."The scene is here as long as the punters want it" says one DJ. "Its essence is rarity and it's up to us to keep that rarity".

  18. Being a relative newcomer to what would become a lifelong obsession. I was a wide eyed kid in 1976/77. And the whole excitement of the Northern soul scene consumed my life, the old adage of living for the weekend was never more true in those days. New friends, new outlook, new life. Every weekend was a new adventure to me. Of course the first place I attended was the legendary Wigan casino, and from the moment I walked through those doors, I breathed in the sound and the atmosphere of Northern soul. Soon we would be visiting other venues, people would tell you of other venues, on the train or

  24. Here is a very old review of Wigan Casino I did. We'd stopped going in 1978, and having heard one of Sam's spot's at Bedford, I decided to venture north once more recording the visit in Blackbeat. Usual health warning - please remember I was very young when I wrote this, but I wonder how many cover up's can be uncovered from this article. From Blackbeat Issue 4 Wigan Casino May 1980 Review My first visit to Wigan for over a year (it costs over 25 on the train for us). Firstly we sussed MP Cyril Smith on the train scoffing sandwiches (is this the Liberals solution to the p
