  3. A new vinyl album from Outta Sight Records that is sure to kick start many soul fans of a certain time memory cells. Here's the details... MR M's NORTHERN SOUL OUT NOW The “nighters” at Wigan Casino initially ran from 2am-8am every Saturday night/Sunday morning. From midnight onwards, crowds would gather outside and spill over onto the road blocking the local traffic. As attendances grew the crowds became a problem, particularly to the local constabulary, and on the eve of the Casino’s 1st Anniversary – with a genuine threat of closure looming – a momentous decision was made. Gerry M

  10. The Wigan Today website features an news article all about the possibility of a follow up to the much talked about Northern Soul play based around Wigan Casino. Titled 'Once Upon A Time In Wigan' the play did attract a fair amount of controversy after its original run. The comments on a previous Soul Source news item do touch upon this controversy and can be read via the following link... Once Upon a time documentary A clip of the Wigan Today article follows along with a link to the full article... A playwright known for his account of the glory days of Wigan Casino is back on th
  11. The Top of the Pops showing of Wigans Chosen Few dancers back in 1975 is often mentioned when talking about "all our yesterdays" on here and other places and sure that those who were around at that time can remember the actual show or indeed the follow on effect that it had. As has been said many times it was thought that no copies of this episode have survived the years due to the practice of wiping and re-using tapes that the BBC had at the time Online archives do put the appearance date as 30-01-75 , (it also says was used again two weeks later but memory and the listing says that
  12. In Ace Records own words - "Never before has Kent released such an unashamed "All The Hits" Northern Soul package. The excuse that we needed was being asked to produce the soundtrack CD for the new play Once Upon A Time In Wigan." This month (Feb 04) sees the release of ONCE UPON A TIME IN WIGAN (CDKEND 227 Kent/Ace Records) the soundtrack to a the play based on the lives of four 70s teenagers who spend their adolescence growing up at the shrine to Northern Soul, the Wigan Casino The following write up is via Ady Croasdell. Never before has Kent released such an unashamed "All T
  13. While following Paul Masons (BBC Newsnight) twitter feed, I noticed amongst all the "current affairs" type tweets one or two comments/connections that could be taken as northern soul related, which at the time made me look twice, but didnt really give it that much thought. After seeing last week that he had tweeted a youtube link of the Carstairs, this again stirred my interest and led to me replying to his tweet asking if he was up for passing on a quick word or two on his northern background (so to speak). As felt that it could be interesting reading for members here on Soul Source. Any
  14. 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

  20. The Road To Wigan Casino By Vivien Goldman Originally published in NME Date of publication: 11 October 1975 Up T'NORTH, they don't like London journalists snooping about.

THE YOUNG boy sitting cross-legged on the edge of the stage looked as if he was about to throw up. It was 4:30 a.m. at the Wigan Casino. He looked as if he should have been in bed hours ago, but here he was, gazing plaintively up at slick cabaret master Tommy Hunt, as if the suavely dressed black m

  22. 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
