[color=rgb(40,40,40)]In the mid-70s, one of the later outcrops of the Mod emerged: The Soul Boy. Clothes- and dance music- obsessed, with a geographical divide between the Northern and the Southern Soul Boys. The Northern Soul scene was rooted in The North West, in Manchester and Wigan, and had a wild, backwards looking enthusiasm about classic 60s soul, whereas the Southern Soul Boys in Essex and Kent were more interested in contemporary soul. Loose fitting clothes were important, the work hard and dance hard ethos was all part of this subculture that never left the council estates. Multi-culturalism was embraced with both black and white working-class celebrating music together through dance and shared tastes.[/color]
