I know it's not everybody's bag but wherever there's a venue with an extra room, Modern has been an integral part of the scene.

This next track is one of my favourite Modern dancers...

God, hard to keep up with you lads, your knowledge of the music his first class and I learn more sounds everyday, thanks for the comments Bri. I must admit I find it hard to find a sound which does not appeal one way or another. Thats why you have to love the northern soul music on first sound only, the rest just flows. Heres one from me tonight

Loved dancing to this, got that beat we all look for

Hey up Coke.
It's a great tune and the lad's got talent no diggedy doubt!
Whether it will get played on the scene is another matter.

If we're talking about new tunes that hit the spot, here's another you might like.
It's featured in the new *Soulboy film.
Gabriella Cilmi - Magic Carpet Ride

The version that gets extensive plays at Northern venues is sung by Kiki Dee - On A Magic Carpet Ride
They're both excellent tunes in their own right but personally I prefer Cilmi's newer version.


*Soulboy first showing: Saturday 19th June Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Little joe roman baby when your lonesome

Jem, had a few tears when the mecca came down, just like the casino and the torch. But guess what here we are still talking about them some 30 odd years later, they where special and nothing will ever take their place in my heart.

Jem,brian, Can you help? Stuart Maconie played this on Radio 2 last night and said afterwards it was frowned upon by the Northern Soul fraternity because it was a manufactured northern record made to jump on the band wagon in the mid 70s. I remember the record but never had it down as a northern record, and have never heard it played at any soul do at any time?


Maxine Nightingale

Posted by: brian j (586)  Report abuse
As far as I'm aware it's never been played on the scene.
It was, and still is, a gay anthem that reached #8 in the UK charts in 75.
It would have been frowned upon because of those 2 reasons.

Posted by: brian j (586)  Report abuse

RIP Harvey Fuqua.
Harvey Fuqua, a former doo-wop star with the Moonglows who went on to launch Marvin Gaye's career as well as his comeback, died in Detroit on Tuesday. He was 80.

He succumbed to 'coronary problems' after a brief illness.

The versatile artist, entrepreneur and Motown executive also shepherded the careers of such acts as Etta James, the Spinners, and Junior Walker & the All Stars.

Heard a song on the radio yesterday that I'm sure was played at the Casino, not necessarily the All-Nighters but definitely Saturday, Sunday & Monday nights.
"Take me in your Arms", performed by "The Doobie Brothers"???
Have I dreamt this or what?

Posted by: jem glover (1934)  Report abuse
Stuart can't answer that one,don't think I've heard that version before but it could have been played at the Casino at some point.They had all types of music at various nights.Lot's of the Motown acts did this song Isely Brothers,Gladys&the Pips,think it was this version that was first but may be wrong. Kim Weston Take Me In Your Arms

Posted by: brian j (586)  Report abuse
Sounds like something Steve Galeazzi or Mike Rolo would play in the early sessions but definitely not at a nighter as you stated.

It was originally recorded by Eddie Holland in 64 who co-wrote it with Holland and Dozier. However it was not released until it came out on A Cellar Full Of Motown Volume 2.
Kim Weston brought out her version in 65 and the Isley's in 68. The Doobie Brothers recorded it in the 70's.

Found a live version for you...

Upthetims: Yes mate. Went for a ride up Rivi Barn with the Wigan crew and then back for a glass of orange at the Swinley.
Saw quite a few faces from off the Lane that I hadn't seen for donkeys.
I didn't go into the main room, although really I should have, just to check it out.
It should really be billed as a Motown/Soul venue rather than Northern but that's just my opinion.

I was talking to a girl I hadn't seen for ages, she said 'I've just been on the dancefloor.' So I asked her what she danced to. 'Oh, I didn't have a dance' she said, 'I was kicking all the handbags off.'

I had my camera with me but for some reason I didn't take any pics. I should have really, to post on here.

Jem: I'm trying to make up for the 6 months I had off upto April. I might be the same again after September. Keep ploddin' on though!

Here's a really good article from today's Guardian and well worth a read all the way through if you have the inclination.


Last June, the 62-year-old American singer Nolan Porter flew into Britain to perform sell-out shows in Warwick and Oldham. Fans who revere Porter's two massive northern soul anthems, If I Could Only Be Sure and Keep On Keeping On, afforded the singer a rapturous welcome. Backed by
Birmingham soul outfit the Stone Foundation, Porter was so taken aback by the response, he vowed to return to Britain as quickly as possible.

Next month a new British film, SoulBoy, starring Martin Compston, Alfie Allen and Felicity Jones opens. Directed by Shimmy Marcus, the film (set in 1974) is your everyday story of boy meeting girl and girl dragging boy into Northern Soul culture. It's a warm picture, fuelled by a
fantastic soundtrack and some nice performances. Unfortunately, it's ruined by a very silly ending. Still, there's always photographer Elaine Constantine's debut feature film, Northern Soul, out in 2011, to look forward to. Constantine's deep knowledge of the scene promises to make it a major statement. Certainly, there's a sizable audience already in place for such celluloid offerings.

Every week, from Aberdeen to Brighton, people of all ages pour into northern soul clubs. The grandfather of them all, 6T's at London's 100 Club, has been running now for 31 years. Tellingly, some 6T's regulars appear in the video for Duffy's 2008 single Mercy. Many of Duffy's UK
contemporaries from Amy Winehouse to Paloma Faith have looked to northern for inspiration, and it's a sound that's currently being mined by the altogether hipper likes of Janelle Monáe and Aloe Blacc. New musical subcultures come and go but northern soul seems to run forever.

The scene's roots lie in the mid-60s and a Manchester club called Twisted Wheel, the place mods would later name, "the chapel of soul".
The club's DJ was Roger Eagle and his arrival could not have been timed better. London, formerly the home of soul, was awash with LSD and psychedelia and a generation of mods had nowhere to go and dance.
Eagle's beautiful selection of soul music was the beacon that attracted them from all over the UK.

Northern soul's trademark dancing was also first witnessed at The Wheel.
As the music of Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye filled the air, the beautifully dressed boys and girls would gather in circles before one of them would move into the middle to perform wild spins and floordrops.
These dances were later perfected in other clubs and the unique and brilliant northern soul dance was born.

Like all great mods, Eagle was a snob, a purist. His mission was to play a wide musical vista that also took in blues and ska. This laudable approach would have worked had the majority of his crowd not been out of their minds on speed, demanding faster and faster music to dance to.
Eagle gallantly resisted until bowing to the inevitable and moving to the Staxx Club on Fountain Street. Again, his timing was spot on:
obscure soul music was now being demanded by the crowd and, thankfully, America was full of the stuff.

In the early-60s, Berry Gordy's meteoric rise to fame as founder of Motown Records had inspired thousands of entrepreneurs to start their own soul labels. However, despite producing some excellent records, these label bosses lacked Gordy's business acumen and struggled to find
exposure. Labels, with names such as Shrine, Carnival and Topper died on the vine, leaving behind a small but fruitful musical legacy. It was that legacy which British soul DJs now began to cultivate, bringing in import after import to assuage the demands of their soul-hungry crowd.
The result was beautiful: the most obscure American artist, a Little Ann say, or a Tommy Hunt, suddenly found themselves revered by thousands of British working-class kids.

With the departure of Eagle from the Twisted Wheel, the focus switched to clubs such as The Torch in Stoke, the Blackpool Mecca, and what would prove be to be the Wembley Stadium of Northern Soul, Wigan Casino.
'We always knew who the undercover police were: they had big creases down their jeans which no one else would wear'


In early 1973 the Casino was struggling badly so local DJ Russ Winstanley approached the Casino's manager Gerry Marshall and offered to stage a northern soul night. Marshall's dwindling bank balance forced his hand.

On 22 September 1973, 652 kids paid 75p and rushed into the hall to be greeted by the Sherrys' anthemic Put Your Arms Around Me. The Casino never looked back.

This famed venue was known for its maple sprung dancefloor and a balcony that circled it on three sides. There were record stalls placed strategically around the club with dealers selling seven-inch import singles at eye-watering prices. By now, mod fashions had been replaced by brogue shoes, flares, vests, tank tops, and much longer hair. The
girls wore long skirts, which were handy for sashaying across the floor, and many brought holdalls containing talcum powder which would be sprinkled on the floor to make it easier to dance. With only soft drinks available at the bar, again amphetamines helped fuel the scene, keeping the faithful going through the night.

Some nights, undercover police would infiltrate the club. But, as Wigan regular and DJ Jo Wallis explains, fashion saved the day: "We always knew who they were because they had big creases down the front of their jeans which no one else would wear. We knew right away to warn the others." There was no trouble at the Casino, just the smell of Brut,
sweat and soul assaulting your senses as the condensation dropped from the roof.

And for years this huge youth cult went unnoticed, stayed unreported. The rock music press had no use for the scene, nor did the national newspapers. Which was fine by the northern soulers; they didn't crave celebrity or attention. They loved the secrecy of it all; it gave them personal one-upmanship.

In 1974, Winstanley asked the Wigan crowd one night if a BBC crew should be allowed in to film them. The answer was a resounding "NO!", despite this being a time when appearing on TV was seen as an achievement. A year later, the Casino relented and allowed Granada's This England crew
in. Big mistake. When the show aired, it switched on thousands of young Britons. Within weeks, record companies were issuing novelty records by made-up bands of sessioneers such as Wigan's Chosen Few, and hordes tried fruitlessly to gain entry.

By 1976, the regulars had moved on while a new generation – Bryan Ferry and David Bowie among them – turned their attention to the jazz-funk scene developing on Canvey Island. For three years, northern soul lay fallow until two diehards, Randy Cozens and Ady Croasdell started a Northern night in London's Covent Garden called 6T's. The first night
was a huge success. The club then moved around before settling at the 100 Club. It's still there today, making it the longest-running Northern Soul club in history.

In parallel, Croasdell started up the Kent label to issue great soul compilations, proof positive that the scene's canon contains some of the most exquisite music ever committed to vinyl, a fact picked up by many bands. In the 80s, Dexys Midnight Runners, the Jam and Soft Cell were the most obvious exemplars. In the 90s, after visiting the 100 Club one night, Noel Gallagher penned the brass-powered Oasis B-side Round Are Way.

Today, the soul spirit remains. "People see our band and ask, why have you not had more success?" says Neil Sheasby of the Stone Foundation. "But I tell them I've just made an album which Nolan Porter sings two songs on. That to me is success beyond belief."

The flame keeps burning.

Just no time to turn round at the moment but I'll try to make more of an effort over the weeks.

Thanks for the kind words Tony. I'd like to mostly reiterate Jem's earlier posting and say that it's a sheer enjoyment and a love of the music that I post the tunes.

Sad news this week. Lowton Civic Hall has just played out it's last Allnighter on Friday.
It was a much respected venue offering a Modern room and R&B room alongside it's main Northern room and will be sadly missed by the countless hundreds who used to frequent it every month.

On a more cheerful note, there are 2 fantastic concerts being held, one at the end of October and one at the beginning of November. Check out the line up on both of these as they differ slightly both in artistes and cost.




I'll try and surf through the latest tunes posted and post some myself later but here's one to be going on with from Cab Calloway's daughter...
You're Something Else

Jem: Whelley school was a godsend to the building trade.

I remember going to Gullick Dobson with the school at the latter end of the fourth year on a careers advice incentive. I wanted to be a draughtsman.
When their manager asked me how many A & O levels I had, as you needed at least 2 A's and 3 0's, my reply was 'what are those?'
That's how much knowledge I gleened from my education.
Hopefully I've advanced a bit since then!
