    Is it from Manchester? Not sure.
    Do you like Ska? I thought The Untouchables were great ('Free Yourself' is brill). I think they were Ska.

    Wigan?

    I love ... pretty much everything!
     
  5. There was a program about ska/Northern soul etc on BBC3 a few Friday evenings ago. Can't really remember too much about as I'd have a few glasses of red wine by the time it was on;)

    That is not really very helpful :becool:
     
  7. I tell a lie - it was on BBC4. They're having a Pink Floyd night tomorrow from 9pm. Now where did I leave that tie-died kaftan?

    Perhaps the north of the USA?

    I thought it was called northern soul because the Lancashire lads and lasses stayed in love with soul while the south donned wizard gowns and went all prog rock.

    I got into Northern soul as a result of seeing a Granada documentary in the 70's about Wigan Casino. It made quite an impressin. The other day searching You-tube I found the whole show there and watched it, after 30 years it all came flooding back. To a 7 or 8 year old kid growing up in parochial Devon, Wigan, the industrial North was another world with a whole different soundtrack. That soundtrack stayed in my head until about 7 years ago when I bopught my first Northern Soul CD and I was forever hooked. Even went to Manchester for a NS night hosted by an original Casino DJ... great fun, but impossible to dance to!

    Miloat and Reynard are confused and quite possibly young.

    Hard to describe being sixteen and The Special AKA.
