EMAIL: kopite@singnet.com.sg

PLACE: Singapore

DATE: 8-11-98

MESSAGE: In about 1971 I went for the first time to The Torch in Tunstall mainly because I’d been soul mad as a young teenager and I read about it in Blues & Soul magazine as ’the’ soul club. I knew so little about it that on my 1st visit to The Torch (embarrasingly) I was inapporpriately dressed as I went in a suit!! A lot of people must have guessed it was my first time. I carried on going occasionally to The Torch and then after it closed later to all dayers at The Top Rank at Hanley, then to Blackpool Mecca and finally like everyone to Wigan Casino. However I only went to Wigan for 2 years from 1973 to 1975 as after that I moved to London then overseas and have been away from the UK for 20 years . I’m amazed at all the interest still in Northern Soul..... I used to go a lot with my brother and some friends - also went to The Catacombs in Wolverhampton but found it a bit dingy. My favourite records were: Cry Your Eyes Out - Dottie Cambridge (this is one I hardly ever hear mentioned on favourite lists & it was never mentioned in the Wigan Casino book nor in any of the documentaries) I think I first heard it at The Torch? Can anyone else remeber this record. I bought it for about 20p in a 2nd hand record shop in Coventry when it was quite big on the scene. An early favourite was PP Arnold’s " Everything’s Gonna be Alright" This was one of those that made your heart skip a little beat every time it played in the early days. The later as the scene developed I got to really like " It Reall Hurts me Girl" The Carstairs althoug I still associate it more with The Mecca than I do Wigan. I’m sure I heard this more at The Mecca? I wish more people would write to this page and contribute their memories.

MESSAGE: Apart from all those Poms in Australia, am I the farthest flung Northern Soul fan on the planet. I started going to The Torch in about 71 then graduated to Wigan via Blackpool Mecca (Highland Room) & the all dayers run by Chris Burton at Top Rank Hanley. It’s a funny thing but in all the fuss about ’Wigan’ I hardly ever hear anyone talk about The Torch or about the all-dayers at the Top Rank at Hanley which were excellent and yet they’re hardly ever mentioned.now!! Sorry, I must be very old, well I’m 46 now.... What ever happened to Frank Elson who wrote the B&S " Check out the North" column? I was mentioned in thee once..... sad claim I know, who wasn’t mentioned?? Hi to everyone who ever made it to Tunstall (The Torch) Blackpool Mecca, & of course Wigan.... Thanks to Rob Moss from Coventry, my introduction to soul & hi to my brother Nick Wetton and Rob & Val Loughrey from Hinckley, great northern soul fans all....keep the faith. Andy Wetton

PLACE: Manchester

DATE: 05/09/98

MESSAGE: Well I’m still aching like crazy from Sunday. The night started around 8.30pm at a Ritz warm up bash at JO JO’s in Oldham, about 10 miles from Manchester. People were there from all over the North West, and as far as Southampton consisting of old faces, very old faces, plus I’m pleased to say new ones. We stayed there until about 11.00pm getting psyched up listening to some real music, not the crap you’re forced to swallow on the radio. We parked the cars next to the Ritz and started to join the queue chatting about all sorts - football, cars, beer, work old scooter run stories, telling jokes and laughing unless it was one of Billy’s. Anyway within 30 - 40 minutes were in, wrestling our money through the cashiers slot, through the double swing door’s and AHHH...... Northern Soul at 150mph and loud enough to make your ears bleed. Well, the night went quickly as it always seems to do, (to me) and the excellent line up of jocks played out of their skins totally satisfying around 1200 hungry souls. Even with the present ever busy Northern Soul scene in the North West of England, I along thousands of others will always go hungry, but then again I don’t want a belly full. In reply to your question "do I know you." Probably not as I’ve never been to OZ. Unless of course you’ve been here and graced our danced floors...... If you haven’t you should. Anyway I’m off now so take care, and of course "KEEP THE FAITH" Tony

PLACE: Baltimore, MD USA

DATE: 3/12/98

MESSAGE: My name is Jason and I am a true Northern fanatic. I'm 26 years old and from Wheeling, West Virginia originally. I have been collecting records since 1978 since the age of 6. I have been through many different styles of music throughout my life, but nothing satisfies me more than Northern. I have been listening to Northern Soul all my life, but didn't recognize it until 1991. I listened to Northern records to see what the common thread was in terms of sound. Now that I've been listening for so many years, I discover my own Northern newies. In 1984 I became a skilled hip hop/house DJ. I then took my mixing to a new level by blending and cutting northern records. In Baltimore, we have a night once a month in Club Midnite. I do my northern soul mixes to a sometimes packed dance floor. Now that I live in Baltimore, I actually meet people with my interest. Goldmine CD's have also been a great help. But I must say that your site and others like it are long overdue! When I lived in West Virginia, I had no connection with the Northern Soul community for years-now I do-and I'm very happy. Thanks for bringing me home, Mick!
Best Personal Regards, Jason H. Thornton.
P.S. I welcome all e-mail from other soul fans. I have a lot of record collecting under my belt, and I could be a good source of information.
