I love northern soul music , well soul in general.
Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged from the British mod scene, initially in northern England in the late 1960s. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style black American soul ,based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Motown sound… so I hear.
The Wigan casino was the most famous venue in the UK for these kinds of nights, it would be on a par with Sir Henrys in Cork for house music I suppose.
My own Mum and Dad were still in secondary school when the amphetamine stuffed soul club was at its peak.
Northern soul dancing should look like this ……..
Not like this ....
