    From the mopeds that really remain just a way of getting from a to b, through the parkas which are similarly functional, to the 'Northern Soul' which really should refer to soul music from Detroit with feck all to do in any real sense with Wigan.

    The term 'northern soul' was reportedly coined in 1968 by music journalist and owner of the Covent Garden's Soul City record shop, Dave Godin.
    The handle would not become commonplace until some five years later when the northern soul scene took root in a handful of nightclubs scattered across the north of England. Godin's terminology wasn't an attempt to christen a burgeoning musical genre, but simply to describe a purchasing behaviour he'd observed among soul fans from the north who expressed a clear preference for obscure, Motown-descended mid-60s soul 45s over the harder, modern funk sound.


    As Godin explains
    I started to notice that northern football fans who were in London to follow their team were coming into the store to buy records – but they weren't at all interested in the latest developments in the black American chart. I devised the name as a shorthand sales term. It was just to say, if you've got customers from the north, don’t waste time playing them records currently in the US black chart, just play them what they like – 'northern soul'.
    Reminiscing on his days in the 1970s as a northern soul boy in the Guardian, Paul Mason acknowledges that "Today you would call northern soul an act of curation. By the time we danced to it, the music was already old."

    Love reign oer me. Pete Townsend is 75, Roger Daltrey is 76, and any actual Mods from the 60s are at least that age. Its where were all headed, if were lucky enough to live that long (hint: dont play drums). Never quit kicking ass, never quit doing your thing, never give up
