Northern Soul

Postby fairydandy » Sun Sep 02, 2012 12:06 am

Wow, I just watched a great little film (a little cheesy, but hey, it's Saturday and a few drinks helps...) called 'Soul Boy', that centred around Northern Soul dancing and music. I witnessed this a few times in the late '70's and always thought it was just the best dance ever. These were the days of my life... :P

Here's a taste...

Fantastic isn't it?

Mercy reply No 2.

The guy in the red T shirt is a great dancer, so is the guy in the black vest. Just love it, it's fantastic!

A botski? :P I know, it's as populated as Pripyat town centre.

Nearly unrelated, have a watch of this, particularly from about 1:40 onwards. That poor policewoman has perhaps got the worst job in the world. It's the capital of North Korea, Pyongyang, about 6 in the morning. Everyone wandering around like mindless zombies.
