Northern Soul


Title:

Book


Label:

Virgin EX


Late 1960s Northern Britain. Black American Soul music collides with discontented youth to create a combustible new subculture - Northern Soul.  DJs unleash astounding record discoveries to young ears, hinting at a life beyond the grim reality of northern cities in the grip of post-industrial collapse.  Uptempo, uptown music captures the imaginations and bodies of northern youth.  New dance styles emerge.  Clubs become destinations. Records become legends. Amphetamine fuels marathon allnighters, which in turn become the ultimate outlet for self-expression and release. This was a life which was different to that mapped out for previous generations. A life beyond mere existence: fun, colourful, passionate.  This was Northern Soul.

By Reg Stickings - In the early seventies, Reg Stickings and his mates immersed themselves in a phenomenon epitomised by clubs like the Blackpool Mecca, The Wigan Casino, The Cali and the Bali Hi that inspired a whole generation who worshipped the soul music of the era.

Highly personal, often touching, Searching For Soul is a tale of the records, the fashion, football, travel, hardship, sacrifice and above all- the people.
