A precise definition of Northern Soul is a tough job. As a movement, its ability to adapt and embrace different styles has helped to make and keep it special. Lovers of Northern Soul, early Motown and such like.... if you know what an "All-Nighter" really is, this is the group for you.

The NS 'scene' is currently stronger than ever. Initially popular throughout the 70's, the rare soul scene has exploded recently. Partly nostalgia, but also fuelled by an unprecedented media interest in the music, and most importantly, stoked by the embers that never died in the hearts of soul fans.

The late great John Peel once said "Northern Soul is the only true underground music scene"

In fond memory of:
* The Torch &
* The Twisted Wheel
... and of course...
* The Wigan Casino, which ran from 1973 until 1981 and was at one point voted the best disco in the world by Billboard magazine.

    The delightful Levanna McLean does NS on a Bristol high street . . . "Happy" by Pharell seg-waying into "Happy" by Velvet Hammer. See Youtube vid at http://tinyurl.com/od3bcp4 - I reckon she'll surpass one million hits very soon.

I mean - you HAVE to watch this . . http://t.co/G15qXt1X …"What Elaine Constantine has done is what everyone else failed to do- remind us how young & fresh it all was & take it to the next generation"

    Play or download the legendary Ian levine's "Solid Soul Sensations" Northern Soul podcast at http://soundcloud.com/ian-levine/solid-soul-sensations-podcast - it's three hours long (169MB) and contains loads of obscure but nevertheless enjoyable soul tracks that I must confess I've never heard before. Only for the real officianados (smooth soul, no stompers).

    Short notice for this I know, but UK residents, (and anyone else with Internet radio) should catch the legendary Pete Waterman's "Too Darn Soulful" on BBC Radio Two at 10pm tonight, 20 December: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0186ss5 (It should also be on BBC Radio iplayer for a week, and MAY be available as a downloadable podcast afterwards). For any Tweeps out there, Pete is on Twitter @PWEofficial. On a related topic . . . keep a lookout for upcoming movie "Northern Soul" directed by Elaine Constantine. I'm sure this will be getting some major publicity soon http://www.northernsoulthefilm.com and on twitter @nsoulthefilm . They're looking for dancers, extras and anyone out there with money to invest
