Who’d have thought, all those years ago, that the soul music that us Northern Oiks embraced would eventually be played at the Albert Halls as part of the Proms.😅

From the Twisted Wheel, The Torch, Blackpool Mecca, The Va Va and yes Wigan Casino (there are many others) it’s now being broadcast to the masses. 
It was never meant to be for the masses, it was our music but it’s so good that it was only a matter of time I guess.

Credit to all those dj’s who went over the water to find those golden gems.

Keep the faith.

There's been some amazing more popular music based prom concerts over the years - have a look.

Bug Club at BOTW for us. Shitter that Squid is same night 

I was thinking about getting tickets to Bug Club but with xmas coming and three teenagers nights out are now at a premium! 

The actor in Ghosts is in Squid's video for The Blades. Do you ever get the Speedy Wunderland compilations - love the stuff on that label.

Not had any of the compilations but like a good few bands who have been involved with it. Went to see Warmduscher the other week and Dan Carey was in a band called Miss Tiny who were one of the supports and they were really good. Lounge Society played too.

Think Honeyglaze are on SW too. Or were. Saw them at The Snug in Atherton a while ago. Very good.

Yeah Honeyglaze are very good, got a very early 80s feel. Missed SW 10th anniversary gig at Village Underground - that looked great, Kae Tempest was there - just finished reading her novel earlier this year, that's really good and ties into her debut album - but the single Salt Coast is something else.

Although I think Pysch are my current SW favourite. Theuir album Howling At A Concrete Moon is worth a listen, perhaps not the most innovotive band but enjoyable none the less. Disco Lights is a great song
