about

The definitive insiders account of the longest surviving scene in the history of British music contains rare interviews with artists from Motown right up to Fatboy Slim
 
What began as an underground 1960s Mod scene in unlicensed, no-frills clubs in the northwest of England became a youth craze that confounded its critics by surviving and growing into an adult dance phenomenon whose followers share a passion for black American music unrivaled anywhere else in the world. This book takes the first-ever, in-depth look at the culture, the music, the artists, and the people frequenting the all-night venues which are synonymous with the British Soul Scene. Packed with memorabilia and anecdotes from the Twisted Wheel in Manchester to the mighty Wigan Casino, this is the definitive history of a dance scene that refuses to die.
David Nowell is regarded as a figurehead of the Northern Soul scene. He is the coauthor of Soul Survivors: The Wigan Casino Story.
