Northern Soul – In 1967 an underground movement developed via ‘The Twisted Wheel Club’ in Manchester, U.K. Regular all night ‘raves’ saw the introduction of rare soul 45’s being played to a youthful ‘fed up with the UK pop hit’ syndrome. Soon, this bizarre youth culture turned the North of England into ‘the place to be’ every Saturday night and following the closure of ‘The Wheel’ in 1970 saw a plethora of hip clubs such as ‘The Catacombs’ (Wolverhampton), ‘The Golden Torch’ (Stoke-on-Trent) and the daddy of them all – ‘Wigan Casino’. The latter (1973-1981) was the scenes most famous all night venue from where the most popular singles emerged.
