I've got no real need to invent my history
Don't beleive all you hear
A new version of Wigan casino. Get's realised quite often everytime. It promises to be better than the last. Then goes on to describe a club I've never been in everybody looking at records. Over the 5 years, I went I didn't look in 1 record box. I did not go over 100 miles, to look at them. I like almost 99.9% of people went dancing. It was not just around 8 hours in the casino. A group from around the Wolverhampton area. Would meet up lunchtime in the Vic. The coach picked up around 10pm but time fly. Having a laugh, it was such a friendly atmosphere. Have a look at items Pep had in his shop next door. Roam around the Mander centre. It became a ritual being a part of a group.
At onestage, I would always be with. Rob Davies and Gary Haines (Hank). Rob was a scrap metal merchant. Spent a lot of Saturday afternoon's in Ashmore lake. Having a laugh Rob's house became a place for the local northern soul community to gather. I haven't seen Rob or Hank since Wigan. I got a message from his sister one night to say Rob , had been ill. But I didn't get the full story. When I asked around, it still got nothing conclusive from it. Everything will become clear in time. I hope Rob is ok. Each to their own way to earn a living. Rob liked to act off his own instruction. The family all worked and done well for themselves. His sister had done very well being self-employed. Jack his dad was, was the same type as mine. Worked hard and you had that in your genes. Being unemployed and staying in bed to lunchtime. Had never been an option, I left school in July. College didn't start until September. I got told what are you doing in August, I replied nothing as they don't want to have you for a month. My dad laughed a good job I hire the labour at Acrow. Get yourself down to the yard for 8 am. When Monday start of the week. No in the morning, don't be late. Getting a belt on the first day at work. Best thing looks bad
I have many friends from Wigan casino
One thing I've never had any difficulty with is talking. I will talk to anybody, knowing them as not been important. I feel comfortable talking to complete strangers. I always have even at 14 I'd hitch a lift never met them before. But talk to them like I knew them. Being forward and full of confidence. As got me into a lot of arguments as well. I started to believe I was always correct. If anybody said I was wrong. I tried to convince them I was right they were wrong. Worked fine for years until I tried it on. With mr Gethro Jones, always one who knows there right , and your wrong.
At times it closes to unwelcome vistors
My personal page will give me the opportunity. To clarify the site content and the sources. Validity saying it is true and it being true. Are separate values. The list of top venues and events. I attended in the Wigan casino era. Runs into hundreds, in the mid 70's 3 events. Almost every weekend 52 weeks of the year. I remember one year Wigan casino. Held a new years eve allnighter. I think they expected members to forget. All go on a drinking session. I had a pint of bitter. When I went in and had most of it left at 8am. Tables full of half drunk glasses across the casino.
There seems to be an ever-increasing list. Of things. 99% of people have no idea about. In almost every instance it's for one simple reason. It's got nothing to do with them. As they don't know me, so give their assumed answer. I know a lot of people on the northern soul scene. But not every person who claims they know me. Those who do know me, know my business is kept private. I have always thought people who discuss my life have nothing. In their own worth talking about a very true statement. My real friends will tell you I won't desert. First sign of a problem they get.
This website is my passion in keeping with the value. Northern soul was never a means to get rich by. Many have tried but are not welcomed. Northern soul can be a very friendly welcoming environment. Which closes it's welcome fast at times. To people not in it for the same reason.
