Hi Jan...yes I did go to the Dungeon, not sure if we ever met back then...I do remember Stu Morris but only knew him by sight..not an easy guy to miss!!!

Will have to give Friday a miss as I'm working nights until 6am Sunday morning...I'm thinking of going back to see the mod crop exhibition on Easter Monday as I forgot to take my camera last time and I want to get some pictures before it closes.

Funny you should mention that as I was reading about Quadrophenia The stage show in my scootering mag just the other day...the show closely follows the original concept ie the Quadrophenia album and not the film and from the write up in the mag sounds pretty good, so I hope to go to see it..any idea of when its coming to Nottingham hippo girl?

Just been into Royal Centre website to book Mod Crop tickets (not in UK at the moment) and seen the following that may be of interest.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of one of the most-loved and popular genres of music ever, and now in its 6th successive year, How Sweet It Is is a slick, high-energy recreation of music from the 60s and 70s. Featuring classics from two of Motown's finest vocal groups, The Four Tops and The Temptations - along with hit after hit from other famous artists including Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie wonder - the concert is 100% live, and 100% Motown memorable!

An exhilarating theatrical experience for rebels and adolescents of all ages!

Hi Bazzer..yes it was very good..really enjoyed it....was only on until 13th June so you have missed it..Alan Fletcher did say that it may go on the road will ask him if thats going to happen also I'm sure he said it would be recorded for DVD so will ask about that too.

Hi Mate!

Hey there Pete!

Long time no speak!

Anyway, the thing is, I was in my local record shop and they had this neat little CD package With a pop-up Wigan casino inside! AND you can lift the roof off and see inside! The records are good too, although you'll probably have most of them.

If you are interested it's

Wigan Casino Soul Club

30 years of Northern Soul Memories 1973-2003

The label is Fabulous and its FBUBX101

Hope everything is good with you,

Charles

There has been a recent season of the Mod Crop production (ending tonight) at The Lace Market Theatre. Would love to have seen it but unfortunately it sold out very quickly. I understand for a play to be so incredibly popular is rare at the theatre. I'm told it's next going to London.
