Return of Northern Soul

Ein Artikel in der Times vom 27. August 2008

Next month it will be 35 years since Russ Winstanley booked Wigan Casino for its first Northern Soul all-nighter, starting at 2am on a Sunday morning. The faithful paid 75p each to dance until 8am to rare black American records - and though the price has gone up a bit, the scene is now bigger than ever.

It was Wigan Casino that partially influenced Robert Stigwood to make the film Saturday Night Fever, and household names from Peter Stringfellow to Mick Hucknall were inspired by the Northern Soul scene. When ITV showed a documentary on the Casino for its This England strand in 1977, it reached an audience of 27 million and the reverberations are still being felt.
