Just saw an advert on TV for  'Best Northern Soul Album Ever'. I know a Northern Soul revival has been bubbling-under for some time, and now it looks like it's going to be a mainstream 'thing'. It looks like I'm going to be spending the next 18 months tutting to myself and moaning about young people getting it all wrong. I shudder to think what bastardised fashions are going to come out of all this. I might as well order a job-lot of Pepto and blood-pressure tablets in...
