I addressed a very well turned out, elderly gentleman at our Remembrance Sunday/Armistice Day event, last month as "Sir' (more out of respect for his years, as opposed to whatever rank he once held), and he was most agitated.

His response: 'I'm not a 'sir' - I worked for a living, laddie!!!'

I liked that. satisfied.gif

I guess he took offense because that is usually what people are addressed as if they have been Knighted?

Nah, it's a British military thing, where the officers were traditionally 'gentlemen'.

This particular old boy was, in fact, a retired WO2... meaning he should/could/would be addressed as 'sir'.

I think he was just being cantankerous - and that's fine. satisfied.gif

This seems like a good place to ask.

 

I am going to be in NYC for more than half of December. (8th-24th). Ive spent most of this year digging into Northern Soul sounds, but in San Francisco there isn't really much in the way of a "soul night" anywhere except the once a month Tuesday night at Edinburgh Castle...

 

Anyone know of any (Northern) Soul nights currently happening in NY? I was scanning this thread and saw some mentions of Subway Soul (http://www.subwaysoul.com/drupal/drupal-5.7/index.php) which appeared to be just what I am looking for but is now sadly defunct.

 

Any tips/links would be appreciated! Thanks!

Alright Storage. I went to the Edinburgh Castle do earlier this year - bit small but not bad. Was a big fight at the end. Trouble making skinheads - he hee.
Was also at Subway Soul last year. Had a great night but it was in a wharehouse loft, with a lumpy dancefloor, makeshift bar and in a pretty bad area. And that was the best Soul Night in NYC. Not that surprised it didn't last.
Sorry can't recommend anything better but would start by looking on Soul Source, in their events bit
http://www.soul-source.co.uk/soulforum/calendar/
or email them for some contacts.

Jeff Dexter The first bunch of skins, although they didn't get that name until later, emerged 61-62, smart modernist boys with menial jobs, who wanted their own identity while working. They wore Dr Martens from the off, and they originally tried to emulate the US casuals. No one at that time would have worn Wranglers, Stay Press hadn't been invented, nor a Ben Sherman. They had no knowledge of Rodney Harrington either, as he didn't emerge on our screens until 1967.

Thanks for the link. Ill spend some time on the site tomorrow, see if I can sniff something out.

 

2-3 years ago I could have driven the 40 miles to SF for an 11pm Edinburgh do. These days its just not possible. Got to be up to early. Your description of "bit small" jives with the only other review I got from a friend who complained that its "always the same six people playing the same records to eachother"... though I would still like to check it out for myself.

 

Cheers.

The first Dr.Martens came out in 1960.They were worn by Postal Workers,Policemen and Factory Workers-so the link to "Menial Jobs?".Ben Shermans started in 1963,first real Oulet was in London,in 1965.Harrington Jackets(or a Style similar to it)were worn by Mods in `64.On RsG,there is a Mod dancing with one on(A picture was shown on here).

NYC doesnt seem to have much going on anymore. Otto's Shrunken Head bar in lower east side has a "skinhead night" every thursdays, but it's mostly reggae/ska, not soul.
