A music and dance movement that emerged and prospered during the 1960s and 70s in working class areas of the North, Northern Soul grew out of the underground rhythm and soul scene. Largely overlooked by the mainstream media the movement centred on its followers.
The figurehead was the people - the kids who made the weekly
pilgrimage to the clubs, the ones who had the best moves, the
ones with the sharpest dress sense. It was all about looking
good on the dance floor.
