Shake Your Head

Those of you who attended SOULCIALISM last Friday night at the White Eagle understand the true meaning of "underground soul". Packed, hot, sweaty and steamy, a bathroom flooded by rainwater and a dancefloor besotten with the loaded and ecstatic!

In other words, THANKS - to our dancing friends, our special guest DJs (Des, Johnny, and Kris), and most importantly to Soccer John for fixing the freakin' P.A. system while I decided to simply retreat into a bottle...

Here are a few new favorites you heard Friday from our guests and residents - watch for some of 'em on a new SOULCIALISM CD to be handed out at our JUNE 23 gig!

Barbra Carr - Shake Your Head - dance floor mind-destroyer
King Errison - Zola - Des Parker gets the most drunks asking "Who IS this?" in Soulcialism history
Saxie Russell - Psychedelic Soul - Johnny Beggs' classic reborn in the Burgh
Esquires - Think - storming funk instrumental version of the Lyn Collins classic
Chris Clark - Love's Gone Bad - just you wait...
Bart Jackson - Dancing Man - for all the hipper-than-thou non-dancing dudes at the bar

See ya next time - juddy
