function at the junction : a northern soul short film


it’s been a week (and more!) of northern soul brilliance at ireallylovemusic hq.

which given i am a genre neophyte means i have to rely on easily available compilations as opposed to tracking down the original 7” as that would be just insane.

wouldn’t it ?

thankfully, i have a complete set of the $tateside talcum soul compilations, the after hours 3cd set, and a few others to keep my soundsystem in the groove for a while.

anyway, a friend lent me her dvd copy of this weekend, and it put a massive smile on my hungover face, so i call that a result.

then i found it online and so now you too can rejoice in the brilliance.

there are so many standout parts :

the dj (paul kaye), the doorman, the speedfreak, the dancing, and of the course, the music.

one of the most wonderful genres of music ever.

just sit back and enjoy.
