Wigan casino allnighter.
1974 at Wigan casino allnighter, was still very Torch influnced. Listen to the allnighter live in 1974. To hear the records to verify the Torch records getting a geat reception from the casino dance floor. At the time the UK northern soul scene. Was still a very exclusive place word of mouth was the only advertising. Needed to attract crowds to club's staging allnighters. The Catacomb's had recently closed in July 1974. There had been around 3 times the fire safety number of 600. At the last Catacomb's event, something that happened then that can't now. With the Catacomb's closing it left Wigan casino as the only regular allnighter open.
There was still a big input from Blackpool mecca. But it was'nt a allnighter, Ian Levine was a dj at Wigan casino's start. Later left the casino's dj line up over musical differences. That's as much as I know. To me Ian recieved a torrent of totally unfair abuse. If you ttended the casino enjoy the memory. Be lucky or be careful Sam
