*DJ Richard Searling called Northern Soul "deep soul with a dance beat"
There are fewer strings, fewer shimmering harmonies in Northern Soul. But the most important thing is it is dance music. It is fast and furious.He wanted to find tracks that had flopped or never been released but which, according to the aesthetic of Northern Soul, were masterpieces ....and so Northern Soul was born.
As a lover of Northern Soul music I was happy to do a review post for 45Revs.com who describe themselves as - The home of the 45Revs brand. High quality Northern Soul and Mod clothing and apparel.
They sent me out a selection of items.
Excuse my madness but have tied each item in with a song.
Firstly a Keep the Faith fur pom pom chunky beanie. 100% Soft-Spun Acrylic, Sumptuous heavy ribbed knit Luxury removable faux fur pom pom for ease of washing.It really is soft and fluffy and very nice to wear.
I have tied this in with Major Lance (get my hat) nothing can stop me
Secondly I was sent a shirt from the men's range, in my book does not have to mean it is a men's shirt. I as a taller woman often prefer clothing designed for me as they are a better length and cover more of my lumps and bumps. I like these items on top of a vest type shirt or a round neck t-shirt, they add an extra layer without adding to much warmth for the warmer weather. It is a very nice shirt, well finished and soft to the touch.
Women Fit Classic MA1 Flight Bomber Pilot Jacket – Security Military Combat Biker. Zip up MA1 Pilot Jacket. Two side pockets with studed flap over. Two pockets on left arm. Ribbed collar, cuffs and waistband.
This is a great light weight jacket that Fifi loves and will get a lot of wear out of.
This sums up Fifi - a woman in motion
Final item in my package was
There clothes are all well made, nicely finished and reasonably prices so well worth you having a look.
