Northern Soul - not just good taste in music.

 Britain's Northern Soul music scene exploded with the first "all-nighter" at the Wigan Casino nightclub in September 1973. 

*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. 



The Keep The Faith Embroidered Button Down Collar Short Sleeve Shirt is a 100% Heavyweight Cotton Short Sleeve Checked Shirt. Button Down Collar. Red Taped Neck. Back Yoke with Side Pleats and Hanging Loop. Left Chest Pocket. Double Folded Seems. Curved Hem

Scuse the link this time - Chubby Check(er) for the checked shirt.

Thirdly I got sent a Keep The Faith Embroidered Women’s fit Light Weight MA1 Flight Bomber Jacket. 
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 

45REVS Men’s Stretch Cotton Northern Soul Boxer Shorts

These are described as 
Exclusive to 45REVS, Black and Grey Trunk Fit Stretch Boxer Shorts, 95% Cotton, 5% Elastane.The 45REVS Northern Soul, Keep The Faith trunks have a body defining fit with a contour pouch for a snug and comfortable fit.Modelled on the World’s favourite boxer trunks with quality to match. 
They are a very nice shape and fit well when on. For those that like to expose the waistband of their pants these do their own advertising. 



Our final song is 

Wayne Anthony - you ain't wrapped to tight - rather appropriate 


There clothes are all well made, nicely finished and reasonably prices so well worth you having a look.
