We’re back once again with the… errr… ex-local journo.

The pie at night crew have taken to the pubs again, microphone and Jimmy’s menu in hand. This time, we’re back in Wigan Central and Jimmy, Alan, Chris and Ian are joined by Greg Farrimond, ahead of his move “darn sarf” and spend a couple of hours talking about the usual sort of stuff.

It’s the festival that brought you Davros (and his Deep Space Deviants) well before they were a twinkle in Simon Cowell’s scowl. The festival that, for the last two years has taken the best of Wigan music for a two day cavalcade of fun in the lakes and it’s back for 2016.

Ever have them dreams where you were born in another era? Or are maybe transported back there like Marty McFly in Back To The Future?

I have a couple; in one I’m born in 1960 so that I’m just hitting my formative years as a late teenager at the height of punk. I’m at THAT Sex Pistols gig at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester and end up going on to have a successful musical career as a member of Joy Division and then New Order.

It’s not the Mudhuts podcast, but it’s all we’ve got. Pie at Night? Pile at Night? Pilot Night? Pilot Light? Pile of S***e?

We don’t know what it is but it’s safe to say there has been a void in our lives in the 8 years since the Mudhuts podcast last hit the streets. There’s strong rumours that it may return soon but here at This Northern Soul we thought it was about time that we jumped back in ourselves with a brand new podcast covering the world of football, music and anything else that takes our fancy.

Jukebox Juror – “There’s been an awakening”

The following article first appeared in the January 2016 issue of the Mudhuts Football Express.  

There was a time where I wasn’t “into” music.  That’s not to say I didn’t like music, but with a record collection that mainly consisted of the second two Adam and the Ants LPs, Wham! Fantastic! and a couple of records pilfered from my parents cupboard (The Beatles Red Album and Motown Chartbusters vol 4) bolstered by tapes painstakingly recorded from the top forty rundown on a Sunday tea time I could hardly call myself an aficionado. 

Then came 1986 when someone handed me a tape that changed my (musical) life.

Left Foot, Right Foot, Header #23 – Black Country Boys

It’s been a while, but I’m back and as usual I’ve got some YouTube clips, tenuous links and a bit of a topical theme for you.  Rather than just ramble on for you a bit, I’ve done some proper research this week and found you three artists with a connection to Latics’ opponents today.  In so much that they are from Walsall, and yes, that sort of research is dead easy these days, but the hard bit comes when you try and string them together into an article.
