With the influx of blue-eyed soul coming out of the UK in the past decade (from Winehouse to Duffy to our lady Alice Russell), one has to question where these deep, obviously soul-influenced voices came from. Hint: watch this video to see what their parents were doing in the mid-seventies. This is a trailer for the soon-to-be-released movie, Souled Out (aka Soulboy), and it’s about UK’s Northern Soul scene and the famous Wigan Casino dance club. After the jump, check out a vintage video of the real thing: dancing at the Wigan Casino crica 1975.

    I grew up in Northern England and remember how the movement even influenced daily fashion. I was too young to go to the Casino but owned a pair of baggy flared trousers-priceless!

    Love Northern Soul and can’t wait for Souled Out.

  • Rousby

    There’s a funny bit about Northern Soul in the movie Saving Grace (circa 2000). That was a good movie, but this one looks excellent.
