Northern Soul Podcasts



















Northern Soul collector Jon Clay came to the Hangover Lounge recently armed with a box of 45s and played a few storming sets. Yes, he really did have You've Been Leading Me On by The Steinways on 7" (me: "Nice"; Jon: "Yeah, I had an argument with my girlfriend so I stormed off and shelled out £160 for The Steinways"; me:"That'll learn her"; Jon: "If I'd paid for it using her money, maybe, but I didn't"; me:"Oh").

You can download the podcasts here. And you can come to the Hangover Lounge every Sunday from 1-7pm at the Salmon and Compass, Chapel Market, Islington to hear the perfect music to calm your minds after a hard Saturday night's drinking, and stave off the dread of the week ahead.
