Welcome to 'martinsbox'.
Over the years we all pick up bits from the All-nighters / Dayers and Soul nights and put them away . . . in the cupboard, loft, parents house . . . you know, the bits you may never see again. They get lost, hidden or even worse thrown away and never seen again.
Well, I've been in my loft and here we are today, 'martinsbox' is an open box for all to see
(I must admit, bits like label listings, humorous items and the like, are hidden behind photos or linked to certain text to save on page sizes . . . see if you can find the 23 or so bits I've added so far). Old photo's, flyers, badges, magazine write-up's, if I've got it, it'll end up on this site!!
Don't expect to see any great work of art from myself, I'm not that good at putting pen to paper, but if it's entertainment you want, in the way of reminiscing carry on, sit back and enjoy what has been compiled so-far . . . . there is always more on the way. And don't forget what's on and about now in the Bedford / Northampton / Cambridgeshire areas in 'Local Events', as well as my 45's for sale.
As most of the write-up's were written at the time of the events, some may be a little biased musically or club-wise by the various people who wrote them, this just shows how it was then !! It is these small, and at times b-i-g conflicts, that make our scene that little more interesting than anything else on offer . . . . . . but hey,
THAT'S JUST NORTHERN SOUL!!
