The first time I heard Alison and the Earthquakes was 9th Oct 2011 at the venue Concorde 2 for the annual Brightona music event in Brighton. After a full day of great live bands they were the last and the best band to play, rocking Concorde 2 with their covers of northern soul classics, Atlantic, and Stax. The 9 band members inspired us to dance with their energy and sheer enjoyment of the music. The superb renditions demanded more than one encore, as we did not want them to stop.
I danced to exhaustion, the next day my back ached with torn muscles, (I really got into the dancing), but I was a happy bunny with memories of the awesome performance and atmosphere. They are truly the most talented northern soul band I have heard. Some band members tell me they are writing their own northern soul songs, eagerly anticipated by me, as they do grasp the true essence of the music.
It was my pleasure to interview them before the Concorde 2 performance and band member Jules makes some interesting comments about the northern soul single “Mercy” by artist Duffy – you can hear that interview on this page.
