Where did you grow up?
First in London and then in Derbyshire. In London, punk ruled but further north people listened to northern soul. I loved northern soul and used to go to all-dayers since I was too young to go to clubs.
You know they had the all-nighters at Wigan Casino, that was the place to go. There were a couple of places, Nottingham Palais and Matlock Bath who arranged all-dayers instead. You went there in the morning, listened to music and danced all day.
What type of area did you live in?
We were living in an area called Golden Valley, it had one pub and a couple of houses and it was all very conservative. A friend of mine dyed his hair green one day. When my mother saw him she forced him to wash it with Ajax before his mum would see it.

All Dayer brings together artists and musicians to embrace a commitment to the potential of new belief systems. The origins of Northern Soul came from the independent and lesser known producers of soul music, and this show reflects an independent faith in counter culture and the thresholds of change that music, art and rituals can invoke.
Throughout the exhibition a stage will be set in the centre of the gallery awaiting performance and change.
