How John Newman's Mom Crafted the Soul Singer's Signature Sound - fuse.tv

How John Newman's Mom Crafted the Soul Singer's Signature Sound - fuse.tv | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

"My mom's a huge northern soul fan," the "Love Me Again" singer explains. "What northern soul is, in the UK, it can only be explained as a rave scene almost—a scene of people that were going to these events and dancing to b-sides of Motown music. That led my mom to listening to a lot of Motown. With myself, getting up for school everyday and getting played that, it was like, 'Oh, it's my mom's music' and I denied that I liked it almost because it wasn't cool in front of my friends who listened to house music."

1965 was the year Motown exploded into the consciousness of the American people. The label had seen hits but now they could be viewed – as Berry Gordy intended – as a succession of hits leaving one central assembly line.

Film director Franc Roddam at home in Notting Hill Gate, London - Demotix.com

Film director Franc Roddam at home in Notting Hill Gate, London - Demotix.com | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

WOLFF: In 1979 you directed your first feature film QUADROPHENIA based on the Who's rock opera. This a favourite film with a number of people. It broke new ground. It has a realistic feel but is a fictional story, though based on real events. The audience may be forgiven for feeling they are a member of the Mod gang just outside the frame, how did you achieve this effect?

RODDAM: I could write a book on this one!  But this was achieved by having a core group of 100 young actors – 8 of them who became the main cast, 20 of them who became ‘special extras’ and the rest extras. By training them and introducing them all to each other, they took on an authenticity that transmitted to the viewer. I also used wide angle lenses, so that the foreground, middle ground and background were all in focus.  This meant that even the extras had to know their place amongst the group and their status with each other. The middle ground had to be interesting, and the foreground had to be strong. All the camera movements are motivated by the action.

Don’t Cry Etta James … Don’t Cry, Baby!

Don’t Cry Etta James … Don’t Cry, Baby! | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

She was born Jamesetta Hawkins. By age five she was known as a gospel prodigy; at the time of her death she’d mastered R&B, jazz, blues, and rock. As she began her professional singing career the name Jamesetta was inverted to Etta James. One of her early hits that soared to number two on the R&B charts – “All I Could Do Was Cry” – was co-written by Motown founder Berry Gordy before there was Motown. Chess Records producer Ralph Bass remembered about the recording session:


“One take and Etta was crying her eyes out for real. The band wanted her to do it over. I told them ‘Forget it’…how much more soul could I get from a singer?”
