True Originals And Instigators (Jan Kincaid - Diana Brown and the brothers and the Brand New Heavies)

I remember Jay Strongman was playing "Think" by Lyn Collins, it must have been only the second or third time we had heard it, the hardness of the groove drove us wild. Suddenly, as if on cue, in strolled Barrie with Lascelle’s cousin, Garry Russell, they both started seriously getting down on the dance floor. They made a strong impression on us, wide eyed youngsters, the passion and confidence in their dancing and the way they dressed; they were both wearing blue blazers, John Smedleys, dark cropped Levi’s and Bass Weejuns penny loafers, with no socks. It was the best advert for a club I had ever seen; when they later approached us with a flyer for The Cat in the Hat club, we knew there was no way that we were not going to go to this event.
