Follow Me To The Popcorn – The Untold History of the Belgium Popcorn Scene

JMANLP 085 GATEFOLD DONE

The Untold History of the Belgium Popcorn Scene.

Originating in Belgium at the tail end of the 1960s and into the 70s, Popcorn was a music and dance scene with an emphasis on often obscure black American records of the then recent past. Drawing immediate parallels with the UK’s Northern Soul scene from approximately the same time, young people would flock from all corners of Belgium to cram into a converted farmhouse barn to dance to these exotic sounds. But whilst Northern favoured an often uptempo, stomping 60s soul sound, popcorn focused almost entirely on slower, moodier numbers.

The 2LP gatefold with download card and free sticker also includes never previously published vintage flyers and photographs.
