Yiddish Northern Soul

So what's the deal with Northern Soul ? It's a musical form for beer bellied old farts who come from the UK. They collect records and pretend that the 1980t's never happened unless it was Chi Town House. I've nothing against beer bellies or the UK and I do have an empathy with people who bury themselves in time capsules. Can't be doing with the music though. Of course in the modern world I listen to retro sounding tracks with a degree of horror when they "Sound like Northern". Few if anyone does it good enough, Shawn Lee yeah maybe?, Cee-Lo Green- yes certainly. Mayer Hawthorne though ?  Fact is most Northern Soul people and old Soulies will probably despise him. Which in my eyes makes him worth it.......
