Excerpt from an MDMArchive interview with Richard Searling, 2004.
"One of the leading lights of the Northern Soul movement, Richard initially made his name at Va-Va's in Bolton, where he gained major kudos for unearthing one of the scene's defining tracks, 'Tainted Love' by Gloria Jones (subsequently to become a multi-million selling cover version by Soft Cell). Forming one of the most famous DJ partnerships of all, when he hooked up with Russ Winstanley at Wigan Casino, Richard is a Soul aficionado of the highest order."
