Street People we’re certainly known to an American audience, having made the R&B charts with their releases on the Vigor label. But their reach to a European, let alone Swedish market, is highly conjectural. None of their material received any European releases at the time. They we’re however billed as band from Detroit playing the ‘Explosive Philadelphian Soul Sound.’ A city and label with through Philadelphian International Records were scoring hit after international hit with artists such as The Stylistic, The O’Jays, Harold Melvin, Billy Paul, Three Degrees and Teddy Pendergrass.

The irony here is that they were not actually from Detroit, the home of Motown, instead hailing for New Jersey. A fact they could doubtless get away with in a distant market such as Sweden and a world before the internet. They could also probably get booked for a fee much lower than any of the Motown or Philly Artists would have charged.

The gig demonstrates the enduring interest Gothenburg had in American Soul music. In the 60’s celebrated local DJ’s such as Clem Dalton had their name by playing hard to find Stax and Motown releases and Soul nights such as The G Club had been fixture of Gothenburg night life from the late 1960’s. A tradition continued more recently by clubs such as On The Real Side, Gothenburg’s first Northern Soul night, and Soulastatic.

1789

A club which could have taken it name from the year of the French Revolution, was initially housed in the same venue as The Globe club and The Joker, venues which were in many ways inter-changeable in terms of programming and audiences. After the venue was demolished as part of the re-development of Östra Nordstaden, it moved to a venue reasonably close in Norstadtorget, where the Hotell Atlantic was situated. But by the late 1970’s, with the whole areas ear-marked for complete demolition, saw it’s door finally close.
