From my mid 1970s to my late early 1980s teens on the London west end club circuit, there was one dancer that people used to talk about as someone who was pure dance poetry in motion.
I never saw him in his hey day but I ended up living on the same road as him circa 1994 in Forest Gate East London. The folk law legend as he was previously to me Trevor Shake, I found to be a humble guy who was generous in sharing music and his experiences with me. When I started The Soul Survivors Magazine’s interview features I wanted to document his journey. 12 years later after much deliberation Trevor agreed to speak with me.

Greetings fellow soul survivors and welcome to today’s Friday Fitztory. It felt so poignant to share this today with all that is happening and escalating in Minneapolis Minnesota USA with the brutal racist murder of George Floyd. Both Prince and Sound Of Blackness are a big part of the twin city Minneapolis musical and community fabric. Recorded and published 4 years ago in 2016, look at how providential this conversation extract is in relevance of the present moment with the Black Lives Matter movement which as an African Diaspora man, the cause is important, between myself and Gary Hines of SOB.
