Cringing Cult of Celebrity
  • Whatever happened to the names of some our 'Legendary' Southallians. They have been deleted from this section. Hey! the whole world knows Jim Small, The most famous Amp. builder in the World today and for many years. Johnny Dankworth and his Wife and Vocalist Cleo Laine. And Johnny Haynes, The Best England Soccer team Captain ever, and there were many more. Come on let's hear from you.
  • Well known in Asian circles but 'Alaap' and 'Heera' two world famous British based Punjabi bhangra bands hail from Southall and are still resident there. Pioneers of a British/Punjabi fusion based on Indian folk music catered for the British Asian market and to some extent the mainstream. Unusual for London as this is more at home in the Midlands.
