During the mid 1970s to mid 1980s, the Abercorn nightclub in Belfast city centre was very popular. One of it`s most popular times was a Saturday afternoon, it was always packed, mostly with young people from the Unionist areas of Belfast.

In 1977 a soul group named “The Realistics” appeared there, Granada TV made a documentary bout the group`s week long stay in Belfast.

One of the group`s members in now in his 80s and a video is available online showing him at his 80th birthday.

“The Realistics” had also performed under an alias “The Fantastics.” You can see them below.

A 2 min video clip of the Granada documentary can be seen at this link.

Time really doe fly by so quickly?

James 4:13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
