The Rock-itt : March 2012
It’s 1966 and England was now the Pop capital of the m usic industry and entertainers of the previous generation as before when Elvis hit the scene were tossed aside by the new generation of pop worshippers, as the British wave washed over the world like a gigantic tsunami. It wasn’t just the previous generation of entertainers who felt the brunt of the new Mersey sound, believe it or not, Barber shops began to close the doors as the new generation began growing their locks and hair dressing boutiques for both men and wom en began opening their doors to this new fashion explosion. As the fashion evolved and the unbelievable style of the sixties with high buttoned collars elasticised boots, three quarter length coats, all different crazy coloured dresses, and suits, began to take off, leaving the more conventional clothing shops foundering in their wake. We will showcase som e of the great artists as well as fashion of the swinging sixties next month, until we do, see you then and remember... Please, Please, Me Oh Yeah!....By not drink driving.....Cheers Pete. The American record companies, however were a tough industry to crack and were used to calling the shots, so Epstein went over on a reconnaissance mission to suss out what he needed to do to get the Beatles recognition similar to that that they were getting back home in England. But even though The Beatles were and still are considered the greatest of this era, there were a whole generation of British bands that were remarkably talented. I think it only fair that at this point in time we put the fab four on the back burner for a while and look at others who were also taking the Pop world by storm, we’ll come back to the Beatles later. The Rolling Stones, Jerry and the Pacemakers, The Who, The Yardbirds, The Animals, Herm an’s Hermits, Manfred Mann, Spencer Davis Group, Cilla Black, Marianne Faithful, Sandy Shaw, Dusty Springfield. I could sit here typing in the names of these absolutely fabulous entertainers from this era til the cows came home and still not find an end to them all as there were just so many and they wrote and created so m uch fabulous music.
