Having said which, 'Around And Around' was one of the Stones' numbers I really liked. The mid 60s mod mates of the lad next door, when I lived in Blackpool, used to by Chuck Berry records because they were on the PYE R&B label, along with stuff by Willie Dixon and Muddy Waters. I remember I enjoyed the Stones' first two albums, because it seemed a 'new' thing to hear a British band doing so much R&B. But then they went all 'Lady Jane' on my ass!
So what were they when they supported Jerry Lee Lewis on TV then? Hear Eric Burdon singing "Jerry gonna be rockin'" in this version of Chuck Berry's 'Around And Around'.
Actually 'The Concrete and the Clay' was a pretty good disk. The truth is that back in the 60s we all listened to whatever pop music was on the radio, and a lot of the stuff by British 'beat groups' was good.Until they went all 'Simon Smith and his Amazing Dancing Bear' / 'Waterloo Sunset' / 'My name is Jack' on our asses.
If I had a pair.
While I'm on about T K Maximus, it's always an idea to spend ten minutes whizzing round your local store. You never know what's going to be in. On the day when I didn't buy the Racing Green jacket, I spotted this Ben Sherman Heritage shirt going cheap. Three-finger collar, and as close in design to what I would have worn in '69 as you're going to get. I know I had promised not to buy any more check shirts - only plain ones from now on - since I bought a PoW suit (and a...
Under normal circumstances I would not go out and spend £260-£300 on a two-button Brook Taverner jacket. I've nothing against two-button jackets, except the modern fetish for bum-freezer suits that look two sizes too small. I prefer three-button, but if a two-button jacket fits well, is of a respectable length, and looks good, then it's okay by me. The other day I was in T K Maxx, trying on a really nice dark olive, two-button tweed jacket by Racing Green. It was knocked...
Two clues. Firstly the car reg is 1973-74, secondly the scooter has no front numberplate, and they were abolished in 1975. The pic might be a few years later than that, as neither vehicle is necessarily brand new; so I would say that these guys are the immediately post-punk mod/skinhead revival.The bloke on the left actually looks like one of the late 70s 'raincoat rocker' (Joy Division etc.) fans.
It was.The first white socks I ever saw worn with black loafers were on the feet of Al Jardine. Don't think he was from Essex.
A propos nothing at all, I thought I would slip in a pic from last year. I'm not a bonny model, and I'm not standing well, so the jacket and strides aren't shown off to their best, but this is myself and Miss Mystery at her graduation, summer 2014. The loafers are a gash pair from Marks & Sparks, the strides an equally gash pair of Sta-Prest from God-knows-where. The shirt is a white Oxford. The jacket is a 'moleskin' by Pakeman Catto & Carter, a firm that has its...
I can remember seeing one of the shortened ones. The guy was wearing it over coloured shirt, though, I'm glad to say.Ils sont fous, ces français!
