Here`s a Novelty for you. Visited a Military Modelling/Wargames Exhibition in Newark(Partizan 2015) , I have an interest in the Subject.Walking around the Halls I came across a Game being set up known as "Aggro".I went back later and the Game was in progress.You get either 2 or 4 Players playing,in which they control Gangs of Skinheads(yes they were painted up as them - Boots,Braces,Cropped Hair and some with Trilbies).The Game takes place in and around a Football...
I saw Geno quite a few times,performing in Clubs,in the 60s.I only saw Jimmy James a couple of times.The Ram Jam in Brixton did have Soul Artists etc., appearing but the Dj Playlists were going more to Jamaican as the main Dance Music(1968)

Never heard the "Futurist" Label -seems to be People who were ahead of the Game(even more so than Faces).
Listening to the Podcast now.Saw the Pretty Things in the Marquee,around `66.Good Live Band. Whoops doubled up
