'Is that what they used to call a 'mini-pull'?' (Quote)

 

Yep, or a 'mini-shetland'. Already short on this picture, but later exaggerated to the point that you could see the belly button (girls and boys !).

I can understand your reasoning there but the photo is from a BBC site http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/threecounties/hi/people_and_places/newsid_8330000/8330554.stm so perhaps it is genuine , Luuk. .

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! biggrin.gif

As you say Inspector,it was worn by both some years later in that way,but also with an exaggerated Rib - between 6-12".Commonly referred to as
"Mini Jumpers".

It's hardly a primary resource but I seem to remember in Alan Fletcher's novelisation of Quadrophenia he has Jimmy say something along similar lines, that he went off the Animals cos they came on stage posing on motorcycles or something. The value of these recollections of cast iron Mod credentials imposed on Jimmy is somewhat tainted when he goes on to write about him playing 'Concrete and Clay' by Unit Four Plus Two on his record player.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit I like that tune, I always found it to be one of these songs that if you heard it on the radio in the morning, it would rattle around ones head for the rest of the day. Very catchy. .

Eric Burdon and the Animals were mods when they sang 'Hold on' on Ready Steady Go. Otis Redding introduced them, no less.

Chas Chandler, bass player in The Animals 'discovered' Jimi Hendrix and encouraged his career. Then went on to be producer of most of Slade's golden era.
I believe Burdon and Price hate eachother cos somehow Price finangled a 'trad. arr.' writing credit for House of the Rising Son so he gets an extra check whenever it's used!

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.

So what were they when they supported Jerry Lee Lewis on TV then? biggrin.gif

Hear Eric Burdon singing "Jerry gonna be rockin'" in this version of Chuck Berry's 'Around And Around'.

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! frown.gif

... but we won't talk about that. biggrin.gif


I actually saw Hendrix live, twice, both times in Blackpool, one of which gigs was the legendary tour where he was on the same bill as Englebert Humperdink. Neither of these gigs was one you would miss going to, whether you were a mod, a rocker, a hippie, or whatever. It was just such an occasion when a bill like that came round to your town. The tour that included Hump also included Cat Stevens. The second tour included The Nice (went on to be prog rockers ELP), The Move, and Pink Floyd. Like I said, it might not have been 'your' kind of music, but you didn't miss either gig.

Sorry, I couldn't resist slipping this in as a tribute to someone on our forum who looks just like a model on the cover of a magazine. biggrin.gif

Good grief, that actually is modern jazz giant Dave Brubeck pretending to play the joanna on this clip!




Though of course our friend takes her name from the Bill Black version, I think - a Northern Soul classic.
