WIRESHAKER-UFO Tales

   UFO Tales
“The sixties began in the summer of 1956, ended in October of 1973 and peaked just before dawn on 1 July, 1967 at the UFO club in London”
Joe Boyd -White Bicycles
Established by expatriate New Englander Boyd and counter-culture catalyst John “Hoppy” Hopkins, in The Blarney Club, an Irish ballroom at 31 Tottenham Court Road, UFO (the name stood for Unlimited Freak Out, had nothing to do with flying saucers and was always pronounced you-foe) first opened its doors just before Christmas 1966.
For a ten-bob entry fee, you could commune with fellow freaks from 10 in the evening until 8 the following morning watching Marx Brothers movies, being dazzled by light-shows, playing “spot the fuzz” and scoring some of the best LSD this side of San Francisco.
Oh, and there was music, lots of music and everybody featured below provided it at one time or another.
Of course things couldn’t last. It didn’t take long for The News Of The World to start sniffing around. On the first Sunday of July the front page carried a picture a topless girl who the paper claimed to be 15 under the headline “Hippie Vice Den!”. It was an inexorable descent from there on……

ALL THAT JAZZ (#5)

Dusk had swept in bringing a hush in the air, separating the day folk dragging themselves home from work and the night people arriving at Birdland. Thunder stumbled around in the twilight. He looked out of his hotel window into the fog of darkness focussing on the few drops of rain splattered on the window. He  poured a drink, stuck a stack of records on the turntable, starred at the silent phone and drifted back to the window……

BOB, BOB, BOBBING ALONG.


Call him Bobby, call him Zimmy, call him what you damn well please; the boy from the north country, the ghost in the basement, rock & roll’s true eminence grise has generated more covers, tributes, parodies, piss-takes and impersonations than any other performer.
Here’s a tiny handful.

WIRESHAKER-
Make Do And Mend In A Prefab World.


From the recent 50’s & 60’s stateside ‘Twistin’ extravaganza, we continue with one of our favourite themes, ‘Youth Culture’, more Rockin’ & Rollin’ to a British beat! (& a great follow up to the 2i’s mix, Dec-2016). This time brought to you by WIRESHAKER……

Nik Cohn, Awopbop-Alopbop-Alopbam-Boom:
“British pop in the fifties was pure farce.
Nobody could sing and nobody could write, and in any case, nobody gave a damn.The industry survived in a state of perpetual self-hyped hysteria, screaming itself hoarse about nothing in particular. There was much assorted greed, schnidery and lunacy. Trousers dropped like ninepins.”
Well, if he wasn’t completely wrong, neither was he entirely right. The case for the defence opens here…
