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…
