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…
