Rebel Rousers and Luvvers ** Grave Jinglers ** Peter Green Connection 

SPECIAL: DAVE WENDELLS, Rebel Rouser and Luvver
Our story begins with CLIFF BENNETT & THE REBEL ROUSERS. Initially a rock’n’roll band formed in ‘59, they soon developed  into a soul – R&B  band with a fantastic brass section.  The band moved to Hamburg in ’62. Two members preferred to stay home and were replaced by former Savages NICKY HOPKINS and BERNIE WATSON. Another EX-SAVAGE helped them out: guitarist DAVE WENDELLS.

He had only been a SAVAGE for half a year,  from May to October 1962, alongside Carlo Little, Ricky Brown, Andy Wren and Ritchie Blackmore. He stayed with CLIFF BENNETT & THE REBEL ROUSERS till June ’65, long enough to feature on several singles and to enjoy chart success with “ONE WAY LOVE”, reaching no.… Read more...

WHITE BICYCLES: THE JOE BOYD STORY

Bruce Eder in allmusic.com
Boyd co-produced this collection, which touches on some of the key points of his career from several angles — Pink Floyd‘s debut single, the recording of which got Boyd squeezed out of the business end of their success and off of their subsequent records, even though it was a hit; his venture into jug band music with the Purple Gang‘s “Granny Takes a Trip”; and the debut single by Fairport Convention, “If I Had a Ribbon Bow,” to demonstrate how he and the band accommodated each other’s differing approaches to music.… Read more...

BLOW-UP

“I won’t dwell too much on the film itself other than to say that it’s a seriously groovy piece of mid-sixties filmic psychodrama set in swinging London that, amidst other things, features one or two of the beautiful people, some shots of delightfully quaint mews dwelling houses, and the quite wonderful (in real life too) Marion Park an expanse of green nearby the military barracks in Woolwich Arsenal and wherein the flick’s plot really begins to thicken.… Read more...

DOZY  Trevor “Dozy”  Ward Davies died at the age of 70 on 13 January, after a short and sudden illness.  Bass-player Ward-Davies was a  founder of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick ad Tich, who had a huge string of hits between 1966 and 1968, with simple pop tunes that you must sing or dance to. They were dressed like the very best in genuine Carnaby Street style. Though they dressed like Mods, they didn’t appeal to that group, nor id they do any real Mod music.… Read more...

My Generation: new schedule, new show

My Gen

My Generation means four solid hours of sixties.

These are the main changes:
(1) My Generation no longer incorporates ‘Free Speech’ (which is a separate show on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays).
(2) On Sundays, broadcasting is non-stop from 12 noon till 4 in the morning on Monday =  more comfortable for our listeners on the American continent;
(3) Blueside is now linked to the sounds of the sixties;
(4) In each show, you will hear all types of sixties Word, like poetry and speeches.

 
See right bar on the site and the Shows and Schedule sections in the top bar of the site for details.

THE IDLE RACE, THE MOVE

Idle Race cover

Before joining The Move and finding world-wide fame with ELO, Jeff Lynne played in a band called The Idle Race. As a result of Lynne’s input in terms of singing and song-writing, The Idle Race sound very much like an early version of ELO. They also recorded a song written by Roy Wood of The Move, but withdrew it as a single when The Move released their own version (Here We Go, ‘Round the Lemon Tree).  As it a happens, Lynn and Move had both been in Mike Sheridan and The Nightriders, though not at the same time…
From Wikipedia:
“While Mike Sheridan and The Nightriders failed to crack the charts, the band’s line-up during this period included a young lead guitarist and composer named Roy Wood whose first commercial song “Make Them Understand,” appeared on one of the band’s B-sides in 1965.… Read more...
