“An impressively researched endeavour to give London’s fashion its due, this book–which accompanies an exhibit at the Museum of London–demonstrates the city’s “”distinctive character”” through clothes and asserts that London stands apart from other fashion epicentres like Paris, Milan and New York City. The authors work in tandem to illuminate London’s rich sartorial history, each taking on a section of the book (Breward the 1800s, Ehrman the first half of the 19th century and Evans the latter half). Each examines the iconic trends that prevailed during these periods, from the tailored finery of Saville Row to the subversive theatricality of Carnaby Street, and through personas as diverse as Oscar Wilde, Twiggy and David Bowie. The authors also offer expansive, erudite commentary on London’s social, political and cultural currents, providing a lens through which to view the city’s protean identity. London’s marked ethnic and class diversity both find expression in the clothes; take, for instance, a lavishly beaded and embroidered silk evening dress made by Louise Winter in 1893 or a hand-woven cotton creation with a clear Thai influence, fashioned by Wendy Dagworthy in 1982. Style-setters over the centuries have seized upon London’s lively culture as a dramatic backdrop for avant-garde costumes, as it were–exaggerated, idiosyncratic and even satirical threads that amplify the city’s current cultural mood. This volume’s sumptuous photographs and sketches showcase the pageantry and playfulness of various styles, as well as the assertions of elegance and the streaks of subversion woven through the texture, color, fabric and silhouette of each garment”  SOURCE:  ** THE BOOK Christopher Breward, Author, Edwina Ehrman, Author, Caroline Evans, Author Yale University Press  (180p) ISBN 978-0-300-10399-1 ** THE CD: Castle Music.


“Muziek Parade. Op onderstaande reportage uit de Muziek Parade van febr 1966 over het bekende TV progamma “Moef Ga! Ga!” geregisseerd en geproduceerd door Bob Rooyens ziet men op de foto’s een foto van een zeer jonge Armand nog maar net 20 jaar oud met tegen zijn rug aangeleund een Beatmeisje en daarnaast de bekende Engelse zanger Adam Faith met ook een beatmeisje aan zijn zijde. Adam Faith had in die tijd een zeer goede begeleidingsgroep THE ROULETTES waar ook Chris Andrews wel eens meezong en het bekendste lid van die band was “Russ Ballard”. Een meesterlijke Beat LP uit 1965 is de live LP van ADAM FAITH & THE ROULETTES “FAITH ALIVE!” (COLUMBIA PMC 1249 MONO) opgenomen met een paar honderd gillende tieners in E.M.I Studio’s, St. John Woods , London N.W. 8 op zondag 25 april 1965. Op diezelfde locatie nam in febr. 1959 Cliff Richard met zijn Drifters zijn 1e LP op ook met honderden gillende meiden n.l. “CLIFF First and live”. Cliff Richard was een goede vriend van Adam Faith en trad met hem ook live op in verschillende Engelse TV progamma’s. Adam Faith trouwde later met Cliff zijn ex-vriendin, de danseres Jackie Irving. De begeleidingsgroep van Adam Faith The Roulettes hadden ook een hitje op Radio London met het nummer “The Long Cigarette” en maakten ook een zeer mooie en zeldzame solo LP.  Bob Rooyens heeft dus werkelijk heel wat uniek talent gefilmd in “Moef Ga Ga” en dit progammaliep zeker door tot 1968. Veel gedraaid op Veronica in die tijd was het nummer van Adam Faith “It’s allright”, ook gecoverd door de Ned groep The Torero’s met Karin Kent”. BRON: http://www.bluesharmonica


“Blues-influenced hard rockers the Red Devils were formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 1988. The band consisted of Lester Butler (d. 1998; vocals, harp), Jonny Ray Bartel (bass) and Bill Bateman (drums) among others, although only these three were in the 90s line-up which also featured Paul Size (lead guitar) and Dave Lee Bartel (rhythm guitar). They emerged from an informal jam session and Bateman recalls their first audience as ‘nine champion skateboarders sitting at the bar’. Butler had first learned blues harp at the age of six, because the instrument was the only one within his budget. Later he became a pupil of urban blues guitar maestro Hollywood Fats, who contributed to groups including the Blasters and the James Harman Band. When Fats died in 1986 it gave Butler the impetus to enter the music industry. After performing regularly at high school parties and other informal events, he eventually made the acquaintance of Bateman and Bartel, both fellow travellers on the Los Angeles roots rock scene (Bateman had also played on three albums with the Blasters). The Red Devils finally came to the attention of Def American Records and Rick Rubin in the early 90s, who saw an opening for their dense, excitable blues rock sound. Rubin was also on hand to record the band’s debut album, a glimpse of the Red Devils in their natural, live setting. The previous year they had appeared on sessions with Mick Jagger, though he did not include the results on his Wandering Spirit album. Butler signed to HighTone Records, releasing a solo album in 1997. He died from a drug overdose the following year”. Source: Artist Biography by AllMusic
