“ In the beginning of 1971 he (Bernd Zamulo, bass-player, pianist, singer) made his decision and left The Lords, which in turn led to the break-up of the band who in fact reformed years later. The break-up of The Lords created a furore in the press but could not hold Bernd back from his decision and he went looking for new musicians, which didn’t take long. Bernd’s interest in American Indians led to the group being called Sitting Bull. His past career with The Lords put him in good stead with the music industry making it easier to find a record deal. To avoid record company influence the band decided to produce their record themselves but this was an expensive  matter and the money had to come from somewhere. (…) With a record company advance from CBS, Sitting Bull moved into Hamburg’s Windrose studio to record their debut LP: Trip Away”. Quoted from, All Rights Reserved: (Manfred Steinheuer).

‘First Class Life’ is Texas based Mike Zito’s 14th album. It’s is a stripped-down blues album on which he sets himself the challenge of penning some meaningful narratives to fill the genre with fresh input. He achieves this in part, with a handful of outstanding tracks of which the opening slide-led narrative of ‘Mississippi Nights’ is very evocative and sets the standard (…). Better still, is the noir-filled narrative of ‘Old Black Graveyard’, which is a deep groove punctuated by Zito’s slide guitar that neatly underpins one of his most impassioned vocals (…) . He’s at his best when recalling his own life experiences, which fill the groove filled title track with impassioned intent as he shares his mission statement with real gusto: “I got a second chance at living a first class life.”

“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 Nederlandse groep The Torero’s met Karin Kent”. BRON: http://www.bluesharmonica
