MEXICO CITY: the Masssacre of 2nd October 1968
“On October 2nd, ten days before the Olympics were to begin, around ten thousand students gathered in the Plaza of Three Cultures. They were surrounded by thousands of soldiers and armoured vehicles; only in 2001 was it confirmed that dozens of agents provocateurs and snipers were positioned among and around the crowd too. Just after six in the evening, flares were lit and shooting began. Elena Poniatowska collated eyewitness accounts giving a harrowing impression of chaos and confusion. The crowd of students, as well as local workers and families, were fired upon, and many were killed. The number of dead remains controversial; early, absurdly-low government claims repeated by domestic (and some international) media were replaced over time by suggestions of many dozens – and perhaps hundreds – murdered.” Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: https://www.versobooks.com/blogs/3884-1968-an-end-and-a-beginning-for-mexico
PSYCHEDELIC STATES: Alabama in the 60s, vol. 2
“The second Alabama instalment in Gear Fab’s fab “Psychedelic States” is more of the same, meaning a mixed bag of Clearasil psychedelia and undersexed garage rock, but it skews enticingly more towards the former sort of weirdness this time around than did the original volume. The compilation still has the good (but not psychedelic) regional hits mixed in with the fourth-rate, mainstream-aping pap (unappetizing even as guilty nostalgic pleasures) and more than its fair share of decent but not-nearly-as-groovy-as-they-thought filler, which is at least of a quality to elicit a giggle or smile the first two or three times through (though that is perhaps one or two more spins than the stuff merits). On the other hand, the relatively significant number of oddball, shaggy-dog nuggets makes the collection worth sifting through, starting right out the box with The Chimes “#38” and its effects pedal-heavy acid blues. The Distortions do a far-out, yowling (literally) version of the Howlin’ Wold classic “Smokestack Lightning” with some excellent slide guitar work, good enough to get them signed to Mercury. The deliciously named the Outer Mongolian Herd crank out a “Hey Joe” halfway between the Love version of the song and the unhinged nuttiness of “Wooly Bully.” And the infectious, harmony-laden “You’re Playing With Fire” finds The Male in full-tilt boogie. But perhaps the strangest curiosity, for extra-musical reasons: “Think!!,” a 1968 cut by George Wallace Jr. Yes, the son of the infamous governor. And, yeah, it’s pretty solid”.

The Presidents: 1959 to 1965
The Presidents was formed in 1959, and played mainly in pubs and clubs throughout the South London suburbs, experiencing numerous personnel changes until it dissolved in 1965. Over the years they played alongside bands such as The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, and Georgie Fame.
Singer Rick Tyrell was a member of The Fenders aka The Strangers, who became The Roulettes in September 1961.

RADIO SIDNEY: ‘WHAT ABOUT US?’ by BRUCE WELSH
‘What About Us?’ showcases the thousands of “other guys” who were turning out records in the U.K. between 1962 and 1969. A few may have had fleeting success with a one hit wonder tune but like all the big names of the day, they were just trying to make it big. Some of them enjoyed major success outside the U.K. over in Germany, France, Italy and Sweden and experienced the frenzied girls screaming and chasing them. A number of these bands also contained members who would eventually crack the big time with other bands but they paid their dues in these lesser known bands before finding success.
As for a bit on me, I’d just use the About The Author of “What About Us?: A Rocklopaedia of Britain’s Other Recording Groups 1962-1966 ” (M-Y Books UK) https://m-ybooks.co.uk/
