Shindig! No.82

Recently it was my absolute pleasure to spend an hour in the company of Stanley Dorfman, the man who virtually invented UK music TV. Enjoy my 20 Questions with him in this month's Shindig! Magazine, which is a bit of a mod special on the sly, including The Small Faces and my dad's favourite live act The Action. Vroom!

Shindig! No.78

Today! Shindig! No.78 with all manner of greatness, and a tiny bit of me talking to Guy Webster and Peter Stampfel about snakes and wee and that time we nearly got a very brilliant album cover to add to the 'banned' list. Buy this mag kids.

Talking January Blues

This month you can catch two of my talks.

I'll be at Kings Lynn Community Cinema Club on Thursday 18th January at 7pm with 'The Sound of Silents', two hours of silent movie music, clips, and discussion.

Then at the Letchworth Settlement on Thursday 25th January at 10.30am with 'Visual Magic In The Musicals', a celebration of the pioneering effects work of the classic musical films under the studio system.

See you there!

Shindig! No.75

Happy 1968! Out today is Shindig No.75 with too much top stuff to list here, but if you can dig the avant-garde, psychedelic cinema, the rebirth of Motown, and sisters sticking it to the man, then '68 might just be the new '67. I've said it before and I'll say it again - best issue yet!
