More Blowing Up

JR – despite preferring Zabriskie (does he have a point?) has sent this clip of the Yardbirds Ricky Tick sequence (ta). The choreographing of the audience is typical of the movie which you might like or not. The ‘bird’ dancing is Janet Street Porter, and the singer Keith Relf is, I’ve always thought, the worst of all the British R&B vocalists – thin whiny voice. He got sick sometime mid-1960s and Mick O’Neil (I believe – and possibly a Gladiator?) stood in. I remember seeing them on TV and he was much better.
