More Action

Lenny has sent this link to that Action album. Much will be familiar but side three is particularly interesting

I hope this works. It allows you to hear the tracks

Nicolas Roeg RIP

The film Director has died. His movies included Performance, a remarkable portrayal of London gangsters and a fading rock star played by Mick Jagger. It is strictly speaking a late 1960s movie – the end of the dream – although its release was delayed. I recall seeing it at the cinema in Cosham High Street. A few years later came The Man Who Fell to Earth, starring David Bowie.

The Live Five!

If you have access to ‘Talking Pictures’ TV then at 8.45 pm this evening they’re showing Laurence Harvey & Cliff Richard in Expresso Bongo. If you don’t blink, there is a very brief scene in a recording stdio featuring a guitar-based group who came from Pompey. They were originally the Mick Glover Group but when he went off to do National Service they renamed themselves The Live Five. Some people still recall with great fondness their Saturday morning gigs at the LDB, corner of Arundel Street (Debenhams now).
