Whilst about my business today I came across the below poster,
which rather flummoxed me. Who'd have thought there was a market for a David Essex tribute artist? I'm rather reminded of the Simpson's gag. A poster outside Springfield concert hall reads:-
" Tonite - Moody Blues Tribute Band
plus support act The Moody Blues"
Mr Essex himself adorns the cover of the issue of Jackie, (originally published Feb 15th 1975) free with todays Guardian. They're giving away a classic comic every day next week. What a great idea. I'm looking forward to the Whizzer and Chips with an enthusiasm bordering on rabies.
Whilst we're in the early seventies, Mondo and Piley were reminiscing on Podrophenia 3 (available free on iTunes) about the late, great Brian Connolly and lack of recognition and retro-respect. I've got a huge affection for Sweet. Wig Wam Bam was the first record I ever owned.
Piley described him as 'a beautiful man'.
