Subject: RE: Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion?
So far I've not caught up with this thread beyond "the Move or the Small Faces"

Two of my absolutely favourite bands and most important formative musical influences since I was about 12 in 1971...

Bearing in mind that to a 12 year old in 1971 these bands were obscure old fashioned music from a byegone era...

If it hadn't been for Woolworths and cheap MFP LPs...

[though in fairness, Radio one also occasionally played such golden oldies...]

..and the Small Faces eventually became a crucial influence
on teen punk rockers sick of over complex pompous pretentious prog rock...


now to go back and read the rest of this thread...
