Flaming Youth

Flaming Youth
FLAMING YOUTH Flaming Youth are best known merely as footnotes in the histories of both Howard & Blaikley (who wrote the songs) and Genesis (the group included Phil Collins). Their album has been treated with scant regard, deep hatred (most notably by those musos who (a) think it is “cool” to hate Phil Collins; (b) think it i [...]

The Sun Goes Down (BBC)

THE SUN GOES DOWN   The B-side of ‘Zabadak’ was broadcast on 30 September 1967, in Saturday Club.

Hard To Love You (BBC)

Hard To Love You (BBC)
HARD TO LOVE YOU   A great performance from Dave Dee, with Dozy, Beaky and Tich joining on background vocals. Even more baroque than an ocarina solo on the Troggs’ “Wild Thing”, here we have Beaky playing the solo part on paper and comb (making it oriental sounding). And NME reviewer Allen Evans described Mick’s w [...]
