Colour Me Pop

AUNTIE FINALLY works out how to broadcast more than just black and white stuff and sticks a load of “now” bands in front of their fancy new cameras to see what happens.

    The Small Faces performing Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake in its entirety was a highlight, complete with Stanley Unwin narrating. “Are you sitting comfty-bold two square on your botty?”

    A sort of So It Goes for the late sixties, with an accent on psychedelia and the emerging hard rock scene. It was followed up by Disco Two, which was full of bands like King Crimson playing very long songs late at night on BBC Two, and presenters discussing ten minute guitar solos.

    There’s a really awful performance by The Move doing Blackberry Way where either Carl Wayne or Roy Wood sounds horribly flat.

    The Move were one group who could have been even more successful than they were, but issues like their manager causing them to lose royalties through misfiring publicity stunts & other mishaps seemed to hold them back.

    Luckily they managed to evolve into the Electric Light Orchestra & were a steady chart performer for most of the 1970s & into the 1980s.

    The Move will always be best remembered as the group who were the first to be heard on Radio 1, but there was far more to them than Flowers In The Rain and they were successful hit makers until their demise in 1971. The ELO that succeeded The Move were massive in the later seventies and they seemed to jump from genre to genre, being sort of linked with prog rock on Eldorado and then with disco on Discovery.
