Excellent with a punk smirk!
I love seeing the history. Thanks Stu.
Some cigar box rockin'.
The 12 Bar in Denmark Street and the whole regentrification of Denmark Street in Soho, London was the catalyst for this song. Denmark Street is were the UK's song writing district in the Tin Pan Alley era was and continued with being steeped in music with venues, instrument shops, practice rooms and recording studios. The Pistols lived there, Elton John wrote Your Song there, The Kinks and The Stones recorded there. Here's an article from when the redevelopment started.
Well it's 1969 okay
All across the USA
It's another year
For me and you
With nothing to do
at 15/16 I was bang into punk.... Uncle John you got it wrong mate! This is classic mid 70`s punk!
Sounding good, Stu. That must have been a good venue. You sound right out of 1969 on this one.
