What I bought today...

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet! I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I…

"Aside from Martha & the Vandellas The Marvelettes are my favourite female Motown group Kai. Songs such as 'Too Many Fish in the Sea,' 'The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game' and 'I'll Keep Holding On' are to me some of the best from that amazing labe…"

"The latest by Nick Hornby. Nothing too challenging, but fun to read. Plot settled in 1960s London."

"First time I listened The Creation I thought in a big influence in its sound. Also in The Attack and The Smoke.
I don't know when did the term 'freakbeat' appear."

"I stand corrected. The Who - The Who Sell Out and The Who - A Quick One albums, were the groups contribution to Freakbeat so I've been advised from a reliable source.
