Wouldn’t it be nice to get on with my neighbours?
Nothing would ever be the same again, the 1960s was the period of time which changed everything. The sixties decade was the most incredibly exciting, influential, inventive and vibrant period for popular music in the 20th century.
The 3,653 days belonging to the sixties are unforgettable and still lend a rich dimension to our lives today. It was the era where skirts kept getting shorter, hair kept getting longer and the youth of the day were liberated from the wartime hardship and the prim attitudes of the fifties. There was an awakening renaissance for the arts where painting, dance, sculpture, fashion and especially music changed all the rules.
Looking back through blurred glasses we see an explosion of colour, images of youth Jean Shrimpton, Britt Ekland, Twiggy, Julie Christie, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger and of course The Beatles, all expressing an exuberance and panache which we later related to the sixties decade. Swinging London was underway by the mid-1960s, fashionable shopping areas had developed such as Carnaby Street, and the Kings Road where fashion boutiques were selling their latest gear to the (Mods) Modernist youth revolution. The Kinks 1966 single "Dedicated Follower of Fashion" epitomized the dandyness of the time. (http://www.sixtiesmusic.org)
Never mind all that - the 60s produced some of the best and most enduring pop music ever, particularly from this side of the Atlantic, and The Lazy Sundays are dedicated to keeping that music alive - The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, The Small Faces, The Animals ... the list goes on. The set also includes a few classics from the late 1950s and the early 1970s that have a 60s feel about them.
Look out for a Lazy Sundays gig near you and come and sing along, dance or just tap your feet to this great music.
