Live On Air '66 - '68

The Troggs - Live On Air 1966 - 68

The Troggs, live on Top of the Pops, 26th April 1966 – 13th September 1968.

Dismissed by critics, shunned by historians, reviled by some, The Troggs were the first primal punk antidote to a bourgeois pop scene with too many teenage idols. Their primitive pop sensibility was a major influence on the '70s Punk movement, particularly the Ramones, Iggy Pop, the MC5, Sex Pistols and R.E.M. who’ve cited The Troggs as a major influence. In 1977, the Beatles and the Stones were dismissed by the punks while the Troggs were embraced. Between their hits Wild Thing, With A Girl Like You and Love Is All Around, the Troggs made 12 appearances for the BBC courtesy of host Brain Matthews. Stand aside for a defining chapter in British rock as we unearth the raw Neanderthal sound of the Troggs live at the BBC from April 1966 to September 1968. Stunningly re-mastered from the original transcription discs, with background liners, original interviews, anecdotes and a plethora of rare original memorabilia.

The Mindbenders - Live On Air 1966-68 

The Mindbenders, live on air, 22nd March 1966 – 13th August 1968

From their huge success with Wayne Fontana and The Game Of Love in January 1965, Manchester group The Mindbenders were a guaranteed success story. However in 1965, Fontana took a solo route and left the band midway through a live show in 1965. While many groups may have collapsed under the pressure, The Mindbenders suddenly found a new lease of life when they struck gold with A Groovy Kind Of Love, a song that has become synonymous with the ‘Swinging 60s’. It was this, and several other follow-up singles that prompted their numerous BBC sessions from 1966 to 1968.

London Calling very proudly presents The Mindbenders in session for the BBC with host Brian Matthew. Includes a wealth of revealing interviews and exclusive recordings, and charts the group’s journey as pop stars and the developing talent of songwriter Eric Stewart. Professionally re-mastered original broadcasts with background liners and rare archival photographs.
