Peter Noone and Herman’s Hermits return to B.R.

Photo provided by peternoone.com -- Peter Noone, of Herman's Hermits, is shown in an undated photo from the 1960s.In this 50th anniversary year of the British Invasion — that musical and cultural revolution whose more obvious touchstones include the Beatles’ “Ed Sullivan Show” debut on Feb. 9, 1964 — Peter Noone, lead singer of second-wave British Invasion band Herman’s Hermits, hopes his likewise enormously popular group doesn’t get lost in the mix.
Herman’s Hermits, a quintet from Manchester, England, starring the 16-year-old Noone, launched their lengthy stretch of hits in the summer of 1964 with a bouncing Carole King-Gerry Goffin song, “I’m Into Something Good.”
Follow-ups included remakes of 1950s American hits “(What a) Wonderful World” and “Silhouettes,” the British music hall-inspired “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and the beautifully romantic modern pop of “There’s a Kind of Hush.”

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
