Favoriting November 15, 2019: The Flange & Frigate #055 - Some Other Guys


There were, of course, more than four people born in Liverpool who started a popular beat combo in those halcyon days of the Sixties, and on today's Flange & Frigate with DJ GeorgyGirl we celebrate them and the Scouse city by the sea. Featuring artists like The Searchers, The Merseys, The Swinging Blue Jeans, Tommy Quickly, Gerry & The Pacemakers, and more! Oh - and we do talk about the other OTHER guys as well. Be rude not to.

4 pm to 6 pm (EST)/9 pm to 11 pm (GMT)

Listen! Chat! And share!

Hey GG! Kicking things off with a Bo Diddley cover makes me happy. Question: isn't 'scouse' referring to Manchester?

Hi Mr Fab! Manchester is Mancunian :-)

If you called someone from Manchester a Scouser they might kick you! You wouldn't want that! :-)

There's always tons of extra police when Liverpool play Manchester United at football - not a lot of love between the two cities!

Ha, got it. "Randy Scouse Git," on of my fave Monkees songs, has nothing to do with Liverpool, near as I can tell.

what year was the Tommy Quickly? i'm guessing it was first.

Linda Lee:

i hear Paul's shoutin' vocal in this "Bony Moronie' too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - yep, it dies :-) There was a show called "Til Death Us Do Part" - "All in the Family" was the US take on it. And the son-in-law was a Liverpudlian, so the dad character used to call him a "randy scouse git". Mickey Dolenz thought it sounded cool ... which is why they ended up calling it "Alternate Title" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

Interestingly - the actor who played the son-in-law was Prime Minister Tony Blair's father in law in real life! :-)

Over here in the 60's, everyone used Castrol in their dirt bikes.
Avatar 4:19pm
Mr Fab:

Linda, I heard (and maybe GG can confirm this) that Liverpudlians were hipper then Londoners thanks to an American military presence that brought all the new records to the scousers before even those snobs down south could get 'em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

Castrol was HUGE back in the day. Are they still a company?

The Fortune Teller - also a big track for The 'oo :-)

I trust you're all in Cuban heels today? ;-)

I forget where Brian Eno grew up, but he says that the nearby US base's radio station was very influential to his upbringing. Lotsa stuff he didn't hear on the BBC.

Merseybeat, Tiki, Exotica, Lounge .... all traced back to the forces moving around the globe!

i wore my last pair of beatle boots in the 70s, alas!

yes, it does! really true!

I think Mod style was a definite watershed moment for male British fashion.
