OK so lets lighten the mood just a tiny amount, whilst the various pirate & free radio forums appear to have either nodded off again or been censored into submission. I knew the CIA had used acid for a couple of decades in various mind control experiments (for experiment read abuse of vulnerable helpless people), however these British soldiers made the whole thing something else, eat your heart out Timothy Leary our Marines were turned on, tuned in and dropping out, back in 1964 & way ahead of your hippy happenings.
Next up we have Simon Dee again in 1964 (I know some anoraks will be familiar with this video) contemplating a rather straight interviewer & smiling as he pretends he doesn't know how much he is being paid, mind you if Ronan's later antics are anything to go by, perhaps he was put in charge of the payroll right from the start! (One for you - ten for me)...
Next we have Screaming Lord Sutch performing Jack The Ripper (again in 1964) now this man and his band could have been so much bigger (perhaps he was ironically retro & yet ahead of his time). I saw him live at Flashback 77 where the drum kit ended up on fire whilst the band played on, much more fun than Ronan & his hangers on strutting around with self importance.
Finally we have some audio of Caroline from 1964 (what a coincidence) however for those searching for detail & improved anorak credentials, note Simon Dee giving out their mailing address, it ain't Chesterfield Gardens, or Caroline House.
For those wanting to watch the video live, then please look away now (do you remember BBC doing that with football scores on a Saturday afternoon?) any how for the rest of you, send your requests to Radio Caroline, 54-62, Regent Street, London, W1.
