from the Seventies
Brian Robert Pearce
|Brian Pearce busked the streets
and bars of Europe between the years 1994 and 2000. In addition he
busked in New York while participating in the TIGHTROPE musical, a play
written by Ken Post [ with Bonnie Burns].
The journal exists, at present, as approx. 750,000 hand written words formatted in about 55 segments
1974, the 'hippy' scene was
in full flow - and bands with long hair and flares tended to indulge in
long, extended tracks with fantasy lyrics and instrumental eternity. I
went to the Cambridge Corn Exchange to see DR FEELGOOD, not knowing a
thing about them. No long hair. No flowery flares. No long, extended
tracks. By the end of the gig I was a fan, going on to buy all their
Short hair, drainpipe suits, songs that rarely reached three minutes and attitude. DR FEELGOOD were the harbingers of PUNK. The idea of short songs with attitude.
