Ladies ’n Gents
Welcome to the 11th issue of Belle Vue press. First of all we’d like to thank all of You who supported us all of these years! Then we’d like to say a few words about the new hot issue that comes out in A5 format in 60 glossy pages and contains some real amazing stuff for your reading, listening and dancing pleasure. In this issue you can find articles about the “Ye Ye Phenomenon” the teen pop explosion in France, the story of the garage popsters “The Morning Dew”, the first ‘big band’ in Greece “The Lovers” from Larissa (featuring Sotiris Komatsioulis), about the Jamaican trombonist and songwriter “Don Drummond”, an interview with the unique Folk-Punk band in nowadays in Greece “The Barbara Farmers”, about the life and music of the jazz blues god “Mose Allison”, plus as always, Belle Vue activities, news, commix and reviews-old n new- for some 45’s and LP’s we love!
And of course, because mod and sixties culture isn’t only music, but also a way of life and the way you feel and act, in this attempt you can read an intro to the 60s industrial design, about the work of Finish designer “Eero Aarnio”, the Greek pioneer pop artist “Alexis Akrithakis”, interview with Lambretta maniac Dean Orton from the “Lambretta Rimini Centre” and more!
Also, came out with the debut 4track vinyl EP from The Barbara Farmers or an 8track CD from the Barbara Farmers featuring Greek 60’s legend Sotiris Komatsioulis who performing two unreleased hits from his “The Lovers” period!
