Hits From The 1970s

Following on from the personal freedom laid in the swinging 60s, artists experimented with their sound, look and entire persona in more and more extreme ways. Popular in London was punk rock, with The Sex Pistols and The Clash leading a clan of pierced, leather-clad young upstarts that were keen to show two fingers up to the establishment.

Unlike the 60s which still remains one of the most revered decades for popular music, the 1970's always divided opinion. It was after all the decade which gave us flared trousers and tank tops. However, when you look back it contained some cracking musical tunes. One of our favourites is always number 30, often requested by number only and not the title when we play local venues.

The video above shows the Pudenski Bros. performing at Mokobo Burger Bar in Pokesdown, Bournemouth and is an unplugged local favourite from Birmingham Band ELO called Mr Blue Sky. Locally known as Number 30.
