The Bunnies From Britain leave London Airport in 1966 for Playboy HQ in Chicago. No word on whether Hugh Hefner released them from captivity.

Something for the Weekend



Who needs Pan’s People when you have the massed ranks of the TOTP audience dollies to dance for you.

We’re with the band


I hope this ad didn’t intend to portray the rock and roll life as a glamourous one, because if it did it failed miserably.

Just the other week I was saying that boys start rock bands so they can attract more girls. I guess they can’t all be Jerry Hall.

Dear Titbits…


I wonder what “finding consolation in pin-ups” means.

Nice Chopper Moulton


I never realized the Moulton bike was such a cult icon, there’s even one at the Museum of Modern of Art in New York.

Something for the Weekend



I don’t remember this record at all — a rather weird tribal-psychedelic remake of “Sugar Sugar” (by Jonathan King according to the internets) — but this is worth watching just for the TOTP audience which is jam packed with dancing dollies (some of whom we’ve seen before) and quite a few suave gentlemen too. It must have been cravat week.

The chart is a wonderful thing too, Perry Como and Andy Williams rubbing shoulders with T. Rex and Deep Purple.

Something for the Weekend



Make sure you stick around for the credits at the end.
