Listen to the colour of your dreams
Music from the Beatles
A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
How it started
Michael: "I was 8 when my long suffering parents bought me a plastic Beatles guitar for Christmas after I had whinged for weeks. It was pink and had
the FAB FOUR'S faces and autographs on the front. I couldn't play it but I took it to bed with me for a few weeks."
Phil: "When I was 9, I visited my cousin Yvonne in Liverpool. That's when I first heard about them. In the Saturday Daily Mirror
they were flanked in a centre spread by Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, and Freddy and the Dreamers. Whatever happened to them?"
Michael: "Later on I saw Magical Mystery Tour on the telly and would have killed for the wonderfully painted hippy guitar that George played on
one track. I thought they all looked really cool and tried unsuccessfully to grow a beard."
Phil: "My Granny bought me Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band for my 12th birthday (I asked her to) and thought it was a strange military band. 'Do they play
marching tunes?' she asked. 'Well Granny, sort of', I said."
What they said about them
"These lads cultivate a vague allusion to being musicians, in a gurgling sort of way."
- New York World Telegram, February 8, 1964
"Visually they are a nightmare: tight, dandified Edwardian beatnik suits and great pudding-bowls of hair."
- Newsweek, February 24, 1964
You don't want to listen to this rubbish, do you?
- Phil's dad
What they say about Repeat to Fade
"Two very nice young men!"
"I never heard Beatles songs played like that before!"
"Were they really all Beatles songs?"
"Well, I never knew the Beatles helped in the development of Computer Aided Tomography!"
"One of them does look a bit like Paul McCartney!"
"The other one looks like Richard Gere. He was in the Beatles, wasn't he?"
