The Sunday Times 28th March 1971

That was close it was almost to the day that this post tied in with the date on The Sunday Times supplement, missed it by a day.  The photographer Red Saunders is a fellow Hackney boy and worked with The Sunday Times for 2 years, he was a founder of Rock Against Racism in 1976 (The movement that saw The Clash play in Victoria Park Hackney in 1978).  Red devastatingly had his photographic archive destroyed by an arson attack and so these magazines should be appreciated and used in even more flyers and zines. Considering its only one page the impact of this image made quite an impression on youth across the country, it has been used on flyers, zines and...

SNOOKS EAGLIN by Alexis Korner - Jazz monthly June 1961

Snooks Eaglin is something of a hero in the Anglozine household.  3 albums were handed down from our elders originally purchased c 1964 near Great Barr comprehensive secondary school (the school where Spencer Davis was a teacher- another story another time).  Somehow these discs have lived to tell the tale having been played at parties in the second city, spent summers in Paignton Devon UK and now at Anglozine London HQ.   In fact some of the only damage has been inflicted by the owner of Anglozine using one of the albums as a drawing board in 1976.  Embossed outlines of spaceships and sports cars now grace the gloss cover in a certain light.  The cover is what originally grabbed my...

The Sunday Times - 2nd August 1964

CRAWDADDY May 1967

The Crawdaddy magazine May 1967 based in NYC-  no relation to the West London night club started in 1962 but equally as pioneering.  In the field of journalism and format it has set the tone for some of the most respected music magazines around today. The photographs in this article were taken by Linda Eastman (later know as Mrs Linda McCartney) on board the SS Sea Panther at New York Marina.  Quite a few journalists heard that Linda was shooting the scruffy Brits on an exclusive junket and rushed down to the dockside.  She was offered just a few dollars for these images on what was one of her very first band shoots.  The photographs were taken in colour but...
