Britain’s COMMUNITY BANDS of the late 1960s and early 1970s. MUSIC IS a soundtrack to popular culture. The revolutionary movement of the 1960s was no exception. 1967 is forever associated with flower power, peace, and the summer of love, while 1968 —tumultuous in terms of global unrest and revolutionary ferment — is synonymous with being “the year of the barricades.” Much has been written about 1968 and music and revolution, most notably Mick Jagger and John Lennon in Britain and their brief flirtations with radical chic. However, there was also a music scene operating at a grass roots, street level of the British counterculture that included the likes of the Deviants, Edgar Broughton Band, and slightly later Pink Fairies, Hawkwind and Third World War.
