Take your brain, it’s time to go…

Reg King, lead singer and songwriter for sixties icons The Action has died.

As well as having a cult following as an original Mod band of the sixties, the Action managed the transition from mod into psychedelia well and actually recorded a real classic in 1967’s Rolled Gold, one of my favourite sixties album. I’m not sure it was actually released at the time; if it was, it bombed. And that was that…

One of the thing’s that’s really sad about his death is that it happened over a month ago and I’ve only just heard. Now, either that means I’ve been living the life of a monk, shunning all contact with the outside world, or nobody much cared…

Here’s the Guardian’s obituary (a month late).

Listen to “Brain” from Rolled Gold, it’s wonderful.

Remember me…
