Introducing My Animals One By One by Alan Price

uncredited writer, Rave, August 1964

MEET THE Animals and you find five r-and-b purists. That's all they want out of life — to play blues. It was this dedication in r-and-b which brought them together. They heard each other play in Newcastle's darkened cellar clubs, where the noise was loud and hypnotic and flooded out into the narrow grimy street above. This is where they met. Played together often just for kicks and free drinks.
