The Dark Side Of The Mersey: Retro-Rock Scallies
John McCready, The Face, 1988
A HIPPIE IS chased down a darkened street by a group of 16 year-old Casuals. In most parts of Britain, what follows is likely to test his pacifist views sorely. In Liverpool, hes more likely to be nagged for tales of the Isle of Wight festival. Genesis are big in Merseyside. So is Zappa. But biggest of all are Pink Floyd.
