Where Are They Now? Pan's People

Martin Aston, Q, March 1993

BEFORE POP video, before the miscegenetic raunch of Hot Gossip, before we knew better, there was Pan's People. They were Top Of The Pops' resident dancers between 1968 and 1976, but were stars in their own right as cabaret artistes and boutique-openers. "We gigged like a band too," Cherry Gillespie recalls, "which was the most hilarious part of the whole thing. At every university we played, the females held demonstrations, and we got mobbed everywhere... marvellous."
