Go on, who'd we miss? The 1960s. They say if you can remember it, you weren’t there. Which, if the documentaries that have filled up BBC 4 and Sky Arts for the last couple of decades are anything to go by, suggests nobody was there in the sixties, cos they all seem to have a hell of a lot to say about it now. If there’s ever been a decade whose music has been examined, observed, pored-over, analysed, celebrated, and played endlessly, it’s the 1960s. It’s a decade that appeared to start in black and white, then transform into full colour halfway through, almost like it was a Wizard Of Oz tribute decade. With the colour on film and, later, TV, came the explosion of everybody’s home decorating set that was psychedelia. Some took the drugs that gave it its name (those would be the folks who went on to be unable to remember the decade) while plenty more consumed the colours on their album covers and their clothes. And one country punched well above its weight in the Swinging Sixties: Britain. Our painters and sculptors were in the forefront of Pop Art and Op Art; our designers like Mary Quant and Terence Conran revolutionized fashion; our film makers unleashed James Bond, Hammer Horror and Carry On movies on the world. But it was in one area that the Brits undeniably ruled supreme – the world of popular music.
