What we’re gonna do right here is go back … way back, back into time.
Come on – who didn’t read that line in the deep, gruff, drawled accent of Jimmy Castor on his 1972 million seller hit, ‘Troglodyte.’ You know, the soundbite that’s been used in the past to herald ‘oldie’ songs on radio shows from the Emperor Rosko to Johnnie Walker?
And that’s just what we plan to do here at Once Upon a Time in The 70s – ‘go back …way back, back into time.’
Co-founder Paul and myself grew up in suburban Glasgow during the late 60s and through the 70s. Looking back now at some of the strife and strikes of the time, historians may consider the decade to be one of bleak decay.
To us though, it was filled with colour and imagination and fun and laughs. And of course fights, skint knees and corporal punishment in school.
But what did you make of it all? We’d love to know!
