yho44 - deliberately

The forty-fourth edition of YHO is very much about the Make Up and their untouchable gospel yeh-yeh dance sound/stance.  These may seem random ruminations, but were in fact particularly prompted by:
  • Ø  Ian F. Svenonius’ Supernatural Strategies
  • Ø  The Fallen Leaves’ If Only We’d Known
  • Ø  Chain and the Gang’s In Cool Blood
  • Ø  Ghetto Brothers’ Power Fuerza
These meditations on the Make Up feature Douglas Hart’s scholarly study of the pea coat and its aesthetic and social significance.
