It was The Dylans that motivated me to wear love beads during my teens. At the time I didn’t realise that it was them. All the other shoegazer fans were wearing beads.
The beads were not the only 60s pastiche they had. There music was laden with Hammond organ and wah. Combine this with the psychedelic lyrics and song titles Mary Quant in Blue, Sad Rush on Sunday and Particle Ride and you have all the ingredients for a great album.
I went to see The Dylans at the Bournemouth Hothouse and one of the band members was wearing a jumper with The Dylans lemon logo knitted on the front. This did not inspire me to get my Gran to create a similar article.
