Hit Factories - A Journey Through The Industrial Cities of British Pop # 3 The Animals


To Newcastle. A fascinating, ever changing city. Still. The place where I live..Karl Whitney focuses his attention on Nik Cohn, originally from Derry. He relocated to Newcastle at the age of 15 in 1961 with his parents and fashioned himself into perhaps the first Modern Rock Journalist. Newwcastle was a otugh Industrial city then, a reuytation that has persisted unfairly as times have changed. For Cohn pop provided 'an escape from rationality'. This is a fantastic chapter which I would direct anybody interested in finding out more about the Newcastle music scene towards and particularly its explosion in the Sixties. Fasinating portraits of the clubs, The Animals and Bryan Ferry.
