- 70's hippie types, did you just catch the Tubular Bells stuff on BBC 4?
Great program. BBC4 is magic on a Friday night. A bit before my time. Did not know a huge amount about Mike Oldfield or Tubular Bells other than the Exorcist. Have just downloaded the album though.
Watching a programme about synth music. Just really discovering how far out synth sounds must have been in the 70’sPosted 4 years ago
My parents also hippies(still). A early childhood on the welsh coast with the strangest band of drop outs, but all good earthy crafts type people. I think incredible string band and pink Floyd dominate my formative years listening. I have some amazing pics from those days.Posted 4 years ago
I went out with mike oldfields niece for a few years, met him on numerous occasions. I regrettably turned down a Christmas at his place in Gustaad.
Tang, the Incredible String Band used to pop in to my folks shop. There is even a lyric which mentions them somewhere.
‘Mrs Thompson gave me a bear, Brigitte and some people lived upstairs.
