1966 was a seminal year in British history. England won the World Cup in football. Things had been getting better and better financially and everyone expected life to continue on in that direction. However it was something of a watershed politically and for the arts. These panels are a wonder reminder to all who lived through that year, and an education to those who came later!
Jon Savage has written an amazing book ‘1966 The Year the Decade Exploded‘and this is what is written on the cover.
“The pop world accelerated and broke through the sound barrier in 1966. In America, in London, in Amsterdam, in Paris, revolutionary ideas slow-cooking since the late ’50s reached boiling point. In the worlds of pop, pop art, fashion and radical politics — often fueled by perception-enhancing substances and literature — the ‘Sixties’, as we have come to know them, hit their Modernist peak. A unique chemistry of ideas, substances, freedom of expression and dialogue across pop cultural continents created a landscape of immense and eventually shattering creativity. After 1966 nothing in the pop world would ever be the same. The 7 inch single outsold the long-player for the final time. It was the year in which the ever lasting and transient pop moment would burst forth in its most articulate, instinctive and radical way.”
