Gonks Go Beat!

gonks go beat

Watching the recent Ginger Baker documentary over the weekend, I saw this wonderful clip of the Graham Bond Organisation in technicolour action. It really is a brilliant tune and clip. Taken from the 1965 sci-fi musical “Gonks Go Beat!”, a film derided on release, in fact a film still derided as one of the worst British films of all time. Mark Kermode described it as “the Plan 9 from Outer Space of musicals”. Well not having seen the whole film I can’t comment, but to be honest if it’s anywhere as good as this clip it’s probably brilliant. Check it out…
