Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!
The 14 Hour Technicolour Dream
Tags (All lower case. Use " " for multiple word tags): alexandra palace, john lennon
John Lennon is with John Dunbar, Marianne Faithfull's husband - they'd seen the event on the TV news in John's house in Weybridge and decided to go up to Alexandra Palace on a whim, chauffeur driven no doubt.
A certain Yoko Ono is also there, doing a piece of performance art involving a young lady. Possibly attracting Mr L's attention.
Pity such radical events as the 14-hour Technicolor Dream are no longer very frequent at the Peoples Palace ... now its pinnacle of fame is hostting a month of myriads of pot-bellied darts throwers and their boozy fans
Certainememt pas! Sounds even more ghastly than the tattoo fair I saw advertised there last year, but better those sorts of event s than nothing at at all and dereliction I suppose.
John Lennon had met Yoko Ono the previous October at her exhibition at Indica Galleryin the West End.
I've seen footage in a couple of documentaries of local mods (prototype skinheads really) who turned up at the Technicolor Dream to jeer at the hippies and look for a bit of aggro.
What ghastly music!!!
Pink Floyd with the late Syd Barrett - great stuff and deservedly very popular!
Shucks, the video has been removed from YouTube by the copyright police
