Saw the new Bond movie. So naturally, had to post this: The Animals performing “Boom Boom” at Wembley Arena in 1965.

    Featuring the late--and pedophilic--Jimmy Saville doing the intro.

    The most underrated group of the British Invasion. (Although this performance is pretty half-assed. Eric, there are only about twelve words in the whole song. Come on!)

    Why even bother with the imitators? John Lee owns this.

    John Lee owns it sure. Always has, always will. But it's a sad commentary on American culture that it took the Brits to wake us up to our own musical heritage.
