    Tapestry Of Delights:

    Most people know that Gary Glitter's real name was Paul Gadd. Many will also know that he was born on 8 May 1940 in Banbury, Oxfordshire. He has often tried to claim to be younger (well, why not if you can get away with it!). He's been playing in rock bands since the late fifties. His first outfit Paul Russell and The Rebels (Russell was his stepfather's surname) got a residency at The Safari Club in Trafalgar Square, London. Whilst working there he met Robert Hartford Davis, a film producer who became his manager and got him a recording contract with Decca. Now using the name Paul Raven, he recorded a 45 for Decca in 1960 (Alone In The Night) and two for Parlophone in 1961 (Walk On Boy and Tower Of Strength). All three flopped, but Raven soon resurfaced as a warm-up man for 'Ready Steady Go!' He also met Mike Leander (who would become his manager in his Gary Glitter days) and briefly became vocalist with The Mike Leander Orchestra. When they broke up he formed Paul Raven and Boston International (later The Bostons) who spent most of the early sixties in Germany.
    Later, in 1968, when Leander became UK head of MCA Records, he signed Paul Raven to the label and using a pseudonym (Paul Monday), Raven recorded a Leander composition, Musical Man, but it made little impact and a cover version of The Beatles' Here Comes The Sun did little better. He reverted to the Paul Raven monicker for his next MCA 45 and then recorded a 45 as Rubber Bucket. He also appeared on MCA's million-selling Jesus Christ Superstar album.

    Radical Southern California avant-garde diva Galas' first record, The Litanies of Satan, was not a heavy-metal prayer but rather a vocal adaptation of a poem by Charles Baudelaire. Using many electronic modifications (many learned during her working with such exemplary contemporary composers as Iannis Xenakis), Galas created a disturbing and provocative piece that was almost topped by the composition on the album's second side, the amusingly titled but harrowing "Wild Women with Steak-Knives (The Homicidal Love Song for Solo Scream)"--an endurance-defying unaccompanied stream of hideous vocal noises.

    Besides showcasing her astonishing voice and real knowledge of electronic manipulation, the two pieces on Diamanda Galas display her social conscience: "Panoptikon" is based on Jeremy Bentham's 1843 proposal for a prison where the inmates could be kept under constant observation by unseen captors, and "Tragouthia Apo to Aima Exoun Fonos" translates from the Greek as "Song from the Blood of Those Murdered."

    Desperate times lead to desperate actions. The Divine Punishment, Saint of the Pit and You Must Be Certain of the Devil comprise Masque of the Red Death, "the plague mass," Galas' strident but striking response to AIDS, sparked by her brother's 1986 death.

    Tapestry Of Delights:

    This London-based group was formed in 1963 by Martin Murray, who'd worked as a hairdresser by day and played guitar in various skiffle and rock groups by night. Ann Lantree was a hairdressing colleague who played drums as a hobby. Murray persuaded her to join the band giving them the added novelty of a woman drummer. They weren't actually the first male band to use a woman drummer - this dubious honour belonged to The Ravens. Ann's brother John filled the bass slot after an earlier bassist had come and gone and Murray also recruited Nottingham-born Ward and vocalist D'ell (real name Denis Dalziel) on a friend's recommendation.

    In their early days the band gigged around North London as The Sherabons but they soon opted for the catchier Honeycombs on account of Ann's nickname and their hair stylist background.

    Their first big break came when they were spotted playing at the Mildmay Tavern in Islington by the Howard-Blaikley songwriting team. They took over the band's management, got them a record deal with Pye and the services of ace producer Joe Meek. The debut 45, Have I The Right?, a Howard-Blaikley composition with an infectious Dave Clark-style beat topped the UK Charts and later rose to No 5 in the US becoming a million-seller. A classic of the genre it's the type of record that you can't stand still to and was later covered by the Back Street Kids in the eighties. It was one of Meek's final offerings before his tragic suicide and arguably one of his best.
