Holy Mountain

It’s 1973, Winstanley Road, Orrell. We’re in the school hall but this is no assembly.

We’re waiting for an appearance from Wigan’s premier rock band Copper Kettle at the school disco but before that we are being treated to the latest chart sounds from Lord Barrington’s Roadshow.

It’s the usual records and then the good Lord of Marsh Green announces a new release and drops the needle on the record and plays this.

It’s no Sweet or Wizard but it isn’t bad. We clap our hands and stomp our feet and get ready for the appearance on Top of the Pops next week.

“She fell, she fell right under my spell…”
