The British Invasion: December 19th, 1964

March 1, 2012

The Beatles slid into the number 2 slot – held off by the Supreme’s second number one single in a row.  The Honeycombs made their final entrance into the Top 100 with “I Can’t Stop”.  This is one of two U.S. 45 picture sleeves – the other being the highly sought afer “Colour Slide”.

The Honeycombs - I Can't Stop

The Spotnicks

The Spotnicks were a dazzling Swedish instrumental group that formed in the early 1960’s.  When I see this video I can’t help but think about Devo.  Patterned much alike the Ventures and England’s Shadows – and like both they released a ton of instrumental albums into the 1970’s.  They definitely exuded the “Beat” persona^!
