Thank You For Your Service, Thank You All, Have A Great Christmas, God Will Be With You.
the politicians need to get it through their fucking heads that with poorly trained or funded or God forbid, both firefighters, the city, and the people of that city will be in much greater danger. the budget cuts are ridiculous. we need to stop spending money on nuclear weapons that will probably never get used, if we put that money in the fire service, we could avoid many unnecessary LODD's or front line injuries.
My maternal grandfather was a mechanic for Worcester Fire on Grove Street for many years, and my cousin was a firefighter for Auburn and he was on scene on the I290 overpass. My grandfather can no longer watch 'Backdraft' or 'Ladder 49'. My dad knew Joe McGuirk and my grandfather retired after 12/3/99. I attended the precession and I cried along with my dad and grandfather because they knew these men and were heartbroken by this tragedy.
NEVER FORGET 12/3/99 WORCESTER 6
Denis Leary need to stop pretending like he a fire fighter.
Holy shit! What an emotional tribute ? kudos...

On July 6, 2012, American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA will be showing a special screening of Reelin' In The Years Productions' unreleased documentary "The Pretty Things: Midnight To Six 1965-1970", which features 20 full-length performances, including their historic, riot-inducing R&B period, their highly influential, rock-opera/psychedelic "SF Sorrow" period, and ending with their proto-heavy metal "Parachute" period. Between songs are new interviews with the original band members (Phil May, Dick Taylor, John Stax, Skip Alan, Wally Waller and Jon Povey) telling stories and recounting the fascinating, tumultuous and controversial history of the band. This film is the only documentary ever to focus on The Pretty Things, one of the most influential yet unsung rock groups in history. After the screening will be a panel discussion and Q&A with the producers David Peck, Tom Gulotta, Phil Galloway and Rob Bowman and music historian Bart Mendoza.
"One of the greatest R&B bands of all time"
"The Pretty Things always made The Stones look tame."
DAVE GILMOUR - "PINK FLOYD"
"The Pretty Things were the biggest influence on us. They were so wild.... they invented garage bands."
JOEY RAMONE - "THE RAMONES'
"The Beatles" were cute, "The Stones" were students, but "The Pretty Things" were plain frightening..."
THE LATE GREAT JOHN PEEL
"The Pretty Things completely bent my head."

Too bad Brian Pendleton wasn't around to be interviewed for this. He was such a crucial part of the group in their early years
Oh gosh loved this Band as a young girl... So cool.
i want to know too, no one replyed to you yet?
Interesting! What is it about certain rock band drummers? There seems to be a certain... eccentricity (to use a mild description) about men such as Viv Prince, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Ginger Baker and others. Even Charlie Watts, in his understated way, is something of an oddball.
Top R&B garage band, but they quickly went to shit when they jumped on the psychedelia bandwagon.

’The Closer You Get' by Six.By Seven, out now on Beggars Arkive: http://smarturl.it/6x7tcyg
To coincide with the re-release of Six.By Seven’s seminal second album 'The Closer You Get' on February 17th 2017, Beggars Arkive commissioned director Alex Mannion-Jones to produce a documentary 'The Dream Is Sweeter Than The Taste'.
Despite their unique sound, their huge popularity in the music press, endless touring and the efforts of the label, the hype never quite broke through into mainstream success. However, Six. By Seven frontman Chris Olley has always kept the fanbase alive and developed his own ways to distribute music outside of the industry.
The original line up who made 'The Closer You Get' reformed to play sell out shows in their hometown of Nottingham on March 4th and the Garage in London on March 11th 2017.
Directed, filmed & edited by Alex Mannion-Jones
Produced by The Mitcham Submarine
Sound recordist for John Leckie - Fabian Prynn

Brilliant! Pleased to share this with the world, such good music and great intent.
It's brilliant that this band is being celebrated again. Chris is still turning out great stuff on his Kickstarter and MuZiK KluB and TWELVE initiatives which are all well worth checking out.
LOVE Six By Seven - the best band ever to come from Nottingham - FACT!
Excellent band..I'm hooked. Def ahead of their time. Hopeful for the very near future!
