1967

Alcohol is "out" - too old fashioned. Today's switched-on youth are into pot and pills. They're turned on, tuned in and dropped out.

In their mod/pop/op styles they au go-go the night away to rock bands with bizarre names, the weirder the better: Big Brother & The Holding Company, The Freudian Slips, The Velvet Underground, Jefferson's Airplane, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Ultimate Spinach, Charlie & The Chaplains. Special fave-raves at the hippest discotheques this month is a "fuzz-box" group, Vanilla Fudge.

Only in 1967, kids! Only in 1967!
