Diary of a 60's Cover Band (Blog)

We have now added an incredible new song to our repertoire from one of the most influential US psychedelic bands of the 60's, Vanilla Fudge. It's their 1967 upside down version of the hit by the Supremes "You Keep Me Hanging On". Check it out!

Last year we added the astonishing song "Something in the Air", recorded in 1969 by the one hit wonder band Thunderclap Newman. They were put together by Pete Townsend around a drug addled drummer (Speedy Keene) and an eccentric jazz pianist (Thunderclap Newman). The song has a killer middle instrumental section.

Our most requested song is "Everlovin' Man" by The Loved Ones. We added this song in 2006 in honour of the late great Gerry Humphries. Dennis does the most astonishing version you've heard bar the original. See him in action here. 

Remember the 60's?

The 60's were an exciting, revolutionary, turbulent time of great social and technological change: assassination, unforgettable fashion, new musical styles, Camelot, civil rights, women's liberation, a controversial and divisive war in Vietnam, the first manned landing on the moon, peace marches, World's Fairs, flower power, great TV and film and sexual freedom.

Please note:
The Substitutes are based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
