Hooray! This year a variation on the constant pop groups of last year. After a bit of record player trouble we were able to watch the "Alley Set" dance two numbers - one lively and the other woven around "The Sounds of Silence".
Next, "Shud-Killer" singing two "Who" numbers, even copying their guitar smashing antics.
After we had recovered we were treated to "Kaptain Spastic, Riccardo Glockenspiel and the Four Piece Band Plus Friend", singing Dylan and pretty well they did it too.
"The Lance Fuzz Orchestra" was almost a combination of the last two but besides "Let It Be" sang a self-written song.
Anyone who left before the "1913 Humpmobile Assorted Jug Band" missed something. Most of the audience enjoyed this because it was something different - a bash at originality. Their smug comments on the school (especially teachers) paid off. They won.
Whatever the standard, the Amateur Hour was worth it because it extracted $140 as a pre-fete effort
