Today I pay tribute to Peter Gordon, a member of 60s British pop duo The Marbles, who scored an international hit with the song ‘Only One Woman‘. Peter, who passed away this past week, immigrated to Australia in the 1950s where he became friends with the Bee Gees when they were first starting out. Peter played lead guitar on some early Bee Gees songs before relocating back to England and eventually forming The Marbles with his cousin Graham. Thanks to Peter Foldy for letting the listeners know about this wonderful act from a golden-age of pop music.
The First Nations self determination Idle No More movement is gaining momentum in Canada so this week is a great time to revisit the interview with inspiring First Nations blues musician Murray Porter. “Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water.” (idlenomore.com)
