Vote for Mark Wynter- and sink Britain
26 April 2002 | by OctSee all my reviews

Before Milton Subotsky went into low-budget horror, he made several Britpop exploitation titles including "Rock, Rock, Rock" as early as 1956 and "It's Trad, Dad" which came just too late to catch the traditional jazz revival in 1963. In the same year "Just for Fun" somewhat prophetically foresaw a Swinging Britain in which teens get the vote- it happened a few years later- and use it to take over the country, which at the finish is shown sinking beneath the waves. In the meantime, a gaggle of popsters trailing behind the Beatles, Cliff Richard or the Rolling Stones in popularity do their stuff: some are well worth preserving, such as Jet Harris & Tony Meehan and Ketty Lester. Reggie Beckwith, the camp fellow with the high-pitched voice, also figured in the most notorious Britpop entry, "Gonks Go Beat". And then he died.
