On Rock’n’Roll Friday, here’s Adam…

No. 37: Blowup (1966)

Adam writes…

In yesterday’s contribution to The Great London movies series (catch up with that post on The Jokers [1967] HERE) my chum Richard IV also mentioned Blowup, the Antonioni film from 1966. His passing suggestion that it was a somewhat po-faced affair is difficult to disagree with 40-and-some years on – but I feel compelled to add it to our list for its memorable performance by The Yardbirds.

It is Rock’n’Roll London day, after all. Here’s the trailer…

And here are The Yardbirds with Beck and Page in their scene from the movie…

And heres our own film…!
