The redoubtable George Melly: flamboyant jazz singer, sexually ambiguous raconteur, prodigiously gifted critic. In the early sixties, at the birth of what we now recognise as the pop revolution, Melly began work as a broadsheet journalist, commenting upon this new cultural phenomenon. Revolt into Style (1970) is his first-hand account of those turbulent and exciting years when - be it music, fashion, film, art or literature - everything changed. Central to the book are The Beatles - the epitome of the swinging sixties - who charted the decade's changes, from sharp-suited Merseybeat to glassy-eyed psychedelia. Alongside them is a cast of movers and shakers, of wannabes and taste-makers, all dissected by Melly's surgical mind.
