British Pop in the 1930s.

  • Tom Larham

Whilst dark forces were gathering on the continent, Brits were enjoying the best output of Black American artists and songwriters. This little known period of progressive popular optimism is often overshadowed by the famous figures of death and hatred; Mosley, Hitler and Mussolini, repressive nationalism catching the winds of history. All too powerful an image but the untold story of Europe's first true multiculturalism, the multiculturalism of international pop music, visiting artists and their impact of advertising, screen and stage is one tale worth telling.

An as yet unfished work, in progress.
