Let's A Go Go!

Dig this groovy little surf ditty from Charlie and His Go-Go Boys 1965 album Twist Shake A Go Go: Let's A Go Go!

In the Sixties, Mainland China was busy with the Cultural Revolution, which branded Rock & Roll as a sign of Western decadence. Nevertheless, the "Beat Wave" hit big in two Chinese territories that remained open to British influence, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The Beatles concert in Hong Kong in 1964 marked the birth of the golden age of the Hong Kong pop scene. As a result a great number of bands appeared from 1964 to 1969.
