Ghoulish Delight #5: Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson
Just look at Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson doing the fabulous prog/folk/psych number ‘Witch’s Promise’ on Top of the Pops in 1970!
Look at him! He’s like a mad combination of Rasputin and someone you might see on Time Team! He’s singing about a witch, as well. Stick this on at your Halloween party and it’ll go down a treat… Or a trick?
If only they hadÂ performances like this on Top of the Pops these days. If only they had Top of the Pops these days.
I remember watching this on Sounds of the Seventies on BBC2 in about 1990. “Mummy?” I said. “Who is that weird man with the flute?” I think she told me to shut up.
What are they going to have on Sounds of the Noughties? Fucking Paloma Faith, that’s what.
Anyway, here’s Jethro Tull; scary, hairy men singing about witches.
