Sixties Legend Billy J Kramer Talks to ZANI

Written by
Billy J Kramer ZANI 1

Do you want to know a secret? Billy J Kramer is back and very soon it will be common knowledge, as he has been busy recording a comeback album, which has spawned a single To Liverpool with Love.  A native of Merseyside and now happily residing in New York, yet it seems he has never forgotten his roots, and why should he as he was at the centre of the Merseybeat in the early sixties?  Young northern teenagers inspired by American rock ‘n’ roll artists like Buddy Holly and The Crickets, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and of course Elvis,  making music.

What Makes Weller Run?

In the music business, once you hit 30 you are considered over the hill, and this still applies in the 21st century. As far as middle-aged artists go, very few make an impact on the current generation, with most inclined to live off their back catalogue. They tour the world, coining it in with merchandising sales, and endless re-issues, and deluxe packaging of their greatest hits.

Carol Harrison All Or Nothing

Written by


The Small Faces were one of the coolest bands to come out in the sixties.  Four impeccably dressed lads originally from East London, Steve Marriott (Guitar and Vocals), Ronnie Lane (Bass and Vocals), Kenney Jones (Drums) and Jimmy Winston (Vocals and Keyboards), who was replaced by Ian McLagan in November 1965.


Waiting in line in the chill of late December, I began talking to a few other fans about the inimitable band 'Black Rebel Motorcycle'.

The Redskins – The Power is Yours!

Written by



The Redskins came to me like a bolt of lightning. Arriving at the GLC Jobs For A Change Festival in June 1984, back when Ken Livingstone was a thorn in Thatcher’s arse as the panto villain and the quite brilliant Red Ken (far removed from the more recent muggy Congestion Charge Ken version) and passing loads of upset right wing skinheads crossing Waterloo bridge away from the Jubilee Gardens where the festival was taking place.

So, when in 2013 investor, contributor and fan of ZANI Alan McGee* offered his support to help restyle and relaunch the site it was inevitable that traffic would increase dramatically and continues to grow. *Alan McGee co-founder of Creation Records and new label 359 Music..
