Python Lee Jackson: I idolize you (1965, Rare Australian TV-footage)
We love Australian 60’s bands! Here’s another obscurity:
The original Python Lee Jackson was formed in December 1965, in Sydney by two British men – singer Frank Kennington and guitarist Mick Liber (born in Peebles, Scotland, on 1 March 1944) – after meeting drummer David Montgomery (born September 1945 in Melbourne). Together with bass player Roy James they played the underground circuit. In early 1966 Kennington deported back to the UK, and former Missing Links singer Bob Brady filled in for several months before Liber and Montgomery struck on the idea of putting a new version together.
“I Idolize you” is a cool cover of Ike and Tina Turner’s song from 1961.
