The Swinging Blue Jeans: Follow That Tent...

Keith Altham, Fabulous, 1 August 1964

For "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun" read "Maddogs and Englishmen and The Swinging Blue Jeans and Keith Altham go out in the mid-day rain." However, nothing can dampen the Jeans' spirit and due to their good humour and a comedy interlude from a guy called "Rob" whom you will meet in the article, a good day's camping was enjoyed by all.
