So you’re the Gladsaxe Teen Club in suburban Copenhagen, you’ve been raising money for forever for your annual ball, and you have a signed contract for the appearance by The Yardbirds….but how’s THIS for a kick in the ass? Instead of The Yardbirds for whom you’ve paid today’s equivalent of $6500, you get these four clowns calling themselves The NEW Yardbirds, three of whom you’ve never even heard of. What kind of rip-off were they trying to pull??? Where they even any good????

Well, it turns out that they were pretty good. “The music continued to ring nicely in the ears for some time after the curtains were drawn after their show,” reported the Teen Club’s magazine the next month. “We can therefore conclude that the new YARDBIRDS are at least as good as the old ones were.”

Great story and many more pictures here.
