Come to Blackpool. Please.

The BBC news is reporting a desperate publicity stunt (sorry, but it is) by the leader of Blackpool Council. According to the report, the Council, whose watch committee banned the group from the town in 1964, are going to write to Mick et al and invite them back.

The BBC’s report says that the watch committee’s decision “has effectively kept the band out of the resort ever since”. That, and the fact that it’s, you know, Blackpool.
