In December 1966 the UFO Club opened in Tottenham Court Road, and this picture is of the membership card filled in by staff as we queued down the stairs to the basement on the opening night. Strange sounds came from below, and me and an American friend finally got in. Psychedelic posers stood about, but we were amazed by the strange band playing on the low stage – The Pink Floyd. What a sound! Add to that there was the wonderful Robert Wyatt backed The Soft Machine as well. Loud, serious music. The membership lasted a year, longer then John Hopkin’s and Joe Boyd’s club!
