'Beatlemania!' (Skinny Fit)
Sorry, this item is currently unavailable.
Peter Stringfellow, founder and owner of The Mojo Club, booked the Beatles - a band creating a stir on the music scene in Liverpool - originally to play his first music club and forerunner to The Mojo, The Black Cat Club.
In between Stringfellow booking the band and the night of the concert, The Beatles had their first number one with 'Please Please Me', and screaming, shouting, hair-pulling Beatlemania swept the country.
The police suggested Stringfellow move the gig to accommodate the demand for tickets, so he booked the Azena Ballroom on the outskirts of Sheffield. Brian Epstein, the Beatles' manager, also upped the price from the first agreed price of £65 to £90, as, he said, they had a record in the charts now. (Stringfellow later managed to haggle him down to £85).
On February the 11th, the day before the Azena Ballroom gig, The Beatles recorded the remaining 10 tracks that would make up their debut album - all in one day. On the 12th they were in Sheffield for the gig. Stringfellow had sold 2000 tickets for the show - the Azena's capacity was 500, and a further estimated 1000 people turned up on the night to try their luck. It was bedlam.
Amazingly, The Beatles also played another gig in Oldham that same day.
The Beatles also autographed the wall backstage at The Azena Ballroom. When the ballroom was converted into a supermarket years later, it was rumoured that The Beatles’ signatures still remained on a wall in the back of the supermarket.
As if this wasn't enough to claim this poster and poster T-Shirts place in music and Beatles history - another legend has grown around this design.
Clearly and unmistakably the poster shows The Beatles famous dropped T logo - but The Beatles didn't start using this logo officially until May 1963 - a good few months after this posters design. At the time of the gig The Beatles were using their 'Bug' logo.
Other stories of the origin of the logo date it to Ivor Arbitor who allegedly designed the logo for Ringo Starr's drum kit - but this was in April 1963!
So could this be the actual genesis of the famous logo? The answer still remains a mystery.
