Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck’s Yardbirds Keep A-Rollin’, “Stroll On”

The short-live Page-Beck association lasted less than six months, assembling triplets of unruly death defying acts of studio recorded musical fisticuffs: “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago,” “Psycho Daisies” and “Stroll On.”

Their crowning triumph, “Stroll On,” an unruly overhaul of “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” was featured during a short club sequence in Michaelo Antonioni’s swinging London art flick, Blow Up [see below]. Patients, this cut will hit yer rock 'n roll stethoscopes with fireball force, a sonic meltdown. Yes, the twosome’s double lead wall of racket sounds like a sex act between two consenting locomotives. But this is slashing, doom-laden boogie, a thick flamethrower-swarm of fuzz and feedback on the warpath. The lineup critics referred to as ‘World War Three’ severed ties shortly thereafter.

Take Up Thy Rock 'N Roll Stethoscope and Walk,

Pavlov's audience. They look like they're waiting for a bus until Beck throws 'em a bone!
