A Whole Scene Going On covers Barry Fantoni's working - and sometimes not working - life from his first sell-out oneman show in 1963 to the point in the late Sixties when the swinging decade merged into the political unrest of the Seventies.The memoir begins with his early days at Private Eye and his first meeting with Peter Cook, and then covers his work as an illustrator and painter and his television career. From teaching the Sex Pistols how to draw at Croydon Art School and writing a song for Marianne Faithfull to finding a harmonium for Paul McCartney and his lifelong friendship with Ray Davies of the Kinks, Barry's account of the Sixties is a wry and observational gem. The players and the parts they played have been chosen for their genuine contribution to a decade that seems more popular now than it was at the time.
