Pan’s People – Ghetto Child

Top of the Pops, 11 October 1973
Pan’s People dance to Ghetto Child by the Detroit Spinners.

Kenny Everett introduces a fairly subdued performance from Pan’s People, in burgundy-red flared jumpsuits.

American readers might find the band’s name here confusing: called simply “The Spinners” at home (and in the rest of the world too, I expect), their name had to be expanded to “The Detroit Spinners” in the UK, to avoid confusion with our home-grown, woolly-jumpered, blood-giving Scouse Folkies.
