Aberdare Psychedelic Go-Go Bar Discotheque

It may not have been Haight-Ashbury exactly but in June 1967, at the height of the so-called Summer of Love, Aberdare was in the vanguard of the Welsh psychedelic revolution. Or at least that is what this advert suggests. Unless, of course, psychedelic go-go bar discotheques were ten-a-penny in the Valleys back then. How quaint that Welsh flower children from the upper reaches of the Cynon Valley were only allowed to rattle their love beads until 11.30pm on Saturday nights.
