About

On April 23, 1960, Lennon and McCartney—having briefly taken flight as the Nerk Twins—played the Fox and Hounds pub in Caversham. Sitting on barstools, the duo performed jazz standards like “The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise” and “How High the Moon” in the style of Les Paul and Mary Ford, before launching into the songs they really wanted to play—numbers like Gene Vincent’s “Be-Bop-a-Lula.”

It was a lovely experience that came from John and I just hitching off down there. At the end of the week, we played in the pub as the Nerk Twins. We even made our own posters.
