THE DEL-VETTS - LIFE MAGAZINE 1966



Pictured in Chicago wearing the latest mod threads that 1966 had to offer...

Back in 2000 Fortune & Maltese and the Phabulous Pallbearers paid homage to The Del-Vetts by having their picture taken at the same spot and using it to adorn their 'Sonic Sounds From Seattle' EP on Dionysus.

  1. Wow - never seen a picture! Always loved 'Last Time Around'. Somehow expected them to look a bit grubbier for some reason, they're rather neat!

  2. I know, they're very smart for an American garage band considering that they were still teenage students. I've got another picture from the same location from some months later and they're wearing different gear but standing in the same positions. (more or less)...their hair has grown a tad longer

    I'll update the picture to go with this one.

    1. Ah thanks, that's a great pic too - slightly more what I expected, must be the extra inches on the hair! Hadn't realised they were so young. The one (is it the same one?) on the left obviously likes his brolly... Must go and listen to LTA again now, not done so in ages!

    2. Just added a picture of Fortune & Maltese from the exact same spot in Chicago 34 years later.

  3. If someone had told me that the Del-Vetts were once pictured on the cover of LIFE magazine, I would've said "no f**king way!"...

    Yet, there they are... lookin' sharp as hell. Thanks for sharing!
