“A memento from 20 Forthlin Road one damp and foggy late-November night in 1958. At the end of a riotous recording session, Derek Hodkin helps John, Paul and George come up with a new name:
The Ravens is the only name underlined, so it was probably favourite for a while, but the last of the five evidently sparked a new mode of thinking because, above all of them – in larger letters, dominant – Hodkin wrote JAPAGE 3. The Japage 3 had their debut at brother Harry Harrison’s wedding reception in the saloon bar of Childwall Abbey Hotel, 20 December 1958.” Lewisohn, Mark.
