Recorded at Olympic Studios in Barnes in 1968, Forest Gate-born Steve Marriott, and Ronnie Lane, born in Plaistow, wrote the psychedelic pop/music hall ‘Lazy Sunday’ about feuds with neighbours.

The Small Faces filmed a ‘Lazy Sunday’ promo at the home of drummer Kenney Jones’ parents on Havering Street in Stepney, east London.

A commemorative plaque on Carnaby Street (below) honours the Small Faces and manager Don Arden.
