"There are certain historical personages who were active in furthering the causes of Chappism when it was still considered too radical a movement to openly ally oneself with. Those were the dark days of McCartneyism, when long-hairs and drug-addicted rock musicians persecuted those in possession of elegant clothes or trim moustaches. The Committee for the Investigation of Unbeatnik Activities drew up an extensive list, known as the 'Uncool List', of high-profile actors, musicians and artists. Anybody who enjoyed wearing well-pressed trousers, smoking a pipe and drinking Earl Grey tea, instead of snorting marijuana and fouling their flared trousers, was added to the list.
McCartneyism spread like a nasty virus throughout every branch of the arts, and it is fair to say that these industries suffered as a result."
