"Thanks Stan, There are of course others, but that's what I put on the internet. For my money, The Dave Clark Five's Glad All Over has to be the No. 1 most "Mod song there", and a personal favourite, even today."

THE PRINTED WORD

Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo. Having finished "Get Carter" by Ted Lewis over the…

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet! I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I…
