Tailor Made Mod Suit

I'm off to Thailand this month and I thought it would be a great excuse to get a few things tailor made for my 'mod' outlook. I've never really been able to afford a tailor made suit and if I did I'd have no real idea as what to ask for to get a…

Amazing B sides

Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already…

What I bought today...

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…

Books

I thought it would be worthwhile to start a new discussion on books. To narrow it down a bit, I suggest we stick to the more or less mod- related books; I wouldn´t want to bother you with each and every novel I´ve read. Among the ones I´ve read…

    "I'd go along with what Chris says here, just add that the most important thing is that it fits properly. Some tailors skimp on bespoke work so make sure that when you've got the jacket it doesn't pull at the shoulder seams when you cross your arms;…"

    A SUBURBAN MOD'S FORGOTTEN STORY Part 3

     

    LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

    Pete Townshend  may have been good at putting Mod feelings into words (the first couple of years anyway), but his group were never big favourites of my generation (pardon the pun).  When it came to British bands, for us it was always Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames, Zoot Money & The Big Roll Band or Chris Farlowe & The Thunderbirds that we would go out of our way to see.…
