A Mods Mod

As much as I like the swinging 60's look on a girl, this straight hard look has always been my kinda girl. What's your favourite look, 60's swing, straight butch or as they say both ways? And girls please feel free to join in on your look for the…

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…

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…

    "I like just about all the Mod girl looks. The short hair that mirrored the guys cut looks brilliant combined with the excellent gear, but my favourite would be the classic bob hairdo, either short or the longer version. Have always thought it looked…"

    "If you're from outside London or don't know your way around the 'Smoke', here's an interesting historical, heritage, mod club and gig guide of the 60's worth getting. It's also a nice pocket size so you don't look like a tourist, just don't hang a p…"

    "Don Wilkerson - Camp Meetin' on Blue Note followed by Little Willie John - Fever on King. I couldn't find a decent copy of Stanley Turrentine - Trouble (No.2) but it lead me onto Willie John's cut of Fever. Apparently he hated the song and refused t…"

    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.…
