Thought I would put this under the 'Novelty' category - say something stupid - here goes.
Maybe the Phoenix list was ultimately responsible for the demise of the scene mid to late 80s (maybe not) but it's aspirations were noble - the execution of those aspirations weren't so noble in the end.
The Phoenix list, despite the faults it later developed, was just what the mod scene needed at the time - it was a unifying force.
Do we need a web equivalent?
There are so many good mod related websites (and few piss poor ones too) but it's just so fractured.
Is there a need for a one-stop site where all events can be viewed? A site where it's just up to date events - no banter - there's plenty of that already.
Is there anybody man enough? I don't possess the skills (or motivation).
