  • You've opened up a hornets nest there !!!!!! You will get lots of us old guys on here telling you different stuff and then disagreeing with each other. Could be quite funny though.

    Firstly keep her away from the film Quadrophenia, it is totally a fairy tale and the main character isn't like any real mod I've ever known.

    Books: 2 titles well known by us lot here, 'Mods' 1979 by Richard Barnes. Reprinted in 1991.

    'MOD' by Terry Rawlings, (mine says copyright 2000, don't know if that's the original date of issue)

    A couple of others: 'The Sharper Word' 1999, redone 2009, Paolo Hewitt.

    'The Soul Stylists' again Paolo Hewitt year 2000 but redone in 2008.  


    Hope that helps. my misses just called me for dinner so must go, Cheers, John
