    • Ok, I checked this; I think I need that album!

    • Suppose it's about time to have a closer look at Mr Reed; heard a lot of good about him but never got round yet to give him a proper listen...

    • A listen will reward you well Kai, nice album with gospel influences. 

    • Yes, agreed, Snow!


    • 1948918548?profile=RESIZE_930xIn that case, here's my current turntable offering.

    • Can't beat a bit of Motown!

  • Getting a bit bumpy on here. isn't it ? I mean, mods with attitude, whatever next ?

    As one of those 'old mods' born so long ago you must all think when we saw a seaside fight it featured William The Conqueror and Harold, I would say that although 'mod' may well have now become (or maybe that's a bit of a fantasy, too) a universal collective movement of love, harmony, respect and a desire to run the world, that is actually nothing to do with mod. Mod is mostly style; not all mods liked each other, there wasn't some kind of special glue that held them all together - the name of the game was being an individual and eventually that's why it disappeared. It was a skyrocket, not a long-term project - whoosh, one brilliant soaring slash across a dark sky. After a while,  you thought to take a step back and try and see where it's headed - you are, believe it or not, a little older than you were a couple of years ago. What I think people tried to do was keep their likes and dislikes - even their passions - and fit them into their chaging lives. Some couldn't and they either became casualties (plenty of temptations around) or just got stuck on a carousel. Carousels are alright but eventually you notice you're surrounded by children; thing is to get off when the music changes.

    So when did it all change? Ask some old mod, dribbling and drooling; you'll get a different answer from each one. With any luck they'll piss you off no end - attitude, see ?

    • I know Ernie, whoever would have thought it. Every now and then a handbags type argument breaks out and then before you know it people go back to their cup of Tetley with a chocolate digestive and act adult again. Some very pertinent points there. I love the scene and going to nights out with likeminded people but it most certainly was not always that way. In Glasgow we had some pretty serious trouble between different Mod teams. We were all young and daft then and that probably just about explains it. 

      I am doubtful about Mod ever again becoming a youth scene the way it was in the early to mid 60s or the late 70s early 80s, but if it is to it may have to die out and come back again instead of lingering on as a pursuit for people who were first into it many decades ago.

    • Ha-ha, no arguments Ernie, just every now and again, they will be a disagreement, all quite normal, after all, it simply wouldn't do if everyone agreed with everyone, on everything. I for one would never lose my respect for the guys on here, who have, in my opinion became my friends. Facebook however, is a different matter, some real gobshites on there, claim to be part of the Mod thing too, one or two have gave me some proper verbal, called me some detrimental names too.....Ha-ha, never mind though, their names are burnt into my memory, a nasty shock awaits them, should I ever catch up with them at an event ;-)
