This is probably more for those original mods of us around. Why were certain groups of us classed as so called Hard Mods, what does this mean?, i don't understand. Ok we never backed out of fights that's true, we never let anyone push us around especially the police or the leather boys. We didn't wreck private property or telephone boxes etc. A lot of the big fights Brighton, Hastings,Clacton, were the work of the press and tv winding everyone up, so through the press there was always a bit of bad blood. I think that at the end of the sixties people were so used to mods being around, when the skinheads arrived on the scene with their baseball bats and boots, we mods were tarred with the same brush.But Hard MODS looking for trouble all the time we were'nt, ha, what with the music,the pills, and the ?????????????/ we didn't have time. It would be nice to hear the reaction from some of the original MODS.
