Leeds, West Yorkshire

About Me:

50 year old 2nd generation Mod; born with 'modernism' in my veins thanks to 1st generation TV175 riding parents with a love for clothes, dancing and music. First memory is of wearing matching pink Levis cord jacket and white polo neck top at the age of 5 with dad - never looked back. Seeing The Jam at the legendary Wolverhampton Civic Hall in 1978 and watching Quadrophenia every night for a week at the local cinema just 'clinched the deal'! Love Northern Soul and luckily now live in Leeds which boasts some great venues including The Ritz in Brighouse. Own a recently restored Li125 Special called 'Crazy Banana' who I showed for the first time at Scarborough rally this year. Listen to The Small Faces, The Action, Love Affair and any Northern Soul. Just come back from seeing Weller in Edinburgh and was lucky enough to get in the after show party which was DJ'd by Andy Lewis - fantastic night!

Top 5 tunes at the moment:

Seven Day Fool - Etta James Seventh Son - Georgie Fame Bend Me Shake Me - The American Breed Young Mod's Forgotten Story - The Impressions My Baby Likes to Boogaloo - Don Gardner

Vespa, Lambretta or other?

Lambretta Li125 Special and 1972 Vespa Douglas 150

  • A massive, massive thank you to Neil Lee for putting-on another fantastic event at the Faversham in Leeds over the weekend; absolutely loved it Neil. Well done, top bloke... more please!

  • Just wanted to say how very, very sad I feel about the passing of a 'small mountain' and the loss of sweet, kind, funny and fantastically talented Macca; subtle, sublime and understated genius... he has now 'left us on the debris' but won't ever, ever be forgotten - thank you Mac!

    Ade - Leeds
