About Me:

I'm having a Mod life crisis, going to gigs, (Booker T, The Specials (twice), Paul Weller, Small Fakers, Secret Affair, Geno, Purple Hearts and The Lambrettas), and buying clothes! What a year! Like 1980 in Cumbernauld all over again. I missed the Glasgow Mod scene in the 80s, but I was there for The Jam, The Kinks and The Style Council at the Glasgow Apollo. Great times!

Top 5 tunes at the moment:

Too Much Monkey Business - The Yardbirds The Night - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons Hitch Hike - Marvin Gaye She Shot a Hole (in my Soul) - Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band Mickey's Monkey - Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

Vespa, Lambretta or other?

1962 Vespa Douglas Sportique
