  • Hi Jeremy,

    I was hoping to chat to you about being a 1st generation Mod in the 1960s.

    I work for a TV production company and we're making a doc for BBC4 about British popular music and the youth subcultures that went with it. We want to hear from people that were there at the time. 

    I'm especially keen to find Mods who were a fan of The Who and The Small Faces. 

    Please email me and I can give you some more info: rebeccastewart@7wonder.co.uk



  • Hi Jeremy... No probs, the book has evolved a lot since the 'Mods at the Coast' theme and is now a general 'In their Own Words' book, so if you could email me at the address given I can give you further details. I would really like you ion board. Thanks,



  • Thank you for accepting my friend request, Jeremy! Always great to see another Original on here!

    Love in Mod,

    Bec in Oz!

  • Jeremy, Welcome my friend. Good to have a first generation Mod join. Where you in Norwich as a Mod and what stories can you share with us, do you have any photos and what was it like then? Me and the guys were second generation about 1979 onward and kicking around Glasgow. I'm back home to catch up with the guys next week, so hope to come back with some stories to add.
