I was a modernist frequenting Ronny Scotts in Gerrard Street,The Marquee and Flamingo when they were jazz clubs. I had a college boy haircut, wore Italian style bum freezer suits,winkle picker shoes,collar detached shirt with starched collar and a slim jim tie. I still have my membership card for Ronny Scotts.It was the first jazz club in London to get an alcohol licence it cost £5, which was ok because it meant we didn't have to get out early to have a drink before we went to the club. It did not occur to me that I had anything in common with the kids who went down the coast for a punch up on Bank Holiday. My daughter is a mod and has got me back into the more mainstream way of dressing and feels my memories and comments may be of interest. We shall see.
