Just to throw my two cents :
"It was 1959. I was 14, at a battle of the bands competition. I saw three guys there, they had Tony Curtis haircuts, were wearing bum-freezer jackets, cutaway collar shirts, slim Jim ties, tapered trousers, winkle-pickers with side laces. I went up to them and asked: "Why are you dressed like that?" They said: "We're modernists." I didn't know what that meant but I thought, I'm going to be a modernist."
