Don’t think I own anything by them. I have a few of theses mod/ psych freakbeat boxsets on grapefruit records too.

Double denim Quo:

Looks like they went from Mod to Shag-head 🤣. I don’t care, I love this stuff

@Thin White Duke, just read your blog on monkey jackets, where you state in a paragraph that 60s mods didn't wear denim/trucker jackets.

"I don’t recall seeing any evidence of sixties Mods wearing denim jackets. They may have been worn during the revival but there’s a closer association with Skins, Boot Boys, bikers, scooter boys and heavy metal fans (heavily embroidered). Windcheaters / windbreakers, Harringtons and monkey jackets are a step higher in formality than denim trucker jackets and just look a bit more sharp and polished which suits the Mod aesthetic. Worn with either a polo or Breton shirt, jeans or sta pressts, and desert boots or classic trainers they add a layer against the weather that could work through three seasons in the British climate."

This isn't the case as there are plenty of photos of 60s Mods wearing them, including well known faces.

Have you checked out the Small Faces 60s TV show Colour Me Pop where they play a lot of the Ogdens LP semi live, with Stanley Unwin doing the links. Incidentally one of my fave LPs, it has everything, must have got the album multiple times on different reissues, out takes and everything, but I treasure my copy of the original vinyl, and the CD which came in a tin with beer mats inside.

The longest my hair has been in years... sorry about the leer, 'she' says I look like a pervert. :oops:

I'm desperate to go out in some decent clothes. Been hanging around the house and garden in joggers, flip-flops and a variety of t-shirts I don't care about.

Oh, to be in some decent strides, shoes and shirts... Stay safe, folks. :stirpot:

Check this out.
Nice footage . I think l have seen the crowd scenes before as l'm sure they were used by ITN . Ah , those were the days when you could meet up with your mates , go to cafes , sit in bars , walk along the prom' in groups , all the shops were open , you could even stand in a group in a public place and the rozzers never said 'out . .ah it takes me back , takes me back indeed. .

Always good to see primary sources not some re-imagined rehash but the beach fighting was the death knell of original Mods for me. That (along with RSG I suppose) was when it all broke out from being an elite underground club of clothes and music obsessed adherents, the press got the word, the high street shops jumped on board, and every little knacker around the country looking for a scrap joined up!

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
