But for how long, I don't know. I've paid out for a year, but we'll see how things progress ot see if it goes any longer.

Anyway, on a more positive note, feel free to introduce (or reintroduce) yourself here...

And we are back...........It has  been a while. Hopefully people will keep it civil, relevant to the topic and not just be about trying to flog something. Hi my name is Ozy Pete and I have an unhealthy addiction to check button down shirts, expensive shirts, knitwear  and jackets. And yes this is the right forum for this. Take care, OP.

Went to the Reading Steady Go exhibition which revived the dormant mod in me. I wonder what ever happened to my old Sportique? Anyway, I now spend my retirement obsessing about button down collars, lapel widths, buttons, shoes, ties, trouser lengths and all the rest. Think I need a quite lie down now.

Hi everyone!

I'm Amanda, other wise known by my 'alter ego,' DJ Penny Lane. I've lurked around here before a while back, but figured now is a good a time as ever to get back into it.

I host a weekly Mod radio show called Punks in Parkas. I've been on the air since 2005 and broadcast live every Thursday evening at 9 PM CST from 101.5 UMFM in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada). My show is also hosted on a great internet radio station called Wake The Nation (http://wtnradio.wix.com/wtn). You can also subscribe via Podomatic or iTunes (just search for Punks in Parkas).

Talk soon!

Great to see forum and so many of the old forumees back...

I'm Jason and into Modernism, tailored clothes, leather soled shoes, and style for the sake of it. (From Art Deco to Vespas)

I love nights out with friends dancing to Soul music and nights in dancing with my daughter stood on my feet.

I enjoy being creative either through music, poetry or writing; I am an author of one Mod-related novel with a second due for completion shortly. See www.allaboutmygirl.co.uk for details...

Afternoon all, good to have the forum back. I'm Matt, Spurs fan & ale enthusiast, formerley of Chippenham, although have been in Cardiff for the last 14 years. Not overly active these days other than the odd local night & getting out and about on the Lambretta. Still love The Look & the tunes though.
Will be good to keep up with things on here.


Hello mate. Good to see you on here!

Ay up. Mod living in arctic circumstances, ie. Finland. I'd be lost without my parka, as you can well imagine! I don't believe there are any other "Finnish mods" about. You see we Finns are a bit backward with these things.

I'm an anglophile, meaning that I prefer the British and English culture (Irish as well if asked) and language, etc. I feel that British culture is more close to my identity than Finnish ever has been.

I've gotten a lot of people telling me that it's such a fortune to live in a country so idyllic (I live in the middle of an actual forest) but I don't think so. Life can get quite hard here at times, but that's what this clean living was invented for, right?

Cheers.

Hello all,

Long time listener, first time caller...

Like many of the poor souls on here, I spent a long time lurking on the old forum; for me t'was an invaluable resource for clothing envy/cleaning tips and the like.

Hopefully will try and post a bit more in this incarnation! (mainly for fear of getting my membership rejected...)

Hello everyone,

My name is Sal, I'm new to the Mod world just a little over half a year strong, I love everything to do with Brit subcultures from Mod to Skins and from original Casuals  to the Britpop scene in the 90's. I'm a Mexican-American yank located in Northern California (San Jose) and I hope to continue to learn more about the Mod culture and also contribute to the forum. If your from my area contact me so we can associate and expand that scene here in Northern California. 
Cheers!

Not really a mod but like a lot of the cross over stuff. This forum was always good for that.  Here's hoping it picks up where it left off. Sort of.

I was a member of the previous forum but left before it's demise due to all the bickering.

I hope that this time around that doesn't occur & that feedback can be constructive (if you can't be constructive and polite then don't say owt!)

...because this was the best forum on't net (bickerers aside) & I learned a lot (& hope to do so again).

Well done Dave for giving it another shot.

Hi, good to see the forum back. Im Pekko, from Helsinki, Finland. First joined the first forum back in 2001 or 2002, then the second one. Good to see some familiar names here.

Ay up. Mod living in arctic circumstances, ie. Finland. I'd be lost without my parka, as you can well imagine! I don't believe there are any other "Finnish mods" about. You see we Finns are a bit backward with these things.

Hi. I dont know where you live, but there are a few Mods here, at least in Helsinki, but theyre all getting on a bit, think Im the youngest at 34  8). Plenty of mod/mod friendly (the latter are usually better) nights in Helsinki, you can hear R&B, Northern, Popcorn, Dancefloor Jazz, Ye-Ye etc played out somewhere every weekend really, theres a monthly ska/early reggae club as well. My favourite clubs are Soul Sides (Hki) and Soul Seed (Turku), they usually have some great foreign guest DJs too. And the Wahoo dancefloor jazz events are fantastic, those boys the grooviest 45s ever. The Helsinki Northern Soul Club was always a good night too. There is also a long established scooter scene here.

See and know lots of younger indie/football casual "modish" types too.  6 or 7 of my football casual/skin mates have vintage Lambrettas and Vespas, wear a Baracuta and desert boots one day and a Stone Island or vintage Fila number the next, but they wouldnt class themselves as mods though. Quite a few proper skinheads too, not the far right nazi scum.

There was a small scene in the 80s as well, here are the Herttoniemi (a Hki suburb) Mods in all their glory, Jam shoes, white socks and parkas et all  ;)

Hi to you too. Good passions to have, those! When I first started getting into this in 1995 (through Quadrophenia as you do LOL, it was on the telly), there was no internet and finding good clothing, as well as information, took a lot of hard work and dedication.  Its much easier these days. If youre on a budget, you can always find good stuff on eBay. I dont do thrift stores much these days but theyre worth a visit, they often have some nice blazers and coats in stock, then take it to an alterations place and you could have a nice piece of clothing for a very cheap price. And UFF for example, they always have some nice 60s style Italian knitted tops, cycling shirts etc. As for records, there are always bargains to be had in the record shops of the major cities , and you can sometimes strike gold on Discogs and eBay.

Many of you will know Ivy Heikki from MC/Talk Ivy, no doubt the old bugger will be posting photos of his latest outfits here very soon  :D

Hi All

I was an occasional poster on the old forum, very occasional!

Ive been into the mod scene since i was about 14, I was 40 last year. I just never grew out of it really, but then great taste never goes out of fashion does it?

I got my first scooter last year courtesy of my wife for my 40th ( a dream come true really as id never been able to save enough for one previously), its  a series 3 LI125 (Now 175). I DJ in Birmingham occasianly at a bar in a place called moseley, i'm into jazz, soul and funk and thats what i play - late 50's/60's to present. I dont really do many mod clubs as i tend to go to Northern Soul do's mainly. Living near the black country theres always lots of them on too, although we do try to get to the stoke allnighter each quarter.

Looking forward to contributing!

Steve  ;)

Great to see the forum back, I have been keeping up with Mod Banter on the Mod Generation which is also a great Mod site but as a Modculturite for most of this century its good to back on Mod Culture.

I am a 50 year old who got into Mod when the revival started in 1978, in those days I used to live on the edge of Brighton (a stones throw away from where the Amex Stadium is) and used to hang about with the Lewes Mods. I now live in Tunbridge Wells and work in London. I ride a Lambretta SX150 (when the weather is nice) and attend a few Mod events a year such as going to gigs, club nights and ride outs.

Noticed a lot of the old names are back and look forward to being informed and exchanging friendly banter.

Hi all,
Like many I have read the original forum but did not post.

I first got into the Mod scene back in 79 starting with Purple Hearts, Chords and the Jam but was also into Madness, Specials, The Beat, Selecter (who I have recently DJ'd for) and Dexy's. I soon progressed to Tamla, Northern Soul, R&B, Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, 60s bands such as Kinks, Small Faces, The Animals, The Action, Yardbirds etc. Like many of the time, I started wearing dodgy sta-prest, tassled loafers, fred perrys mixed with charity shop 60s clothes. My mum (an original stylist) and uncle (an original Mod) put me right on a few things!!. Owned three scooters at one time but now drive a car. Later flirted with more of a soul boy image and went to a lot of Northern Soul nights, also got into Acid Jazz then some of the 90s bands such as Ocean Colour Scene and always a Weller fan.

These days, I can spend more money on the clothes I always wanted and suppose, style wise, I am a mixture of Mod and Suedehead. I still collect music, mostly  Blues, Mod Jazz, Ska, Rocksteady, early R&B, early Soul but I am also a big fan of Ska Cubano, The Dualers and the Rifles.

Confessions, love a bit of early Rock 'n' Roll and many Indie bands.

Neil...we saw you at The Strypes gig sneaking out early.....you were quite a bit away from me and by the time i realised it was you,you were gone.
It was a skirmish...nothing more,a pub near the train station on a corner.....can't remember the name but it wouldn't have had the riot police out!

Hi, my name is Phil, known as Leeboy to my nearest and dearest. I got into all things mod in the late 70's after punk fizzled out, loved the Jam, Chords and Purple Hearts and went to gigs in Dunstable and surroundings to see the two tone bands. As his scene died down I looked back to the sixties for inspiration getting into the Who, Faces etc and listened to the more rock based stuff. Even progressed to the more psych stuff like Hendrix, Doors etc. which led God help me onto heavy rock! Managed to pull myself back from the brink and now there are some decent bands around again have regained interest in the more 60's orientated stuff like the Strypes. Sound a bit like Dr Feelgood who I saw at the Cali Ballroom in Dunstable in 1979. Also taking a liking to Northern Soul- just need to learn how to dance properly now!
Keep the faith - great forum.

Just signed up today because I like the ModCulture site so much! I'd like to say that I'll be contributing a lot to the forums, but that may be difficult due to time and amount of other social media avenues out there right now.

But, if there's a good conversation going, I'll probably chime in.

Been into this stuff for a long time, and still love the culture! I run a silly blog from an old-man American viewpoint.

Dig all kinds of music (soul, r&b, freakbeat, psych, country, folk, jazz, acid jazz, funk, some hip-hop), but oddly enough, I'm not that into brit-pop or revival. Clothes are a mix of early, mid, late '60s with a touch of modern thrown in.

That's pretty much it. Oh, duh, name is Carlos P.!

Only just found out the forum is back. Great news. Used to spend hours reading all the postings. Missed the banter and the catch up with everyone, made so many great friends through Modculture.
Anyway, its James from Cardiff here. User name of Red Fox taken from my first scooter back in 1980.
I run Cafe A Go Go in Cardiff. First night back in 1982, ran for 2 years .On the back of the mod revival we went along the path of psychedelia. The first night had over 300 people turn up. Ran its course. Started club back up in 2005 and being going ever since. Had run monthly nights for a number of years in various venues. In recent times have concentrated on promoting bands and run the Cafe nights in conjunction with these.
Very healthy scene here at the moment, friend of mine will be writing up a City Guide soon.

Afternoon all,

As I appear to be posting occasionally now (after several years of lurking on the old site without contributing anything) I though it would be polite to introduce myself.

My name is Ian and I live down in sunny Somerset. I'm celebrating an (old) milestone birthday this year so please be gentle with me. Suffice to say I don't quite remember the 60s scene but have been actively enjoying the mod ways since the late 70s.

I was lucky enough to spend 15 years of my life working for various record labels so music is a massive part of my life which is why some of my listening choices may appear a little eclectic at times!

I missed this forum so much when it went on a sabbatical but have appreciated all of your input from afar and really glad it's back again

Cheers

Ian p

Post by: An Unseen Scene on June 05, 2013, 10:35:01 PM
Hi everyone this is Coyley from Nottingham.  Just discovered the forum is back.  I've been a Modernist since the very early 80s (Mod revival onwards as a young Mod kid in the Nottingham scene) and, now primarily into the roots and evolution of the style, design and music as a 44 year old.  I'm interested in and explore Ivy League style, jazz, soul, blues and related music, mid-century modern design/art and that inspired by it.   At the Talk Ivy forum I'm known as Square End Knitted Tie and A Scene Unseen.   My look is aspiring to a modern version of the late 50s Ivy look or the late '60s Suedehead equivalent.   No obvious 'Mod' logos, nothing too 'scene', but still sharp, evolving and contemporary.   I've written on the scene and northern soul in the past, did sleeve notes for compilation reissues, ran a psych-folk music service called 'The Unbroken Circle' online, organised gigs and now still collect and promote soulful Mod music.    I've also been gradually changing my house to a subtle Modernist style over the years.

I work all over so I don't get much time to get out so spend time socialising with a small group of like minded souls, digging out vintage and new clothing where ever I can find it..   During the thirty years Mod has taken me through the scene, into northern soul, funk, folk, early deep house, Philly/modern soul, back again and so much more.   I'm now exploring modern art, furniture, housing design that is at the heart of Modernism.   Over recent months I have been reading back through the Soho novels of the 1950s that point the way to the scene documented from Absolute Beginners onwards.   My older friends were Nottingham and Sheffield Mods from the Dungeon, Boat Club, Mojo and then Twisted Wheel days.   

I look forward to contributing and welcome anyone getting in touch.  I try to celebrate and learn about the scene's past with a lot of reading and research while moving forward and trying to walk a modern path.

Hello all, I was on the old forums under the guise of "servetakid". I am nearly 20 now, so dont think it quite suited me any more.

To be totally honest, I am more interested in the scooter scene/scooterist thing and soul record collection than the mod thing these days. However, I still have a soft spot for decent clothing and I am on the look out for some new bits and bats.

Any way, its good to see some familier user names on here!

I've been involved with the Mod scene since the early 80's. In the past I've DJ'd/promoted Mod events Beignning with the pelican RnB club in 1986, my most recent club was called Right-Now, based in Notts which ended in 2011.
Having a young family means I don't get out as much as I'd like, but I still enjoy all aspects of this wonderfull life style.
The forum is a great place to keep up with what's happening on the scene.

Hi I've been posting for a bit so this is a bit late but anyhoo...

From Enfield, London and I got into Mod around 1985 with my mates who were in a band called XL. Went to various Mod rallies (Lowestoft etc), clubs like Sneakers when it was on gt Portland Street and The Bizz down by London Bridge. Then moved to Manchester where I knew no-one in the scene and from there to York where I hung out with York scooter club for a bit. Fell out of the scene and got into techno raving (still am) during the nineties but decided I needed to smarten up and got back into dressing well (ieMod). Now living in Walthamstow. More of a clothes Mod than anything else.

Hi to all Forum members old and new.....Boy, its great to have this forum back :)

I'm Lee, from South Wales, been a mod since 82/83, wandered off into the indie/baggy/dance scenes for a few years between 89 and 92, only to reappear in late 93, had a scooter for a few years but since it was stolen in 99 I've not bought another one.   Lived all over UK and abroad and have made some lifelong friends thanks to the mod/skinhead/soul and scooter scene  - and this forum...

Clothes, Music, women, whisky and Football (Cardiff City) still remain my biggest passions (though not necessarily in that order)

Currently residing in Abu Dhabi, UAE  - Looking forward to my trip back next weekend for the Manchester Mod Weekender and catching up with old friends and meeting some new ones - If you're there come and say hi - I'll be the short, bald bloke, probably found propping up the bar with some mancunian and liverpudllian mates :)

Clothes, music, football and a light ale or two are my passions in life (and the fiance, of course).
Clothes wise over the last couple of years I've gone for a mix of Ivy and Suede/Skin.
On the music front it's ska/reggae and soul. With bands it's all the obvious, Who, Small Faces etc.

Hello all,
Good to see the forum is back. I used to lurk on the old one but I've decided to participate a bit more on this one. I started off in 1980 at the tender age of 11 listening to The Jam and Two Tone stuff, wearing cheap tassle loafers and an even cheaper harrington jacket ( it's all me mum could afford). Currently spending my spare time riding and repairing a 1962 Series 2 Lambretta which seems to break down a lot!

Musicwise I'm one for the old and new - currently enjoying Nick Waterhouse, Tame Impala and 60's Brit psyche. Northern Soul does me head in though and I never want to hear The Snake again.

Hoping to enjoy the posts, contribute when I can and learn something new.

Hey folks - Dan from Maidenhead here, introducing meself a wee bit late, but better than late than never eh? Like Lord James and many of us I suspect, it was the Two-Tone pop that was in the charts when I was a whippersnapper that got me into our scene. And here I've been ever since pretty much, the odd flirtation with 60s garage-inspired indie (MBV etc) and Britpop notwithstanding. Mainly get my fix these days from tup-thumping at mod events. Quite happy with that though!

Hello all.

Was a mod revivalist, then Casual in early 80s. Never lost the interest, but at 45 would never refer to myself as a mod. Mod influenced / inspired perhaps. Too many things out there to be experienced to be pigeon-holed!

Bit of a born again cyclist (MAMIL!), so will keep an eye on the cycling page.

More of a lurker, but the success of the forum relies on contribution. Was on the other forum, but a few spoilt it for the many. New forum seems to have avoided them. Hope it continues that way.

I like clothes,

This is a good thing; clothing is invariably useful in countering the North's inclement weather, it is equally invaluable when avoiding charges of indecent exposure. As we all spend so much time wearing clothing, I find it extremely odd that more people are not as obsessed as myself.

I loitered on the on the old forum under the same name, this will not mean much as I don't recall posting anything although I did buy a bunch of stuff from Neil Lee - cheers Neil.

WARNING, INCOMING NONNER ALERT. Although people around me do use, amongst many other positive/negative terms, Mod when describing me, I do not use it when doing the same, probably an age thing. For me, as I was not involved in the scene when I was younger, I am avoiding the mid life crisis/Jurassic Parka connotations (at least in my own mind). I love the look, but don't like making it too obvious.

In my youth I was into the punk scene, this mutated over time into skinhead which in turn led to a fascination with the sixties. This is where I find myself now, growing old disgracefully with a head full of kitchen sink dramas, Jazz, Ska, RnB, cracking design and sharp clothes, let's not forget the sharp clothes.

I hope my meanderings entertain you all as much as yours have me.

Oh, missed this thread...

I'm Daniil from Berlin, Germany. Since I came in contact with subculture(skinhead, mod) at the age of 11 I developed a greater interest in fashion and music. But as a 20 year-old student while doing my "Abitur" (a levels) theres not much money left for fashion and records. But when the rent is paid and the fridge is half full I try to grab bargains on records and fashion. And spend the rest of the money on the weekend and my girlfriend.

I'm into Ivy League style and classic Americana, like a neat mod look, too but getting more and more interested in early 70s skinhead style.
For music it's soul! Souly R&B, classic northern, modern, crossover - everything good! Jazz, rock steady, reggae, funk and some garage or psychedelic, too.

I'm up for a good time here!

Hi all,

24 year old male from Devon.

Been interested in music & clothes since I was about 14, wouldn't say the Mod bug had bitten until about 18 months ago though. What I love about the Mod scene is that, despite all my interest, research, record buying & book reading there is still so much more to learn about the whole scene.

Never fails to amaze me that I will go to a Mod night and every time discover a new record or two by some obscure '60s beat group or West Coast garage band. I absolutely love how I still have so much more to discover. I guess the originals would call me a ticket!

I would - respectfully - say "balls" to that ticket lark, as I look on you with nothing but envy.
It's all ahead of you  and as you say, there is so much out there - it would be weird to know it all.  Have a listen to opinions and recommendations and see where your taste takes you - don't think you have to follow well-trodden paths step-by-step.

Agree with Soulstar - I'm now in my mid forties and been a Mod obsessive for pretty much all my life and it's exactly that new record, new band, new detail, new item of clothing that I love most about Mod!

Hello everyone!
 
My name is Classic and Im a longtime reader of this forum. Now I finally decided to register and to bore you all to death with this brief introduction.
 
I am from Germany and style is essential to me in every part of my life. My preferred direction of clothing is undogmatic, relaxed and classic Ivy League. But please dont confuse "undogmatic" with the trendy slim fitting-too short jackets, wannabe-ivy/fake-preppy rubbish, you see on tons of Tumblrs nowadays. Ok, I might be a little dogmatic.
 
I collect vinyl records (Jazz, Soul, all things 60s), Im a mid-century modern freak (furniture, achitecture, etc.) and I enjoy good books, good food, whisky, gin and champagne. As for sports, Im into skiing and sailing. I also run a little Tumblr myself: aguycalledclassic.tumblr.com
 
Thats all for now. Please dont hesitate to ask questions.

Hi im neil from northampton been lurking for a few weeks awaiting approval. Im up to date with what you've all been wearing since the forum restarting  ;) some very nice threads and good advice in that thread  :D
Im 44 was a rude boy at ten then progresssed to mod but got disallusioned with the attitude on the scene back in the late 80's and drifted away into the indie music scene. Still kept my love of the music and clothes which goes round in a cycle for me. Which is quite handy as i dont throw away any of my clothes so can keep dragging the good ones out again.Over the last few years i've discovered the joys of DNA and mendoza which has hurt my bank account no end  ;) ;D 
Love my scooters (bajaj) vespa sprint,and a lammy series one,also into my aircooled vw's got both an early 60's splitscreen bus and a early 60's bug. Money pits the lot of them  ;D
Hope i can constructivley contribute to the forum now im on  ;)

I not sure whether I should be described as a "Newbie" as I was on the "national" (GB) mod scene from 1985 and the European mod scene from the mid 1990s.
Over the past few years my time has been taken up with 3 jobs, marriage and fatherhood, hence there are very rare sightings of myself.
I also make virtual appearances as "Civilskinhead" on other social media!

Only just found this forum again , after it disappeared for a wee while but I was a big fan of the previous incarnation and it is good to see many of the original posters are back on here. .
I have been around the scene since the late 7ts and once ran a famous scooter club in the Renfrewshire area.
Still loving the photies on the WAYWT thread. Keep it up guys. .

Finally been given the go ahead with the admin on this forum, I've been waiting to join for ages!

In the early to mid 80s mod was the spring board in to the world of clothes and music for me so despite having moved on from mod by about 1986, mod is very much part of my cultural DNA to this day.
I do still like and wear well made and classic clothes but I've never liked Soul and can just about listen to a handful of R&B.
I also consider myself living in the here and now and have no time for nostalgia. Being a father of two, a husband with a full time job and a mortgage, why live in the past when I have so much going on now?

Anyway, I'm hoping to have the time to chip in when ever I get the opportunity, like I say, mod's a big part of me culturally and I am still interested to this day.

As correctly pointed out by DrGonzo2411 I failed to introduce myself before posting an item im selling.  So apologies there. 

Im Steve, been a member of the forum since 2013 but not posted anything before.

Always been into the mod scene ever since my dad used to tell me about his days in the 60s.  Always grown up with the music and also loved the fashions which are regularly connected to Mods.

Anyway hope this short intro appeases DrGonzo2411 for my earlier error.  Hope to post a lot more often (a lot less sales pitches though) and talk with like minded people.

Cheers

Steve

Post by: Red Steve on December 01, 2015, 10:50:40 AM
You'll need to set up something like a Photobucket account then any pics you take will need to be uploaded to the account. From there it's easy as you just copy and paste the relevant IMG code.

I find the below site handy - no account setup needed:

Title: Re: So...the forum is back....introduce yourself!
Post by: Trotsky on December 01, 2015, 03:57:46 PM
The steps to go through are:

1. Get a photobucket account
2. Take photos
3. Upload them to your photobucket account
4. There is a section next to the photo which says SHARE THIS PHOTO
    Click on the direct box and it should go yellow and say "copied"
5. Open the Modculture page you want to post on and write what you want to say. Then click on the icon with the Mona Lisa. It will give you two sets of brackets [img][img]
6. Right click in between the brackets and paste the link to your photo
7. Go to preview to see if it has worked. If it hasn't then you probably haven't copied the link. Try again and this time make sure you actually click on the direct bit and saw "copied"

Title: Re: So...the forum is back....introduce yourself!
Post by: greenstreet on December 02, 2015, 10:26:00 AM
Yes, but the easier way is to use Imgur.com: no account required and you can edit the images too. Just upload the pic you want to post and edit it as you like so the size become manageable and you don't end up with a huge image.

When that's done, just look to the right of the screen, where they offer you links to share the image, click on the "Message boards and forums" link and copy it in your post (no need for the Mona Lisa brackets). Check the "preview" button and you should see the pic posted. 

Haven't tried postimage.org myself, but I guess it's very similar.

Assuming he is, Neil.
He lives in Melbourne & I'm in Adelaide, this is a massive country, hope it stays that way.

Facebook has certainly been responsible for the reduction of involvement in these specialty Forums.

I was a Mod between 79 and 87. After some soul searching and drink, settled down to family life. Apart from attending a club in Chatham , 10 years ago, haven't touched the scene at all.
Still listen to most of the music but mainly into freakbeat and psyche. Also love folk now, especially acid folk.
Got to admit, mainly here to locate any old mates,particularly Danny Hannel and Shane Cox but will chip in to various topics all the same.

Welcome, Mo, you must be roughly my age and I guess your story is similar to many of us here. I'm a folk fan too, mainly british folk and folk-rock (John Renbourn, Davy Graham, the Soho bunch).

Fairport Convention (especially when Ian Matthews was with them) and Pentangle are more to my tastes than the ISB, tho' I have some of their LPs; in fact the term "acid folk" suits them to a T, but the vocals and arrangements are that tad too far out for me.

Found that as I've aged , I've slightly mellowed in some of my musical tastes. Not to say that I don't dig ' in ya face' stuff as some or most of the freakbeat tracks I like , knock you sideways. Immense power. But I'm just at home listening to the Wyrd folk. All Alice in Wonderland on mushrooms,ha ha. 😀 
The likes of Renbourn and Davy Graham really ' get ' me. The ISB I think are a acquired taste.

I guess my main post-youth-discovery has been jazz. That's a huge world in itself, so I've concentrated my efforts in classic hard bop and soul jazz, tho' I can enjoy Ornette Coleman/Albert Ayler/Art Ensemble of Chicago-type stuff when in the right mood.

More than mellowing my tastes, I'd say age and experience have broadened them. But I still get goose bumps when I hear "The witch" or "My generation".

Hello all. Just joined. Been lurking on here for sometime hoping that the forum would re-open, so when David kindly offered to open the forum  I joined straightaway. I am probably what you would call a "born again" mod. A bit about me: I was into the revivalist scene in the early 80's and then moved into the full on scooterist scene during the mid 80's to early 90's. Indie/festival/britpop scene during 90's. Got into Italian superbikes during nougties. My son came along so ditched the bikes-too many close calls. A few years back started to think more about the "old days" and moved more into the style I used to wear and here I am. Now just turned 50. I'm not into the mod music scene or going to clubs, bit old now. You'll find me suited and booted during the week for work, mainly JTG suits and shirts along with Adam shirts also. Weekend more likely knitted polo/button through from AGC, 511 or Uniqlo jeans and Clarks or Loake dessies. Musically all the staples, soul, northern, typical mod (SF, Kinks, Who) but also other stuff too-love early Black Keys for example. Into Gibson and Martin guitars. Oh, and just put deposit on first Lambretta for 27 years, 1960 Series 2 LI. Cheers, Mark

Welcome aboard, Mark. I'd say your back story is fairly similar to a lot of guys on here, perhaps with the exception of the Italian superbikes! Clothes, music and scoots, what it's all about, mate. Be sure to post a pic or two of the 'new' Lammy in the scooter thread when you get her!!

Thanks for welcome guys. Doc, yep, will post pic of Series 2 when I get her. Nothing special, it's been in Uk since 1990 and owned by same couple. On the road and fairly original, will need respray sometime in the not to distant future. Never had a Series 2, always slimstyle for me in the 80's, I loved Italian GPs then, couldn't afford one now though. On the bike front, I had 2 748s, and a 749s. Lovely bikes. Did have Mille as well, but that was a beast! Cheers

Used to LOVE hard bop. Had a financial crisis a few years back and HAD to sell almost my entire collection of jazz. Was gutted.  Made up with some Mod Jazz albums and a few others since though.

Hello everyone,

very happy to be here - I have been lurking here for quite a while but can finally join myself. I am approaching 50 and live in a smallish village. I was surrounded by revival mods in school but was never one myself although I liked a lot of the music, have been drifting more towards the whole thing as the years have gone by. Im still a complete newbie so cant take part in intricate discussions about various B-sides. Since I was a teenager with no affiliations I have never labelled myself a mod and it feels a bit late to start doing that now, also I live far away from any sixties action so I can only observe it from the sidelines. Hope to be able to contribute something to the discussions anyway.

Hello Steve,

I havent really followed what happened in music lately Im afraid so my tastes got stuck about 10-15 years ago. I like Weller including his newer more out there material - I never really clicked with the aggression of punk so Im more into what hes doing now than his work with The Jam although there were some amazing songs back then. A lot of the artists from The Britpop era I find really good - Blur, Pulp (very clever stuff!), Supergrass (very clever as well and Run is a fantastic piece of Beatles/Floyd-like writing), Echobelly and various other. Last thing I listened to on the player was Richard Hawley. Ive taken down some names from various mod podcasts that I got to check out - i dont really buy albums at the moment since the shelves are nearly full and the wallet empty but streaming is great.
Older music are the usual suspects - Beatles, Who, sixties pop/rock more than soul. Im very fond of The Move, both the earlier singles and the later more album orientated stuff. I listen to some jazz and classical music as well.
Clothes wise I dress more like Oasis than Small Faces - the untucked shirt and trousers look but when I wear things from DNA or other "mod-friendly" labels I often get compliments so that seems to be a look which appeals to people outside The Cult as well. I recently bought a paisley shirt that looks like something out of a psychedelic nightmare but I like loud stuff, Im not a great talker so that might make up for it.

If so, RM, you should make and exception to your "no spending" rule and get the new Move comp out there, "Magnetic waves of sound", not just for the music -the usual warhorses-, but for a 2nd disc that houses some 20 clips (TV appearances mainly, but also a promotional clip for "I can hear the grass grow") of the band in their prime. Worth every penny.

RM and Greenstreet

Huge Move fan here.  Have bought most of the best of a's and b's albums over the years.

Have heard about the magnetic waves of sound.  Is it a must have purchase?

IMO yes, Stan. The clips are essential stuff, some playbacks aside they're mainly live (vocals anyway) and the versions differ from the recorded ones. Image quality is more than decent and the promo film for I can hear the grass grow is delightful, dated and silly as it is.

Just Googled.

Disc 1, well, I must have this covered on vinyl and cd times over.

Disc 2 though, am thinking this looks good.  Bang goes my Euro-vision night this Saturday!!!!!

Ohh Curly, where's your girly? where's she gone?.  Damn, that's a fine ear worm!!!

Great song! One of the most underrated from them, maybe because it wasn't a hit.

Going back to my original intro, does anyone know the whereabouts of Danny Hannel,Shane Cox and Trevor French? Are they still about? Are they members of this forum? It's been 30 years and I'd LOVE to catch up with them.

Saw (& chatted with) Trevor in Rimini  in 2014  when The Clique reformed specially for the 30th (& last ever) Italian Job.

Is Trevor still on the scene at all ?
