BTW, I've always thought that "To love somebody" lends itself particularly well to soul vocalists, as the Nina Simone's cover aptly shows.

Now, to the "new" PP Arnold's album review...

If I remember correctly Barry & Robin Gibb wrote "To Love Somebody" (at the request of Robert Stigwood) for Otis - But he tragically died before having a chance to record the song.

Recently received the two latest offerings from Jason Brummell's Suave Collective Publishing .... quite enjoyed jason Disley's Mod Noir effort "7 Day Fool" and currently thoroughly enjoying my friend Dave Dry's wittily written recollections of modding about in West London in the 60s ... "My Generation"

Highly Recommended :)

I'd give Sherry's a swerve unless you enjoy being hassled the second you walk through the door.

Seconded  >:(

My Uncle was an early '60s London Mod and photos of him from then through to about '67 he looks amazing but as the decade wore on he looks like a Woodstock reject and into the '70s ....Jason King!

It's amazing: as the 70s dawned, people that just a few years back dressed faultlessly turned into clowns overnight. The sheeps' flock effect, I guess.

Or perhaps they embraced change.

I must say, I hope being a moderator on a section of the forum containing a thread titled "Grooming" doesn't get me placed on the Sex Offenders Register ;)

It is a bit of a sad indictment of our times that a perfectly innocent word has a new definition that is a bit more sinister. ?

Isn't it just ?

C,mon everybody

With the August Bank Holiday NUTS do at the Komedia being sold out already, why not treat yourself to tickets for the The Modesty Anniversary Party & join us at Al Duomo, 7 Pavilion Buildings, Brighton on August 26th to celebrate 10 years of Modesty nights at the Brighton Weekender at the only "Smart Dress Only" event of the weekend?

Featuring a stunning line up of top DJs (..... oh & me!) in a cool basement club underneath an Italian Restaurant (what could be more mod than that?)
