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 :)

C,mon everybody
