Mod fashion and style / How many shirts - is too many?
« on: October 07, 2016, 05:02:15 PM »
Just had a rough count up and not including shirts in the wash/ironing, and definitely not including polo shirts/smedleys with collars etc, I've got 42.

Is there such a thing as too many?  :)

Films / TV / New McQeen film

Saw Ned Boulting (ITV Sport) mention this the other day

This is what he had to say - "This film is in the pipeline, and it it's anything like other stuff this team has made, it will blow you away."

Just had an email drop about this book which may be of interest to some

Featuring: John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, Roland Kirk, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Alice Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Leon Thomas, Cecil Taylor and more!
The 100s of stunning photographs in this new deluxe large format hardback book capture the radicalism and self- determination of pioneering jazz artists in the 1960s and early 1970s
During this era, jazz music in the USA was in an almost constant state of revolution with the music and lives of African-American artists radicalised by civil rights, the avant garde, Black Power and a new spiritual awakening.
At the start of the 1960s, jazz entered a unique new period of revolution as African-American musicians re-defined the art form in the context of the civil rights movement, afro-centric rhythm and thought and an ideology of black economic empowerment.
John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler and others developed a new cosmology of sound that was as revolutionary as the social and political changes that took place in America throughout the decade. From the musical explorations of John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor and Ornette Coleman, to the collective and community concerns of Chicagos Advancement for Creative Musicians and the black science fiction of Sun Ra, the new jazz musicians created a musical and cultural landscape from which jazz music never looked back.
This large-format deluxe hardback book features hundreds of stunning photographs of the new jazz musicians in the USA throughout the 1960s presented with introductory essay and biographies on the many artists included in the book.

Mod in the media / John Smedley Factory on the news
« on: February 14, 2014, 05:49:03 AM »
Stretching the mod link maybe too far but there was a piece on the BBC News channel yesterday about pensions filmed from the John Smedley factory.

Interesting in that it showed as a backdrop the manufacturing process etc.

All I could find so far is this which is only a snapshot of the piece yesterday but still shows the fine people of Smedley's hard at work
