I hear you, Mark, though in my defence I am a member of the organisation that owns 52% of DFC 1883 so, y'know...

We've just beaten Ashington 1-0 if anyone can top that...

By The Sea's record is excellent. Really good. That, Broadcast's "Berberian Sound Studio", Unknown Mortal Orchestra's "II" and a bit of Mott The Hoople have been entertaining me this week.

Doc Martins (sic) and a khaki jacket...?

I suspect I'll be rocking better clobber if I make 69.

I liked the way it showed a key part of being a mod was that you still had your own dress style to look a bit different, not like fads these days when everyone has to wear exactly the same item.

Though, irony of ironies, a lot of the blokes dress the same as one another in the film.

It's fun as an 'angst teen' film and as a heavy-fisted way to look at schizophrenia via a film inspired by a 70s rock album, but as a 'mod' film it has many, many failings for me.

I'm one of the few in this community that would probably rather listen to the record than watch the film.

Last two were Eugenie, Her Journey Into Perversion (which was terrible) and Daughters of Darkness (which was great).

Like Darlington, Pompey have had a but if a fall. Currently in the League 1 relegation spots waiting for our 10 points deduction. League 2 next year sadly ........ But we are looking like we will be community owned at last and all the leeches and thieves gone from our club.

Amen to that. Our CIC (Club In Community) has just taken 52% ownership of Darlo.

Darlo have gone from League 2 to the Northern League since the old forum closed down.

Beat that.

Well, well, well...

Vogue have a moddy looking girl on the cover (not to mention the name "EDIE" on there, too...) and I'm posting on a Modculture forum.

Is it 1997 all over again?  ;)

Nice to have this back.
