Gary Megson, he's your man.

You rate him, Dave? He has a decent track record in the Championship, but he seems to get sacked quite a lot?? It's a difficult one, we need a long-term plan to get back into the Prem and be able to compete there. But is a manager with Prem experience going to drop a division or, if he's not in work, was he sacked for not cutting it in the Prem?  :-\

Music for sale or wanted / Re: Mod record label - home of The Strypes
« on: March 20, 2013, 10:31:13 AM »
Having bought both the Button Up (featuring a rather splendid cover of Bert's Apple Crumble) and Strypes EPs from these guys, I can vouch for them being an excellent label to buy from. The vinyl comes well packaged and protected and I think both purchases arrived within a couple of days of placing the order. Nice one Adam, keep up the good work  8)

Mod fashion and style / Re: 50 shades of mod
« on: March 20, 2013, 10:20:54 AM »
I think I'm probably a 4(ish) with a smattering of 3 and a pinch of 2 (specifically love of the Jam) thrown into the mix. The parka, badged or unbadged, is a definite no-no for me. Horrible, shapeless item, in my opinion.

Being such a broadchurch(!!), I think most modernists do indeed cherry-pick from some or all of the various 'strands' to arrive at their own unique interpretation of what Mod is

8). Who is Leeds new manager ??   MoT/Mod

I was hoping it was going to be Adkins, but it seems he's on his way to Reading  >:(

If that is the case, I'd like Poyet or (and this is perhaps controversial) Solksjaer! MoT/Mod

Scoots and scootering / Vespa Cable Covers
« on: March 14, 2013, 02:16:29 PM »
The cable cover on my PX is, quite possibly, the original from '84 and is a bit tatty and frayed. Anyone know where I could pick up a length of two tone (pref cream/black)?

Thanks

Nick

I play guitar and harmonica (blues harp) and have a band that does original music.  I own Fenders mostly (Telecasters) but own a Gibson Les Paul Jr as well.

Anywhere we can listen to your sounds, Wayne?

Have a listen at loneshark.bandcamp.com

While not specifically "mod friendly" the sounds do have a bit of Stones and Faces. The album was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2011 which was quite fun.

Wayne

I will, mate, thanks for that. A flavour of the Faces and the Stones, what's not to like?? And a Grammy nomination, tip top!!  8)

Two classics, that'll do for me!!  ;D

The new Johnny Marr; musically great, lyically and vocally so-so. In my opinion


Agree fully with this. Could of been a brilliant album but just good for me. He was great live though last week.

I can see why he wanted to put an album out in his own name, but I reckon he needs a song-writing foil, and a vocalist. That's good to hear, off to see him in Belfast in a couple of weeks time; if he plays How Soon is Now, I'll go home happy!!  ;D
