Not all of it Mod relevant perhaps, but certainly of interest to some round these parts...

Would love a photobook purely of knitwear from those 50s / 60s communities, some of the pics are incredible

Mod fashion and style / Mikkel Rude

Been hearing a few rumours about supremely gifted Mod/skin shirtmaker Mikkel Rude...

Has he stopped / is about to stop making clothes? Anyone know?

Facebook is only updated sporadically...

Hello!


Made it a New Year's resolution to kick off a mix series, so here's the first part of Soulful Sundays:

Raucous rhythm 'n' blues, sassy soul for dancers - ft. John Lee Hooker, Freddy King, Baby Washington, Dinah Washington + loads more. V much for the Mod persuasion! Hope you enjoy!

Hello!

Anyone wear Clarks Weavers?

Quite tempted by these in the Sales, but put off by that hefty sole... how are they to wear?

General music chat / Magnus Carlson
« on: October 27, 2017, 08:04:00 PM »
Anyone else spotted Swedish singer Magnus Carlson?

Played before the latest Crossfire allnighter in London - band + vocalist were incredible, very Northern Soul in places but with a fuller, grittier sound.

Recently released an album called 'The Northern Soul Sessions' which is on Spotify - sounds a little like this though... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22w_-Kfoa_8

Would recommend for fans of Daptone, James Hunter - really good live sound!

Mod fashion and style / Varsity sweaters
« on: September 05, 2017, 08:13:33 PM »
Maybe it's the colder weather today but I'm definitely thinking about layers...

Anyone else a fan of varsity sweaters?

Vintage ones can be hard to come by, but this manufacturer in the States looks fairly classic:

Any other outlets people could recommend?

Hello!


Had the pleasure of DJing at Hot Jam up in Inverness at the weekend - the sets were actually recorded...

https://www.mixcloud.com/lokomotivrosco/robin-murray-set-1-hot-jam-2-may-2015/

Plenty of R&B, gritty soul and other tasty options in there... and past sets from residents / guests to peruse, too!
