Yeah..definitely so. The rain was very light , while the amount of quality music was heavy  ;D There was an english DJ, Lucas Gommersall, and he's been fantastic (black and white RnB). Top RnB dancer: Lea from Essex  8)

Nice one mate. Sounds decent. I don't know him really but see Lucas about at stuff over here quite a bit. He is a sharp young lad who has tons of idea compared to many blokes who've supposedly been into this stuff for 30 years. Glad you enjoyed it.

Ian: Yeah as you seemingly well know this lad nails the look all the way as do most of his little crowd too. It doesn't matter how well some of us older guys try to dress if these kids are around they leave you for dead. The bottom line is that they are the right age for the whole 'Mod' thing despite many of us choosing to hang onto aspects of it. They seem to have jumped directly back to that late 50s/early 60s look missing completely the mid 60s Small Faces look or the Revival thing and in doing so look more authentic than I think I ever looked at their age and pretty much everyone I knew too. I came into it in the late 70s through an original Mod in the family and of course, with no hesitation to admit it, The Jam. The mid 80s Mods certainly in London began to dig back to the true roots of it all and did well but these kids are another league in my opinion.

  ...you're right!



Despite my age (and the mid eighties Quadrophenia imprinting) I'm in for the 60-63 look and music. That doesn't prevent me to enjoy the other Mod - related stuff  8)
