Books and other printed media / Scootering Magazine - Jump the Gun feature
« on: November 27, 2020, 09:29:52 AM »
There's a nice 3-page feature on JtG that appears in the current edition of Scootering magazine, exploring the shop's history, clothing range and future plans.

A nice, positive piece about the shop and I'm sure Adam is pleased with the outcome.

Films / TV / Long Hot Summers: The Story of the Style Council

There seems to have been an increased focus on TSC over recent months, what with compilation albums and books, etc, well it looks like Sky are also getting in on the act.  The above documentary is scheduled for airing on the Sky Arts channel on Saturday 31st October at 9pm.  If you don't have access to the Sky Arts channel (and live in the UK) apparently it's also being aired on Freeview channel 11.

If TSC are your thing, it might be worth watching; I'll certainly be setting the record button on my old Betamax  ;)

I'm not sure if this book has been discussed on here previously but a copy just landed on my doormat this morning.

I know PW is not to everyone's taste but if you are interested, this quite meaty tome is available for a knockdown price of 15+p&p from the following website:  I'm not sure how much it was retailing for initially, but I think this is a significant discount.

It's split into 3 sections covering his Jam, Style Council and solo years, and features many never seen before images.  If you've got any interest in the Modfather  8) then this might be worth checking out.



Films / TV / Talking Pictures TV

I've mentioned this TV channel in another recent post (re: the Lambretta documentary), however the main Modculture site has highlighted a number of other recent, and forthcoming programmes on this channel, and I thought it worthy of its own topic where we might share details of forthcoming programmes that might be of interest to people on here.

Looking ahead, the following programmes might be of interest:
Sunday 14th June at 10:45 - 'Forever Vespa' documentary (Italian documentary so probably with subtitles unless overdubbed)
Followed by 'Be My Guest' - 1960s movie featuring Steve Marriott
Sunday 14th June at 10pm - 'Smashing Time', 1967 movie featuring Rita Tushingham

I'll try to keep a lookout for any others that look interesting.


Banter / RIP Bell (Sheffield)
« on: May 19, 2020, 03:25:39 PM »
I don't know if anybody on here will know him, but I've heard the really sad news that Bell died last night after a long illness. 

He has been a stalwart on the Yorkshire Mod scene since at least the mid-80s (that's when I first met him anyway) and will be sadly missed by many.  Obviously with the current situation, there will only be a family funeral, with plans for memorial at some point post-lockdown.


Mod fashion and style / Britac Shirts
« on: May 18, 2020, 10:13:44 AM »
I've seen their shirts advertised on the main Modculture Forum, but I've never actually bought anything from them. 

I wondered if anybody had any experience of buying from them and what the quality of their shirts are like.  I'm not keen on the logo embroidered onto the pocket, but might be prepared to overlook it for a couple of their designs. 

Any comments from anyone?

Not sure if anyone overseas can access this channel but tomorrow morning at 10.30am they're showing a programme charting the beginnings of the Lambretta scooter.

Might be worth a watch.

Upcoming mod events / 3Keys Modernist Weekender, Skegness
« on: October 01, 2019, 12:09:51 PM »
Just seen the above weekender advertised for the penultimate weekend in May 2020, and wondered if anybody on here had been before.

Not been to an out-and-out 'mod' do since the Pow Wow nights in Sheffield about 13 years ago, so not really sure what to expect.

Any comments gratefully received.


Upcoming mod events / Edinburgh this weekend

Up in Edinburgh this weekend. Is there anything remotely mod-related happening that I might take in whilst up there?


Mod fashion and style / Colin Starsmore tailors - Sheffield
« on: October 05, 2016, 05:17:19 PM »
I've not used Colin for a few years and wondered if anybody knows if he is still open for business. Looking to get a new suit made and thought I would give him a try again.
