Books and other printed media / Start Mod zine returns
« on: January 04, 2021, 05:52:41 PM »
Respected Mod zine Start has launched its new issue

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Start-fanzine-64-pages-of-style-and-music-in-full-technicolour/324411927896?hash=item4b88752d58:g:omcAAOSwnKlf0e1O

I picked it up - thought it was great! Superb photography and some nice features too

Looking forward to more!

Side note, between Start, the new Detail mag, Heavy Soul (new issue out now), Sharpen Up, and the Spirit of 69 skin zine, the landscape for zines / DIY publishing is the healthiest it's been in some time!

Anyone watched this Netflix series?

Not Mod, but some of the clothes are fantastic, and the soundtrack - Georgie Fame! Donovon! The Kinks! Shocking Blue! - is wicked too...

Mod fashion and style / Best clothes purchase in 2020...?
« on: January 04, 2021, 05:48:36 PM »
Been a very strange year...

What clothes purchases stand out for you?

Have to say, in terms of pure enjoyment (and wear) I've loved my cord lace ups from Mod Shoes - cracking footwear

Books and other printed media / New issue of Subba Culture out now

Issue 8!

Well worth picking up - the zine has always had a great angle on Mod / related scenes, this one is no different

Excellent Q&A with Smiler about his new book Scorcha, on skinhead, suedehead etc

Can be found here - https://streetstylescenes.co.uk/product/subbaculture-zine-8/

General music chat / Toots Hibbert RIP

Such sad news...  :'(

Where to begin with his catalogue? Supplied more Mod and skinhead dancefloor cuts than most, just an inexhaustible supply of gold.

Thought a thread for all these Facebook live stream DJ sets might be handy...

Le Beat Bespoke running a (very good) psych event right now - https://www.facebook.com/lebeatbespoke/

There's a virtual 100 Club night running on March 28th too - https://www.facebook.com/6tsRhythmAndSoul/

Imagine both will be archived!

So:

Coronavirus.

A lot of us will be working from home, and I'm finding that I opt for comfort - loose clothes etc etc - over style

Any tips from people who do it regularly on how to keep standards high?

As it seems like we'll be spending a lot of time indoors for the next few weeks and months...
