Mod in the media / Re: Mod photos in local papers
« on: March 25, 2013, 09:29:48 AM »
Not a Mod photo, but I've met this woman and a few days ago, she was featured in our local paper, the Ballarat Courier! If Britain has the oldest Mod, we have Sister Luka Kenna at 75-years-young!  ;)

True, Andy. Being the only mod in the village does have its benefits. The Australian ladies seem to like it for starters, haha.

Ditto to that, but I live in the country here in Australia and the locals (or is that yokels?!) think you live in a timewarp! LOL!

if you werent born till 83 you mustve come pretty close to missing Brit pop as well!

May have missed the early stuff around 1991, 92 etc, but got into it from about 1996-1998 at it's height, tbh.

I'm one of the few in this community that would probably rather listen to the record than watch the film.

I'd rather not listen to it or watch it.  :D

That'll be the same for me. Far better films and loads of better albums out there (in my opinion that is). :)

I wasn't born in 1964, 1973 or 1979 or even in the UK for that matter and I certainly didn't get into the Mod culture via Quadrophenia. Sure I identified with some aspects/themes - not fitting in with people, expressing my individualism, etc - but it was hardly the epicentre of Mod to me. I got into Mod via Britpop, but I'm not saying that was Mod either.

Just got to this part:

"A survey carried out in 2003 by ModCulture, the movement's leading website, found that most people using the site had entered the scene during the 1970s revival. It found that 8.3 per cent of its users had become Mods in the 1960s, 53.5 per cent during the punk era, 21.3 per cent in the Britpop years, while a substantial number, 16.9 per cent, were young people who had become Mods in the last ten years".

Hmmm. Not sure how much value there is in a ten year old survey and no mention of how many people took part in this survey. Punk era? What, 1976-77? What constitutes the 1970s revival years? And weren't the Britpop years within ten years of 2003? A load of flannel.

Dave, can you remember anything about this?

I missed that survey! Or is that Mods don't exist outside the UK then?! LOL!

Great cover image there Smiler! October you say?! Just in time for my 30th in November!  ;) I would have loved to have seen your exhibition in Reading... if I didn't live halfway 'cross the world in Australia!  :( From what I saw/read in Scootering and online, you've got a massive collection! Very impressed!

If you're not able to part with the money for Adam of London, Relco seem to do an affordable pair for under half the price. Limited colours, I think too which can be a bummer...
