Essential reading for all those who were there and the many more who wished they were., 16 April 2014
Growing up in 1960's South West London, I was old enough to appreciate the Mod scene but too young to get into the action. I loved the clothes, but couldn't afford them... and my big brother's fashionable threads were much too large for me. I loved the music, though, and would spend hours playing Steve's collection of Jazz, R&B, Motown and Blue Beat on his Dansette Debonaire.
So, I was eagerly awaiting the publication of Paul's 'Mods: The New Religion' and certainly not disappointed when it finally arrived. The book is a genuine labour of love, taking the reader through a trip back in time highlighting the music, the fashions and the people that defined the Mod era. The reader is accompanied on this journey by faces from the past who provide wonderfully descriptive anecdotes of what it meant to be truly 'Mod'.
Beautifully illustrated and excellently collated, this is essential reading for all those who were there and the many more who wished they were.
