One view of mod only I'm afraid,
This review is from: Mod: Clean Living Under Very Difficult Circumstances - A Very British Phenomenon (Paperback)
An interesting book and worth owning - until you get to 1979! I suspect Terry Rawlings doesn't like or know anything about black music since the whole last section of the book is a concerted attempt to downplay the vital importance of soul/r'n'b events to the mod lifestlye. Yes, bands like the Chords were a big deal for about 10 seconds but then (thank god) anyone with an ounce of taste and sense discovered that 60s soul and r'n'b was really where it was at - and you didn't have to be an elitist to get into it contrary to what some think. The guy should have interviewed someone like Randy Cozens for a proper view of things. And, Terry, mods actually did exist in large numbers outside London!

Finger-poppin' Daddy - you are so right, about should have interviewed Randy Cozens for a proper view of things.

Well, I think Terry Rawlings got it spot on about 1979. Are there Mods outside London, lol?!
