Thread: Mod Revival

  1. #1

    Default Mod Revival

    Anyone remember the brief Mod revival of the late 70s, probably due to the popularity of Quadrophenia? Yes, I got caught up in it a bit and had a parka and Mod haircut. I didn't wear a suit and sadly never had a Lambretta...and I certainly never went down to Brighton for scraps with any Rockers.

    I can not recall it Staffslad but I know of the film with the amazingly talented Phil Daniels in it (who I know more of as the irritating but iconcic Kevin Wicks) on EastEnders - Circa 2006-07-ish

    I recall at School we all wanted to be like Paul Weller - hence wearing our ties thin side out as Paul often wore a skinny tie that resembled the 60s era and that we copied his hair too. I don't know - but think it'd be say to say he was the kind of guy people would copy as opposed to the great John Travolta if you had lesser money to attain the look, though as well I'm unsure if Paul was a mod - but I think it'd be say to say he was, as he certainly was'nt Ska/Punk etc in my opinion!

    I remember the mod revival, people wearing parkas, brogues and sta press etc. We lived near Southend so often saw the groups down there.
    During the early 60s my dad was a rocker and often recalls tales of going from London to Brighton and Southend to "beat up skinny mods".
    When us kids arrived his fighting days ended (mostly) so moving to the coast was less of a problem.

    There were also some bands that sprang up during the Mod revival of the late 70s such as The Lambrettas and Secret Affair. If I remember correctly, The Who's early songs from the original Mod era also became popular again.

    I remember it well but I've never been a copyist, so did not buy into the fashion
