When you look at the original Mod scene. it spawned some amount of talent in terms of what these people went onto produce, Bowie, Rod Stewart, Marc Bolan, The Who, Kinks.

Bowie was a top Mod, his hair was perfect in his Mod day in my opinion and was quoted in Terry Rawling's excellent Book on Mods saying that the Mods of 1965/66 who listened to The Who weren't Mods to him. Mod was sharp mohair suits with a soundtrack of modern jazz and R'n'B. Anything outside that rigid categories didn't cut it with him.

some great pics there.
cool as feck.
that last pic is iconic, i often thought looking at it.
the only one that does'nt look like a true Mod is Daltrey.
where as with Marriot, Rod and plonk it was effortless

Always checkout the shoes

There is some nice snaps there, It years since I looked at that Mods book must dig it out.

Have to admit I like a bit of Bowie's work and not just that early stuff , 

 Cant help Think about me form that early part of his career is a top tune.

Hope Purple Hearts play it at Mod Fest

Yep I'll agree there Collie, top tune. It was recently on a Mod compillation CD there with a cover that was in the style of The Jam's Sound Effects LP.

That Compilation got decent reviews however I didnt get it,

I was thinking that maybe an idea for a sticky for this site would be to put us a list of various comp albums , that cover various style Eg Sixties, Club Soul / RnB, Ska, Jazz, Revival , that people would recommend

I  think it would be useful for people just getting into the scene or just for others to check out
