If you happen to be in London before 7th April 2010, you might want to check out the Pure Bailey, Pure Sixties selling exhibition, which is currently taking place at Bonham's.

If you're not sure what to expect, the Scenester has been there first, checking out the classic David Bailey imagery and penning a review for the site. Check it out now.

Cheap entertainment too – it's free to get in. However, the price of those photos is a little more expensive.

Another new print from everyone's favourite modern-day 60s-inspired artist – Shag's The Tall Order.

As you might have guessed, it is pretty tall – 23 inches high and 11 inches wide, featuring a typically hip 60s couple and a big dose of tiki.

250 are being made as 14-colour serigraphs, priced at $150 while stocks last.

New Kinks DVD incoming

by Modculture 19 March, 2010

Not to be confused with the forthcoming movie, You Really Got Me is a new documentary about The Kinks, which is heading to DVD in April.

87 minutes in length, it features interview with the brothers, Mick Avory and others, along with plenty of rare footage of band, right from early '64/'65 stuff (‘You Really Got Me’, ‘’til The End Of The Day’, ‘I’m A Lover Not A Fighter’ and ‘Milk Cow Blues’) and throughout that decade (footage of Dave Davies in foppish gear singing ‘Death Of A Clown’, live film of ‘Well Respected Man’, ‘Dead End Street’ and ‘Waterloo Sunset’, plus coloured TV clips from The Village Green Preservation Society era). The 70s and 80s are also featured on the disc, with the output of that era given an overdue reappraisal.

Hopefully we'll have a review of the DVD ahead of that release date, but you can pre-order now at Amazon (which is actually claiming the release date is 22nd March 2010) – price is just over £12.

by Modculture 17 March, 2010

A classic bit of 60s-style horror with some jazz thrown in for good measure – Dr. Terror's House of Horrors.

Newly-reissued in widescreen format by Odeon on DVD, the movie is the first of Amicus' 'portmanteau movies, effectively five mini tales in one, held together by the mysterious Doctor Schreck (German for 'terror').

Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Roy Castle and the Tubby Hayes Quintet with  'that voodoo tune', which was recently reissued on a 45 via Trunk. Check out my review online right now.

Another vintage label is back as a heritage brand – Slazenger Heritage.

But it's back now with polo shirts, knitwear, bags and for any Blur fans out there, the track top from the Park Life video.
