Big thanks to Jason for spotting that an album we mentioned some months back and a companion album are both on pre-order – The Scene Club: Ham Yard, London and The Twisted Wheel: Brazennose & Whitworth Street. Manchester albums.
Month: February 2013
It’s never going to be ‘mod’ (despite the name attached to the women’s range), but the new 1960s-style Mad Men clothing range at Banana Republic is certainly worth a look at online.
Not done a new band feature for a while, but after hearing the first single from Mikey and the Drags, we’re back in the game.
The Black Sabbath cover might not be your cup of tea, but the mod revival feature in this month’s Record Collector just might be.

This week, Universal Music are finally giving a UK release to the Booker T. & The MGs three-disc, 65 song box set, Time Is Tight. Mick Mulligan checks is out.
Seems to be growing number of releases appearing on Spotify before the album is actually physically released. The latest is the Mo Jazz 2 compilation from Acid Jazz.
Michael Bennett gives us the lowdown on DC Bespoke, the mod-friendly bespoke shirtmaker, based just outside the centre of Manchester.
