  3. I woz MOD in the 60’s. I’m now living in Brighton!

  4. Hi I have had a novel, East Coast Blues, published which is set on the east coast and is about a young man coming of age in the 1960s. It covers the music, fashions, tensions-and work conditions of the era. The story goes beyond the usual mods and rockers myths and addresses some uncomfortable truths about those days. It has received 5 star reviews on Amazon and is available on Kindle and from book shops. Would you be interested in promoting this through your web site?



  5. Bill Chamberlain

    Hey John,

    Only just seen your message, please get in contact, is there a movie in your story/book ?

  6. Ian Davis

    I am not a “MOD” but I do love the music. I have a Honda Dominator converted into a Cafe racer, would it be ok to come along to your event ?



  7. Would definatly be interested in these events.
    I am a 25 year old who grew up with my grandad who was a Mod and i think the culture has ran through to me

  8. Lord Robert Rae Sutherland of Glencairn

    In all my years as a Mod, this will actually be my first weekender. Would it be possible to purchase an access all areas pass/band so we don’t have to pay at the doors or have to wait hours just to be told “sorry, we’re full, no room”
