  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?
