If you own a copy of Paolo Hewitt's 'mod compilation' book The Sharper Word, you might have encountered a piece in titled Something Beginning With 'O' by Kevin Pearce. It was taken from a now quite rare book of the same name – and a copy has just landed on eBay.
It's more wide-ranging book on pop culture, taking on the literature, popular music and clubbing, covering the likes of the mod scene, northern soul and punk, featuring Paul Weller, Kevin Rowland and Vic Godard of the Subway Sect.
I'll be honest, I've not seen my copy for a long time, but remember it being a very good read. Originally published by Heavenly, it's unlikely to get a reissue – so with a price of £1.99 right now, it's well worth our attention.
