After the success of the Dance Craze book (pictured above), Paul Hallam’s publishing company is looking to produce another book, this time covering Mods ’78 – ’82.

Again it will  be written by Garry Bushell, with scans of old adverts, tickets and photos needed for the project, but initially, Garry’s interviews from Sounds are needed.

If you have any of the following articles, can you email [email protected] with details of what you have? Everyone who contributes will get a free book and a mention obviously.

Those articles required are:
