Mod Couples

Following on from Owen Harvey's Dancing Mods, here are Carlotta Cardana's rather splenid Mod Couples, showing at Photofusion in Brixton.

They seem a bit far from the amphetamine fuelled fishtail parka, Phil Daniels knee trembling beloved of  old, with a touch of the Old Fogey/Brideshead look about them.

Where did it all go wrong?

I blame Sir Bradley Wiggins. Here are some people who refused to become Sir -  including David Bowie, Danny Boyle, Aldous Huxley, Mohammed Ali Jinnah ("I prefer to be plain Mr Jinnah"), Stephen Hawking, Graham Greene, L.S. Lowry (holds the record most honours declined) and Rudyard Kipling.

Back in the sixties, Mods were like- The Future! Now, they're very much... retro.

Didn't, we do this circa early '80s?

Thanks for the Memories, Gazebook Sicily!

Gazebook was fantastic! If you don't know it, it's a festival that takes place in the small town of Punta Secca on the south ...
