I was brought up in glasgow in the early 60's, and moved to eastkilbride in 1973 from first blackhill, then bridgeton. My sisters were all first generation mods, so i had good teachers!!
We used to visit a wee record shop every saturday on duke street, where my pocket money would get spent on the coolest sounds, which i still have to this day!
By the time the second generation was born in the late seventies i was in my late teens, and embraced the scene with open arms, as nobody had a clue about style or good music until then. Although i was no longer in a minority, we were few and far between in e.k. I am proud to say that now in my 40's married and i am still a mod....AND ALWAYS WILL BE!!!!!! KEEP THE FAITH.
