I'm a Essex boy......born in Romford, brought up in Ilford, Lived in Forest of Dean on and off since 2000, now married to an American, my darling Rosie and will be moving to the States in the very near future! My elder bro was an original Mod in the early sixties, real cool Lambretta, lotsa morrors, chrome, fur, lol. I was a very young Skinhead in the early 70's, loved the music and the rude boys but loved the Mods as well. Love the look, the music. The clothes are just soo 8ucking class! The two shops in ilford where we bought our gear were Granditers, where ya got yer Ben Shermans, Harrington Jackets and Crombies and just down the road on the other side was Byrites, where ya got yer Brutus shirts. All long gone now. I had me silver tonic suit and all the rest of me gear, listened to Reggae and motown and nothing else.
Top 5 tunes at the moment:
The Them, (Van Morrison),Gloria
The Kinks, You really got me
The small faces, Itchicoo Park
The Small Faces, Lazy Sunday Afternoon
Paul Weller, Wake up the nation
