There, you can listen to our episodes, subscribe to our podcast, or donate to our show to keep things going. Today we're gonna play a bunch of records for you. And it's all about the mods. What are the mods you ask? mod is a subculture that began in London and spread through Great Britain and elsewhere, eventually influencing fashions and trends in other countries. And today, even on a smaller scale, focused on music and fashion. The subculture had its roots in a group of stylish London based young men in the late 50s, who returned modernist because they listened to modern jazz. elements of the mod subculture included fashion, often tailor made suits music, including soul rhythm and blues, ska, jazz, and motor scooters, usually made by the Italian company Lambretta or Vesper. In the mid 60s, the subculture listened to powerpop rock groups with mod followings, such as the who and the Small Faces. After the peak mod era, the original mod scene was associated with in fetta mean field all night dance clubs. During the early to mid 60s, as mods grew and spread throughout the United Kingdom, certain elements of the mod scene became engaged in well publicized clashes with members of a rival subculture called Rockers, is something in America we'd call rockabilly those rockers. They love Jean Vinson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and the like, as opposed to the mods in their love for power, pop and r&b and genres that we previously mentioned. As mods became more cosmopolitan during the swinging London period, some working class street mods splintered off, forming other groups that would eventually become known as skinheads. There was a mod revival in the United Kingdom in the late 70s, which attempted to replicate the scooter period looks and styles of the early to mid 60s. It was followed by a similar mod revival in North America in the early 80s, particularly in Southern California, Vancouver and Toronto. As mentioned, many mods drove scooters usually again Vespers or lambrettas. Because scooters were practical and affordable form of transportation for teens to get in the 60s since until the early 70s. In the United Kingdom, public transportation stopped relatively early in the night. for teens with low paying jobs scooters were cheap, and much easier to park than cars and they can be bought through the newly available national hire to purchase plan in the UK. mods also treated scooters as a fashion acessory Italian scooters were preferred due to their clean lines, curving shapes and cleaning Chrome. They also served as a practical purpose for their fashion. The front kellyn protected they're tailor made suits, as well as the military purpose they wore for warm as well ensuring that they always looked sharp and were protected from the elements. For the young moto Italian scooters are the embodiment of continental style in a way to escape their working class rowhouses of their upbringing. mods customize their scooters by painting them in two tone and candy flake and over accessorize them with luggage racks, crash bars and scores of mirrors and fog lights. Some mods edit for 10 as many as 30 mirrors to their scooters. Sometimes they took their engine side panels and truck bumpers to electroplating shops to get them covered in Jaime chrome to really customize thing and in every way possible.
