I know, I know - the mods fought against the rockers on the beaches of Brighton in the 1960s. Bollocks. Mods didn't want to get their suits dirty. Ok, maybe there were skirmishes here and there that were sensationalized by the press. I don't care about any of that. Fact is, there's been more Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry emanating from my iPod lately (I know, oh, the irony! an iPod used to play old music! Sue me) than anything mod-related. I don't care - I love it all - from Fred Astaire to Ray Davies to Chuck Berry to the Who to Elvis to Cock Sparrer to the Jam to Little Willie John. It's all great stuff, and I don't label myself. And, living in Vermont, I will take what I can get when it comes to anything with a retro/vintage spin that doesn't remotely involve fleece, clogs, or Phish.
So Montreal, here we come - again. Are you going to be there too? If so, get in touch!
