Second Anniversary Banner
To tie in with the upcoming second anniversary of the publication of Soul & Mod, another banner has been added to include the following images. A heartfelt thanks to DJ Alan Handscombe and also Italo Adriani, one of the original 80s Rimini Mods from Italy. In addition to Tony Beesley for his inclusion of my contribution as an 80s Mod girl in Mojo Talkin – Under The Influence Of Mod and Shaun Knapp for my invitation to the launch night of Mods : Shaping A Generation exhibition.
Here are those four images included on the new banner :
My Song For The Month
Carrie Grant And The Grandeurs – Take All Of My Life
I personally think that this track is divine. Released in 1962 on New Art Records, a track I was recommended to hear by Alan Handscombe after posting Mish Mash up on Facebook. A beautiful slice of early 60s Soul, it is one of my personal new listens for 2019.
