My Song For The Month
Jewel Akens – My First Lonely Night
A beautiful mid tempo slice of 60s Soul. Released on ERA records in 1966, I think this track is pure chocolate for the ears and has been a constant listen of mine for the past few months.

Within Soul & Mod, I always to encompass a variety of topics which are associated with these genres. The memories section I especially like to work on because I have a pure love of nostalgia, as well as knowing that the visitors to Soul & Mod, enjoy reading these articles. Therefore I was delighted to catch up with a friend of mine, Clelia Lucchitta, from Milan. Clelia has been part of the Mod scene spanning over three decades and is well known and respected throughout the Italian & UK scenes. We had an enjoyable and insightful chat about her 80s Mod days in April. In addition it was extra icing on the cake, so to speak, to hear not only about her memories but also an introduction to my site regarding life as a European Mod. Here is Clelia’s interview.

There are so many groups on Facebook that encompass the genre of Mod subculture. Dependent upon your preference and what your perception of Mod subculture is about there are a whole host to join. As those who know me, know I have a great love of 60s Soul music. Modernistas is one of my favourite Facebook groups as it concentrates on the wide plethora and a deep & respected knowledge of Jazz, Soul and Blues music. Admined by Bell Sheffield, Inga Stollenz & Mark Aldridge, if you are’nt a member and like the true roots of music that Mod is associated with, I highly recommend joining Modernistas.
