Northern soul style: a trip down memory lane - The Guardian (blog)

Northern soul style: a trip down memory lane - The Guardian (blog) | Mod Content of Interest | Scoop.it

I can't remember how old I was at the time (ahem), but I do remember that my parents expressly forbade ownership of anything remotely mod-ish. No matter: I had a Saturday job, and saved up and bought a Trevira suit anyway. I'd go out with my stuff in a bag and change at a friend's house.

A Beginners Guide to pre-winter scooter maintenance

A Beginners Guide to pre-winter scooter maintenance | Mod Content of Interest | Scoop.it

If, like me, you’re someone who ‘lives to ride’ in an Easy Rider way (minus the shotgun incident or tassled jacket), then it might be fair to say that the aesthetic and need for pleasurable experience may outweigh the knowledge base required to keep your beloved mid-century lawnmower on the road.

The Mod Closet's insight:

Having finally purchased our first Lambretta scooter (I prefer the term 'mid-life transition' or, even better 'second life' by the way) I was wondering about Isle of Wight or Brighton next August bank holiday.  I am deeply in love with Brighton but am erring on the side of the IOW festival as it will be a new exprience but, I've read a number of articles/blogs around the IOW having had its day.  In fact this makes me want to go even more but I wonder what you think?
