Drive down Parka Avenue and take a left on Essex Lane for all your Mod Art needs | Mod Music | Scoop.it
Deny it all you want but art has always been closely associated with Mod culture. Many of the original Mods from the sixties eventually went on to work in creative fields.

Northern Soul was a youth movement that rose to prominence in the 1960s where lesser known black soul music from America made it into the clubs of North England. Fuelled by drugs and dancing, this unique moment in time captured the energy of youth in these areas and set the scene for future club culture.

The popularity of the Northern Soul scene surged when the all-nighters began ... - BBC News | Mod Music | Scoop.it

Britain's Northern Soul music scene exploded with the first "all-nighter" at the Wigan Casino nightclub in September 1973. The Culture Show's Paul Mason, once a regular on the dancefloor, recalls the sound that defined his youth:

Looking back on Northern Soul, 40 years on from the first all-nighter at Wigan Casino, one thing stands out.

It may have blazed a trail to the all-night dance club scene we have today, but it was also the first youth subculture focused on the past.

The Mods looked down on the Preppies, the Preppies snubbed the Stoners (unless they needed weed), the Stoners avoided the Jocks, and everybody beat up on us Drama Freaks.

Northern soul style: a trip down memory lane - The Guardian (blog) | Mod Music | 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.

Poor-Man's Speed: Coming of Age in Wigan's Anarchic Northern Soul Scene | VICE United Kingdom

Poor-Man's Speed: Coming of Age in Wigan's Anarchic Northern Soul Scene | VICE United Kingdom | Mod Music | Scoop.it

One Saturday night ­in 1975, I met my mate at a shop in Manchester that would, for certain, sell you Bronchipax: ephedrine capsules, the poor-man’s speed, banned now but sold without prescription back then.

We bought a packet each and swallowed the lot with tonic water: eight times the maximum adult dose. But what did we care about the adult dose? We were 15, and about to set off for the greatest dance club in the world.

We reached Wigan Casino around midnight with my mate’s cousin who was a “face” on the Northern Soul scene. That got us into a café nearby, packed – not with soul boys as I expected – but with music journos from London, cool Italians in micro-sunglasses, American vinyl collectors and other global bohemians.
