If attending a teenage party, or in fact one of any other kind, I’d naturally wear my sharpest, coolest ensemble - possibly even my ivy-league outfit a GI got for me last year from his PX.

Young, good looking, crew cut, Ivy League, advertising exec type fruit holds the door back for me. I am evidently his idea of a character …

I wear ivy league jackets, white buckskin shoes// so many tickets down the scene honey....

For me, two major events coincided in 1961. The one, going to see the film West Side Story, had an immediate impact i.e. rebellion through fashion. The other - discovering the Blues - was more of a slow-burning fuse exploding in the rejection of "pop" music.
By years end the die was cast fashion-wise, and my choice of music was set for the next decade; the Mod years!

1962 is the year it kicked off in earnest. This is the year DJ Sammy Samwell began his mould-breaking stint at The Lyceum ballroom, the year the "Billy-Bean" (The Scene) opened and the year the Mod phenomenon started attracting attention and began making "news".

1963 and esoteric, laid-back Modernist gives way to frenetic in-your-face Mod. Music-wise, British bands guilty of covering American R&B originals are cold-shouldered at all the main Mod venues (even past favourites like Georgie Fame and The Animals get the treatment,). The humble DJ moves from the wings of the entertainment industry to center-stage and the word Disco enters the language.
Mods now seem to be everywhere, looking cool, splashing the cash and generally cocking a snoop at traditional values and rules. The ruling-class takes note. The scooter appears (as does credit in the form of "hire-purchase"). The police get nervous therefore hostile. The media sits up. And the ad-man says... ah-ahhh!

(unlike previous years, it's interesting to note the VAST difference between this list of songs and the 1964 British "pop" charts).

***THE BLUES SLOWLY MAKES WAY FOR THE JAMAICAN SOUNDS OF SKA/ROCK-STEADY


1964. The metamorphose is complete. Mod rules. The Whitsun "riots" make (manufacture, if truth be known) the front pages. After, by handing stiff prison sentences down to the kids unfortunate enough to be caught by the Old Bill, the ruling-class hits back. Oh, and capital punishment is abolished!!

Culturally, Kubrick's film Dr. Strangelove starring Peter Sellers darkly/playfully reminds us all how thin the line between political reality and MADness really is. Radio Caroline hits the air-waves. And The Ad-Man? He introduces us all to big, convoluted words like "consumer" and "markets".

In America, the struggle for equal rights gathers momentum and iinfiltrates/nspires the music of 1964. With an estimated 73 million tuning in to The Beatles appearing on the Ed Sullivan show, the "British Invasion" begins. "The sound of young America" i.e. Tamla-Motown, churning out hit upon hit upon hit, becomes an unstoppable force in the music industry (paradoxically, it's growing popularity is also the beginning of the end of the Mod phenomenon). But unbeknown to almost everyone the musical grass-root action (excuse the pun) is playing out Jamaica.

1965. Ossie Clark graduates with a first class degree and a collection of tasty clothes inspired by artist Bridget Riley. The success of Clark’s clothes is due in large part to the collaboration with textile designer Celia Birtwell. At the same time as Ossie Clark, Celia Birtwell and business partner Alice Pollock are blazing trails at their boutique Quorum, London's fashion centre of gravity shifts from W.1. to S.W.1.
In film, Polanski's first English language film "Repulsion" and John Schlesinger's "Darling" are released to critical acclaim. In music, CBS's Walter Cronkite writes "The British Invasion this time goes by the code name Beatlemania". Culturally, it seems anything "swinging" British is hot.

As opposed to 1963 where the alternative list of hits I wrote of were cheap covers and novelty songs this year the opposite is true. From a longer list than mine, top songs like "All Day and All of the Night" - The Kinks, "All I Really Want to Do" - The Byrds, "Baby Don't Go" - Sonny & Cher, "Baby Please Don't Go" - Them and a different type of music created by future legends is pricking the conscience of most Mods. Dancing is giving way to protest.

Across the pond in the good ol' U.S. the taboo-busting "The Pawnbroker" starring Rod Steiger hits the silver screen, future Doors members Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek meet on Venice Beach California, Bob Dylan "goes electric" and John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" is born. So much for the future of music, sadly, past legends are dropping like flies. One, Charles Fizer of "Western Movies" fame band The Olympics, gets shot and killed during the Watts Riots.

In Politics, Malcolm X is assassinated, and in the south, the struggle for equal rights gets really fierce. Abroad, 3500 U.S. marines arrive in Saigon, becoming the first American combat troops openly in Vietnam as opposed to skulking behind the title "advisers". By years end Operation Rolling Thunder signals the escalation of action in Vietnam into a full-blown dirty war.

And on the island of Jamaica the musicians are paving the way for a new form of global music i.e. Reggae.

SORRY FOR THE DELAY FOLKS BUT IT WASN'T PLANNED AND COULDN'T BE AVOIDED... THE END (1966) COMING VERY SOON!!!
..............

1966. Swinging Britain. Barbara Hulanicka's Biba is now more than about womens fashion, its a womanist statement. Kensington High Street and Kings Rd. together establish west London as the next Modernist centre of gravity. Pirate Radio hits the airwaves and the British cultural invasion of America continues apace.
In an interview with London's Evening Standard newspaper, John Lennon upsets a few people declaring The Beatles "more popular now than Jesus" and The Animals make a fifth appearance on America's The Ed Sullivan Show performing their iconic Vietnam-anthem hit "We Gotta Get Out of this Place".
Generally, film (movies) is getting better and better (or is it just that we are growing up?). The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, The Russians Are Coming, Alfie, Georgy Girl, Morgan!, Blowup, Polanski's Cul-De-Sac are but a few examples of great movies released in 1966. And on TV Jonathan Miller's Alice In Wonderland showcasing a whole plethora of Britain's finest comic/acting talents wraps up an iconic year for the BBC.

In England, the Labour Party win the general election thus winning for its leader Harold Wilson the dubious distinction of being Prime Minister at the first televised opening of that lovely theatre of the absurd...the Parliament of the United Kingdom. In London, the shooting of George Cornell, murdered by Ronnie Kray of the Kray Twins gang in an east London pub called the Blind Beggars, blows the lid off the nefarious doings of London's infamous "underworld" mobs. And amid all these (dark) comings and goings, on a glorious summers day at Wembley stadium, England win football's World Cup. Oh the joy !!

However, on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, the American dream is going seriously wonky for our Anglo-Saxon cousins; so wonky they start throwing their toys out of the proverbial pram. Beginning 1966 "life" becomes all about America: it's politics - and by extension it's wars, it's culture, it's society, it's industry... you name any aspect of living in the mid-sixties and it danced to the tune of marching Americans (whether of the clean-cut booted and suited sort singing "Over There" or the long haired moccasin and sandal clad mob chanting "Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh"). Yep, the "simplicity" of pre-media Britain passed away in 1966.

In music, by 1966 the in-house songwriter as a separate profession becomes less important as groups like the Beach Boys, the Beatles, the Byrds, and The Stones set the tone for other upcoming artists who wrote their own material. And the sound engineer - that pipe-smoking, white-coated, academic of the fifties had vanished... replaced by the young musicians buddy and social contemporary, the sound-man.

But in terms of genres, music is all over the place. It really does feel like a huge music "Melting Pot". Hard to believe perhaps, but it's Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass that set a world record by placing five albums simultaneously on Billboard's Pop Album Chart. Their music outsells The Beatles by a margin of two-to-one... over 13 million recordings. Other surprises include The Beach Boys dropping "Pet Sounds" on an unsuspecting public, Bob Dylan's "Blond On Blond" and The Doors seminal debut LP are released. And yet in this sea of conflicting currents the one constant is the music of America's black inner-cities i.e. Soul (in particular the Motown version). 1966 is the zenith of this genre. Giants like Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Bobby Womack, Al Green, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding released music of such legendary proportions they will forevermore be known simply by their names as opposed to a "signature tune" (something which today sounds almost routine but back then was an accolade reserved for the blessed few ...mainly whites).
PS. "And on the island of Jamaica the musicians are paving the way for a new form of global music i.e. Reggae."

Anyway, enough of all that. Here's the (Mod) music for 1966.

"You Keep Me Hanging On" - The Supremes
"Ain't That Peculiar" / "One More Heartache" - Marvin Gaye
"Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever" / "Reach Out, I'll Be There" - Four Tops
"Neighbour, Neighbour" - Jimmy Hughes
"Look At Granny Run-Run" / "Ain't Nobody Home" - Howard Tate
"Working In A Coal Mine" / "Holy Cow" - Lee Dorsey
"Barefootin'" b/w "Let's Go Baby" - Robert Parker
"Hold On I'm Comin'" / "Soothe Me" - Sam & Dave
"Get Ready" / "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" - The Temptations
"I Know I'm Losing You" / "Beauty's Only Shin Deep" - The Temptations
"Open The Door To Your Heart" - Darrell Banks
"Don't Mess With Bill" - The Marvelettes
"Tell It Like It Is" - Aaron Neville
"What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted" - Jimmy Ruffin
"Come 'Round Here I'm The One You Need" - The Miracles
"Love Makes The World Go Around" - Deon Jackson
"Roadrunner" - Jnr. Walker
"Uptight (Everything Is Alright" / "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby" - Stevie Wonder
"This Old Heart Of Mine" - The Isley Brothers
"Sweet Talking Guy" - The Chiffons
"I'm Ready For Love" - Martha & The Vandellas
"Wade In The Water" - Ramsey Lewis Trio
"Whispers (Getting Louder)" - Jackie Wilson
"Cool Jerk" - The Capitols
"634-5789" - Wilson Pickett
"B-A-B-Y' - Carla Thomas
"Searching For My Love" - Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces
"Roadrunner" - Jnr. Walker
"Knock On Wood" - Eddie Floyd
"Little Piece Of Leather" - Donnie Elbert
"Put Yourself In My Place" - The Elgins
"She Blew A Good Thing" / "Baby Don't Do It" - The Poets

Well that's it folks, that's my play-list of the music of the Original Modernists. When I kicked off with my list for 1959 the choices were easy, they picked themselves in fact. The 1960 list continued in the groove. 1961 was a breeze. 1962 was a dream. 1963, my favourite. And 1964 was the pinnicle. Thereafter It's got progressively harder. So much so that this, the 1966 list is........ a parallel universe like!!

Ein paar Kommentare zu den Listen, die ich hervorhebenswert finde:

Chris Hardy An interesting list Jeff, the fact that the Beatles is the only non-US act reflects the dominance of American musical influence back then.......also quite a few of those tracks would not be played at mod dos these days.

Jeff Dexter The reason being is those dodgy mod books, and other publications from folks who weren't there, or those who were just looking in.
There were some other British discs spun at the Ly, but they never lasted the course.
I noticed you listed 'What'cha Gonna Do About It', written & produced by 'Sammy'.

Chris Hardy Even stuff like the Routers 'Lets Go!' used to get played at the State Kilburn back then. I'm no expert but I believe the mod scene these days has more of a northen or rare soul leaning, which obviously never existed for us back in those early days......
Jeff, I was refering to the Doris Troy song rather than the Small Faces version.....Talking of Ian Samwell I believe he replaced my late cousin Rick in an early incarnation of Harry Webb's Drifters at the 2is all those years ago.



Dieser Kommentar ist auch recht treffend:

Matthew Clarke What a fascinating read, & brilliant thread. Seeing the change in musical influence is so interesting - the rise then fall in popularity of blues, the way ska seemed to edge it out I guess, the ascendancy of soul as it developed from the r'n'b/girl group/dance craze orientation, barely a mention of the likes of The Who, Birds, Action, Small Faces.... but the real surprise to me was the 59/60 choices - I had imagined the dawn of the modernist era to be all about jazz, blues and r'n'b but the listings here have shot that idea to pieces in my head! Astounding! Many thanks to all who have contributed.

Obwohl man der Fairness halber sicherlich hinzufügen sollte, dass Tonys Liste so sehr sie auch repräsentativ für seine Zeit und seinen Platz und seine Clique ist, ganz ähnlich wie Jeff Dexters Lyceum-Liste, sicher nicht repräsentativ ist für "the dawn of the modernist era", denn Tony war eben noch kein Teenager in den 50ern sondern "erst" in den frühen 60ern.
Also wer in London Anfang der 60er im Lyceum Ballroom getanzt hat, wird das nachvollziehen können. Es geht hier um riesige Tanzsäle, vergleichbar mit Großraumdiskos, und da lief eben die Popmusik der Zeit, Top 40 Tanzmusik! Kaum vorstellbar, dass da hunderte Kids zu "Kind Of Blue" getanzt haben. Und natürlich haben sie auch nicht nach unveröffentlichten Acetat-Pressungen oder nach dem Shrine-Label gesucht...

Natürlich gab es aber parallel dazu auch im London der 50er und 60er eine Jazz-Szene, und da bekamen die ursprünglichen "Modernists" auch ihren Namen, das ist ja alles gut in Absolute Beginners beschrieben. Sicher wird es auch gewisse Überschneidungen gegeben haben, gerade bei Clubs wie dem Flamingo. Aber die Jazz-Szene und die Mod-Scene waren halt nicht identisch...

Naja, und die Suche nach Raritäten, die Anfänge der Northern Soul Scene liegen halt Ende der 60er im Twisted Wheel und in ähnlichen Clubs, die Mitte der 60er hauptsächlich Motown, Detroit und Chicago Soul und schnellere Tanznummern gespielt hatten... und als sich der Soul Sound Ende der 60er veränderte, hatten dort viele Leute eben keine Lust auf die neueren Sachen und stellten fest, dass es ja sehr viel, unendlich viel Zeug gibt, was genauso klingt wie dieser mid sixties Motown-Kram und der altbewährte Sound, wenn man nur lang genug suchte...


If attending a teenage party, or in fact one of any other kind, I’d naturally wear my sharpest, coolest ensemble - possibly even my ivy-league outfit a GI got for me last year from his PX.

... Achso:

"Jeff, I was refering to the Doris Troy song rather than the Small Faces version...."

Dieser Satz von Chris Hardy bezieht sich übrigens darauf, dass diesen ellenlangen Listen mit Favoriten und Lieblingsstücken der "Originalmods" eine kürzere Liste von Chris Hardy vorausgegangen war.

Er hatte das alles eröffnet mit einer kürzeren Liste, die aus, wenn ich mich recht entsinne, jeweils drei oder vier Stücken von Betty Everett, Doris Troy und Barbara Lewis bestand, vielleicht war auch Little Eva dabei... Ich muss noch mal nachsehen, wenn ich mal wieder auf Facebook bin.


edit: Der Ausdruck "version" ist natürlich hier irreführend. Beim gleichnamigen Stück der SF handelt es sich keineswegs um eine Coverversion des Liedes von Doris Troy. "Whatcha Gonna Do About It" von den SF war ursprünglich wohl ein Instrumental und basierte, wenn man so will, auf einem Rip-Off des Hooks von "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" von Solomon Burke. Der Text kam dann wohl von Sammy Samwell, der sich auch um die Produktion kümmerte. Jeff war damals wohl auch dabei....
