Mods In The UK [180g Vinyl LP]

Format: LP
Bar-code: 5060348581734
Cat No: NOTLP173


Mod was a peculiarly British movement. It originated in early-Sixties London without spreading significantly to America or Europe, although it did pave the way for the Swinging London scene which fascinated the world. Yet if the influences which created the distinctive Mod look came from a variety of different locations, the music had to be American – and the less mainstream the better. This album reflects that philosophy.
