Author: Hewitt, Paolo
Paolo Hewitt, celebrated former NME scribe and acclaimed biographer of Steve Marriott, The Jam and Oasis, collects the best ever writing on the original, and peculiarly British, cult of Mod.
Hewitt's hugely readable collection documents the clothes, the music, the clubs, the drugs and the faces behind one of the most misunderstood and enduring cultural movements.
Includes hard to find pieces by Tom Wolfe, bestselling novelist Tony Parsons, poet laureate Andrew Motion, disgraced Tory grandee Jonathan Aitken, Nik Cohn, Colin MacInnes, Mary Quant, and Irish Jack.
This 2009 revised edition includes new pieces on The Twisted Wheel Club, Motown UK fan club president Dave Godin's legendary trip to Detroit, and an intriguing piece by Alex Roest, 'Where Mod Went Next.'
Paolo Hewitt is a writer, broadcaster and journalist whose other books include Forever The People - Six Months On The Road With Oasis (Boxtree, 1999), Steve Marriott - All Too Beautiful (Helter Skelter, 2004), and Paul Weller - The Changing Man (Bantam Press, 2007).
