5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is IT! 7 mai 2014

This incredibly well researched, lovingly written, and sharply designed book is without question the best about the original Mods that has ever been produced.
With its near over-abundance of excellent and engaging text, its plethora of fabulous photos, its massive amount of memorabilia and ephemera--this is a book that will lend itself well to multiple revisits.
I could go most (if not all!) of the day layering praise upon praise and hyperbole upon hyperbole upon Mr. Anderson's superb tome--and I would still fall short of giving it its due.
As far as books about Mods are concerned--this is IT!

This review is for the hardcover version, not the Kindle. This book won't be released in the US for about 4 more months, so they won't allow reviews of it here until then. However, you can buy it from Amazon.co.uk and it will arrive in the US within a week. Which is what I did.

This is the book that long-time mods (or whatever pretentious euphemism they currently prefer) have been waiting for.
For decades, prior to the internet, Richard Barnes' "Mods!" (1979) was the only book on the topic and was the undisputed bible. It is still pretty much regarded as such. In 2001 Terry Rawlings' "Mod: A Very British Phenomenon" was released and raised the bar in terms of size, color and scope of content, but "Mods: The New Religion" must now be considered the New Testament.

It is 300 color pages of densely packed information, filled with a plethora of interviews of original 60s mods, and a visual onslaught of period memorabilia and photos. This is not a book you consume in one sitting. It will take you some time to absorb it all. Where this book really shines is with the larger perspective showing regional scenes and clubs in places outside of just London. Photos from the personal albums of 60s mods show a perspective unfiltered by the haze of time and myth.

As is always the case with this topic, there is always something else you wish were included. This book could probably have been twice the size and still people would b*tch that their favorite band, or record, or DJ or whatever didn't get proper recognition. Sure, I could point out a photoshop blunder or complain about captions being too small to read, but you can find error in anything if you look long enough. Except for maybe "Baby, I Love You" by The Ronettes,....that's pretty much a perfect product.

Five stars. Get the hardcover version.

"Mod was everything. Mod took over your whole life." Roland Kelly, a Mod.

If you like bands like The Small Faces, The Yardbirds, The Who, The Artwoods, etc., and U.S. performers like Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Chuck Berry, and American R&B in general, you will like this book. That whole 60's Mod movement still has it's identity today in large part due to all the great music identified with the Mod era.

And if you want only one book on the subject, Paul Anderson's well put together book is the one to have. It's crammed with first-person information told by the people who were there--both well and lesser/unknown people--and all who have something worth inclusion here. But equally important (and well done) are all the period photos of bands, venues, and the Mods themselves--both male and female. Plus there's club flyers, ads, 45 RPM record labels, and other ephemera from that era--in both color and b&w--that tell a visual story of the Mod movement in England in the 1960's.

Beginning with a chapter on British/Mod fashions, Anderson delves into the music that Mods craved, including a chapter on Ska (important to Mods). Also here are chapters on scooters (almost as important), dance styles, drugs ("purples" help you stay up all weekend), various important venues (the Flamingo, the Scene, the Coffee An,the Cellar Hall, etc.), TV ("Ready Steady Go!"), U.S. soul/r&b, and the English bands that forged their identities during that time. And all of these topics are dealt with in a great combination of personal accounts and many, many great period photos that cover the whole scene. Frankly it's a bit of a toss-up as to which is better--the personal accounts or all the great visuals. But combined, this book will be hard to beat on the subject of Mods.

I've always found the Mod era fascinating mostly because of the music. But the Mod devotion to sartorial splendor (beginning with that 1950's era Miles Davis/button-down look) is a large part of the Mod identity along with scooters (hopefully a Vespa), and the various venues/clubs where it all took place. Consequently I own a number of books on the Mod era, and "Mods The New Religion" is the best of the batch. Anderson has obviously put a lot of thought into the book's layout along with all the first-person accounts of what it was really like to be a Mod.

So if you want just one book on this fascinating era in British music, fashion, and what is was like to be a Mod, get this book.

If you are a fan of the Mods, or if you are merely curious about this slice of history, fashion and rock and roll, this book is a must read. I loved everything about it from cover to cover. Well done, Paul "Smiler" Anderson!

The print is too small. There is no option to adjust the print of the book.
If you are interested in this book, get a hardcopy. You will surely be disappointed by the kindle version.
