Mods, Rockers an Rude boys too.
Back in the early eighties I was a teenage 'rude boy', into my Ska, short hair, shiny brogues, stay press slacks and Fred Perry shirts. We thought we looked smart, we did. The rockers were just a mess. Then the Mods would make you think again, two tone suits, shirt and tie, parkers and a slick pair of bowling shoes. The most impressive accessory was the scooter. This little gem was part of a scooter rally and if you have seen Quadrophenia, filmed in my home town, check out 'Ace' played by Sting and he did look the buisness. Almost became a Mod, Nah!!! Ska saved the day.
