Mod band? No, of course not! :-)

Following on from a discussion with a fellow forumite........

Small Faces - Mod band or not?

(I might add some others later. Spencer Davis Group for example, see below)

Anyone else here old enough to remember them?
And their audience at the time?

"All or nothing"

Spencer Davis Group -
who were a blues band dressed up as mods - what does that make them? :D

There's a much better version of All or Nothing than that :


And it's already in the Basement somewhere.

Have another so-called 'Mod' band - with a typically understated performance from Pete Townsend


And yet another 'Mod' band performing the title song to a popular satirical quiz programme - note the opening shout - "Punk Rock - Power"


Maybe Billy Joel got it right back in 1980

Yes mate!
Proper Rock'n'Roll.
Maybe "proper R & B " as well. 8-)

"No particular place to go" and "Johnny B. Goode" are not Rock'nRoll?
I doubt that Chuck Berry would agree! :shock:
