Having made quite an impact with issue 1, I was pleased to see issue 2 landing on my doormat. Produced by Joe Moran and Ray Gilligan in Dublin, it uses the sub-title, ‘A user’s guide to modernism’.
With a heavy focus on the Irish scene, we are treated to an excellent interview with Irish face, Hugh Burns (The Keepers etc.). There’s a regular focus called ‘The Junction’ on current Mod clubs in Ireland and plenty of reviews of the latest Mod friendly music and fanzine releases from around Europe.
There’s an ‘essential’ listing on Boogaloo and Latin tracks and a look at Mod girl fashion entitled ‘La Mod Feminine’. Bands including Towerbrown and Resoul are featured and there’s an exclusive on Leonardo Flores’s epic coming of age Mod opus, ‘Young Birds Fly’. A focus on Ska’s influence on Mod and an article called ‘A Mod Life in Shoes’ makes this a very entertaining read.
