The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed book 'Sawdust Caesars: Original Mod Voices

'Mojo Talkin' - Under the Influence of Mod' is a 514  page hardback and packed with rare and exclusive photos and words of Mod influence across the decades. Studying the impact upon both individuals - from the sixties period through to the 79 revival and beyond - and the media associated with the culture. The development of music across the decades sits alongside the evolving look and style (original skinheads are also chronicled as is the influence on early punk). Two in-depth photo-packed chapters also chronicle the Mod girls - in their authentic words. Mod on Screen studies the many areas that the phenomenon was covered in film and TV; the integral presence of the DJ (be it a playlist of Soul,  R&B, Ska, Modern Jazz or Freakbeat); the Literature of 'Absolute Beginners'; Mod Art; the 80's Soul revival; contemporary Mod youths and collecting the soundtrack via original records ... all are a crucial and compelling aspect of this exhaustive volume of study of the celebrated youth subculture.
