'79 Time For Action Mod Revival
1979 Mod Revival - Book - by Garry Bushell
It's over forty years since The Jam inspired a new generation with their All Mod Cons album - released in the dying months of 1978. But the Mod revival was far more than just a one-band phenomenon inspired by the arrival of the film version of The Who's Quadrophenia. A succession of groups including The Purple Hearts, The Jolt, The Chords and Secret Affair amongst many others added to Weller's powerful songs with great tunes.
