    Introducing - Craig Lennon

    Post by CraigLennon on Fri Sep 09, 2011 10:36 pm

    Hi,

    Craig Lennon Merrick and I'm 20.


    I'm from Birmingham (the home of the Brumsdale).

    My hair has to be the right length for me to style it and if it wont go right I tend to get very annoyed.

    I live for music and I am a solo musician. I write my own stuff. Very acoustic OCS/Weller. I like too many artists to list but my main influences are - Marriott, Weller, Ray Charles & Joe Strummer.

    I have an E.P coming out soon (Something's gotta' Change), the art work has just been finished and it's going into printing soon. People ask why I go under the name Craig Lennon... My middle name is actually Lennon and it worked for Ray Charles so why not ???

    I don't own a scooter YET mainly due to funds. I'm about to get a new job as the one I have just does not pay enough.

    Birmingham is a brilliant place for Mods, a fair few young guys on the scene. Good venues and great bands around the area. (R.I.P the Sound Bar).

    Anything you want to know? Just ask.

    Hi mate,

    Something going wrong here... wrote this bloody thing 3 times now and wont send...

    anyway, I'm not gonna lie I'm not hugely into the scooter seen YET.

    Mainly due to the fact that I don't have a scooter. Inbetween buying guitars and paying for recording I have hardly any spare cahs to save for one haha !

    But hopefully one day aye? .... when I get a new job.

    I try to get around to local scooter doo's. I managed to catch the very back end of the Western Super Mare rally like two years ago, and have been to the Stratford-upon-Avon one before.

    Mainly just go to parts fairs etc.. to dream haha

    Well if you hang round here you'll get wind of local rallies and you can get yourself along to one, have a bit of banter and be able to ask round, see if anyone is selling a scooter on the cheap.

    Nice one mate, seems like a pretty good vibe here. thats one thing I found about MOST younger "mods" or "Skinhead" etc... there isn't the elitism there is amongst the older generations.

    I've been told not to bother going to some doo's in Birmingham if my clothes were not from a certain decade or specific year ! haha


    how sad

    Welcome,


    Maybe i miss the point but surely there always has to be some form of elitism in any scene? Especially the mod scene?

    Yeah scene conformity, but only to an extent, when it comes down to wearing or not wearing purple pimp socks its gone too far!

    But when I get told I'm not a Mod because I can't afford a £600 suit, I get rather annoyed.

    Modernism covers a wide range of topics... Not just clothes. Any old dick can go and spend shit loads on a lambretta and clothes. Don't make him a Mod.

    True, i was meaning isnt being a mod being as sharp as possible and trying to look better than other people with the money you have?


    Like your songs Smile

    Cheers mate,

    Ye that is the point. Still, you can't tell me thatsomeone who decided to go and see a Jam Tribute band, Loves Town Called Malice, next day buys a Lammy and a suit is more of a Mod than someone who has listened to "Mod" type bands since they were about 10, grew up with Mod.

    It's just annoying, where I work I get it all the time... ahh your hair aint right, your shirts this your shoes are that...

    I'm not the one wearing Burbury shirts and thick gold chains... Mod's aint just for Crimbo kids. lol

    Oh ye agree with that. But I see it more as competition... Same goes with music. Gotta find the hottest sound and stuff.

    No need to be a dick about it, am I right ?

    Yes you are right, just saying that there needs to be some form of elitism. But not one that excludes people, just make them want to do better Cool
