    South Yorkshire Mod

    Post by Northern Monkey on Sat Jul 23, 2011 8:22 pm

    Alright everyone,
    Glad I found this site as I've been keen to chat to some like-minded individuals for a while now - not many of my mates are into the mod scene (bad, I know).

    Anyway, I'm 21 and from Rotherham - is anybody else from nearby? I don't have a scooter as car is priority at the moment, but I wouldn't mind one eventually. My main interest in the mod scene inevitably lies in the music and fashion. Although I don't get too caught up in being the archetypal mod, instead if it looks and feels good I'll wear it. Music-wise, I'm massively into 60s stuff; mainly psych, freakbeat and garage, although I do like the odd soul track as well.

    Cheers! And only a fiesta at the moment, I should be starting a job soon though, so that should give me a good wedge of money to save up for something else.

    Yeah he always looks smart, so he's a bit of an icon of mine. What's Wakefield like for a night out? Heard mixed reviews...Or do you just travel to Leeds?

    I adore Steve McQueen, good icon to have. Wakefields good I think, a lot of people slate it but then I know a lot who will say they have their best nights out in Wakefield.
    Never get a chance to hit Leeds at night, usually there in the day shopping though. It's one of my favourite places to hang out.

    Incidently I watched 'Coppers' on channel 4 last night following the old bill on their nightime duties around Wakefield. There was some delights knocking about Rolling Eyes.... Althought I suppose that's the same in whichever town you go.
