  1. Ian Penman reviews ‘Mod’ by Richard Weight · LRB 29 August 2013

    This is packed with good stuff. The differences between the fans of trad and modern jazz. Mods as continental modernists, aesthetes. Mods compared to other subcultures. “Tellyology”: shaping history with both eyes on a potential TV series. Ray Davies. Miles Davis. Blur. Noel Gallagaher. Today’s Mod revival as a ploddy “dad rock” conservatism. The British Music Experience.

  2. Light Entertainment (London Review of Books)

    Andrew O’Hagan on Jimmy Savile etc. Quite good on the general difference in TV and radio culture in the 50s/60s/70s, although it still feels like a very brief skim over the hard-to-grasp era/topic/atmosphere. (A bit late to this, catching up.)

  3. BBC News - Davy Jones, signifier of modernity

    Paul Mason on The Monkees and the 1960s: “If you watch just one episode of [The Monkees] … you will feel just a bit of what it was like before it all went wrong.” Lovely stuff.

  4. Voices Of East Anglia: Inside the Oxford Street HMV Store in the Sixties

    Lots of great photos of what it used to look like. I love that sweeping staircase. (via @antimega)

  5. Frieze Magazine | Archive | Degree Zero

    I’m fascinated by art Foundation-type courses and Roy Ascott’s ‘Groundcourse’ from the 1960s, which Eno did, sounds intriguing. (via Preoccupations)

  6. Click opera - Art students (called Brian) observed

    The student days of Brian Eno. (via Blackbeltjones)

  7. LRB | David Edgar : Stalking Out

    Review of a John Osborne biography with lots of interesting history about 1950s/60s London theatre, especially ‘Look Back in Anger’, Stratford East, and the Royal Court, and whether theatre was shaken up or not.
