  • Punks on Scooters

    Michael Salter's first-hand account of the Bristol mod revival. Includes appendices by Bristol mods Eve Pearce and Geoff Rice, Steamers DJ Jerry Cripps and Jon Andrews, lead singer of Mayfair. Limitd edition signed copy.

    Like many young people in the mid 70s Michael Salter adopted punk as his protest against ‘no future’ politics, dreary chart music and the pomp and excess of prog rock. But as the punk sub-culture split and evolved, Salter and his friends moved away from the spiky haired shock tactics to the sharp-suited, 1960s retro-style of the mods.
