'A-Z of Mod' Winner #6

Our 6th winner of our 'A-Z of Mod' competition is Chris Ogden from Knaresborough.

Chris's mod inspiration:

I was into mod before I'd even heard of it.

The inspiration? A copy of My Generation from my father's vinyl collection. I can't ha
ve been older than 5 when I became fascinated with the cover. Who were these people? How bright is his ginger hair? Who wears a jacket made from a flag? What's inside those barrels? Look at that nose..

Later I played it on the dusty red record player stored under my sisters' bed - and I was in. I've never looked back. They're my band. My father and I refer to them as 'the lads'.
