Richard's mod inspiration:
Motown. Motown is probably the best record label in the world ever. It's hard to imagine a mod world without Motown. The Jam's 'Town Called Malice' (itself a Mod Musical Icon) could not have existed if 'You Can't Hurry Love' by Diana Ross & the Supremes didn't already. When you think that Smokey & the Miracles, the Temptations, the Isley Bros, the Four Tops, the Marvelletes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and soooooo many others (Frank Wilson's 'Do I Love You'?!) were all on Motown, it's incredible. So they provided the perfect soundtrack. And they also wore amazing clothes, with great hair-styles!
