Manchesters love affair with black American music in the nineteen sixties. Enter the world of the ups and the paranoid downs of week after week of amphetamine fuelled all night dancing; duplicated later on the seventies ‘Northern Soul Scene’ but this was the beginning and where it all started. A Mod too long without sleep in a toilet cubicle examines his mind and finds he has no control over its runaway repetitive musical replay and it won’t stop and the loss of his girlfriend doesn’t help. The story of an unravelling mind recounting the untold story of a youth movement of style and music in a Northern town. A lost account, not found in any other books written about this scene, based around real events, an historical documentation of the lost and real story of the Manchester Soul Mods. A novel that gives the insider story of Mod styles, Mod arrogance and describes the underground Soul scene that was an essential part of Manchester’s youth movement in a hedonistic decade.
