Apart from love of café culture, beat music, and scooters with lots of shiny mirrors and lights, the UK’s 1960s Mods were into the sounds of American soul that had inspired so many of the UK beat artists, like the Animals, Kinks, and Small Faces. Sounds from Motown, Chess, Stax, Atlantic, and other great soul labels, found there way into, predominantly, white UK youth culture.

Here’s just a small selection of kind of, for that time, alien tunes that would have been heard on jukeboxes along the south coast and everywhere on the road between Croydon and Brighton in those days.
