Mods (originally ‘modernists’) emerged in Britain in the early 1960s: they were mostly smartly turned out young men who loved European fashion, R&B, motor scooters and late nights. They spent most of their wages on clothes, frequenting the new breed of shops sprouting up in London’s Carnaby Street. Though some pop groups of the day, like the Who and the Small Faces, came out of the Mod scene, the music that Mods chose to dance to in the Marquee and mod clubs like the Goldhawk was American soul and R&B. Here’s a fine selection of that music in this two-disc collection of R&B from the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.

Jardine’s album was recorded in three glorious weeks in June 1969, at Sounds Aquarian Studios, a stone’s throw from that justifiably famous fashion hub, Carnaby Street. The sessions were fun. Polydor was supposed to release the album. Musicians dropped in to say "hello" and ended up on the record (uncredited) - among them Peter Frampton, Andrew "Andy" Bown (Herd and Status Quo), and Brian Appleyard (drummer from East of Eden). Singer Mickey Cox had been in Robert Plant’s pre-Led Zeppelin group The Band of Joy - it was Cox, in fact, who became their singer when Plant left the band. But suddenly, thanks to band management problems, the LP was shelved…

Some like it Sexy is curiously watchable due to its rough hand held camera approach to filmmaking, endless attempts to wed nearly all the action with the title song (plus some surprising top 40 material) and many nostalgic London locales. There's even some low rent surrealism- most noteworthy is the way Peter's conquests are inter cut with scenes of meat being cut up, for some dubious un-pc symbolism. Fans of Hammer films will no doubt be aghast to find twin sisters Mary and Madeleine Collinson the stars of Twins of Evil in some fairly scandalous scenes. There's much kitsch value as well with the unavoidable mindbending LSD sequence and Winter's dedicated follower of fashion, rivaling Austin Powers in his choice of Carnaby Street fashions. The film wasn't released until two years after it was made, apparently in its original version it was not explicit enough and Winter had to shoot some crude `sexy' inserts using very obvious body doubles to ensure a sale..
