ML 3534.6 .G7 P47 2009

“May 1964 saw major gang-style battles break out in British resort communities between the Mods and the Rockers.  The tensions between the two groups had been developing for several years….

Mods, Rockers, and the Music of the British Invasion chronicles the development of … music through the iconic artists who inspired the movement….  In addition to analyzing British rock in the context of the British youth culture of the early 1960s, … Perone also analyzes the reasons that the British bands came to so thoroughly dominate the record charts and airwaves in the United States.”  -book jacket
