Beat Bands


The early 60’s beat craze that took hold of the UK was largely ignored by mods, who wanted the original RnB sounds.

They did however take some styles to heart, such as jackets without collars, called the nero style, as worn by the Beatles.

Many of the bands favoured the 3 button suit or jacket with velvet collars, such as those worn by the Stones and the Beatles.

The mods had bands who dressed like them and had taken Georgie Fame, Herbie Goins to Heart, along with Untamed, the Action, the Eyes, the Small Faces and Bow St Runners, Creation, to name but a few, throughout the 60s.
