Every Little Bit Hurts

Brenda Holloway – what a voice, what a song.

And Brenda Holloway is coming to Britain.  Modstock takes place in London next week, celebrating 50 years of mods.  Brenda Holloway and the Velvelettes are on the bill.  What a treat.

Modstock was one of the subjects on the Robert Elms programme on Radio London 94.9 yesterday (8 April 2014), where there was a discussion on all things Mod.  Full of the confidence that can only come from having just made a Betty Crocker cake, I rang in.  It was a 3 hour show – if you want to jump to the part that could possibly, on another planet, be called ‘the best bit’ jump to 1 hour 49 minutes in, and hear me talk about my beloved pinstriped fan-pleated skirt, the Corn Exchange, the Milk Bar and the wonder of Horlicks.
