the way my dad tells it...in newcastle england for the most part everyone that had manual jobs was a teddy boy or a rocker...

the mods were mostly students and people with office jobs...and interestingly there were not many of them at all.

he adds that the mods wouldn't dare pick a fight with the rockers.

i was there during the 80's mod revival and there were lots of new mods on the streets,along with punks and skinheads...i myself was a psychobilly.

my dad also says it rubbish that the mods dressed better in the best gear...

"yeah we wore leather when we were on our bikes but to go out we wore drape suits hand made by tailors that cost 5 weeks wages and the mods just wore jeans,sweatshirts and daft scarves"

I've never seen a smart dressed mod.  They are always clad in those unclean looking parka jackets.
Teddy boys had died out by the late seventies.  Punks were a big scene during that period.  Due to the longevity of the music scene, Rockers have always been a constant, always going back to the classic leather and denim look.
The gang scene has always evolved to match the changing music scene.

It could well be that certain areas in England back in the mid-60's
were heavier with one group than the other. Also, I have it from
sources that there were indeed some Mods who were more arty/
coffee house types, and then some who were a bit rougher. This
latter group I believe was the genesis of what would become the
original Skinhead movement (not nazi types, but the 2-tone/ ska
type).

I just remember growing up in the early 80's in L.A./ O.C. and there
was a pretty healthy "Mod" revival scene in Southern California at
that time. Lot's of Punks and Skins and Mods and New Wavers
and Hessians ( kids into heavy metal and stoner rock ). Interesting
times back then.

Going to hardcore punk shows back then was a bit crazy. You had
these "organizations" like L.A.D.S.( L.A. Death Squad ), Circle 1 Family,
FFF, and Suicidals who would seriously beat the krap out of each other
in the pit ( and anyone else unfortunate enough to get in their way
who they decided they did'nt like ).

This was the film that was marketed as Rappin Hood. Gang films don't get much tacky than this.
Could this be the original gangster rap flick?
Its bad, reeeeeal bad.

My favorite film featuring greasers is a low budget flick directed by Robert Rodriguiz (Too much effort to spell check his surname) that goes by the name of Road Racers.

Gotta give a shout out to Deathwish 3.

Is it just me, or does sly stallone look a lot like joey from friends in that pic? "Heyyy, how you do-in?"
The link you posted takes us to main board index :cry: . Anyway, I remember this movie from the 80’s, Bad Boys, where Sean Penn beats someone with a pillow full of soda cans and becomes the leader of the prison.

I've never watched Scum but as far as I know Bad Guys isn't a remake. It's a cool movie, try to watch it.

I thought it was a good film, wouldn't really call it a gang film though
