The Spitfires - A Thousand Times album review

Album Review

The Watford mod-wannabes aren't so much meat’n’potatoes as cabbage boiled to death

Whatever happened to Mod? With its embrace of soul, jazz and R&B, and a cosmopolitan view of both fashion and the world, this was once the most forward-looking of youth cults. Sadly, as exemplified by this, the second album by Watford quartet The Spitfires, the movement has backed itself into a cul-de-sac of conservatism, convention and parochialism.
