Thanks to the old man, I grew up on a healthy diet of anything & everything, but mod culture perhaps moreso than anything else. The Kinks, The Jam, The Who, and probably my favourite of the bunch, The Small Faces. Every one of their hits is just a tour de force of songwriting prowess and vocals that'll send a shiver down your spine, and I truly believe their 60s output, no matter how limited, is comparable to the very best of that generation. Undoubtedly a singles band, but their albums are stunning, too!
I'll leave it there with one of my favourites. It may be 30 years since he died, but his music is always going to hold a dear place in my heart.
