Mod n’ Mini Night Gig – 4th April

The Sha La La’s Mod band will be playing originals and covers, and promoting their new track (Keep On) Risin’ Up To Love, supported by The High-s, at the Ace on Thursday 4th April’s Mod n’ Mini Night ( 6pm – 11pm). Free Entry.

In the year Bradley Wiggins helped put Mod and 6Ts style back on the international stage, it’s nice to know there are a few bands out there determined to add a new spin and twist to a time-served musical force.

And just a month after the latest deluxe re-issues featuring The Jam, on the strength of The Sha La La’s (Keep on) Risin’ up to love EP, the flame still burns.

Think back to the urgency of Weller, Foxton and Buckler’s first LP In The City, and speed 35 years forward (yes, it’s that long) to find a similarly-driven trio inspired by that spirit of classic soul and high-octane guitar-based r’n’b.

Where The Jam’s seminal debut material showcased everyone from Small Faces and The Who through to Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, all that and more is woven into the grooves of this South-East three piece’s latest output.

Lead track (Keep On) Risin’ Up To Love has shades of The Who’s I Can’t Explain and the feel of a Weller classic, and you could so easily see Otis giving this fine track his all on Ready Steady Go way back when.

Losin’ It has a touch of a James Taylor Quartet cover of a long-forgotten TV theme, but with added zip and plenty of old Motown, Atlantic, Northern Soul and Stax magic.


Here we are again at the start of another tough trading year. Like you we will be looking for the best price for the services to run the business. So I thought this maybe a good time to out line how you can get the best deal from us. Customers who use us regularly will already know what to do to get a discount. For those who are not familiar with the way we do things, here is an out line of  the discount structure.

Please do not come to us for the first time with one item expecting a discount on the price we give you.  We judge each job on its merits and give you the best price for your repair. You can get discounts for:

  • More than one item. If you and a friend have a broken faring each, club together that way you can get a lower unit cost.
  • If you belong to a club ask them to speak to us we are happy to arrange a club discount.
  • If you are a regular user of our service private or business you can get a discount. Some of our private customers are serial bike restorers making them eligible for this discount.
  • Trade discount, speaks for its self.
  • These discounts only apply to repairs.

Discounts have always been part of the way we run the business, it is our way of looking after our customers along with our friendly service.
