Mark Feld (on the right), a 15-year-old sharp dressed mod -who would later on become known as glam superstar Marc Bolan- captured with his then buddies Miki Simmonds & Peter Sugar in Stamford Hill, London, during a photo shoot on the emerging mod scene by Don McCullin for Town magazine in 1962.
The magazine article describes these young dudes as “faces” and “Beau Brummels of the rising generation” who spend part of their time and money on girls and clothes.
“The most important thing to them is their clothes: they have cupboards and shelves bulging with suits and shirts, often designed by themselves, in bright, strange and violent colours. In their vocabulary they, and the few other contemporaries of whom they approve, are described as ‘Faces’ -the necessary ingredients are youth, a sharp eye for dressing and a lack of mercy towards the rest of the world”
Town magazine, 1962
In 1963, young Mark Feld went on to record his first ever track, a demo called 'Mrs Jones' at Joe Meek's recording studio at 304 Holloway Road (the original but extremely noisy version here & a brilliant cover here) and the rest is well known history.
