Fiery Bird meets with cool jazz and an interview with Mark Baxter gave me some insights in the world that forms the backdrop of his work, the films and books sparked by his curiosity to get under the layers of what appears to current culture as an older archived way of living, listening and moving still to inspire new generations of modernists, what better to herald it with a pic from some of the modernists of my day above. 

We talked about his various work, passion for Tubby Hayes and his story, Ready Steady Girls, the book that celebrates the Mod woman, his collaborations with Woking sons Paolo Hewitt (The Mumper) and Paul Weller – he produced Jawbone the film that Paul Weller wrote the sound track for and wrote the fantastic narrative that Paul voices on this short film the Devil, from Emma Rosa Dias.
