Whitsun weekend in May 1964, Mods and Rockers clashed in the seaside resorts of Clacton, Margate, Brighton and Bournemouth. This could maybe be the soundtrack except I'm sure some of these tunes came out after 1964, but the idea is ...Rockers on side one and Mods on side two.
I'm sure at the time that there wasn't as much rockabilly being heard overseas as there was here so I've tried to put in mostly English rockers here alongside the obvious American artists, as well as Johnny Hallyday from France and I'm not sure where Heinz is from. Don't be scared off by the Cliff Richard, it's a good rockin' number from before he got wussified, and the Tommy Steele song is from before he turned into a 'Knee's Up Mother Brown' type of English pub song singer. The Eddie Cochran song is the B-side from his last single, sadly he was killed in England in a car accident while on tour with Gene Vincent in 1959.
Britain was the last holdout for rockabilly, it had pretty much gone underground in North America, most artists turning to country and western or going the opposite way into a more garage punk sound.
The Mod songs here are mostly Northern Soul songs with a few other things thrown in for fun, Tom Jones, kind of a Welsh blue eyed soul man, The Lambretta Twist must have been used in a scooter commercial, and Jaqueline Taieb's french ode to Mods and Rockers.

Oh ! and the title is a quote from one of the judges presiding over subsequent charges that were laid after the riots.

"Are you a mod or a rocker?" "I'm a mocker." This is amazing. Great idea, great execution. Wish I'd thought of it. Hats of to the mighty Greaseball.

Hey, how come the mods got stuck on side two?!? (Just kidding!) Put this one right between the American Graffiti and Quadrophenia soundtracks.

Eddie Cochran was killed in my hometown, a quiet little place called Chippenham. There's a plaque on the side of the very unprepossessing road marking the spot his car crashed. Every year (around this time, late April) there's a 'Eddie Cochran Rock N Roll Festival' held to mark the date of his death. People come from all round the world on their motorbikes to watch bad rockabilly bands in the pubs. Very cool.
