Magic Mod


We were introduced to the Magic Mod down at a gig in Carnaby Street.. Knocked off our feet at his wizardry and seeing him go from strength to strength, we got in touch and asked if he was up for a chat.. 


G-C - What got you interested in being a magician 

 MM - When I was 6 years old I got a Paul Daniels magic set and from then on I was hooked. I also thought it would be a cool career.

 How long does it take to master 

 Since I was 6 years old, I'm now 24 and I'm still learning now!

 Where was your first gig 

 The Half Moon in Crawley, there was only about 12 people there...but it was a start!

 You done a trick for us down in Carnaby Street where a card slid along the floor by itself, still trying to suss how you done it?  

 I didn't go to Hogwarts for nothing! ;)

 What is your favourite trick and what gets the best reaction 

 My best trick is probably turning up on time! That goes down a storm when it happens. But magic wise, it would be making a whole deck of cards disappear from a spectators hands leaving just a block of ice.

 How difficult is it to come-up with something new 

 It is about as easy as winning the Lottery! But when you do come up with a new trick it is a great feeling and worth the wait.

 Who’s idea was it with the name The Magic Mod 

 My sister and her husband, when I was at a party there (showing off with a deck of cards) some bright spark thought it would be a good idea for me to do magic for a living. I must thank them as it has been one of the best decisions of my life as I have made friends with many of heroes!

 If you could perform a trick to anyone, who would that be 

 John Lennon (passed) - I've said this all the time, I would have loved to have performed to him. He has been a massive influence on me since I was a kid.

 Liam Gallagher (present) - What's there to be said the blokes cool as fuck.  

 Who are your influences 

 John Lennon (style), Liam Gallagher (coolness), David Blaine (magic).

 What got you in to the scene 

 I was brought up into it and then everything else just fell into place

 Favourite band 

 The Jam because they are magicians in their own right.

 Top ten tracks you are currently listening to 

 1. Rearrange - Miles Kane

 2. Burning Sky - The Jam  

 3. This old heart of mine - The Isley Brothers

 4. For you love - The Yardbirds

 5. Fuck Forever - The Baby Shambles

 6. Dreaming of you - The Coral

 7. Tracks of my Tears - Smokey Robinson

 8. Stone Love - The Supremes

 9. London Calling - The Clash  

 10. Live Forever - Oasis

 What epitomizes the word mod for you 

 Stylish, good music, sharp dress sense, and look cool from any angle - and have an eye for a rocker ;).

 Favourite item of clothing 

 There are too many items to choose from - it would be like trying to choose my favourite child (if I had one), it's impossible.

 March of The Mods, Reading, 15th March (see you there) what else do you have lined-up for 2015

 Many corporate events have been confirmed, which is great. I will be doing more filming around London for Youtube videos and to promote myself. Who knows what this year has in store for me. 

 Cheers for the interview….

 Keep the Faith
