MODS of 1966

I'm currently setting up the "visual communication"
of a music label called SixtySix. Here comes their logo:
SIXTYSIX
As you can see, they want a basic "MOD" flavor, and I was wondering
what typefaces are appropriated for this period. Think Lambretta, Quadrophenia....
(PS: SixtySix are nice people, not clients with business preoccupations)

Nothin' says Mod like Typeco's Glyphic Neue or the House Gothic family.

excellent logo. for type consider the foundry's monoline in a thick weight.

I agree w/ the "cleaner" fonts that have been suggested such as universe or the monoline one. I might also suggest a classic - frutiger.
Maybe the use of a clean and classic heavy serif font such as the clarendon is a great idea too if you are trying to stay "period" style. The logo - an awesome logo it is - is busy - so stay clean and clear with the supportive type.

Nice and smart logo.

I would use a clean sans-serif, such as Univers (aka Zurich).

with this family it's possible to experiment with lighter or bolder versions and the condensed - normal - expanded variations, too.

Fun.

A fat clarendon or a nice fat script would be historically accurate.
