So, here's your chance to peek behind the curtain as it were and see what's lurking on my disk drives. Let's set the iPod on shuffle and be on our way.

Makin' Time + The Threads = new release from The Deep Six

Thirty years on down the road mod revivalists of the 80s have been popping up all over the place. Now here's Mark McGounden of Makin' Time and Paul Hooper-Keely of The Threads with a new release from their latest combo The Deep Six.

They just released their third single, the delightfully catchy, bouncy, jangly, jaunty, hook filled It's Happening.


The Deep Six -- It's Happening

Wait, Green Day went Tiki?

I had forgotten that on Nimrod Green Day had gone all Tiki exotica on Last Ride In. It's a pretty good, simple tune with some gently lapping waves, a bit of xylophone (or vibraphone, I can never tell the difference) and simple surf riffs. Who'da thunk it?

Green Day -- Last Ride In (Nimrod, 1997)

Clem Burke gets his due

I've always thought Clem was underrated and never really got that accolades he deserved. Until now. Can't wait to see this one.

From the Vaults - Modcast #143 with guest host Modest Proposal's Neal Augenstein

Okay, with Modest Proposal set to release a new album next month, and livestream an acoustic session this weekend on the modcast facebook page, it seemed like a good time to open up the vaults and dust off this modcast from nearly a decade ago.  Modest Proposal front man Neal Augenstein guest hosted Modcast #143 at the time of the group's then first reunion in 25 years. Great mix of music and a bit of band history from Neal.

Listen Now

Original post Oct. 11, 2009:
One of the first mod singles I ever owned was by Modest Proposal a band out of Washington DC. It was a great single and I played it to death over the years. So, it was cool to get a message from Neal Augenstein, MP's lead singer, with news that the band was planning to reunite. They will be playing November 28th at Comet Ping Pong, on upper Connecticut Avenue in Washington, DC - and the opening band will be The Reply. (Get tix here)

Neal, who now works at radio station WTOP is chronicling the band's reunion. The first post is here and there are several others as well. I wish I could be in DC to see the band back together. If any of you do get to the show take some pictures and let us all know how it turns out.

This week's show is hosted by Neal and it's a crackin' good one. I think you'll enjoy it, I know I did.

The Modern Lovers -- She Cracked
The O'Kaysions -- I'm A Girl Watcher
Petula Clark -- Downtown
Cass Elliot -- Make Your Own Kinda Music
The Jam -- Standards
Jackson 5 -- The Love You Save
Davy Jones -- Girl
The Beatles -- I Wanna Hold Your Hand
The Ramones -- Don't Go
Purple Hearts -- My Life's A Jigsaw
Peter Paul & Mary -- If I Had A Hammer (The Hammer Song)


Modest Proposal -- Nobody Says No



80s Mod band Modest Proposal will livestream a preview of their new album Sunday July 22nd

Livestream on Sun., July 22 at 8pmEDT / 5pmPDT(https://www.facebook.com/modmodworld/)

Watch the video of the livestream here now!


In the 80s we didn't have the internet, you had to really work to find good music. And it was especially difficult to find "mod" bands. You knew the locals of course, but out there in the hinterlands who knew what the hell was going on. Well, somehow I found out about Washington DC's Modest Proposal early on with the release of their 1985 single I've Seen Your Face Before b/w Nobody Says No and I was hooked. The album that came a couple years later was just as good, delivering a dozen sixties influenced, power pop tracks that have stood the test of time pretty well. The internet makes the world a smaller place, as it did in 2009 when Modest Proposal's lead singer Neal Augenstein contacted me to let me know they were have a reunion show. Now they're beyond just reuniting and the band is putting out a new release, part Modest Proposal, and part their later band The Mondays.

So, to celebrate we're hosting a livestream on Sunday, July 22 at 8pm EDT / 5pm PDT on the modacast Facebook page. Original members Neal and Bill Crandall will be on hand to play some songs and answer questions. The new album comes out August 10th, on Detour Records. Only printing 200 CDs, so you're gonna want to get in on the presale for this one!
