Modcast #64: My Business, Your Pleasure

.. Modcast #64: My Business, Your Pleasure

Welcome modsters one and all. I think this show is especially good. You know how sometimes you just know something works, something clicks, something fits like a glove. That's this modcast. And that's a good sign. A sign that things are getting back to the way they should be, with me posting a new show every week, instead of only every so often as has happened this past summer. But, no more, I'm back and I've got lots of good stuff, like the latest from the Modfather, "This Old Town" (it even sounds like a Jam title doesn't it?), some soulful sounds from Smokey, and some floor shakers from the likes of The Moog, Schocking Blue, and the Walnut Dash.



I am curious to know what people think of The Selecter cover of Do Nothing. E-mail me at rob@mistersuave.com and let me know if you like it or not. Is it mustard or pants?

Modcast #63: Mod for the Summer

.. Modcast 63: Mod for the Summer

Welcome to Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World, I opened today's show with a track from a band called Airborne Toxic Event, and even though they're out of Los Angeles man they sound a lot like a british band with obvious influence from Franz Ferdinand and the Fratellis. The rest of the show is equally as good. I think there is pretty much something for everyone here -- except for the Def Leppard crowd (you know who you are, now leave me alone and learn to like better music).

  • The Airborne Toxic Event -- Does This Mean You're Moving On?
  • Tsar -- Wanna Get Dead
  • Pristine - King Without a Crown
  • The Rifles -- One Night Stand
  • The Mary Onettes -- Void
  • The Procession -- Major and Minor
  • The Lodger -- Kicking Sand
  • Mando Diao -- Paralyzed
  • Crawling Walls -- Tell Me Why
  • Paul Bevoir -- Maybe Not
