    From the Vaults: Modcast #9 - All Mod All the Time

    Step back in time, to a time when the modcast was young and fresh. Step back to July of '06. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again.

    I've picked out some good tracks for you this week, if I do say so myself. A little something for everyone -- some old stuff, some new stuff, some rock, some soul, some very mod, and some only reminiscent.

    Count Five -- Peace of Mind

    Interesting interview with the Libertines’ Carl Barat about the band and it’s eventual demise(sorry you have to suffer through a short commercial at the beginning)

    Modcast #87: Rockin' With the Mods

    Welcome to Mr. Suave’s Mod Mod World, and it’s a good, good world this week indeed with the latest release from one of my fave Britpop bands The Charlatans. I had to get that Charlatans track in there in order to let you know about the free Charlatan’s album available for download at Xfm. You can grab the whole thing right now, right here.

    But I digress. In truth the rest of the modcast is a bit out of step with that opening. It’s got cool, groovy sounds beginning to end. Anyhow, I recommend you grab yourself a libation, sit back, relax and enjoy some cool swingin’ sounds. It’s time you were Rockin’ with this Mod.

    Modcast #86: Take a Tip From a Tip Top Mod

    Welcome to Mr. Suave’s Mod Mod World, episode #86 in which we have a few interesting connections. Opening act Elton Motello frontman Alan Ward had once been in another band with future Damned member Bryan James, so maybe it’s no surprise that both bands produced great punk rock. Another connection made in the show is between more 70s Brit punks, this time the move from Chelsea to Generation X. Lots of pitch perfect power pop in this week’s show up from the likes of Martha & the Muffins, Clive Culbertson, The Briliant Corners, Fast Eddie and more. And if you head on over to the modcast homepage you can check out this week’s bonus video from Beulah. Thanks for listening.

    • Elton Motello – Get The Guy
    • Sit N’Spin – I’m Sick
    • The Untold Fables – I Try
    • The Aromatics – Maureen
    • The Brilliant Corners – Friday Saturday Sunday Monday
    • Beulah – Silver Lining
    • Headlights – Catch Them All
    • Martha & The Muffins – Hide and Seek
    • Clive Culbertson – Time to Kill
    • Chelsea – Urban Kids
