Modcast #97: Now is the Time

Welcome to Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World. It is hot hot hot here in the pacific northwest. After almost no spring to speak of, seattle is finally jumping feet first into summer. So, I've happily put together a show that plays well in any climate, but especially seems suited for the summer sun we're enjoying here right about now. From pop to mod with a few stops in between this modcast is going to quickly become one of your favorites. You've got the trad mod sounds of the Bishops, some acid jazz goodnes from Mother Earth, and serious sixties vibes from The Monks, Boyce & Heart and The Free Design. Tune in, turn on and enjoy yourself.
  • The Triangles -- Meat Blanket
  • The Peasants -- I Close My eye
  • Boyce & Heart -- Countess
  • The Rebounds -- Help Me
  • Mother Earth -- Riot on 103rd St.

From the Vaults: Modcast 24 Don't Give Up On A Good Thing

Once more into the vault my friends, once more into the vault. Step back in time, to a time when the modcast was young and fresh. Step back to the end of the summer of '06. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again.

Welcome to episode #24 of Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World. This week, you will be treated to some most excellent tracks ranging from mod, to soul, to rock and even some late sixties ska. And, there's a great Swing Out Sister video too. What more could you possibly want from a podcast?

Bonus Video: Somewhere in the World by Swing Out Sister

Modcast #96: Where's the Sunshine?

You know what's good about this world? It's good when local boys make good. That's what the lead off band of this modcast --The Blakes-- have done, made good. Since I'm in Seattle and they're from here, that make's 'em local to me. This particular modcast is jam packed with very listenable songs. Got something new from Sloan, something cool from the Kaiser Chiefs, something very mod from the Len Price 3 and something obscure from 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't be Wrong. So get ready to have a blast. As always you can e-mail me at rob@mistersuave.com
