What is Mod? Mr. Suave's Mod, Mod World is one of the web's original modcasts celebrating mod music, and mod-influenced music from past eras including soul, ska, garage, sixties R&B power pop, punk, britpop, acid jazz, lounge, easy listening and more.
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 October of '06. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again.
Welcome to episode #23 of Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World. This week I've got The Friday Club, Elastica, Too Many Crooks and Raymond Lefever and His Orchestra among others. This week's mod lineage starts with Blondie, to Elastica to The Sounds. And if you don't know The Sounds, then track down their albums. They're a Swedish rock act that pretty much recreates the look and feel, if not exactly the sound, of Blondie, right down to their platinum blonde lead singer. Below is the video for their song Hit Me, which is strikingly similar to Blondie's 1976 video for X-Offender.
Shel Naylor -- One Fine Day
Joe Jackson -- I'm The Man
Linda Lyndell -- What A Man
Friday Club -- Window Shopping
Blondie -- X-Offender
Elastica -- Waking Up
Sounds -- Song With A Mission
Too Many Crooks -- Too Many Crooks
The Untouchables -- Mandingo
Critical Mass -- You Wanna Brawl
Raymond Lefevre -- Le Gendarme Pop
