From the Vaults: Modcast #38 Mod, Rock, & Soul

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 2007. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again.

Modcast #38 complete with a little soul and a lot of rock and roll.
  • The Mosquitos -- Put Your Foot Down
  • The Machine -- Nobody Wants You
  • The Equals -- Black Skinned Blue Eyed Boys
  • The Untouchables -- I Spy (For the FBI)
  • Straight Up -- One Out All Out
  • The Rakes -- 22 Grand Job
  • Dirty Pretty Things -- Doctors & Dealers
  • The Cogburns -- Rollers Rip
  • The New Breed -- Unto Us
  • Yardbirds -- Drinking Muddy Water
  • Risk -- Should Have Known Better

Bonus Video: Here's "Left, Right & Center" by Lord Large, featuring vocals by Dean Parish. Interestingly, this song was penned by a young, teen-aged Paul Weller, well before his days with the Jam, and shows the obvious influence of soul music at a time when you would have thought he was more focused on power-pop bordering on punk. Of course the soul influence would resurface on later Jam albums. Lucky for us we have this now.
