Modcast #91: Oh So Pretty

Kicking this show off is the brand new single Supernatural Supercilious from REM. I'm not a big REM fan, but in 1984 they were breaking new ground in power pop to be sure, and here there are 25 or so years later pounding a really great song, one of the best they've produced in a really long time. Got some great stuff for you on this week's modcast including, The Frowning Clouds, The Charms, The Standells, The Expressos, and a little something from the very earliest days in REM's existence. Be sure to check out the bonus videos from The Charms and The Nice down below. Questions? E-mail me.

Modcast #89: Another Reason To Go On Living

Welcome to Mr. Suave’s Mod Mod World. First off a big thank you to Ken from the Shingles for holding down the fort last week with a great show. So great I had to dig up a Motown cover of the fab four to try and compete. And, I've got a few other covers including one by The Eddies from their brand new disk Twice Around the World, which is garnering some rave reviews -- not bad considering it's all covers.
