Mod-A-Day: The Terrorways

The Terrorways were a shortlived mod/punk outfit from Australia. Started out in 1979 as the Rooters and --appropriately enough-- shortly changed their name to Terrorways since they'd already garnered something of a reputation with the local authorities. Seems they had quite a following among the local bootboys, skins and punks both. Great if you want a high-energy show, bad if they're known for destroying the venue and at times each other and even the band.

This track, She's A Mod, backed with Never Been to Borstal was their only single. It's no great shakes, has typical '79 sound, but a fun listen none the less.
