Mod-A-Day: The Black Carnations

The Black Carnations were a short-lived German mod/garage band circa 1985-86 that recorded for the Twang label. The group was apparently a side project of some of The Beatitudes. The Black Carnations had a great modbeat sound with healthy doses of sixties psychadelia and R&B, and they boasted a vocalist with unique, captivating, and (at the appropriate times)lilting voice. My Beat The Attitude release is just a six track EP, although there is posthumously produced LP that includes a live concert recording.
