Mod-A-Day: The Pinkees

The Pinkees are a little known power pop band that faded to obscurity after a blip in the British charts in 1982. The band plays pretty straight ahead power pop of the kind that was more popular in the US in 1982 than it was in the UK, and perhaps that's why the band ultimately disappeared. This track "Say What Your Thinking" is one of three reasonably good songs on their self-titled LP, along with the jaunty sixties pop of "Thinking of Her". The video below features what was probably their best song, "Danger Games", and is introduced by John Peel on Top of the Pops.
