Mod-A-Day: The Chest

Not only am I late to this party, but it seems the party is over. The party in question is the Spanish mod band The Chest out of Barcelona. I just recently discovered the band on a Spanish blog where I was completely unable to fathom what they were saying, other than that The Chest were a great mod band that --just my luck-- recently broke up. I started digging.

Not that I'm much of a shoveler but it's taken a few days and more than a few dead ends to actuallyl figure out that The Chest were on Bip-Bip Records, and not just a cool mod band, but a damn good mod band. I'm still trying to figure out where to pick up a CD or some such, but in the meantime the and has produced some great videos, so here's a couple to tide you over. Let me know what you find out!
