Mod-A-Day: The Killermeters

The Killermeters were just one of hundreds of mod revival acts that sprang up in the late 70s, and not particularly memorable. However, their single "Twisted Wheel" was one of the first mod singles I ever heard and so I've always had a sort of soft spot for it in my heart. Their sound was pretty typical sixties styled power pop, at times a little more punky, at other times incorporating horns for a more soulful sound. While they never released an album during their run, a few years back a compilation of their singles and b-sides was released, called Metric Noise.
