Modcast #156: Play That Song

Welcome to Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World, modcast #156. In honor of Valentine's Day I've done nothing. Nothing for Valentine, but everything for you dear listener -- and it's a much better story.

Listen Now

I've got a couple of brand new tracks from The Eddies and the Len Price 3. The Eddies are twins Dean and Dale Hoth backed up by legendary producer Earl Mankey on the drums. (If you don't know, Mankey was an original member of Sparks when they started out and later became a producer in the LA undergrounds for The Quick, The Last, Three O'Clock, Long Ryders, Leaving Trains and more.) Their new song shows off Mankey's producing with lots of cool sound affects throughout. The Len Price 3's latest album dropped last month to rave reviews, and you won't get any argument from me. They've outdone themselves again. In addition there are a few supercool, superhero number and some sixties stuff. Nothing not to like here.
