Modcast #188: More than just a dog and pony show

Welcome to Mr. Sauve's Mod Mod World.  Get things off to a rockin' start with the opening track to Social Distortion's forthcoming album due out later this month called "Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes". Ya gotta appreciate a band that opens with an instrumental, especially a cool, garage tune like "Road Zombie".  Reminded me of The Goldstars who opened their 2010 EP in a similar style. Anyhow, it's good that Social D has a new album, and from my first few spins it's pretty much what you'd expect a little Stonesy, a little Hank Williams, a whole helluva lotta punk rock guitar.

The show goes on from there with a swaggering rock and roll arrogance that even blows me away. And I put it together. Go figure.
