From The Vaults Modcasts #42 & #50 (2007)

Once more into the vault my friends, once more into the vault. Step back in time, to a time when the modcast was young and fresh. Take a giant step outside your current listening constraints and journey with me all the way back to those oh so suave days of 2007. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a couple classic modcasts that I think you'll enjoy. Again.

Modcast #50: Wanna Know A Secret?

Welcome to Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World, I've got lots of really interesting songs this week including some ska from Canada's Kingpins, some new stuff from Mando Diao and the Kaiser Chiefs, and some very excellent power pop from Permanent Green Light. Not to mention a bit of soul music, not the least of which is from Ms. Amy Wnehouse. If you want to get a look at Amy Winehouse and see her do Rehab live skip down below to where I've got the video posted. If you haven't heard Rehab yet you absolutely need to check this out. It's amazing how much she has perfectly captured the sixties soul sound. If you've got a question for me drop me a line at
