Modcast #389: Unofficial Tiki Oasis 2017 International Intrigue Mix

As is his usual modus operandi Ken from the cocktail syndicate is back with the officially Unofficial Tiki Oasis 2017: International Intrigue mix. It's really chapping my hide to have to listen to this since for the first time in a few years I'm not attending Tiki Oasis. I had to buy a roof and some siding for the house --neither of which I ever get to really look at you know seeing as they're on the outside and I'm on the inside-- which really put a dent in the old pocketbook. And following on the heels of my trip to New York, where the Suave's spent money like drunken sailors on leave, and ahead of an upcoming mele kalikimaka holiday expedition to the Hawaiian islands, money is tight. Like .... well never mind what it's tight like. Get a cocktail and loosen up for a good time.

Modcast #388: Deep Diving the Revival

Welcome to Modcast #388 in which I deep dive the mod revival and post-punk late '70s early '80s mod revival this week. There are a few here that most of you will know, but much of the rest is a bit more obscure. But no less better for being less renowned that's for sure. If you know 'em all, and if you don't sit back and enjoy the show.

Modcast #387: Twophers

It's double the listening pleasure, twice as nice, two times the fun, on all new Modcast #387: Twophers. Because, I'm playing two tracks from every artist this week. Started out with a couple of bands that I just couldn't decide which track to include, and so I thought what the hell I'll play both. And, so here we are with a whole of show of double doses of musical goodness.

Two great tastes that taste great together, power pop and punk. Or, pop punk for short. I hesitate to call this a pop punk show but definitely leans in that direction. If you like those original pop punkers The Ramones, or Nikki & The Corvettes or The Go-Gos or The Muffs, Green Day, The Presidents of the United States, The Fastbacks, and so on then you are going to dig this week's show.
