Modcast #411: Behind The Music Vol. II

After a dozen years of modcasting the tables were finally turned in episode 400 when I was the one getting grilled by Mary Queen of Cosmos in Mr. Suave Behind The Music volume one. And now it's time for Behind The Music volume two with more on scenes, fanzines, the intersection of the mod scene with cocktail culture and the beginnings of Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World.

Listen Now

Check out Modcast #400: Mr. Suave Behind The Music Vol. I.
Mary Queen of Cosmos sits me down and tortures me with booze to get the real story of how I ended up here. From The Bangs to The Who to Edwin Starr to oh so many more.

Instead of bonus videos this time around you get bonus flyers and fanzines. I've uploaded tons of old flyers from the 80s southern California mod scene and you can check them all out here. And since we have a nice discussion about the fanzine I edited, Insight Out, I've got some cover shots here as well. From the first cut and paste issue to the full on desktop published issues. One and done, one year five issues. It was a lot of fun interviewing bands like Bad Manners and Buster Bloodvessel, The Skeletones, The Idea, The Funseekers and lots more.
