Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

THE MOD FUN : Past Forward (1995)

Used to be quite fond of this lot back in the day. Even had some rare cassette tapes etc from fanzines - wish I knew where they were now!!  Sounds ok on a re- listen (is that a word ??) - nothing earth shattering but well crafted, competent, and a decent live act.

Coming up : More Deaf School, The Direct Hits & The Long Ryders...


  1. great band that never made it.....

    i heard they are back in new jersey playing and recording - maybe just a rumor ?

    nice to hear the stuff and You give them the chance to be rediscovered.
    thanx mein freund

  2. Very Good Stuff !
    Thanks Skamanc.
