The summer so I feel it’s time to trot this song out. You have to like this, right? I mean without this song we just don’t have the ‘Modern Life Is Rubbish’ album. And with this video concludes your Mod Monday!
Now defunct Pan American Airlines has a rich history in the international airline industry and its own small place in the annals of retro fashion. The smart stewardess uniforms with infamous hats have become cultural icons for the time. Rather than recreate a costume that would look silly today, pay homage to this stylish look […]
Still a little bummed Keith Relf died. His look is so iconic with his haircut (and those bangs!), the shades, and the vocals. Heck, even Liam rocks his look. And with this video concludes your Mod Monday!
I love the coral, rose, and beige colors in this dress. It just says Springtime to me. The white mesh panels on the bodice is an unexpected and charming detail. You can of course match this with beige or coral heels, but try an unexpected color if you’re feeling daring, and tie it together with […]
That hammond organ probabaly took 10 people to take that off state. Oomph. This live video from 1967 is from the original Spencer Davis Group with Steve Winwood. Tim Burgess and the Charlatans – eat your heart out. And with this video that concludes your Mod Monday!
It’s tough to choose a favorite Who song but if you held me down I’d probably say it was this song. I think the video really makes it too. So, so, very 60’s. And if you had to make me pick a top 10 song of the 60’s from the Mod/Backbeat scene then this would […]
Thank you twitter recommends! I came across this group of guys who are holding a “Mod” podcast! How fun! They’ve had Martin Freeman on the show and that alone sealed the deal for this guy however in addition to that I’ll mention Miles Kane appeared once as well so there’s that too. It’s a well recorded show […]
If you’re a Cast fan and have a trained ear you’ll notice this chord progression is very similar to Sandstorm. What I like about John Power and Co. is that they tended to show their influences, be firmly rooted in them, but also provide their own interesting take on it. And this video completes your […]
Awwww Ronnie Lane. I’m still sad about him dieing. The song is Happy Days Toy Town off of the “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake” album, released in 1968, and if I had to point some kind of “without x then y never would have happened” situation then I would say without this song then I don’t quite […]
It’s the same old song, THE SAME OLD SONG!
