Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World

Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World

Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World is the web's original modcast celebrating the music of the mod lifestyle, as well as mod-influenced music from past eras. You'll hear everything from power pop to rock, soul to ska, acid jazz to lounge, and whatever falls in between. One of the things which has impressed me most in life was the mod movement in England, which was an incredible, youthful thing." -- Pete Townshend, The Who, 1968 Catalogued here are the sights and sounds of mod as I understand it. Much will be familiar to other mods. I realize many narrow-minded people, mods and others, will look at much of this and dismiss it as not truly "mod." So be it. However you view it, I hope you enjoy exploring these sights and sounds as much as I did putting them together.

I hope you're ready for some mod groovers as this modcast is bringing you the swinging sounds of sexploitation, courtesy of Carnaby street.  I've got three sets of down and dirty, floor shakin' tracks, for you, all with a very cinematic feel to them.

Here comes some fun. This modcast is sort of a mini-invitational. A while back I got this crazy idea, what are the faves of my faves? What do some of the bands and artists I love, who I've featured on the modcast in the past, what do *they* love? Here's the first few from Friends of Cesar Romero, The Happy Somethings, and Star Collector, along with some new tunes, and some can't miss blasts from the past.

It is time for my annual faves show where I highlight what I enjoyed from the previous year's smorgasbord of musical offerings. It took me longer than I expected to comb through all of last year's new releases again and try and come up with what were my favorites. Somebody asks you for your favorite band or artist, and you respond immediately. Then a moment later you think well what about so and so? Or what about that one ...

It's Christmas here at Suave HQ which means it's time for another Suave office Christmas party. Joining me once again is DJ Ken.

But to our great shame we've never had a whole soul only show for Christmas. Until now. We're funkin' things up with Christmas soul t...

Summertime and the livin' is easy. I've been on my now annual summer sabbatical where I take a few weeks off from my job as modcaster general and try to get out and some fun in the sun.  But, I had to get back to this because so much cool new music has been coming out of late and I really want to be sharing it with you all.

Now coming to you from the middle of summer, tunes that sound like pleasure. This one has been a while coming and while most all the songs are new, they aren't as fresh as I had hoped.  Still its a fun collection of power pop, garage rock, sixtiesish stuff, and even an instrumental! Tune in and your ears will thank you.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so the saying goes. Of course, they also say one man's trash is another man's treasure. In the continuing tradition of terrible ideas for a modcast this week Mary Queen of Cosmos joins me on an audio podcast for a visual topic: album covers. She delivers her list of albums with striking covers and we play some of the songs to give you the flavor of it all as well.
