05.15.07: MOD REVIVAL
Tonight on WE'RE GONNA BE TIMELESS we will be playing 2 hours of "MOD REVIVAL"
"The Mod Revivalists stuck to the R&B-informed rock & roll that distinguished the original '60s mods, but the sound was harder and more frenetic, and often only implied the music's R&B roots. Since the original wave of mod bands in the '60s only included a few of bands -- (the Small Faces, the Who, etc.), there were actually more mod groups in the revival than there were in the '60s. Furthermore, since most of the original mods only performed in cover bands (with the exception of the aforementioned groups) or simply danced to Motown records, the revival was the first wave of mod bands to rely on original material." -allmusic.com Tonight we will be spinning 2 hours of the finest Mod revival bands of the '70s and '80s including The Secret Affair, Direct Hits, Squire, The Times, Makin' Time, The Chords and many others.
