This Is Mod

This Is Mod - Complete Collection


Reviewer: Chris Woodstra, All Music Guide


The British mod revival may have been a fad, driven by fashion and most of the time too derivative, but it did produce some fun singles. Since many of the bands that jumped on the bandwagon only released singles or poorly distributed albums for independent labels, much of this music has been hopelessly lost over the years; This Is Mod, Vol. 1 collects many of the admittedly third-rate (though enjoyable) revival bands for the first time on CD. In 21 tracks, this disc provides the nearly complete recorded output of the Circles, the Amber Squad, the Cigarettes, the Deadbeats, the Letters, the Nips, the Odds, and the Sussed (whose novelty record, "I've Got Me Parka" takes a fun look at the fad) -- with each band receiving detailed biographical sketches. For specialists and fetishists, this disc is essential. For most, it's simply excessive.
The second volume of the This Is Mod series covers more mod revivalists: the Killermeters, the Exits, the V.I.P.'s, the Crooks, the Same, Teenage Filmstars, Terry Tonik, and the Purple Hearts. Only the Purple Hearts came close to being major contenders, but all provide a fascinating look at the short-lived genre.
Volume three of the This is Mod Series focuses on the short-lived Diamond Records, a London-based label which sought to keep the mod revival on life support during the mid-'80s -- and nearly all of the label's output is here with the exception (thankfully) of the obscure Oi! band, the Business. Most of the bands, which includes the Scene, Long Tall Shorty, the Moment, the B Team, the Way Out, and the Rage, were more '60s purists than the Jam, but it's not much of a stretch to lump these groups in with their late-'70s predecessors. It is, however, hard to believe this stuff was being done as late as 1986.
Modities continues the series' exhaustive mining of mod revival rarities, ranging from the more distinctive and noteworthy Lambrettas, Merton Parkas, and the Accidents to the hopelessly obscure Directions, the Nightriders, the Onlookers, the Reputation, and the Untouchables (U.K.). As with the first three installments, this may be excessive but it sure is fun.
The strength of Modulations gains momentum with each release. This release combines a further 22 tracks of rare Mod tracks from the Mod revival period of 1979-1983, with most of the tracks appearing on CD for the first time. Acts featured include Log Tall Shorty, The Purple Hearts, The Killermeters, The Teenbeats and Amber Squad.
The Volume 6 of this mod collection takes us to America. The album features 23 tracks all taken from the Mod revival period of the early 80'sand all by bands from the U.S.A.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real income.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
