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.

    Modcasst #461: The Lockdown Sound

    Welcome to Mr. Suave's locked down, shut down, quarantined mod world. Periods of upheaval and trauma often result in amazing bursts of art -- physical art, written art, recorded art, all sorts of art. Since right after the global shut down I started scouring the interwebs for artists who were producing new music from lockdown. And I found it. Lots of it. More than one modcast could possibly contain. I'm not gonna do another one, at least not right away. So you'll just have to enjoy this one.

    Modcast #459: In The Style Of

    Modcast #459: In The Style Of

    Long have groups mixed soul with jazz and pop, infusing it all with strings and horns, and often synthesizing throughout. Lots of mod and mod friendly bands have experimented with sophistipop over the years, ultimately paving the way for the acid jazz sound that we've all come to love. Here then are some from across the span of time of the modcast that have dabbled in such sophisticated songmanship.

Always interesting - Great for new discoveries

I got horribly behind on my Mister Suave and decided recently ato try and catch up. I’ve basically been binging on episodes from 2017, 2018, and 2019. What a fun soundtrack to work by! Want an episode to try out first? Try this one: Blast Off # 434. I think I must have discovered 5 new-to-me bands on that episode alone. Some of my favorite episodes are his cocktail lounge editions and his holiday specials. I also love his iPod shuffle episodes and garage rock episodes. If you’re a snotty mod purist you will be disappointed. He has a more expanded palette than that. But no matter what he plays, it’s almost always interesting, funny or just wow. Enjoy.

This podcast covers so much great music that it never disappoints ! Rob Suave does his homework and if you listen, you are going to learn things about the music you love.

Mr. Suave is the man

Been listening for over 10 years and I’m not exaggerating when I say mos of my new music exposure originates from this show or lines of exploration that this show starts me on. Thanks!!
