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.

    Modcast #520: Blue-Skied Soul

    Modcast #520: Blue-Skied Soul

    I'm back! That's right modcast lovers, like it or not I am back after a slightly longer vacation than usual. Just like Richard Milhouse Nixon, I'm tanned, rested and ready. So, naturally I flashback to 1968 when music was being mixed into new shapes and forms, often by older stars who were desperate to stay relevant. But also by up and comers looking to hit it big with a sort of bubblegum pop aimed at teens and their rapidly expanding wallets.  So you get some pretty cool, and pretty interesting music in the roughly five year period of '67 to '71.  Much of that was America's easy, breezy version of blue-eyed soul. Known as sunshine pop, I've always said it could just as easily been called blue-skied soul as it was so tied to California blue skies, with bits of soul, psych and folk mixed in with a sort of sun and fun vibe.As always find a complete track list plus a bonus third set of music, and all the important links to all the important stuff over on the modcast homepage.And keep up with me between modcasts:Twitter - https://twitter.com/mistersuaveFacebook - https://www.facebook.com/modmodworldInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/mrrobsuave/Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/7GRj5El2drXcG7sPay6BWv?si=Vq4MIa56Sm6MryFjStlMwwiHeart Radio - https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-mr-suaves-mod-mod-world-31024876/Subscribe  with iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/mr-suaves-mod-mod-world/id154325887Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World.

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!!
