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.

    Modcast #500: Let Me Spell It Out For Ya

    Modcast #500: Let Me Spell It Out For Ya

    I started this modcast in part because it seemed to me that a lot of great mod bands from the original Southern California scene of the 80s never got their due. My first few shows were dedicated to sharing the music of some those bands and then it just sort of grew from there. Remember back in 2006 the internet was still in its infancy really. Napster had opened up digital music in the 90s, but it still wasn't easy to find music by bands like these online. You couldn't just type their name in google and have a complete playlist wash over you.  So, I thought I'd share what I had. I had digitized a lot of my mod catalog a few years before that and so I had the mp3s and could share them. And now here we are 500 shows later.  I gotta tell you after doing this show for 15 years, this modcast is really the first love letter to myself. I've collected some of my favorite artists and a few of my favorite songs, fitting them all into a strange little theme that Mrs. Suave came up with.  I struggled to figure out a good way to hang 500 shows together for this one particular modcast.  I just couldn't come up with a good theme. And then she dropped this little gem on me.  Let's see if you can figure it out. If you do, let me know. As always find a complete track list, bonus videos,  and all the important links to all the important stuff over on the modcast homepage: http://www.mistersuave.com/2021/12/modcast-500-let-me-spell-it-out-for-ya.html. 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=Vq4MIa56Sm6MryFjStlMwwSubscribe  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!!
