This week I turn on the way back machine and head back to the punk frontier of the late 70s and early 80s. Why is that? Well I just finished reading the completely fantastic Clothes Clothes Clothes Music Music Music Boys Boys Boys. It's the memoir of Slits guitarist Viv Albertine. For music fanst, the first half of the book is really great recounting Viv's time as a part of the sex pistol inner-circle of friends, her on-again off-again tortured romance with Mick Jones and her encounters with everyone from Chrissy Hynde to Malcolm Mclaren. The second half of the book is even better really, telling the story of the rest of Viv's life and her battles with cancer, men, and depression. It also chronicles Her life as a filmmaker/videographer, wife and mother, and her eventual make-up with music after leaving it behind for almost 25 years. She has crazy will power and her personality is clearly a force of nature. It was a great read and I highly recommend it. So, reading that got me listening to a lot of the music that she wrote about and that got me digging through my old power pop and punk files and I decided rather than play a whole bunch of stuff you all probably know by heart I'd throw out some more obscure and less heard stuff. So I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I have putting this modcast together.

Here in Seattle the days are short, sun sets about 4:30pm. To add woe to that misery it's cold out there these days, sub freezing with black ice everywhere. As per my particular vices it's usually alcohol that warms me up, and nothing does better on a freezing day than some steaming hot alcohol enhanced with a few extras. Add to that a mercurial mix of hot music, and pretty soon you hardly know it's dark and cold. So, mix up something steamy and I'll serve up some songs to help you through the winter.

    This week I'm giving you all the garage rock you can stand, from some sixties originals to some up and coming contemporary bands. After the original garage rock scene of the sixties passed away, it was a decade or so before it really sprang back to life. The punk rock scene of the late seventies fragmented into a number of different sounds, one of which was largely influenced by loud, raw, R&B of sixties bands like The Standells, The Chocolate Watchband, and The Count Five. They mixed the punk of the sixties with the punk of the seventies and incorporated the blues influences of the early Stones, Them and Yardbirds to create a distinct sound. Since then bands have built on those fuzzed out, guitar driven buzzsaw sounds incorporating elements of soul and modern alternative rock to keep the garage sound fresh but still recognizable.

    No doubt one of the biggest parts of mod music for the last 30 or so years has been acid jazz. What is acid jazz? Well broadly speaking I would describe it as a combination of jazz, soul, funk, bebop and sometimes hip hop. Sometimes its all of those rolled into one big fatty of a track. Other times its just one or two of those mixed together for a quick, smooth hit. Acid jazz is a big canvas, and as you'll see on this week's modcast I'm painting with bold broad strokes, like Van Gogh or Cezanne. For me acid jazz is pretty big tent and you can cram a lot under a big tent. For a complete track list, links to bands, and bonus videos be sure to visit the modcast homepage at www.mistersuave.com.
