Ho, ho, ho, mod kids! It's time for another installment of the now annual Christmas Modcast invitational. That's right, as with all my VIP soirees this one is by invite only. I sent out a limited number of invites and moddoms publicity whores gobbled 'em right up. So, this year, you're going to be treated to a merry mix of seasonal sounds from all manner of podcasters, bloggers and musicians. You'll hear from the kingpin of mod opinion-makers, Warren Peace of We Are The Mods, who's contribution proves that all a good fade takes is a steadily fiddled knob. And from the long reigning queen of mod podcasting, the one and only Penny Lane from Punks & Parkas. Also on board is the prince of power pop promotion, The Ice Cream Man; mod music maven, Modification's Melvyn Fickling, Mr. style and sophistication himself, soul dj Parka Pat; the mod world's favorite guest host, Ken from The Shingles, plus season's greetings from Paradise, The Idle Gossip, RAF, and The Inciters. Finally, rounding out the show is a really fantastic spoken word essay from Mary Queen of Cosmos. Not to be missed. Trust me.

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.

    Welcome to the big post Halloween show, a show so big thirty minutes can't contain it! I want to thank my usual stand-in, DJ Ken from The Shingles, who nicely took over last week to you some great Halloween tunes for his 7th annual halloween modcast. A big thank you and a hearty handshake to Ken for drivin' the hearse last week while I was busy passing out razor blade apples and oxycontin sweettarts. This week I've got great tuneage for you: brand new tracks from French Boutik and The Safes, as well as some great 80s songs, and a whole slew of other stuff.

    You can blame this modcast on honorary producer Mary Queen of Cosmos who was the inspiration for this week's show -- as she often has been in the past as well. Anyhow she recently sent me Otis Redding's Mr. Pitiful which Redding wrote and recorded in the Stax studios in 1964and then released on his 1965 album The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads. But I digress. Ms. Mary challenged me to come up with a playlist to go with the song, and that's how we all endup here listening to some really kick ass music. She's also provided us with an excellent cocktail recipe which you can find on the modcast homepage at mistersuave.com. Trust me you'll want to take this one to heart ... or liver, as the case may be.

    Once more into the vault my friends, once more into the vault. Step back in time, to a time when the modcast was young and fresh. Take a giant step outside your current listening constraints and journey with me all the way back to the spring of 2009. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again. This week on the modcast you will be getting a blast of new tracks from Chris Richards, Beatnic Prestige and Maximo Park. You'll also get treated to some acid jazz Mother Earth, power pop from Bronco Bullfrog and even gospel punk from Mercy Seat. I've got a feeling . . . you're gonna like it.
