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.

Welcome to Mr. Suave's Ska Ska World. That's right, this week's show is crammed full of ska, from original rocksteady to two-tone and everything in between. Ska has been a mainstay of most mods musical catalog dating all they way back to the '60s when original Jamaican ska and rocksteady became a big part of the mods' dancehall scene. Later mods mixed ska and soul, and then ska with punk and power pop which was really what came together in the two-tone scene of the late '70s and early '80s. Since then there have been several ska revivals, some more mainstream and poppy, and others harder with a punk edge. But through it all, ska has always been there for us in one style or form or another.

I've got a special treat for you this week: you don't have to listen to my scratchy voice. Instead, in honor of Tiki Oasis 2014 coming up in San Diego in a couple of weeks, DJ Ken from the Shingles has compiled a really great mix and there are some real gems in here. Tiki Oasis' theme this year is beat-tiki, so you know the tracks on this show are going to be super hip.

In 1979 there was a whole hell of a lot more going on than just the mod revival. You all know the mod revival inside and out I'm sure. From The Jam to the Purple Hearts, the Small Hours, The Aces, to Mods Mayday '79, and of course the release of Quadrophenia. All good stuff. And all been done to death. Heck, I did a big mod revival show a few years ago as part of my Mod Essentials series. It's a good show. As I said, a whole hell of lot of other things were happening in music. Like 1966 and 1994, 1979 was just one of those iconic watershed music years. So on this week's modcast I'm going to explore some of the other things happening at the same time the mod revival was in full bloom.

This week on the modcast it's all acoustic tracks -- raw, stripped down, just the bare bones. I love how acoustic versions of songs can so drastically change a song. Sometimes that stripped down, raw sort of thing is just more pure. Sometimes it makes the song heavier, sometimes lighter and softer. Either way it really does give you something fresh and new. The way so many albums are overproduced these days, for me it's a real treat when an artist does the acoustic thing. It's one reason that MTV's Unplugged series was so incredibly popular. I remember reading that Nirvana's Unplugged album was one of the band's best selling recordings. Acoustical tracks aren't all I want to hear, but I do enjoy the occasional vocal and guitar alone and it certainly can make the songs have a more powerful impact.
