Everyone knows that jazz and soul played a big part in the early mod scene, and so of course did the blues. Mostly white British youth became enamored of delta blues belted out by black American musicians in the mid to late '50s. The sounds of Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddly, Lightning Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, and Sonny Boy Williamson swamped London music clubs. A first wave of older players latched on to the music like Alexis Korner, Zoot Money, George Fame, Cyril Davies and Graham Bond. These early blues adopters took other younger musicians under the collective wings and mentored the future stars of the British invasion in rhythm & blues such as Long John Baldry, Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Manfred Mann, Eric Burdon, Rod Stewart and more. It was these stars that the early mods embraced and turned into the icons of their burgeoning teen music scene. This then is the blues in the beginning of the mod era.

In 1980 musical currents were steeped in punk, post-punk, power pop, and new wave. The Specials were riding high off the success of their debut album, and founder Jerry Dammers pushed the band to immediately record a follow-up, More Specials. But rather than continue the DIY punked up ska and reggae they had mastered on their first LP Dammers pushed for doing something entirely different, something new and contrary to the popular sounds of the era. In an interview in mid-1980 Dammers said: "It's time for 2-Tone bands to begin getting experimental. Some of the home-grown ska has started to become a cliche. We've got to start all over again." So he drove The Specials in hard left turn creating an album of easy listening, exotica, lounge music. And young mods like yours truly ate it up. We didn't realize we were cutting our teeth on lounge music and that it was training us up for the coming cocktail revolution of the 1990s. There's no doubt that Jerry Dammers trained mods to like lounge, exotica, tiki and other incredibly strange music that we embraced decades later. So who are the people Jerry really trained? Who are the graduates of Jerry Dammers' Bootcamp? DJ Ken from The Shingles joins me in highlighting a few of Dammers contemporaries and his musical progeny.

I've been pressed to impress myself of late. Got me a new suit, some new ties and have been upping the game with a bit more effort to step out with style. But, the music is still the same. So, here we go again with a great set of new music, along with a few older gems to round out the mix.

This week's modcast sort of came together by accident, as some of my best shows do. It didn't start out that way, but eventually as I was working on things the theme presented itself and I thought it would work pretty well. As you listen I'm sure it won't be hard for you to nail down what the theme is. No matter the theme it's a nice mix of funky, soulful, acid jazz goodness.

Hello garage rockers, are you ready to rock and roll? Special delivery to you on this modcast is some great old 80s garage rock. It's loud and brash, with lots of fuzzy guitars and pounding drums. The girls will all be in miniskirts and gogo boots, while the boys will have Prince Valiant hair and lotsa paisley shirts. This show is packed with great music, some of it a little obscure as I've chosen some deeper tracks that maybe don't get played as much. So packed that you won't even hear groups like Gravedigger V, Tell-Tale Hearts, Pandoras, Crawdaddy's, or the Fuzztones. But you do get is going to blow you away.

Finally! Welcome to the modcast kids, I've got a great show lined up for you. Out here in the Pacific Northwest we just survived Seattle's snowpacalypse. We got over a foot of snow here in West Seattle at Suave Mannor and spent the past week housebound. That doesn't usually happen out here. Rain yes, a little snow sometimes, but not like this. It was Seattle's biggest snowfall in almost 100 years, but being snowed in did give me time to work up this modcast. Some new stuff, some old stuff, all great stuff.

I can't remember who but a while back somebody messaged me and asked if I'd do a whole show of cool organ jazz, and well here it is. The first one at least. I've got a couple of other organ shows brewing in the back of my mind. But this one is all just cool jazz numbers really. Some by artists you're sure to recognize and some by a few that might be new to you. As always find a complete track list over on the modcast homepage at mistersuave.com
