Interval – Mod Party!
Brighton Mods
Don’t let the picture (showing the famous ‘64 Briton clash between Mods and Rockers) get you on the wrong track. This ain’t a selection of British Mod faves but my pick of highly danceable tunes from (mostly) the US, for sure to file under the Soul-tag. I’ve never understood what’s the difference between Blue Eyed Soul, Northern Soul and Deep Soul, for me it’s simply the sounds I’d love to hear at a party. Over the top-productions with hilarious singing, heavy on the brass, inviting you to Move and do the Jerk, the Shing-a-ling, the Boogaloo, and le Monkiss. I’ve collected all these tracks randomly since years now not so much focusing on the rareness but just on that cool Mod approach. Remember this little blog started with UC001 – The Mod Syde, and here’s more. You’re invited to the Mod Party! All dudes driving a Vespa (like me) or a Lambretta will get free drinks! Put your hands on your hip, shake your legs, put your right foot in the air, put your left foot behind your right foot, let your backbone slip, and, mostly, maintain your cool and have fun!!!!!

Vol. 1

Vol. 2

Vol. 3

Vol. 4

Hi Michael,

Your comps are awesome! Your variety is unequaled, and every one is a pleasure to listen to.

Volume 140 is a dead link now. When you get a chance, if you could re-up it I would appreciate it.

Thanks for everything!!

Re: Awesome!

Hi Ray, thanks for your kind words, and I'm happy you enjoy the series. The link for UC140 works fine (http://www.mediafire.com/?h4abiz2a6lx2j5w), I've just checked it, so please try again and let me know if you find other dead links

Mod Party

Just downloaded this and it has to be said....OUT LOUD!!!....some great music on here. As I'm a newbie to this wonderful place I've had a look back through the archive to see what I've been missing. Up to now I've got Nightclubsyde, The British Syde and Vol.1 of U.S. Garage Gems. I'm sure I'll be investigating further volumes from this series. Thanks again for all this great music....this is a website to be very proud of. Zipper.

Re: Mod Party

Hi Zipper, thanks for your kind words, they'll make me kind a blush.... I'm sure you'll find some amazing and uncomped tracks on here. Let me know in case you'd stumble over dead links, so I'll reup'em. Enjoy bro!
