Not just an event, Modstock is going to be an album too, with the New Untouchables’ Rob Bailey compiling a collection, which will be released via Detour Records.
It’s a limited edition release, described as ‘future mod club hits, records that are just as good as the established scene classics but in many cases have never been compiled before’. Most are from small and obscure labels, all have been restored and mastered, then sequenced ‘like a fast-moving D.J. set’. The CD also has five studio bonus tracks (including some exclusives) from bands who appeared live at Modstock, finished off with a colour CD booklet with images, artwork, artist info and track commentaries.
CD tracklisting is below. If you want to order the CD, it’s available directly from the New Untouchables as a pre-order (the release date is 24th April 2014) for £12.99 on CD or vinyl, with Amazon doing pre-orders for the download album for £7.49.
