Revival reviewer wanted

by Modculture 30 January, 2006

Keen observers of Modculture will probably have noted that I’m neither expert or all that enthusiastic about the sound of the mod revival. That’s not a slight on the bands – it just happens that I wasn’t there to enjoy it and have never really been taken by a lot of the music on offer. Like all things, each to their own.

With that in mind, and because I feel it’s important to cover all music that appeals to mods, I’m on the look out for a revival reviewer to cover the regular releases/reissues that come throguh the letterbox.

Ideally, the person must enjoy that area of music, be able to write a bit if they put their mind to it and be able to do a review within a week of receiving the music. Benefits are your name in lights and obviously free music!

Interested? Contact us to find out more or to register your interest.
