Andy Smith – Jam Up Twist album

Note that I independently write and research everything in this article. But it may contain affiliate links.


Not strictly mod, but certainly of mod interest is the new Andy Smith album on BGP, going by the name of Jam Up Twist.

As you can see by the cover, it's a mix of 50s blues, northern soul, ska and rockabilly grooves, based around Smith's monthly night that takes place in London, Dublin and Bristol. The CD is 'mixed', but if you opt for the limited edition vinyl, you get the tunes in their original unmixed form.

See the tracklisting over the page. The album is out today, £10.68 gets you a CD on Amazon, with a price of £15.08 for the limited edition vinyl.

    Fantastic album, mine was presented to me as a prize in a comp on Wayne Hemingways Vintage facebook page, but I would have still bought this its been in the car, on the decks at a recent MOD Night Launch party and in my ears at the gym via IPOD. Just the kind of stuff I play listen to and enjoy. Thanks Andy 😀
