That’s a long title, but it tells you much of what you need to know. The How Is The Air Up There? 80’s Mod, Soul, Freakbeat Nuggets From Down Under box set is heading your way soon.
Great to see Trojan producing some interesting collections once more, with the latest being Copasetic! The Sound of Mod Ska.
In the first of a new series, we invited top tunesmith Paul Orwell to fill his imaginary Modernist Jukebox with 20 defining tracks. Check them out plus a Spotify playlist of the majority of the tunes selected.
Good news if you love the early work of The Jam. The 1977 box set from Universal pretty much has everything recorded from that year.
The latest in this (fairly) long-running series from Outta Sight is The Flamingo Club – London’s Original All-Nighter. It’s available to pre-order now.
Well, the first two went down well, so we suspect the remaining Style Council vinyl reissues will prove popular too. All are now on pre-order as well.
Another potential winner from a label specialising in them – Marylebone Beat Girls 1964-1967.
This is a huge release for Kent and Ace. We’re talking the vinyl release of Modernists: Modernism’s Sharpest Cuts.
