There’s no chance of The Jam reforming, so you’ll have to settle for the next best thing. Which is probably Bruce Foxton & From The Jam and the All Mod Cons 35th Anniversary Tour.
Seems like there’s a mini Corduroy revival going on right now. Which suits me just fine. Hot on the heels of the Very Yeah box set comes news of a one-off live show and a live album via Acid Jazz.
A recent broadsheet article (in The Guardian specifically) claims mod bands today aren’t very good. But do they actually exist? Or is it a case of mods finding bands that suit their musical tastes?
If you missed out on seeing Paul Weller and The Strypes on Record Store Day, read on for video of much of the show.
Regular readers of the site might recall I did a feature on The Action – In The Lap Of The Mods recently, a VHS-only documentary based around the band’s reunion in the late 1990s. Well, it’s coming out again on DVD.
After covering the US last year, The Who now announces a Quadrophenia European tour for 2013, with tickets going on sale for all shows this week.
If you missed it, Paul Weller’s Mastertapes session on Radio 4 is now on Listen Again.
