Mods

I'm not in the mood to write much these days, anyway here's a couple of bands that do not need many introductions. Coming from different eras, these are the two most popular mod bands ever.
The Who's clip is particulary interesting, not only because it shows shots of the musicians at a very young age, but also of many young kids from the first mod wave in England. You'll be brought back in the mid-sixties with the sound of Who's first explosive single!
By the time of the hit-single Town Called Malice, included in the 1982 album The Gift, the Jam were leaving punk rock to approach, still with a lot of energy, the Motown's soul music that Paul Weller always loved so much. The song is certainly one of the most beautiful raids in that style, that they did in the late period of their career.

Who - I Can't Explain (1965)
Jam - Town Called Malice (1982)

Se ti riferisci al Caimano, io non riesco a gioire più di tanto...ma non è la sede per approfondire la questione...

Grazie sempre per l'assiduità, apresto!

Certo che mentre giravano il video di I CAN'T EXPLAIN, sia gli Who che i ragazzi che se la ballavano dovevano aver ingerito un bel po' d'anfetamine... video utile per contraddire i matusa ipocritamente moralisti, la cultura dello sballo non è nata ai giorni nostri. :-)))
