Generating Steam Heat radio show 30.05.17 (Mod Revival Special)

With a few notable exceptions, the mod scene of the late 70’s/early 80s was much maligned in the music press but in our opinion produced some of the most memorable music of the era which more than holds its own against the best punk, post punk and two tone releases that got and still get much more attention. 
The mod revival scene was made by the kids, for the kids and this week on Generating Steam Heat-we are the mods!
