SAME BAT-TIME, SAME BAT-CHANNEL . . .
MOD FUN is back at The Asbury Lanes (maybe the best venue ever?!) on Friday May 22, with the groovy Lost Patrol & CJ Grogan (who feature 1/2 of the late-great Phantom V -- longtime MF fans may recall Mick produced P5, & it was released on MOD FUN's "Making Tyme" record label in the 80's;) this is bound to be a fun-filled, fantastic, and long overdue "reunion" of sorts... also MF just got the following rave review in the local-scene giveaway "The Rag" > "I haven't  had as much fun listening to an album since I first opened up my copy of "Can't Stand The Rezillos"... This is high energy psychedelic/garage music for the roots oriented... their sound possesses a retro yet contemporary feel... elements of the british invasion (KINKS) as well as punk (BUZZCOCKS)... if you can sit still to their music, you must be dead!" Read the whole  review here (click on pg. 11 below cover.)


04.2009 BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE!
THE HOBOKEN MUSIC AWARDS have nominated MOD FUN in their "surrounding area Pop-Rock/Alt" category email: hobokenmusicawards@gmail.com to vote (enter "MOD FUN" in the subject line.)

MOD FUN has been playing some of the new songs live: "Give" - "Hold On" - "East Side Down" -  "Tell Me Why" and "Patrick Bishop" (which is actually a ressurected track MF never recorded in the 80s...


01.2009 '09 TIME FOR (A SPRING INTO) ACTION
MOD FUN hit the stage again (finally!) in February, with a batch of new material!  Check out the flyers at the left for all the details (click for links.) 2 Maryland shows on 2 saturdays over 2 months seemed to us like a nice way to break back into the saddle, don't you think?  Both shows are with the Names, (from MD) and both are at great venues, to boot - don't miss these! ...cheers!

NEWS ARCHIVE:

1.2005  Happy New Year !...
We are finishing up on that 8-track recording with the Manual Scan and Squire covers all done (came out great, if we do say so ourselves! hehe!)... also the "Modsbury Park" pix will all be up soon, check out this one in the meantime from Rob (Anderson Council) -- Also we found the following "review" from Jim Testa's (Jersey Beat) blog -- check it:

>> "My old buddy Jim DeRogatis and his wife Carmel came into town for the weekend....then on Saturday, we all went down to Asbury Park for the Mod Fun reunion.

For the uninitiated, Mod Fun were an Eighties band that, as the name implies, played mod British-influenced pop music, released a few albums and singles, and broke up rather acrimoniously in the middle of a European tour. That was 17 years ago. More recently, the trio - Mick "London" Hale on guitar and lead vocals, Bob Strete on bass, and Chris Collins on drums -had rekindled their friendship and started jamming together on some of the old songs. One thing led to another and on Saturday night, the band played together again, remarkably tight and relaxed for a band that hadn't been on stage for nearly two decades!... And then, complete with smoke machine, stage lighting, and enough paisley to poke Emma Peel's eye out, Mod Fun were back. Who knows, maybe this will lead to more gigs. The old songs certainly sounded great, and everybody - audience and band - seemed to have a great time. And besides, I'll be too old in another 17 years to see them to play again." <<


12.2004  Mod Fun Recording...
Mod Fun are currently recording some of the recent live set along with a few covers for upcoming "tribute" cds - the 1st is "I Know A Girl," by the 80's Mod band Squire, which is due out early '05 on Twist Records.  Next up is a cover for another 80's Mod icon: Manual Scan - who's Bart personally suggested "Nothing Can Be Everything," which seemed appropriate, as the M.S. best-of liner notes credit the phrase to Mod Fun's own Mick, from as it puts it "a drunken sojourn into Tijuana, Mexico!"  Hehe - we'll have some tequila for that one Bart!  Another title is by the Beatles "She Said" for a Revolver-only tribute.  We will try to post MP3 samples ov this stuff in a few weeks when done.  In the meantime check us out (w/ 3 free MP3 tracks) at Mod Fun's "my space." and if you have a page there - add us!
