A way of life for every g-g-g-generation
Featuring some of Australia’s best, brightest and hungriest young musos., each with a sense of style and a love for music that makes you move.
Stark Raving MOD is the story of a sub-culture that changed the world, yet somehow remains subversively below the radar. It’s about a lifestyle based on style and the music first adopted and made popular around the world in the early 1960s.
It’s about the re-emergence of this sub-culture in the late 1970s and again in the mid-‘90s and the fact that it remains, bubbling just below the surface of society, ready to burst forth again when least expected.
This is two hours of brilliant MOD Music – classics you just don’t hear played live any more originally made famous by bands like the Small Faces, The Yardbirds, The Who, The Zombies and The Kinks… then later by The Jam, Oasis and more. These are songs that will make you want to dance all day and all of the night, whether or not you were part of the original In Crowd.
This is not a tribute band. This is the telling of an extraordinary story supported by timeless imagery and interwoven with more than 20 hit songs that shaped more than one era. It’s a tale of times when dressing for show was a religion, not a fashion statement… when kids were anti-establishment, anti-rules, anti-growing old… when the kids were alright!
