Can't Beat This!Oct. 11 2009

Outstanding disc by one of the best of the Mod Revival Bands! Solid musicianship, witty and well-delivered lyrics. This disc rocks - thirty years after its release it sounds as fresh, energetic and relevant now as it did in 1979. Can't stop listening to "Beat That!" by the Purple Hearts. If you are looking for a very good example of what "Mod Revival" sounds like, this is as good a place to start as any.
PS. This band re-united with all its original members to tour to wildly enthusiastic crowds in the UK over this Summer and Fall. Wish they'd come to the States!
