Every month I look forward to the latest Mojo magazine arriving, providing new music to hear and an eclectic collection of bands and musicians to read about and hopefully some new or old bands to search out. For some time now each Mojo has come with a CD attached hilighting a musical genre or central theme. My previous post Bird Blobs was also from a Mojo Post-Punk compilation.
In an effort to share this enjoyment, and to make track selection and research that much easier, I plan to post a song each month from the Mojo compilation CD, and this month it's the "Mojo Mod Club Party". I hope you enjoy this track - there are many more available with this months Mojo magazine.
Not to be confused with their US counterparts, Middlesex five-piece The Birds featured future Faces and Stones man Ronnie Wood on guitar and personified rough-edged British R&B. Signed to Decca, they released four singles but split in ’66. This version of Eddie Holland’s Motown classic left its mark on one of their young roadies, Lemmy, who would resurrect the tune with his band Motörhead.
