THE MODS - Reactions LP

Among cognoscenti of the era, this Toronto unit are known for one of the great lost singles of early Canadian punk. As great as 1978's 'Step Out Tonight' 45 was, however, there was much more where that came from. Filtering the clear inspiration of mid '60s Who and Kinks through the aggressive delivery of such contemporaries as The Jam and The Clash, The Mods honed their attack into an unstoppable rush, hard-edged but melodic, and began working on a planned major label LP that never did materialise. This new Ugly Pop LP includes the single and highlights of the aborted album session; hyperbole aside, it's an astonishingly good record, and one of the best we'll ever release. New liners and rare pictures inside. (Ugly Pop UP065)

MODERN MINDS - Go LP

This Edmonton outfit formed in January 1979, playing a raw but melodic punk influenced by Buzzcocks and Undertones. Quickly developing a reputation as one of the city's finest underground live groups, they went into the studio to record four tracks, three of which would appear on an excellent 7" EP, 'Theresa's World', in 1980. As was so often the case with tremendous groups of the era, The Modern Minds soon went their separate ways, frontman Moe Berg going on to real commercial success with his next group, The Pursuit Of Happiness. This new Ugly Pop LP collects the original EP and eight more unreleased studio cuts, along with a deluxe gatefold insert featuring photos and new liner notes. Go! (Ugly Pop UP065)
