... hot blast of punk powerpop influenced tracks on this new CD.

·  THE Q " Issues "' is the long awaited debut from this UK Mods from outta Gloucestershire.. This limited 10' vinyl EP features 4 songs that have a pure 79 mod revival sound inspired by bands like 'The Jam' and 'Secret Affair'. Produced by Vic Coppersmith-Heaven ( legendary former producer of 'The Jam', the 'Turning Japanese' single by 'The Vapors', etc ). And these guys provide much more than catchy Power Pop and Mod tunes. The Q leads by example in the song writing stakes, capturing that working class edge and displaying a keen social conscience, reminiscent of early Townsend or Weller.
