The Moderns – Got To Have Pop

 I just stumbled across the retro sounds of the paradoxically named The Moderns on We All Want Someone To Shout For and had to share.  

This mod gem dates back to 1979 and comes courtesy of Sweden. These four lads combine twinges of the Clash with the cherub sweet harmonies of the Beatles for a jolly good rollicking time.

Listen to “Got To Have Pop” below and head over to Killed By Death Records to download their first 7”. 


  1. I am so loving this sound! I stumbled across your blog when looking for a picture of band The Smith Westerns, and really like it! It is so bizarre that they are called the Moderns and have this totally retro sound! Funny, bet they never considered that.

    Anyway, think you might like my site. Hope that you come scope it out if you have time.
