The Mo-Dettes "The Story So Far"

This was a great 1980's new-wave/chick band, really did like their stuff for a while, this is a killer album that
you will want to hear/have, with the classic "Masochistic Opposites" and "White Mice Disco", and more, this is a forgotten 1980's masterpiece that NEVER fails to put a smile on this face when it hits the turntable.....the Mo-Dettes, I THINK, released but this one album, they consisted of guitarist Kate Kouris, bassist Jane Crockford, singer Ramona Carilier, drummer June Miles-Kingston, and guitarist Melissa Ritter.....give this forgotten classic a listen, it is simply a great release, buried under the three decades (!) that have passed since I bought it!

THE STORY SO FAR-01 Fandango/02 Satisfy/03 Dark Park Creeping/04 Kray Twins/05 Paint It Black/06 White Mouse Disco/07 Bedtime Stories/08 Masochistic Opposites/09 Foolish Girl/10 Norman (He's No Rebel)/11 Sparrow/12 Milord

  3. Hi, dont know if the blog warns you if somebody post something in older posts, but I[m wrtiting anyway. I found mommy and daddy on you tube, but apart of that there is nowhere else I could find them, 4shared, torrent, really nowhere, and to find your blog was like water in the desert. BUt, as I thought, the links to their albums are not on the air anymore, because they were mediafire. I dont know if you noticed that. You must have the material still. Could you post Mommy and Daddy stuff again. please? Marcio here

    1. Mauricio-please review my policy regarding the reup of dead links, it can be found easily elsewhere on the blog, thanks
