It's over forty years since The Jam inspired a new generation with their All Mod Cons album - released in the dying months of 1978. But the Mod revival was far more than just a one-band phenomenon inspired by the arrival of the film version of The Who's Quadrophenia. A succession of groups including The Purple Hearts, The Jolt, The Chords and Secret Affair amongst many others added to Weller's powerful songs with great tunes. It was a movement that had been growing organically for more than a year and was a fitting answer to the increasingly grim post-punk scene with hits such as: 'David Watts', 'The Modern World', 'Down in the Tube Station at Midnight', 'Eton Rifles', 'That's Entertainment', 'Going Underground'...
