Re: Remember The Untouchables?


Hey All;
Once a mod, always a [sign in to see URL] band rehearsal last night(bandname possibilities::Mighty Squid or maybe The Gravity Men) and told the boys that I loved mod music from the very start, not even sure of the musical [sign in to see URL] Fame,Zombies,Ray Charles,Who,Moses Allison,The Animals,Jimmie Smith,[sign in to see URL] was intuitive...
So glad to read threads from you folks with extended [sign in to see URL] mentioned seeing us at Boston Arms: I believe we filmed clips for the video "I Spy" after our gig there. If so, I probably have you captured on [sign in to see URL] you have a copy?
Westcott asks about reissued material: Wild Child has been released on CD twice, most recently with 2 previously unreleased songs that never made the original LP along with newer and better [sign in to see URL] MysteryMod: I'd love a copy of City Gent also, if it's [sign in to see URL] appeared on several TV shows while on tour: Max Headroom, Tube, Top of the Pop,Mid-Summersnight's [sign in to see URL] any of these to be had? The "Free Yourself" video is what got us originally signed to [sign in to see URL] Robinson saw it on French TV and flew to LA and signed [sign in to see URL] was shot very cheaply, but regardless, very [sign in to see URL] still stands up nicely...
Hey Ilford Mod-mon: Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen were fans of the U.T.'[sign in to see URL]'s how we got into those particular [sign in to see URL] wrote and sang "What's Gone Wrong", which was featured in "No Man's Land"...I'd already left the band before they began shooting (Someday I'll explain why I quit on the boys)...anyway, the new keyboard player lip-synced my vocal for the [sign in to see URL] was kind of weird to [sign in to see URL] movies we did (if you can find them): "Party Animal" (great rendition of "The General"),"Under The Boardwalk" "Surf Nazis must Die" (whoa!)...anyway I'm thrilled to chat with you people about the days...

I think The Gravity Men sounds best. The Mighty Squid sounds a bit like a Woodstock hippy type thing...

You can't imagine the relief come Saturday nightime. Climbing to his feet, he ran out side, and said "you can't keep a good man down!"

Hi acetone, saw you guys play at Poole arts centre 1985, with some freaky goth band as support, think they left half way through there set, i remember Clyde " the city gent " Grimes climbing the speaker stack, still playing the guitar, getting to the top leaping jam stylee into the air, landing, spinning around and never missed a beat, also one of our club bieng propelled over the crash barrier to dance with the guys on stage to free yourself, brilliant gig, glad to hear you're still around, no chance of the original band getting back together for a reunion gig ????

The people round here, they are so nice,

My wife can't believe that people remember gigs the U.T.'s played all those years [sign in to see URL]'m loving it..."selective memory", I explain..."we forget to take out the trash, right after being told to, yet we remember who paid for drinks 20 years ago"...One thing the U.T.'s had, was a great stage [sign in to see URL], playing keyboards, I wasn't expected to perform death-defying stunts while playing my [sign in to see URL], I just hopped up and down to the [sign in to see URL] very [sign in to see URL] know, when you're on tour and getting a bit homesick, you start to wonder about [sign in to see URL] wish I could have understood the impact the U.T.'s [sign in to see URL] might have been more patient and understanding of the rigors of [sign in to see URL] concept, you propose, [sign in to see URL] the U.T.'[sign in to see URL] though, that the band has always had revolving [sign in to see URL] reunification would include quite a few musicians and we all tend to moooch a [sign in to see URL] was there for a very crucial era,from [sign in to see URL] from self- released single ("The General" to major label release "Wild Child")...there is a website for the band with attached link to [sign in to see URL] may want to suggest your idea there and see what [sign in to see URL], thanks M-Mod for the link to DJ Delboy, I'll check him [sign in to see URL] seen the TV/video shot in '85 at the Rockplast Festival in [sign in to see URL] think it can be had [sign in to see URL] complete set, well [sign in to see URL]#...Acetone...

Saw you guys at the 'International Club'(at least I think thats what it was called) in Manchester, a great night that! Can't remember what the date was but I remember some really nice modettes standing near me and my mates and meeting some cool mods that night.
Thanks for the memories.

Re: Remember The Untouchables?


Cheers for that ace, do you know your right ear is also present on the front of wild child ??? that'll get you diving for yer record collections.

Also i think that it wouldn't matter to what degree you guys got back together it would be the fact that you did ??? food for thought, i for one would go see it.

Didn't some of them form the guitar gangsters ??? so at least some of you are still performing, and you already have a fan base as of such to work from, what would a few calls cost, come on you know you want to.
