In 1983 three highschoolers in New Jersey heard "This is the Modern World" by The Jam and Mod Fun was born. Upon graduating high school in 1984, the band moved to California & was welcomed into the Mod Scene. Mod Fun released two singles, "I Am With You" and "Mary Goes Round" (New, 1984), an EP "Hanging Round" on Making Tyme! Records which was co-produced by Ron Rimsite of 99th Floor Fanzine fame, and two Albums, "Dorothy's Dream" and "90 Wardour Street" on Midnight Records. They toured the U.S. three times and after a European tour called it quits in 1987.
The CD collection "Past Forward" was released by GET HIP in 1995 and was reissued in 2004. It contains most of their recorded output including some UK-only tracks that first appeared on the Hi Lo Records LP "American Heart and Soul" and were remixed for their debut on cd. Also included on the 20-track collection is unreleased material produced by legendary rock scribe Jim DeRogatis and many vinyl-only tracks from Mod Fun's original three 7-inchers & two 12-inchers. You can buy it here.
