Really enjoying these charts, great to see the likes of Small Hours\Squire\Merton Parkas\Chords and all the Mod revival bands from the 1979-81 era here in your charts.

Secret Affair are still gigging with Ian Page and Dave Cairns in the ranks, Squire still play random gigs, the Chords as Chords UK with Chris Pope, Buddy from the Chords is now in The Fallen Leaves and gigs quite a lot with them, and also at time with The Moment. The Lambrettas, Long Tall Shorty, Small World can be seen live at times around the country, The Killermetres also, The Purple Hearts get back together every few years and put on some great shows. The Parkas have never succumbed and got together, same as Small Hours. I see quite a few of them quite regular around Kings Cross\Islington and the like, when they are not playing live, and get to have a quick chat with some of them.

Luckily have been able to see all the above over the years, but not however in their prime, you can't have it all. Your listings have also thrown a few newer names to me, which I have been able to listen and enjoy.

I was checking last night and just thought I had to comment. In your current breakers is one Johnny Britton no less, he actually lives on the same block as me, and still performs a few gigs, usually for local residents events, or we all have a quiet beer in one of the locals. Funny when I saw his name appear, I knew of course of his early musical career.

Cheers.

Thanks for your interest. I saw most of those bands around 1979-80 but by this time - November 1980 - it had faded away really. I noticed that the Vapours played in London last Friday, supported by Chords UK, which amused me as I saw the Vapours support the Chords at the Marquee once. Interesting about Johnny Britton, I'd forgotten that song all together until I dug these charts out. If my wife was there in the mod revival days she'd probably recognise people from the old bands, as she does occasionally form the mid-80s bands like 14 Iced Bears.

There might not be much mod left in the forthcoming charts but there's plenty of indie/guitar/pop still to come among all the synth bands.

Unusual that I included 7 of the BBC's Top 10 (plus Blondie had already dropped out of mine). The exceptions were Abba and the St Winifred's School Choir.
