"They play in sharp suits and use a target and a scooter in their publicity – but don't pigeon-hole 60s Tribute band Modern Affair as just the latest mod revivalists.
The Derby-based band, the big hit of Derby Beer Festival for 2 years running, bring their hard-edged sound.
In the past year or so, this seasoned bunch of players have attracted rave reviews, creating a buzz wherever they go.
However, if you're expecting a quiet evening of 60s standards strummed along with gentle harmonies, you will probably be rather disappointed.
They are loud, full of energy and they push the edgier hits from the era to their limits, with crashing guitars, a thumping beat and a whirling dervish of an in-your-face delivery from front man Colin Anthony.
I guess what they are doing (since I was not around at the time) is taking this music back to its roots, before producers got near it.
This, you would like to think, is what it sounded like in the pubs and clubs when bands like the Yardbirds, the Small Faces and the Kinks were taking their first steps in a musical revolution. That's how they see it, too".
