Various Artists - The Phase III Mod Bands (PHZ-13)

01. The Key - Nothing Gets Better
02. The Sons Of Jet - Marilyn Monroe
03. The Second Generation - Throw It All Away
04. The Switch - Please Don't Walk Away

1987 Unicorn Records | PHZ-13

Three cuts of miserable, introspective guitar pop which would probably have felt more at home on a C86 compilation, rather than a mod record. Only The Sons Of Jet's quirky Marilyn Monroe saves the day. Nothing Gets Better was probably how most mods were feeling at the time. Soul searching without the soul.
