The Rimini Mod Scene Part 4 – Andrea Mattioni …. Music Memories From 1980s Mod Events

In his previous article Andrea Mattioni gave us a lovely insight into his memories of his participation in the 80s Rimini Mod Scene. Andrea’s second series of chats, recollects his music memories of back then. Andrea has chosen a selection of ten tracks that fondly remind him of the 1980s. An impeccable compilation of tracks including Mod classics, 60s Soul as well as some unforgettable Latin Jazz. Many of these tracks continue to stand the test of time 30 + years on, in 2020. They continue to be played at Mod events still today. Therefore if you have stumbled upon this page by chance or have been part of the Mod Scene in the 1980s, by all means enjoy. Your ears are about to be in for a treat 🙂

4. From your memories Andrea, could you please list a few tracks that are reminiscent of your participation in the 1980s Rimini Mod Scene?
