The Moment were one of the most powerful Mod bands of the 80s taking 60s powerpop chords from The Who and early punky 'Jam' sounds to come with fantastic Mod anthems for the 80s.
Songs like 'In this Town' and 'With this ring' show this off to good effect, this compilation is a excellent tribute to a brillent band

In 'Mod Gods' they might have had one of the most arrogant album titles ever, but the thing about The Moment was that they could always back up their arrogance with the music. That's what made them very special. Razor sharp guitars and driving brass riffs made this collision of mod and soul almost irresistable! A complete career on one CD, this album puts the early mod anthems 'In This Town' and 'One, Two They Fly' alongside the later pop soul of 'Carpenter Of Life' and 'Poor Mr Diamond'. It also comes complete with their live rendition of 'Aspidistra' recorded on tour in Germany and the final single 'Pain', withdrawn on the week of release when the band split up - and not available until this collection. The superb packaging comes complete with a sleeve note by the NME's Paul Moody who proclaims The Moment as "British pop's biggest ever secret". I couldn't agree more!

I was absolutely delighted to see that an anthology of The Moment was being released - after all, I'd bought all their records on vinyl the first time round. The tracks I already had were brilliant, obviously, but I couldn't believe the quality of the unreleased tracks on this compilation. Usually a 'previously unreleased track' is some dodgy demo that didn't come out because it wasn't very good, but on 'Mod Gods' there are some gems: 'Pain' was recorded as a single and never came out because the band split and the live version of 'Aspidistra' is a must. I remember seeing them do this song live but the band never recorded 'Aspidistra' in the studio. This live version (apparently taken from the forthcoming 'Live In Germany' album) is superb - it's a George Orwell poem set to music and it's a must to hear!

Gut-wrenching, Rickenbacker-destroying, pop-art mod rock. Taking influences from The Jam, The Clash and Dexys, The Moment ended up with a totally unique sound that made them Britain's biggest and best mod band of the late '80s. Singer/somgwriter Adrian Holder was a frontman with presence and charisma - and on this collection the songs are delivered with all the passion of Weller at his best. Often the band's pop-rock tunes were driven by the distinctive trombone sounds of Steve Rinladi and 'Carpenter Of Life', included here, is indeed a song in praise of Dexy's trombonist Big Jim Patterson. With an informed sleeve note detailing the history of the band, together with many archive photographs and several unreleased recordings (including their last single, 'Pain'), 'Mod Gods' is an excellent package. I can't believe I didn't know it was out before and it brings back many memories of all those gigs at the 100 Club! If you saw them at the time, buy it. If you didn't you missed something special - but buy it anyway! KURT

I hadn't heard of this band before a friend a recomended them to me but I was completely blown away by this tremendous compilation. The excellence of the songwriting on tracks like 'Pain' and 'Aspidistra' really made me stop and think; and with great pop tunes like 'One Two They Fly', I can't understand why this band didn't have hits. Maybe this compilation will redress the balance. Anything else on the market by them?
