Modernism 2

Mod revivalists Secret Affair's 1979 debut single, Time For Action. 'This is the time for action, this the time to be seen' sang Ian Page, and thousands of Jam fans agreed sending it to number 13 in the charts and the cover of Smash Hits. Is it any good? I dunno. It's fun but clearly indebted to others. Secret Affair reformed a few years ago and gigged last year sharing a double header with fellow mod revivalists Purple Hearts playing Brighton and Islington. Somewhat obviously.
