MO-DETTES - White Mice 7'' 1979

The Mo-Dettes (alternatively The Modettes) were an all-female punk band, formed in 1979. This first self-released 7'' contains their most well-known song "White Mice" and was recorded in the mid 1979 on Mode Records, with "Masochistic Opposite" on the b-side. The single was distributed by Rough Trade and spent five weeks at No.1 in the indie charts. And although the assumption is that they were a mod band, this is incorrect: some called them punk, others thought they were more pop-punk, while still others compared their music to that of early Raincoats or Slits. Well, for me these two cuts are simply pop-punk songs and I can always listen to them. Whip your feet, shake your body and listen to White Mice while during the download. The all-girl band disbanded in 1982 after just one album.
