the VanCourtland Rangers
Mod Revival from Vancouver BC
Formed on the 25th Anniversary of Britain's Mod Revival, the Van Courtland Rangers are taking Pete Meaden's motto, "Clean living under difficult circumstances", to heart. After years of heartbreak and disillusionment in the underground, the members of the Rangers have taken it upon themselves to spread the gospel of hope. The sound is a glorious amalgam of early 60's pop and late '70's punk, with liberal doses of surf and Jamaican rock-steady. Their sordid tales of modern life are set against euphoric pop melodies and driving rhythms, a perfect balance of yesterday and tomorrow.
