RAF: Come On!: 10”

The cover of Come On! has Mod targets where the Os are supposed to be. There is no question what this band is going for. They have a song called “(It’s a) Modern World” and a song called “We Are the Mods.” The band logo is filled with British flag stripes. They are trying awfully hard to be extras in Quadropheniafor a band from Portland. The good news is they are good at what they do. The band crams fast-paced, jangly Rickenbacker-inspired riffs into two-minute, Jam-style songs. The record contains six upbeat tunes in the framework of skinny ties and tight trousers. The title track is a standout. See them in the winter so you can wear your parka.
