Portobello Explosion: Collected Artefacts of Illustrious Noise 1965-1970. Swinging Mod sounds that ruled the world. Portobello Explosion captures the definitive soundtrack to London’s 1960s music scene. A colorful explosion of mod pop euphoria and R&B cool echoed from rare and obscure singles. This collection defines an era of attitude and energy that has remained a heady influence over its teenage contemporaries.
