The Mod Singers - Any info please ?

I firstly want to apologise if this has been covered before

This group (seemingly from Chicago) released a couple on Savern (I wonder if like Sagport, this was one by Zono Sago (real name Alan Williams)

They were backed by The Joneses (I don't know if they are connected to the Joneses we all know)

Info would be great please :)

Most songs released on Savern were credited to Nicolet music … as were lots of other top Chicago written numbers (including Major Lance's "Monkey Time")

I found this

which amazingly leads straight back to Lashawn Collins which I have been wondering about for ages and Numero Group had seemingly "No knowledge"

There is also some kind of connection with Nicolet Music and the Penny and

Nickel labels which were owned by Chicago dj Richard Pegue -

I don't want to end up with this thread going round in circles but these type faces are really interesting and there surely must be connections somehow
