I can confirm the bug on 16.04, but it's only nautilus/GTK reporting the file type is "Amiga SoundTracker audio (audio/x-mod)".

In a shell it is correctly identified as text:

  $ file Untitled\ Document\ 1
  Untitled Document 1: ASCII text

Furthermore, the bug does not seem to exist any more in Ubuntu 18.10.
