Rewind (Modern English)

"Our first album Mesh & Lace was received well as it climbed the Indie charts. We then shared a tour with our Essex rivals Depeche Mode as support to Wasted Youth, quickly followed by a short tour with Japan, both bands gave us loads of encouragement and our confidence was high. We did our first gigs around Europe, with good reactions in France, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Italy coming back to our first headlining dates in the U.K. Then our first gigs in the States." Para quem não os conhece, apesar de não serem uma banda incrível, os Modern English merecem menção, especialmente por este álbum inicial. É talvez o registo mais interessante da carreira dos ingleses. O tema que escolhi resume fielmente a atmosfera pós-punk intensa e algo obscura que os Modern English também conseguiram quebrar com singles como "I Melt With You". Time Machine.
