MODERN ART "Bonus Tracks​!​" (UK 1982​-​83 New Wave * Post Punk )

by Modern Art



Bonus tracks that are NOT included on debut tape: "Underwater kites" or second tape "Oriental towers" ..but great music from Modern Art , UK post punk / new wave band.. and some tracks that are included in the compilations "Cold Waves of Color Vol 1.-4)

Another entry from the darkly enchanting new wave / post punk of The Modern Art. As an introduction to the world of Coil and Current 93 collaborator (and Sun Dial main man) Gary Ramon and his orbiting bandmates, you can't do better.

"From a time when drummers were as rare as a tune with a melody. It could have been made yesterday, by one of those modern bands of foppish young men, whose parents' record collection contained stuff like The Wake and Modern English. A jolly jaunt through some early eighties indie, full of hand played synth lines, classic drum box sounds, poppy sequences, and introverted vocals."

Formed by Ramon in the early 1980's, Modern Art released two albums on vinyl, and a significant amount of impossible-to-find cassettes. On this "BONUS TRACKS!" you will find examples of what was going on in England during the pinnacle of the post-punk scene—an inspired time that encouraged young musicians to develop music influenced by the likes of Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and Clock DVA.
