The Modern Lovers :: Reissued (U.S.)

Any discussion regarding albums and artists who were ahead of the game in terms of influencing upcoming musical movements must include The Modern Lovers debut LP. This is the precursor to punk -- absolutely essential listening.

Recorded in 1972, and released in 1976, the album was wayyy ahead of it’s time, influencing punk, post-punk and new wave. Hell, it even sounds remarkably fresh today.

Without a doubt The Modern Lovers are the missing piece between the Lou Reed helmed Velvet Underground and The Ramones.
