In 2003, the album was ranked number 381 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей The Modern Lovers. One set of demos, produced by John Cale, were released as the band's "first album" (this one), in 1976. The artwork says the recordings are from 1971, but they were actually recorded in 1972. Another set of demos, produced by Kim Fowley, were released as the band's "second album", The Original Modern Lovers, in 1981.
Compiled of demos the band recorded with John Cale in 1973, The Modern Lovers is one of the great proto-punk albums of all time, capturing an angst-ridden adolescent geekiness which is married to a stripped-down, minimalistic rock & roll derived from the art punk of the Velvet Underground. While the sound is in debt to the primal three-chord pounding of early Velvet Underground, the attitude of Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers is a million miles away from Lou Reed's jaded urban nightmares.
The Modern Lovers were formed in 1970 by teenage singer, songwriter, guitarist Jonathan Richman, augmented with Jerry Harrison (keyboards), Ernie Brooks (bass) and David Robinson (drums), with Richman's friend and original band member John Felice joining them occasionally. 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
