Some call Modern English one-hit wonders that will forever be linked to the 1980s. Most, if not all, of those people have not heard Mesh and Lace, one of my favorite records that pre-dates "I Melt With You" by a few years and is as angular and stark as anything Wire or Joy Division ever recorded. Since reuniting most of the original members, it's this album that makes up most of their live set these days. We (SMA) could not be more proud to open for this legendary band who have seen both sides of the indie/commercial landscape and were one of my earliest influences. I hope you come.
