When: Sun., Nov. 5, 7 p.m. 2017
It might be easy to label British post-punk outfit Modern English a “one-hit wonder” thanks to their infectious saccharine pop hit “I Melt With You.” But what you might not know is that before the melt came the fire — as Modern English courted a brooding, volcanic sound on their debut record Mesh & Lace before crafting one of the most resilient hits of the ’80s. In fact, the last time Robbie Grey and gang stopped by Detroit they performed Mesh in its entirety (playing, of course, “that song”). This time around expect to hear tracks from their latest sonic musings Take Me to the Trees and all of the melty, gooey, gritty territory in between.
