  • Modern English - I Melt With You - Live in San Francisco

    7:07

    Modern English - I Melt With You - San Francisco, Live, Sun. 7-15-12, Front row, Café Du Nord. At ~4:00, Robbie Grey holds the mic right over my head, then later right in front of my mouth, prompting me to sing a few lines, lol. I guess that's what happens when you stand front row center :P


    Other Tidbits:

    All the original band members are back! They're doing a short 8-stop tour while finishing up their new album.

    Robbie Grey's comment ..and Burger King to this was in reference to 'I Melt With You' being used in a BK ad back in the 90's. That decision actually resulted in a resurgence of popularity of the song which originally came out in 1982. I actually remember that commercial.. :P

    Midway through the show, a pair of fans kept on shouting out for the Café Du Nord's sound board operator to raise the bass' vocals. They even shouted their request after a song which bassist Michael Conroy didn't have a singing part.. The two were standing to the right of the stage, so perhaps their difficultly in hearing the vocals had more to do with the orientation of the venue's speakers. One time, after hearing the fans shout bass vocals several times, Robbie Grey pointed to the the sound board operator and jokingly said I think you better go back and tell him! :P

    Guitarist Gary McDowell positioned a flipbook on a music stand which had all the chords written on it. For example, GATHERING DUST. Intro. Soft. D. Chord with Vollum Pedal.

  • MODERN ENGLISH ~ Just A Thought

    4:09

    The band's early work is considered to be dark and moody, but often overlooked due to their massive success with 'I Melt With You'. People need to dig a little deeper, they really do. Taken from the debut album, 'MESH & LACE' (1981). LISTEN LOUD!

    Robbie Grey - vocals. Gary McDowell - guitar & vocals. Mick Conroy - bass & vocals. Richard Brown - drums. Stephen Walker - keyboards.

    Reckless I feel, reckless I feel
    It's something ideal, it's something ideal

    Space between the thoughts and acts
    A mind to see us and pave the way
    Who knowingly mowed us
    Who seemingly owed us

    Reckless ? cast aside
    From the wreckage to the tide
    Feel the touch of excitement while
    Adrenaline high
    Orgasm flow
    They were too young
    They were too young

    Use your knowledge
    Use your knowledge
    Feel the words
    Feel the words

    A time to act now
    A time to ?
    Now relax boys
    Now relax

    Just a thought, just a thought
    Just a thought, just a thought
    Just a thought, just a thought
    Just a thought, just a thought
    Just a thought, just a thought
    For you to face
    Just a thought, just a thought
    For you to face
    Just a thought, just a thought
    For you to face
    Just a thought

    Reckless ? cast aside
    From the wreckage to the tide
    Feel the touch of excitement while
    Adrenaline high
    Orgasm flow
    They were too young
    They were too young
    They were too young
    They were too young

    *FOR YOUR LISTENING ENJOYMENT ONLY*

    What is the openVAULT you ask? It's quite simple. Music that for lack of a better analogy, has been locked away from the general public. What has happened to the musical landscape is sickening. Far too many artists go largely unnoticed. We are here to change that. To drive the point home, this will not be some best of list aka Rolling Stone. No Stairway, no Walrus, just music that should be heard. Here at openVAULT you're going to be forced off the beaten path more often than not.

    It'll be good for you, trust us.

    Every song you will hear is from our private collection, so please NO copying, downloading or reproducing these videos in any form for this is strictly prohibited. You know as in illegal, a no-no. As stated before these tunes are FOR YOUR LISTENING ENJOYMENT ONLY! We won't sell, trade, or give up any mp3s, so if you're here for that purpose please step aside, you're blocking the view of others.

    Yes, Virginia, there *is* another song by Modern English besides I Melt With You. This was actually my favorite song off the album when I was a teen. It was always so cinematic, and even back then I wondered what a video for the song would look like.

    Life in the gladhouse is never dull
    Humdrum days still flying out the window
    It's wrought (wild) with overgrown people

    Broken engagements and twisted faith
    Growing up and then just growing older
    Oh me, oh my

    An easter parade for the innocent
    A fugitive's ? to pray for awhile
    Oh me, oh my
    Oh me, oh my

    My shadow weaves me ?
    But sometimes leaves love ?

    Oh me, oh my
    Oh me, oh my
    ?
    ?
    Oh me, oh my
    Oh me, oh my

    So let's all dance in time
    So let's all dance in time
    (life in the gladhouse is never dull)
    So let's all dance in time
    (life in the gladhouse is never dull)
    So let's all dance in time
    (life in the gladhouse is never dull)
    So let's all dance in time
    (life in the gladhouse is never dull)

  • modern english rainbows end from ricochet days.wmv

    3:12

    One of my favorite Modern English songs from the album ricochet days. First heard on 102 DWXB.

    Are you sleeping with the stars tonight
    or are you blue with cold
    leaving imprints on your forehead the
    floor is cracked and old
    nice and easy
    see the city
    the boys are clothed in threads of
    gold rainbow's end for ????

    Rooms to let in Rainbow's End There's always some
    Rooms to let in Rainbow's End
    [ Find more Lyrics on ]
    There's always more than one

    Wake up to another high day (it's a high day)
    Open front or quick in the back
    Just like seeing your hips way
    It's over don't look back

    Rooms to let in Rainbow's End There's always some
    Rooms to let in Rainbow's End There's
    always more than one (x2)

    Repeat 1st Verse

    Repeat Chorus to fade

  • Modern English - Grief – Live in Oakland

    6:34

    Modern English - Grief – Oakland, Live, Sat. 5-14-16, Front row, Oakland Metro Operahouse. Playing the whole of 1981's Mesh & Lace for the first time!


    Other Tidbits:

    Performing all of the early singles and edgier/wilder songs from the start of the post-punk '80s.

    And all the original band members are back! Robbie Grey, Mick Conroy (bassist), Gary McDowell (guitarist), Stephen Walker (keyboards) and Roy Martin (drummer).

    The band is also in the middle of recording a new album that was crowd-funded by PledgeMusic. Robbie said that some of the new tracks are more aggressive, like the earlier 4AD material, but it also has some orchestration on it, so it's a mixture of multiple things.

    The night also included other post-punk bands, which set the stage very well. Fans even dressed up in 80s punk attire (mohawks, leather jackets, ripped clothing, etc.) to celebrate the fun occasion (which didn't end until ~1am!).


    Setlist:

    1. Dance of Devotion (A Love Song)
    2. Just a Thought
    3. Swans on Glass
    4. Black Houses
    5. The Token Man
    6. Grief
    7. A Viable Commercial
