80’s Hitmakers, Modern English, rock the Raue!
Modern English is an English rock band best remembered for their songs “I Melt with You,” “Hands Across the Sea,” and “Ink and Paper”. The group disbanded for a period in 1991 but later recorded in 1995 with some new members. The original members reformed in 2009 and are currently recording and touring.
Formed in Colchester, Essex, England, in 1979 by Robbie Grey (vocals), Gary McDowell (guitar, vocals), and Michael Conroy (bass, vocals), Modern English were originally known as The Lepers. The group expanded to “Modern English” when Richard Brown (drums) and Stephen Walker (keyboards) were subsequently added to the line-up of the band.
The original members reunited & reformed in 2009 and started to tour and work on new material. After reforming with original band members and extensive touring, Modern English released their first new album in 30 years, “Take Me To The Trees” was finally released in 2016. In 2020 The band had planned to tour and play their 40th Anniversary Tour Worldwide, but the global pandemic had different plans. Modern English played the whole After The Snow album virtually online in its entirety throughout 2020. 2021 looks exciting, as Modern English is in the studio working on brand new material.
