Jonathan Richman And The Modern Lovers: Jonathan Richman And The Modern Lovers

Gene Sculatti, Crawdaddy!, October 1976

WHAT WE HAVE here, as every pop observer knows, is a four-piece band led by a highly eccentric singer-songwriter full of inspiration and highly visible influences who may either be (1) The Future of Rock 'N' Roll or (2) an off-key attraction of minimal interest. Stop: you're both wrong.

Total word count of piece: 736
