The Modern Lovers: The Modern Lovers LP (Rhino)

Byron Coley, Forced Exposure, 1987

THIS RE-ISH of the basic, essential, first Mod Lovers LP also includes 'Government Center' (from the Chartbusters comp), the Warners version of 'I'm Straight' and an ace new-to-this-ear this called 'Dignified and Old'. Its cumulative effect is like finding a quivering ninety-pound adenoid that knows all about the Velvet Underground and y'oughta own it. Sidenote — the original liner notations by Phil Milstein (a guy generally conceded to b the most "sensitive" FE contributor) we shelved in favor of sub-decent ones by some non-FE contrib. Fuck a duck!

Total word count of piece: 88
