Modern English's tour de force 1981 debut, Mesh & Lace, walked the path of dreamy, atmospheric aggression, paired with influences of postpunk bands such as Joy Division and Bauhaus. Dark and ambient, Modern English were highly experimental early on, giving way to lighter, melodic pop for the remainder of their career.
According to bassist Mick Conroy, "It took us 2 weeks to make Mesh & Lace. We didn't really know what we were doing, but knew what we wanted it to sound like. Noisy and pounding, and atmospheric at the same time. I guess these days it's called 'post punk'. When we play these songs live today, I am reminded of the energy and chaos that we put down on tape back in early 1981."
This is the first time the vinyl for Mesh & Lace has been available in the U.S.
