Pues me he topado con este disco en directo de una de mis bandas australianas favoritas. El LP que publicaron a finales de los 70 es brutal. Con auténticos trallazos. Lo que no sabía es que esta gente seguía tocando. Toda una grata sorpresa.
Aquí está su portada, clavada al Live At Leeds de THE WHO

“The first power pop band from Down Under.” - Bomp! magazine, Jan 1979
Includes ‘She’s Got the Money’, ‘Countdown’, ‘Sportsgirls’, ‘Girl of Mine’, covers of ‘The Singer Not The Song’ (Rolling Stones), ‘On Top Of The World’ (Bluesbreakers) and more, including definitive version of 'Don't Go To Sydney' from Young Modern singer John Dowler's subsequent band The Zimmermen.
Young Modern played their first gig in Adelaide supporting Radio Birdman in 1977, and quickly became the hottest band in town. They moved to Sydney the following year, where they were briefly a 'next big thing', playing with the likes of Cold Chisel, the Angels and the Hitmen before splitting in '79.
Their classic 7" 'She's Got The Money'/'Automatic' remains a much-loved artifact of the early days of Australian independent releases, and their posthumous album 'Play Faster' was indeed one of the first local albums of the indie era. They were featured prominently in Clinton Walker's iconic book 'Inner City Sound', and have been acknowledged as an influence on subsequent generations of bands including the Sunnyboys, the Huxton Creepers and the Ice Cream Hands.
Young Modern singer John Dowler's subsequent band the Zimmerman had a smash indie hit in the mid-80s with 'Don't Go To Sydney' - a definitive new version of which is included here.
This stunning 18 song live album, recorded in Adelaide late last year, finds the band sounding EXACTLY like it's 1978 again. With definitive versions of all their classic tunes, this is masterful power pop that will appeal to fans of Big Star, the Flamin' Groovies, Badfinger and the Nerves.
Overseas press is also on board - legendary UK scribe Kris Needs has just reviewed the album for influential zine 'Shindig', saying:"The group reformed a few years back for gigs and an album, here captured live last year but sounding like it could have been recorded back in their day, such is the energy and passion with which they pile through jingle-jangled originals such as ‘Bracelets’, ‘Girl Of Mine’ and ‘Automatic, plus covers of the Stones’ ‘The Singer Not The Song’ and John Mayall’s ‘On Top Of The World’. Of course, they most recall the Flamin’ Groovies, which can never be a bad thing."
