Led by Lou Reed-fanboy supreme Jonathan Richman, The Modern Lovers were and still are renowned for their upbeat summer rock sounds. Live sees the band play perhaps their sweetest songs, with generally unworried and happy songs. Great summer sounds to lend your night that stylish vintage edge.

8/10 Jack 1st June 2016

If you've ever seen Jonathan perform live you know what to expect. This is from their UK tour around 1977 when all the punks would have been into him for the original version of Roadrunner. But if they expected Pabo Picasso or I'm Straight or any of that stuff, the got a BIG surprise: the vibe is kinder-surfin' music with brilliantly simple melodies and playing. All of the songs can be appreciated by all ages. Although the instrumental songs aren't my favourite, the other seven songs are amazing. "Ice Cream Man" is such a classic that is guaranteed to put you in a good mood.
