Welcome to the darkly enchanting minimal synth-pop and psych-tinged world of THE MODERN ART. As an introduction to the world of Coil and Current 93 collaborator GARY RAMON and his orbiting bandmates, you can't do better. Formed by Ramon in the early 1980s, Modern Art released two albums on vinyl, and a significant amount of impossible-to-find cassettes. Some of this material was compiled in a highly regarded 3-LP (sold out) box set, made in 2013 by Vinyl on Demand. This remastered reissue of Underwater Kites, their very first cassette album, originally released in 1982, also includes three previously unissued tracks from that session. On this album you will find examples of what was going on in England during the pinnacle of the post-punk scene—an inspired time that encouraged young musicians to develop music influenced by the likes of Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and Clock DVA.
