Modern English After The Snow on Numbered Limited Edition 200g Vinyl LP

Also Available on Numbered Limited Edition Colored Vinyl

In 1982 British new wave act Modern English returned with their second album, After The Snow, which was produced by Hugh Jones (whose recent work on Echo & The Bunnymen's Heaven Up Here had been much admired). Jones played an important role in shaping the songs and exposing the band's latent abilities as pop craftsmen.

Two singles were extracted from the album: "Life In The Gladhouse" and the classic, "I Melt With You." Although the group's UK profile remained low, Sire Records licensed the record for the United States, where "I Melt With You" enjoyed massive success in clubs and on modern rock radio, and was featured in the movie Valley Girl. Vocalist Robbie Grey said of the album, "We used to think 'God, we'll never make a pop record. We're artists!, but things don't always turn out as you planned and when you actually create a pop record, it's so much more of a thrill than anything else."
