Love this album. Like early 80s 4AD moody, dark bubbling synths, chorus-y jangling guitars and good vocals. Has a DIY sort of feel in the recording quality but the music speaks for itself. Wish this could be re-released remastered on CD!

As of now, Amazon.com has removed this for purchase.

I had been living in Plymouth for 3 weeks when I was given free-reign to spend £10 at the local Virgin Megastore in Armada Way. It was 1981 and I had a tenner burning a hole in my pocket and standing in, what seemed to me at the time, the largest record shop in the world. Having lived near Devizes in Wiltshire for the previous 3 years, Plymouth was already a huge city to me and wandering into the erstwhile Branson empire was a treat in itself. But I wasn't prepared for the choice and the range of lovely little 7" slices of plastic discs nestling on wire racks, clinging haphazardly to the walls behind the counter. I remember spotting "Procession" by New Order, "Burning Car" by John Foxx and "Euthenics" by Modern Eon. So I bought all 3 (and another pair of repressed Devo singles) and hurried home on the 42 bus to Manadon to my parents house to give them a spin. 30 minutes later, 10 songs later, 5 singles later - big smiles and the knowledge that i had found my nirvana. A scruffy big shop full of records with staff that smoked on the counter and a security guard who could make Hitler look like a childminder. Modern Eon were a band I knew little about. They came from Liverpool and were signed to the Virgin offshoot Dindisc, home to OMD, Martha & The Muffins, Nash The Slash and Monochrome Set. They released one album and 5 singles and appeared on a few European collections including "Double Art". So why the attention? In short, it was down to mystery. They were rarely interviewed and didn't publish their pictures on their record sleeves. They also didn't get radio play too often although I did hear their singles occasionally spun on John Peel's show on Radio One. But they were a mystery. Maybe it was the vocals, all whispered and hoarsely delivered with atmospheric surroundings and no hint as to what was to come. Their determining single was the follow-up. "Child's Play" is a rare example of 4 minutes of intense and, frankly, gloomy rock laced with a dervish of sax, guitars and pounding drums, coupled with those smoky vocals. After hearing it on Kid Jensen's show, I rushed out to buy it during my school lunch hour. It sounded even better shouting from my withering speakers and causing irritation from the older members of the household! My mates at school were also impressed and considering they were mainly impressed by New Romantics and Punk, they recognized a link with Modern Eon. Their album passed me by because Virgin didn't seem to stock it. But I picked it up in a market in Plymouth for 4 quid. Bargain. Early single, "Second Still" was included as was "Choreography", an anthem for all music fans who liked no-nonsense miserablism with a deep, nervy twitch. Although Smash Hits rated it an 8 out of 10, it died the death commercially. One more single was released on Dindisc. "Mechanic" was a shorter, cleaner mix compared to the album version. But I think the label missed a trick. A re-issue and re-work of "Choreography" might have drawn attention to the band. Instead, their label persevered with the more upbeat song, "Mechanic". Nobody cared and the single sunk. Along with the band. "Fiction Tales" is well over-due for a CD re-issue and also a deserved one. Forming part of the thriving Liverpool New Wave scene in the early 1980's, ME were overlooked for Echo & The Bunnymen and Teardrop Explodes which is a shame. If you are fortunate enough to pick up a vinyl version of this rather beautifully crafted album then you will be out of pocket by £20 such is its demand and its legend. But it would have been worth it. Get a decent record player and try it out. "Close your eyes - it's child's play"
