Album Notes
The Modern Ruins met in the Spring of 2012 while helping play/record a song with the band Sixty Acres for a tribute album for Scruffy The Cat frontman and alt country icon, Charlie Chesterman.

Andy Bopp was the frontman and songwriter for the band Lovenut, a Baltimore staple signed to Interscope in the 90's. After touring the world, he went solo and started recording as the band Myracle Brah. The group's first album, Life On Planet Eartsnop, released in 1998, was critically acclaimed by Mojo Magazine as "one of the best guitar-pop records of the last 10 years," and it consistently shows up on lists of top pop albums of all time.

Andy still records with Myracle Brah and has released 8 stellar albums. He has opened for the likes of Todd Rundgren, Rick Ocasek, Tommy Stinson, Bob Mould, Third Eye Blind, Eve 6, Blur and Modest Mouse. He is currently pursuing his rockabilly side with The Bleaker Street Cowboys, whose song "Bumpy Ridin" has become an internet sensation with more than 40,000 hits.

Ken Schopf lived and played music in Boston for 20 years before moving to Baltimore and becoming part of The Modern Ruins. For much of this time he played in seminal swamp/roots rock band Slide, recording three albums and sharing the stage with the likes of Wilco, Dr. John and Ivan Neville.

Following Slide's breakup in 1998, Ken played with numerous bands and singer songwriters in Boston, releasing his own album in 2008 under the project name Ligature.

And then came the ragged glory of the cocktail drum. . .
