ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This second U.S. Mods release reflects a more political focus. It also puts forth a slight change in musical style from the debut album "From The Free World" released two years prior. The songs "Station 7", "Sleeping With Father John" and "Jumping Off Niagara Falls" set the tone for a forbidding perspective of where the world has been and where it may be headed.

A bit of history:

Tom Henninger and Mike Clements started the U.S. Mods in 1986. Mike was banging on the drums with a powerful, straight ahead attitude. Tom was playing his new songs that were inspired by the classic Joe Jackson album “Look Sharp”. Spunky, Hyper-Pop rock with a lyrical bend towards awkward love relationships and social inequities.

With the addition of Bruce Warren, one of the top bass players in the Dayton area, the U.S. Mods sound formed around a great chemistry, mainly beer.

In 1987, the U.S. Mods recorded and released “From The Free World” to college radio. “A Million Tears Away” held the #1 spot on a popular Cleveland college radio station for 4 weeks. The album was on the top 30 play lists of over 275 radio stations across the country.

Soon after, Dave Kraus joined the band as lead guitarist. It was time to let loose and when the Mods went back into the studio to record their new album “Station 7” they were fully engaged and ready to broaden their musical output. The result is a tight collection of songs building upon the Mods impressive musical vocabulary. “Station 7” finds the Mods taking chances lyrically, vocally and using the sound effects to bring out the deliberate, “Sgt. Pepper” sensibility.

In 1989, “Station 7” was released to college radio. Once again, college radio responded with over 320 college radio stations reporting the U.S. Mods on their top 30 play lists. The Mods also got a great deal of airplay on a prominent radio station in Dublin, Ireland. A radio station in Berlin, Germany also reported playing the U.S. Mods "Station 7” LP.

By the summer of 1989 the Mods were working on their next album, “Mindless Moderation”. The album was finished, so what is on the CD is the Mods practicing the new songs for playing live and recording.
