Modern Eon Fiction Tales 2CD
Issued on CD for the first time, an expanded and remastered edition of Modern Eon's Fiction Tales that provides a long overdue re-evaluation of a lost Post-Punk classic.
 
Featuring the album plus singles, b-sides and previously unreleased recordings made in 1982 (immediately prior to the band’s demise).
 
Compiled by band members Alix Plain and Danny Hampson, and accompanied by detailed sleevenotes by Andrew Keeling.
 
---------
 
Having formed in Liverpool in 1978; built around the collaborative dynamics of Alix Plain and Danny Hampson, Modern Eon burned brightly but briefly, issuing a run of singles and the remarkable album ‘Fiction Tales’ before disbanding prior to the recording of a second long player.
 
Distinctly different from most of their post-punk peers, the band were musically ambitious and adventurous, willing to experiment and inclined towards the poetic and the profound.
