The Modest are:
Andre Preview - Bass/Vocals
Richard Reid - Drums
Anton Goldapples - Guitar/ Lead Vocals
Previously…the chaps all worked for the same firm,
but after their last big job together, Andre and Anton
had to go ‘away’ for a while, something that original
drummer Jason mysteriously managed to avoid…until recently.
A chance meeting with Constable X at select gentlemen’s drinking club ‘Lucky Jim’s’ led to his recruitment behind the drum kit, despite the lads suspicions that he just might be an undercover copper…suspicions that were born out when X was transferred to another case following a truncheon malfunction.
Next and currently drumming is Richard Reid, formerly of popular beat combo The Jamm, taken on in the mistaken belief that he was Reed Richards of The Fantastic Four and that his super power of being able to stretch his body in any direction would prove useful in drawing in todays TV freakshow addicted audiences. Sadly they've had to settle just for him being good at hitting stuff in time.
And so The Modest continue, a band originally intended
to be based on their love of money.
However, their love of the music of The Small Faces,
The Who, The Action, The Kinks, The Jam, Dexy's,
Northern Soul, Motown, Stax and more has eventually taken
over…to some extent....
