The Modest are:

Andre Preview - Bass/Vocals

Richard Reid - Drums

Anton Goldapples - Guitar/ Lead Vocals












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 at lucky jims gentelmans drinking establishment with Richard Reid, formerly of popular beat combo The Jamm, led to him being 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, Northern Soul, Motown, Stax and more has eventually taken

over …to some extent....
