                                                          MORE CLATTER, LESS CHATTER!



Two of the chaps worked for the same firm, but after their last big job together, Andre and Anton had to go ‘away’ for a while...


After the departure of longest serving drummer Rich, a chance meeting at Lucky Jims gentlemans drinking establishment with Jamie Thackeray, (a direct descendant* of  William Makepeace Thackeray the 19th century English novelist best known for his satirical works and pioneer of the modern drunkit**) led to him being offered the vacant drumstool. He declined and brought his own instead.


And so The Modest continue to enthusiastically and energetically peddle live versions of the music they love from artists such as The Small Faces, The Who, The Action, The Kinks, The Jam,  The Specials, Northern Soul, Motown, Stax...and more.
