Modern Eon Full LP

Like the better-known Teardrop Explodes and Echo & the Bunnymen, the post-punk band Modern Eon was based in Liverpool, England. Fitting somewhere between the odd rhythms and textured turmoil of the Comsat Angels and the aggressive side of Sad Lovers and Giants, the band released only one studio LP, 1981's excellent Fiction Tales.

Great album but one flaw here...
You replaced the first track "Second still" with an early single track "Visionary"
However well done for putting the tracks up here...
I hope when it eventually gets re-released it has the "Mechanic" single b-side "splash" as track 13 because it really does finish the album in my view...
Still sounds great after all this time, doesn't it?
It does to me, thanks for putting it here

Thank You. Hard to find. A textbook example of an overlooked new wave album.
