Modra is snaky, dusty and luminous and not really wound up at all. This low-key outback noir comes from the blues but is as weird in relation to and as separate from the blues as Television once was, as the Birthday Party were, as Brian Crook or Richard Youngs can sometimes be. It is, foremost, guitar music played by guys who look like they should be smoking cigarettes. but arent (its a trick of the lip). And those drums must be coming from the land of Robbie Yeats and Kevin Shea: England. Each is Jimmy Page on the drums, minus the drumsticks-its all balls. Modra: a donkeys tail enshrined in glass.
