comentando Fiction Tales, LP, Album, DID 11. I had been living in Plymouth for 3 weeks when I was given free-reign to spend £10 at the local Virgin Megastore in Armada Way. It was 1981 and I had a tenner burning a hole in my pocket and standing in, what seemed to me at the time, the largest record shop in the world. Having lived near Devizes in Wiltshire for the previous 3 years, Plymouth was already a huge city to me and wandering into the erstwhile Branson empire was a treat in itself. Modern Eon were a band I knew little about. They came from Liverpool and were signed to the Virgin offshoot Dindisc, home to OMD, Martha & The Muffins, Nash The Slash and Monochrome Set. They released one album and 5 singles and appeared on a few European collections including "Double Art". So why the attention? In short, it was down to mystery.
