News and Notes: Leo Nine reissue ‘Modern’


Was 1998 really a decade ago? That was the year a little known band from Australia – sporting the moniker Battered Fish – released a moody Brit-poppy album called Modern.

In a fit of nostalgia and perhaps a hat tip to Pavement and their practice of re-releasing albums a decade after their original release date, the band – now known as Leo Nine – has decided to offer a digital version of Modern. The band’s name isn’t the only thing 2008 about the re-release. A download of the album will be available, for a limited time, on a Radiohead/Paste Magazine-style pay what you like scale. Or as the band put it in an e-mail, “Just pick the price that suits your generosity.”
