JR Band 80’s


Talking about the early eighties, you know what to expect: discotime! We were young and had almost but one subject to write about: girls and love. We made the first steps in that area and where, ahum, quit succesfull. Sometimes it lasted one night, sometimes two week or a whole year! Anyways, lots of heartache and worries to write about in wich we were at our best being as drunk as a doormat.

The JR band was a two man formation. After trying to build a top 40 song playing coverband under the name Asahi, we two went along on our own. Not that we played on stage a lot. But every saturday at my parents house we rebuild a room upstairs as a studio, opened the windows and made the whole neighbourhood rock’n roll and doing disco dances. As soon as I learned Nesta to play guitar he went along with us, we renamed the band “Modest”. In that time we also played a lot with each other in one-night bands, just jamming for a night on stage. Mostly playing reggeatunes. All in all, we wrote some tunes then which were saved for prosperity, you can listen to them here. Enjoy…..
