From The Music Museum of New England:
In Boston, MA back in the 1980’s lived a power pop band called The Modes. Their sound combined hard rock with melodic pop sensibilities. The band was formed by guitarist / singer / songwriter, Steve Davidson after stints in the (Real) Kids and then the punk metal outfit Slash. Both bands were popular attractions, particularly at the notorious Boston nightclub called The Rat. The Modes enjoyed a remarkable climb only to implode in a tangle of music business complications.
