Modern WeeperS

After a week of research with no leads, I'm now asking you... Who are The Modern Weepers? According to Mercury Lounge's website (they play there on May 27th)...

"The Modern Weepers are a three piece band from Manchester, England. Well travelled and well known in their native England, The Modern Weepers continue to thrill audiences and critics alike with their electronic melodies and classic Mope Rock lyrics. Led by Mancunian frontman Gary Dibble and co frontman "Hugh," they are backed up by the American Chet Skinship on keyboards. Since Gary's recent release from Her Majesty's Prison in Wormwood Scrubs for political protests (Miners strike) and "Hugh's" "acquittal" on morals charges, the Modern Weepers will begin their 10 city USA tour on Friday, May 27th at New York City's prestigious Mercury Lounge."

Whoever they are, tickets are on sale.
