Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers - Abdul & Cleopatra


On this date in 1978, Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers released their seventh single, "Abdul & Cleopatra". It was backed by "Oh Carol". The A side appeared on their fifth album, Back In Your Life. The B side was a non-LP track. The power pop/punk prototype band formed in Boston and had David Robinson (later of The Cars) and Jerry Harrison (later of Talking Heads) as members of The Modern Lovers in the early days. While The Modern Lovers no longer exist, Jonathan Richman is still performing.
