In January 2005, brothers David and Danny Brown ask Matt Slinkard to 'play bass on some songs' at a show after the pair finished a demo. The notion of a hired gun bassist soon faded and Secondary Modern was born. In December of 2005, the band released their first full-length album, 'A Finance Opera,' which was recorded and mixed in three days that summer. Since then the band's sound has continued to expand, making for intense, wildly varied live sets featuring multiple versions of songs from 'A Finance Opera.' 'A very well-rounded and mature debut.' -Brent Stewart, Flipside.
