After the album, Music/JonathanRichman started working with other musicians using The Modern Lovers name. They became a footnote up until around recently when they got some recognition for being amongst the Music/VelvetUnderground and Music/TheStooges as inspiration for punk. Their even given credit for jump-starting the StraightEdge movement with the song "I'm Straight", showing one of the earliest recordings of StraightEdge music.

They started 1970, trapped in obscurity. They recorded a few songs for an album that never got off the ground. They then disbanded, and got back together in 1976. This time they succeeded in releasing the album, with both the original tracks and some new ones they recorded. The self titled is considered a precursor to Music/PunkRock.
