night trains Lovesick 1987-2017 (CD, £7.25)label: Acid Jazz
Night Trains formed in 1987 and, along with bands such as Galliano, became part of the first wave of acts to sign to Acid Jazz when the label was run by Ed and Gilles Peterson. The albums constitute 30 years of tracks from the band’s marvellous discography. The album includes the underground club hit ‘Open Channel D’ which is now available for the first time since 1987. During the early 90s the band released two albums, ‘Loaded’ and ‘Sleazeball’, along with several singles and EPs. ‘Sleazeball’ featured the hit ‘Lovesick’, possibly the ban’d most well known song. Tracks from ‘Sleazeball’ and ‘Loaded’ are included on the album along with ‘No More Heroes’, the stomping Northern Soul reinterpretation of The Stranglers’ 70s new wave classic. Comes packaged with an 8 page booklet featuring sleeve notes from Eddie Piller, explaining the history of the band and images documenting the band’s last 30 years.
