Wire Train were a band whose music evolved from record to record at a time when artists were expected to repeat their past successes. An intense attachment exists between fans of each ‘period’ of Wire Trains music, with fans of each sometimes unaware of the others. Music critics often favor the bands scrappy beginnings, classic rock fans the middle ‘folky’ period and most musicians favor the latter experimental deconstructed pop style.
Wire Train disbanded in 1993 after MCA declined to release Snug, by far the bands finest record.
The disc was never shopped to other labels and all copies were lost until 2003 when a master DAT was found. Wire Train is Jeffrey Trott, Anders Rundblad, Brian Macleod, Kevin Hunter.
