Product Description

·
Fronted by Mancunian singer-songwriter Clive Gregson, Crewe-based
band Any Trouble were signed to Stiff Records in 1980 and touted by the music
press as the next Elvis Costello & The Attractions.

 

·
Any
Trouble’s debut album Where Are All The Nice Girls was critically acclaimed at
the time. The band followed with a second studio album, Wheels In Motion
(1981). Stiff also circulated a promotional in-concert album, Live At The
Venue, which only enjoyed a commercial release in Germany. The band then signed
with EMI America before disbanding at the end of 1984.

 

·
Compiled
with help from Clive Gregson and boasting the involvement of all the band
members, this definitive collection offers the band’s complete Stiff
recordings, as a comprehensive ‘Early Years’ package of the band’s musical
history across 1980 and 1981.

 

·
In
addition to the three albums, the package also includes myriad non-album
A-sides and B-sides, including their pre-Stiff debut single ‘Yesterday’s Girls’.
Many of these tracks are extremely hard-to-find on CD now and Live At The Venue
makes its CD debut (apart from a German
CD reissue on Line in 1988).

 

·
Clive
Gregson later launched a productive collaboration with Christine Collister. In
2007, Any Trouble reunited with a brand new album and Clive continues to enjoy
critical and creative success as a singer-songwriter to this day, releasing his
thirteenth solo album This Is Now in May 2013.
