BLUENOSE B: Forever Passing Trains 12"

There seems to be an endless supply of long-forgotten UK bands who are rediscovered on music blogs these days. I don't know what made the UK such fertile ground for great new wave, indie, and post punk music. Bluenose B are one of those bands that fall somewhere in between indiepop, goth, and new wave, with big, BIG guitars and somewhat dark vocals. The song Forever Passing Trains is features loud, driving guitars and loud, pounding drums, and loud, perfectly gloomy singing, and is, well... LOUD. Burning Up is quite a good track as well, and a bit more melodic. This band released this EP and another EP called My Diary (does anyone have this???), and I think they released a song on a regional UK comp as well. It's time they get rediscovered... download this gem and enjoy!

Bewildered King, I would love to hear them if you're willing to share!

I'll give you what I have but i am not that competent at blogging [just signed up] so let me know how to leave you them and I will alternatively go to www.myspace.com/smileyfox and download from there. there is currently a song called my diary and my beautiful city which are taken from the 2nd EP. fine rain a compilation track is there as well. i am in the process of converting the rest of the vinyl and tapes I have so I will upload them shortly. when i have a little more time i'll tell you why there were so many great bands at this time [especially from liverpool] the title of that bleak story will be the Tyrant Queen called Thatcher.

And yes, Bewildered King, I would love to listen to the rest, too. Couldn't you just upload to Mediafire or Rapidshare and give us the link?

I loved you post because if I hadn't read 'Phantom of the Opera', I, too, would have been misled. You are so right in all the points you raised. staggered was cruelty masqueraded as tradition.

One of the best "new wave" song that I never heard !

I was in Bluenose B throughout this period and wrote the vast majority of songs. This period of music was fantastic, there were loads of great venues, superb bands [politburo, waving at trains, toy taboo]and hilarious moments. all the bands were mates and would lend each other equipment etc. even the more successful musos like mcnabb and wylie would help the younger bands out. i feel extremely fourtunate to have played at time. when i get a chance i'll tell you some stories about time.
