Wire Train Discography of CDs


In A Chamber/Between Two Worlds In A Chamber/Between Two Worlds CD (1995)
CD Check Availability  Details
Wire Train CD discography Like their 415 Records labelmates Translator, San Francisco's Wire Train featured two singer-songwriters who rarely collaborated, but whose songwriting styles complemented each other extremely well. Kurt Herr's sunshiny pop songs are immediately engaging, but it's Kevin Hunter's darker, slightly Buffalo Springfield-esque guitar jangle that's finally more intriguing. 1984's IN A CHAMBER has two tracks, "Chamber of Hellos," and the moody "Never," that are unmatched by anything on the follow-up; however 1985's BETWEEN TWO WORLDS has a folk-rock grace which moves beyond the earnest Byrds/R.E.M. emulations of some of Wire Train's contemporaries. Songs like "Love Love," and "The Last Perfect Thing," are unassuming folk-rock gems. Kurt Herr left after the second album, and subsequent Wire Train releases were never quite the same. 2 LP's on 1 CD. Personnel: Kurt Herr, Kevin Hunter (vocals, guitar); Anders Rundblad (vocals); Brian Macleod , Gil Sola (drums). Photographer: Trudy Fisher. Arranger: David Kahne.

No Soul No Strain No Soul No Strain CD (1992)
CD Check Availability  Details
No Soul No Strain completes the descent of Wire Train from an endearing new-wave pop band to a rather boring M.O.R. outfit -- something which happens to so many groups that it's difficult to really blame Wire Train for it. The record offers no buzzy, hooky pop confections like "Chamber of Hellos" -- no one could expect the band to go on in that vein forever -- and opts instead for blandly rocking moments; the album's best points are lame Britpop moves which make Wire Train sound like a second-rate, bargain-bin, late-eighties Manchester band. This isn't to say that No Soul No Strain is absolutely terrible -- there's some decent pop involved -- but it's a pretty lamentable decline for a band like Wire Train. ~ Nitsuh Abebe All lyrics by Kevin Hunter, music by Wire Train. Personnel: Kevin Hunter (vocals); Jeff Trott (guitar); Brian Macleod (drums). Audio Mixers: Bill Bottrell; Bob Salcedo. Recording information: Toad Hall Studio, Pasadena, CA. Photographers: Chris Wroblewski; Kim Stringfellow. Wire Train: Kevin Hunter (vocals), Jeff Trott (guitar), Anders Rundblad (bass), Brian MacLeod (drums).

Wire Train's fourth album, their first after leaving 415 Records, doesn't have anything as immediately grabbing as "Chamber of Hellos" or "Skills of Summer," but it's both a much better album than its dismissive reviews at the time suggested and a tremendous improvement over 1987's limp, overproduced Ten Women. David Tickle's production is very simple, emphasizing the guitar interplay of Kevin Hunter and Jeffrey Trott, with subtle ...
Last Perfect Thing: A Retrospective Last Perfect Thing: A Retrospective CD (1996)
CD Check Availability  Details
Wire Train's musical style reflected the cross-breeding between post-new wave power-pop and post-disco dance music that characterized the early '80s. The guitars jangled and there were hooks and catchy choruses with harmony vocals, just like the mid-'60s (not to mention covers of Bob Dylan and Buffalo Springfield), but the tempos were unusually quick and the drummer even pushed the beat, while touches of keyboard sometimes shimmered on the edges of the sound picture. More popular bands such as U2 and R.E.M. were doing roughly the same thing at the same time, if with a bit more distinction. But Wire Train frontman Kevin Hunter had an ear for ...
