The Leaving Trains CD review [Steel Cage]
May 3, 2005, 17:50



Ever since my chi (closed head injury) in '89, my memory has been for shite. I'm lucky if I can remember who I taked to on the phone last night, much less some band I haven't thought about in 15 years. Not that I forgot the Leaving Trains, mind you. I still remember all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth surrounding their FUCK album, back when many of you were still on yer mammy's teats. I'm also kinda remembering that I weren't much of a fan either; but after hearing this long-player I'm now wondering if my brain injury happened earlier than I thought cause this band rocks! According to the extensive liner notes by longtime frontman and seemingly, last original member, Falling James, this 23-song gem is the band's first-ever “live” LP. The music covers the band's humble beginnings, with tracks from as far back as 1985 up until 2002, along with the many lineup changes, and doesn't let up. Quality old time p-rock from the git-go! A nonstop party and ass-kickin' all at once! Longtime fans should abso-freakin'-lutely love this and those of you who, like yers truly, who've never actually listened to the L-Trains before will find it very satisfying indeed. Time to scout the “used-vinyl” and secondhand CD shops around my neck o' the woods for more. [Steel Cage]
