Mute Elephant Presents:
The Railway Children + support from Section 25
Live at Borderline, Soho
Formed in Wigan, in the summer of 1984, The Railway Children fronted by singer, guitarist Gary Newby, started out by taking their “Gentle Sound” onto the then bouyant music circuits of Wigan and Manchester. The buzz created by the band was immediate and resulted in them signing to the enigmatic Factory Records, home of Joy Division and New Order. A mini album ‘Reunion Wilderness’ was recorded and featured their first single ‘A Gentle Sound’ and the follow up ‘Brighter’. Both singles were an instant hit with the then thriving indie scene and the critically acclaimed album went straight to number one in the independant charts. A string of tours and radio sessions quickly followed and as the band saw their fan base grow dramatically, inevitably major label interest grew.
