You've reached the site dedicated to San Francisco's finest unsung musical hero's, Wire Train.
Who are they ?
Kevin Hunter, Anders Rundblad, Brian Macleod, Jeffrey Trott, Kurt Herr and Federico Gil Solá.
What have they done ?
During most of the 80's and some of the 90's Wire Train produced some of the most dynamic and exciting guitar-driven
music to emerge from either side of the Atlantic, producing 5 album's worth of excellent material along the way. Go visit the
biography page and find out for more for yourself.
NEW! Youtube videos from Knitting Factory show, Sept 3rd 2009:
Wire Train headline three reunion shows, at:
The Knitting Factory Hollywood on 3rd Sept
The Blank Club San Jose on the 4th
Slim's in San Francisco on 5th Sept 2009
Wow! A veritable 1980’s 415 Records reunion show! All three of these bands were based in San Francisco and recorded for Howie Klien’s infamous 415 label, and all delivered hit records to MTV and national radio. Wire Train eventually signed to MCA at the dawn of the ‘90s. Originally from L.A. before relocating to the Bay Area, the Beatlesque Translator hit a homer with “Everywhere That I’m Not.” Debora Iyall was the striking presence at the front of Romeo Void, whose “Never Say Never” has remained a constant on radio dials for 20 years.
Wire Train's last album for MCA, Snug, has remained unreleased for all these years, but it is now available officially
for download, via iTunes or Amazon.
NEW! Listen to Wire Train live at Blondies in Atlantic City NJ, 1984 - the original line up caught live by the
King Biscuit Flower Hour, streaming now over at Wolfgangs Vault. These are the original tapes from the KBFH transcription
disk thats been around for years, but without the DJ or the canned applause, and with an extra cut, "Slow Down".
What have they been doing recently ?
