The Railway Children - Brighter (1987)
This band have been on constant rotation in my headphones recently, they hail from Wigan, and signed with Factory for two singles and one album until they got a deal from Virgin a year later. They were hated by the NME, who wrote them off as Smiths rip offs. They’ve probably got a point, but I think that’s a bit harsh, most jangle bands of the late 80s sounded like The Smiths, it was hard not to at that point in time. Anyway, this second single from them is a little gem, always cheers me up.
