Any Trouble - 1980 - Where Are All the Nice Girls?

Two years have passed since my first post. Over 865,000 hits and an infinity of comments.
Good and bad moments.
I have to give the thanks to all those who have helped me to build this small music site.
Thank you very much to Paul, Patrick, Davester, Bluecartoon, Geekroick, Popcat, Rush2112, Josega65, Tomy, Chang1112, D. Moose and to all those that have supported me and those with their comments have given me forces to continue.
To celebrate it, this 5 stars album with other of my all times favourite song: Yesterday's Love.
Manchester-native Gregson formed the original band in 1975 while attending teaching school in Crewe, taking the group's name from a misquote from the Mel Brooks film Blazing Saddles. After a brief moment as a folky trio with singer Tom Jackson, by 1976 Any Trouble changed to a four-piece rock group, speeding up their repertoire in response to the punk movement -- by this point the lineup was Gregson (vocals/guitar), Chris Parks (guitar), Phil Barnes (bass), and Mel Harley (drums). They built a strong following playing the pub circuit and released their own single, catching the attention of Radio One's John Peel, who quickly took the band and played the song on his show. This exposure started a small-scale bidding war from several labels. By 1980, the group signed with Stiff Records.
John Wood , a renowned producer (Nick Drake, John Martyn, Richard Thompson) who had recently produced Squeeze, was hired to produce Any Trouble's first album. Where Are All the Nice Girls? which had all the makings of a new wave classic, was met with some rave reviews but failed to rack up the big sales that were expected of it. After the record failed commercially, Stiff suggested that Gregson drop the band and redefine himself as a solo artist a la Elvis Costello - Buddy Gregson. Gregson declined, deciding instead to replace the band's drummer Harley, with the more capable Martin Hughes . They began work on the follow-up immediately.
