LAST TICKET TO TANGO It's a mystery why Daniel Takes A Train never hit the big time in the 1980’s. After all, their members had recorded with Tom Robinson and The Monochrome Set, had tea and cakes with Slade and T Rex, partied with Paula Yates and The Pet Shop Boys at the 1987 Brits and even stole a set list from The Smiths! Fate played a hand in the reversal of band’s fortunes when, 30 years after splitting up, they were discovered via an old YouTube video by Germany’s leading indie label, and their previously unheard demos formed the basis of their debut LP Style, Charm and Commotion (Firestation). Reforming to play a series of sell out shows and to share their incredible story with dozens of media outlets, the now fifty-something musicians decided it was time to play the music game all over again. The result of all this new-found creativity is the release of their first ‘proper’ studio album: Last Ticket To Tango. Featuring 10 original new tracks all of which fit seamlessly into the musical landscape of 2020, the band also revisit their earliest musical influences: new wave, soul, ska and 80’s synth pop. And with studio production by Pat Collier (Katrina and The Waves, Primal Scream, Maximo Park), Last Ticket to Tango has ‘classic album’ written all over it.
Last Ticket to Tango is available on CD and leading digital music platforms
