For fans of sophisticated pop, The Man Upstairs, The Sullivans, The Style Council, Jim Jiminee etc. Named after a Hungarian art-house movie, Daniel Takes A Train was formed in London in the early 1980’s. Performing under the name Illicit Kiss with Rupert Blomfield on bass, they rehearsed in a cellar off the King’s Road and performed at West End nightclubs attracting a cult following on the club and live music scene. With the addition of James Hannington (drums) and Paul Davey (saxophone), the newly-named Daniel Takes A Train swapped floral shirts for polo-necked jumpers and developed a slicker, more contemporary sound – one that would be more likely to dent the pop charts of the day.

Trading funky basslines and jazz guitar licks with their natural pop sensibilities, the boys got a manager and began playing bigger venues including The Astoria and Ronnie Scott’s and also at the capital’s illegal warehouse parties. The big record deal eluded them but they earnt a Sunday newspaper spread for playing a record 25 consecutive gigs on the Circle Line and headlines for blagging their way into the 1987 Brit Awards after party. A Radio One DJ hailed them live on air as “the highlight of the evening”.
