The Leaving Trains were an American indie rock band from Los Angeles, California. The Leaving Trains were founded in 1980 by Falling James Moreland, a frontman who became known for his chaotic performances and penchant for cross-dressing. Falling James had previously been a member of punk rock bands the Mongrels and the Downers before assembling the group with guitarist Manfred Hofer, bassist Tom Hofer, keyboardist Sylvia Juncosa and drummer Hillary Laddin. They played locally for three years before. Album 1994 11 Songs. More By The Leaving Trains. Amplified Pillows. Emotional Legs. Kill Tunes. Falling James continues to go through band members like Imelda Marcos went through shoes but, given the lineup flux, this is a remarkably solid album - not great, but very solid. Your feedback.

The Leaving Trains were formed out of sheer boredom and suburban desperation in Los Angeles in the summer of 1980 by Falling James and brothers Manfred and Tom Hofer after their 1978-1979 high school punk band, the Mongrels, broke up. Hunter Crowley was the best drummer on their side of town, and, after much persuasion, he eventually joined. Other early drummers included Hilary Laddin the Martyrs, Raoul Endara Smog Marines, Terry Graham Bags, Gun Club and Jason Kahn Universal Congress Of.

TLT's first true track after the ambient noisewash of the opening track sounds very '77 - probably most like THE CLASH circa the second album (indeed there are degrees of "Guns On The Roof" in there). Rich, powerful stuff which sounds fresh and enthusiastic. "Go A-Fuckin' Head" reinforces the CLASH sound with all the rocket fuelled energy of THE RAMONES injected in to create a hybrid of both group's strengths. "Nothing Left" follows a similar path, with a vocalist sounding like MARTIN BOWES growling along. With his penchant for covering people like ADAM & THE ANTS, QUEEN & SOFT CELL, I though TRENT REZNOR had snuck another cover in of GARY NUMAN's "Cars" but breath easy, "A Woman's Clouds" is one of TLT's own creations - smoother, and more a lounge song than the madcap energy bursts which came before it. Strong, medium-paced and distinctive.
"Stowaway" sounds so distinctive and classy, it reminds me of mid-90's Indie guitar groups, kinda sad and medium-paced thing. "Sex War" returns us to the front line of Punk Reborn. Hey, this music was important in my life and it's great to hear someone who's able to belt out the same sound with the same enthusiasm - rarely can anyone seem to manage this task. "Osmosis" sounds like a more experimental Roxy group - Art School Punk - maybe early WIRE. "Blacklist" keeps the energy and anger, but squeezes it into something more like a cross between IGGY and THE CRAMPS. "Can't Afford To Die" returns to CLASH territory with a slightly twangy C/W accent to it. "Chloraformality" falls somewhere between a more commercial period PUBLIC IMAGE, slowed to soporific state KILLING JOKE ("Jana") and perhaps a touch of the WAHs. But it's better than the sum of these randomly thrown identikit pieces.

Great stuff. Not really MJ territory, but I loved it anyway.
