Long ago (Wed, 26 Apr 89 23:19:06 EDT) and far far away Jon Drukman
(jsd@umass.bitnet) had this to say:

    They do the train noises with their breath at the beginning of "Train
    Running Low On Soul Coal" and I think general synth support at various
    places.  BTW, does anybody happen to think that that train impersonation
    is the best simulation of a railway train ever created?  I do, and it
    sounds a damn sight better than if they had just dubbed a train effect
    onto the tape, too.  (The guitar as whistle really blows me away.)

I agree.

I didn't realize that The Loving single was in short supply.  I've
the CD-3 for a week or two now, and I agree with John Relph about
"The World IS Full Of Angry Young Men."  It's a good song, by far
the best thing to b e done by Colin Moulding since The Big Express.

If you still ned a copy, Main Street Records in Northampton had
a bunch last time I looked...
