This is the Stiff reissue of this single , it's not as rare as the Pennine version but, it's the version that I have . Yesterdays love is such a great song , one of my all time favorites. 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 Yesterday's Love on Pennine Records 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. In 1984, the band played their last gig and called it quits. Gregson went on to a distinguished, though still under appreciated, career both as a solo artist and as a collaborator with Christine Collister. - Chris Woodstra , All Music Guide It looks like these guy's are still around , go check out the links posted below .
