Trax (Home E.P.)

Here's a great dark sounding Synth Punk Record. Trax were a five piece from Dunfermline, Scotland. They formed in 1978, calling themselves Straits; but changed their name to Trax due to a conflict of name with a band from York. I found THIS cool website where you can read about Trax in detail, as well as other bands who played the Kinema Ballroom. According to the page, Trax had written 40 songs, but it looks as though this self released effort was their only record; sometime in 1980 they called it quits. Band Members were: Willie Adamson, (Vocals) Derek Armstrong, (Bass, and Vocals) Nobby Martin, (Keyboards) Dougie Ross, (Guitar) and Tony Taylor (Drums).

Chuffed to find this blog.

I was their No 1 fan cum roadie cum lighting / sound engineer cum archivist. We had a nostalgic reunion meal / drink to celebrate 30 years since the release of the single with Neill Martin / Derek Armstrong / Tony Taylor and myself in Edinburgh in 2009.
