Torino, Italy’s time-obscured band Chromagain have resurfaced due to the re-release (with bonus tracks) of their 1985 album Any Colour We Liked. Chromagain’s library is small and doesn’t necessarily offer a fresh sound, echoing as it does the work of many of their more successful contemporaries (Simple Minds and Psychedelic Furs come to mind most readily).
Nonetheless, here is another moment in music archaeology–the preservation in the digital age of albums and tracks that may have otherwise been lost–and fans of the more successful New Wave acts may rejoice at discovering a more obscure counter-part.
The rerelease of Any Colour We Liked features additional unreleased tracks and is available on LP and CD from Mannequin and Anna Logue Records
