Information of Big Big Train

Big Big Train is an English progressive rock band that was founded in 1990. Based in Bournemouth, England, the core band members are songwriter Gregory Spawton and producer Andy Poole. Their first album, Goodbye To The Age of Steam was released in 1994 and was co-produced by Martin Orford of IQ. Age of Steam established the typical melancholy BBT sound influenced by progressive rock from the mid and early 1970s. After two releases which were slightly more commercially orientated but, in fact, less commercially successful, BBT went back to their roots in 2004 and released a concept album called Gathering Speed. This album featured layers of 12-string guitar and Mellotron and also hints at a growing post rock influence. Whilst arguably more derivative than some of their earlier releases, Gathering Speed was a very assured album and was critically well received. With a new singer, Sean Filkins, and with Steve Hughes back on drums after stints with The Enid and Kino, BBT have recently released their fifth album, The Difference Machine, which features performances from Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard, Genesis, Tears for Fears); Dave Meros (Spock's Beard) and Pete Trewavas (Marillion, Transatlantic, Kino).
