A. Front

“Night Train” is the sixth single by the British pop group Visage, released by Polydor Records in June 1982.

The song was the second single from the band’s album The Anvil. It was remixed for the single release with the assistance of John Luongo. “Night Train” and “Whispers” (another track from The Anvil), were used in Japanese adverts for TDK tapes in 1982. “Night Train” peaked at number 12 in the UK and was the band’s final UK Top 40 hit until a remix of their first hit “Fade to Grey” was released in 1993.

    thank youuuuuu!!!
    Dub mix was always out in the last remastered editions cds (i want to think they lost the original masters…)


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Cherry Pop remastered the CD but did not include the “dance Mix” or “dub mix”.


    idris Reply:

    yeah i got this cd ( shameful selection of extra tracks that includes some songs from the first album 12″s ). The Dance mix was only released previously on the triple cd “12” 80s Volume 2″

    I have the original west german pressing of The Anvil on cd…… goes for big $


  6. ex15 Says:

    A disappointing release by Visage, but then “Fade To Grey” remains a classic..

    Night Train is a bland electronic disco fodder type release (IMHO), but is not bad by any means, just lacks being memorable.

    AS always, thanks for the up Paul.

    great maxi-thank you so much & happy halloween


  8. Jason Says:

    Thanks Paul. I didn’t have this one.


  9. Junior Says:

    This is new on me, but love Visage.

    Thanks Paul!


  10. Goodguy Says:

    I always considered this the weakest of their main singles; even more than Tar. To this day, Fade To Grey and The Damned Don’t Cry are their high points…well, maybe The Anvil too. 😉


  11. Glenn Marshall Says:

    Exciting for me as a fan that Hot Gossip dancers Lorraine Whitmarsh & Perri Lister sing back-up on this record.
