-DjPaulT Recommended 12″

“Chamber Of Hellos” is the debut single by American New wave/Alternative Rock band from San Francisco Wire Train.

In June 1983, Wire Train signed to the local 415 Records label, also home to acts like Translator, Red Rockers and Romeo Void, all of which found themselves with national distribution when 415 entered into a deal with Columbia Records.

Wire Train’s debut album, In a Chamber, produced by David Kahne at The Automatt in San Francisco, was released late in 1983. It achieved success on the U.S. college charts during 1984, and the band toured as openers for Big Country.

In the U.S. the single was relesd on 12″ with “I’ll Do You” both tracks remixed by Ivan Ivan.

    Hello there Paul!! Gosh, I am full-on stimulated by this posting!! I’m a big fan of the 415 Records label because of their roster of artists. Plus, Ivan Ivan is on here with the remix and I really crave his work. Oh Paul, you put me in a delirium over the delights that you showcase. I love that this is a recommended 12-inch by you as you have the best tastes!! I am so thrilled to finally get this song and its B-side from you. Man, what a gift!! I’m already drooling ear wax!!

    Have a fabulous weekend and always, take care of yourself!!!

    I remember local record stores promoting Wire Train’s first album when it came out. It’s great to rediscover them after all this time.


  7. Walter C Says:

    This is what results when an American band has obvious British influences. Fantastic!

    Great record. Thanks for posting this.

    Oh wow, wow! I’ve not heard this song in decades. I googled it and discovered how much I enjoyed this single back in the day. Of course, I wasn’t aware of the existence of an extended version, so yay! 🙂

    Thank you Dj PaulT and hoping you;re having a nice weekend. 🙂


  11. rred Says:

    A nice discovery. Thanks!

    BTW, I really like the Billy Ocean – Mystery Lady (US 12″ Promo) LP, can’t stop listening to it! Hope it can be remastered with 2M Bronze and manual declick. Wonder what will be the difference…


  12. Beto Says:

    Amazing Post!! Federico Gil Sola (drummer) have a long career as a drummer in Argentina, since late 80’s. He is still on the road. Some guy who use to work in his studio told me “Wire Train” played with The Cure as support act on those days.
    (I hope my english is good enough)
    Thank you very much, Paul!
    Regards from Argentina.
