Probably against my better judgement, this is part 3 of the KLF weekend and a bit. One of the most interesting bands of any time, there’s much already said on the internet and any contribution from myself is only really adding to the noise. I’d suggest wikipedia if you really want the whole story as the articles there have been prepared with a lot of love.
Last Train To Trancentral was both part 3 of the stadium house trilogy, and the remix of part 5 of the Pure Trance series(E-Train To Trancentral). Due to pressing errors, only 1000 copies of the Pure Trance version of Last Train To Trancentral made it to the stores. The first two versions presented here are from Ultra Rare Trax and the DFC Ambient House compilation respectively. The third is from the Moody Boys reconstruction of the Stadium House version.
KLF – Last Train To Trancentral(remix) (from the DFC Ambient House album).
Not too much to say about any of the versions of Last Train To Trancentral other than my techno colleague at the time loved it. He lived in a house that you had to climb a ladder to get into the bathroom and went on to found Rub A Dub records in Paisley as well as running Club 69 IIRC. Rub a Dub had a store in the Virginia Galleries, but that was destroyed by the Marks and Spencers tunnel. I believe them to be somewhere near the St. Enoch subway station these days, but I’ve never seen it.
Bonus tracks: two version of The Orb – Borrowed Love from The Orb – Anthology 2 & The Orb – Morphology.
Borrowed Love dates from roughly April 1989 and precedes the later release of A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Center Of The Ultraworld(Loving You) by around 6 months. At this time The Orb is comprised of Alex Paterson and Jimmy Cauty.
