River City People ‎– Walking On Ice (12″)

Some mature pop/rock from Liverpool quartet, River City People. From 1990 and a bit of a cracker if your into melody tinged rock with vocals from Siobhan Maher. The rest of the band included David Snell on bass and brothers Paul and Tim Speed on drums and guitar. Produced by Don Gehman who gave it an American style sheen.

This did not get the success it deserved, another band woefully overlooked in favour of the band Texas. The album it’s from “Say Something Good” is worth checking out. Backed by a couple of quality B-sides with the acoustic “Huskisson Street” and the rockier folk of “Black” (a bit of static noise but it was the best I could do)
