Gangway has released two new songs...


Gangway has released two new songs...

Gangway has issued two new songs recently and possibly more.
Their first new music since 1996.
Gangway should have been big. These guys are melodic geniuses.
Their first recording ‘The Twist’ 1984 sounded like a cross between The Smiths, The Jam, and The Cure.
Their later sound/style is a cross between Squeeze, Terry Hall, and Pet Shop Boys.


Here are the newly released songs:

I have the 1988 release of Sitting In The Park on CD and it is phenomenal from start to finish... one of only a few albums I like every track.

Thanks for posting this.. i spend quite a lot of time collecting their cd's about 10 years ago or so... Wasn't to easy to find them being from the US. Never did find the physical copy of Compendium which should have been the easiest to find. Good to hear that they are still around.

I believe that was a factor in their rise to fame; it was so difficult to obtain their recordings.
You had to get them from Denmark or the Netherlands. (Sometime Japan)
Japanese love Gangway!
It took me several years to collect all of their CD (Pre-internet days) Import ordering.
