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.

Gangway is one of those rare bands that should have been major popstars of the 80's but it didn't happen.
Maybe it was lack of airplay or recording distribution or some other lack of exposure.
I would love to read an interview from a band member and their take on that subject.

I'm posting this in hopes of anyone who is not familiar with Gangway's music to listen to this to get an overview.
Go out and buy all of their CDs (Even though most of them are used and Gangway won't see a dime for these purchases)
and support their new upcoming songs releases (See Link Below)

I remember hearing the album Sitting in the Park and it was quite good. I'm guessing that a few of those songs are on this compilation, thanks for sharing it. Will have to be looking out for their new songs!

Very talented and underrated band from Denmark. "The Twist" and the original "Sitting in the Park" worth a listen.

Thanks for sharing.
Hit that perfect beat!
