The Great Train Robbery "Not Until The Spaceships Come"

The Great Train Robbery was/still is...? a Great Local band (Somebody Please ! tell me if they are still gigging!) who were part of a Great local original music scene that seemed to be thriving in the early 90s in Buffalo along w/Gods Children, RULE!, Jive Injection, Aceifer, Cheshire Cat, George Puleo, The Need etc. etc. ...just as the Goo Goo Dolls were getting a big push from the big boys the Buffalo Original music scene seemed to be inspired and thrived on a few big venues and some strong local radio support, namely Jessie Galante and The Fox (see Jessies blogs)...the scene was very exciting and seemed to be leading to a beneficial outcome for all the bands involved before it sorta fizzled out toward the late 90s.
My good friend Dan loaned me this CD which has all the lyrics for every song on the insert (cool!)

Vincent Fossitt saxophone vocals percussion

Just found this post on GTR. They were a great band, I recently bought the live album Live & Intensified and it's incredible...just like I remember them. Lived up there from 86 - 91. Great town, solid music scene. I've also some discovered some decent videos of them on youtube.
