Train Driver In Eyeliner – Nick Sanderson Revisited – The Earl Brutus Cover Versions

“Looking out the window of a train is the only time I feel really relaxed.” 
Nick Sanderson
Nick Sanderson was a train driver. He wore eyeliner. On April 22nd 2021 he should have been 60 years old.
A lighting conductor of creative disturbance, as frontman of the legendary Earl Brutus, Nick knew all about the strange and inescapable ambiguities of the British condition.
Train Driver in Eyeliner is a Memorial Device that remembers him in all his genius and life-force, a collection of 19 Earl Brutus Greats, specially recorded by friends, family and fanatics including Saint Etienne, the Jesus & Mary Chain’s Jim Reid, Luke Haines’ Surrey Wrecking Crew, plus Nick’s wife and son Romi and Syd, Earl Brutus bandmates and spiritual glam rock peers Giuda.
It’s all available as a limited-edition cassette, a medium that is both retrospective and incredible futuristic – like the life and times of Nick himself.

Cassettes can be pre-ordered (see link) for delivery on Nick’s 60th Birthday, 22nd April 2021. 
All profits for this release will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
