The Waltones were formed in Manchester in 1986, are great and played proper pre-Madchester indie, they comprised Alex Fyans (Drums), Mark Collins (Guitar) of The Charlatans, James Knox (Vocals, Harmonica) and Manny Lee (Bass, Backing Vocals), recorded four singles, an album and a Peel session.
The Waltones may well have gone on to have more success but, Unfortunately, despite gaining much street cred and selling out their LP ‘The Deepest’, their distributor Red Rhino went bankrupt. The new distributor APT refused to take on Red Rhino’s debts and thus no re-press of the album was undertaken.
Included in this compilation is the Deepest album and all of the a & b sides of their 7” singles. ‘She looks right through me’ is on the bonus 7” single along with the b sides ‘Special 20’ and ‘Burning Conscience’.
