Any Trouble

Any Trouble started with Stiff Records in 1980,  releasing three albums before moving to EMI America for two more albums. Songwriter Clive Gregson then left to start a solo career. He later joined Richard Thompson's band, recorded five albums with Christine Collister and was part of a trio with Eddi Reader and Boo Hewerdine. His songs have been recorded by Nanci Griffith, Fairport Convention, Norma Waterson and Kim Carnes among others.


Any Trouble got back together for a new album titled “Life In Reverse” in 2007. This album reunited them with original producer John Wood, whose credits include Nick Drake, Squeeze, Pink Floyd and Nico. The revival of interest in the New Wave sounds of the '80s prompted the re-release in 2013 of Any Trouble's Stiff catalogue. The growing interest prompted them to reform for occasional live gigs and the band had short but successful UK tours in December 2014 and 2015. They are planning to tour early in 2017.

Their popularity prompted them to record a brand new album Present Tense, released in in October 2015.
