Lineup and Details for Soul Train: Loose Ends on Sun 26th August 2012
America first laid eyes on Loose Ends through their 1985 single "Hanging on A String (Contemplating)," a jazzy RnB tune featuring trio Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene, and Steve Nichol. While the song became a modest success, peaking at number 43 on Billboard's Hot 100, Loose Ends inexplicably never equaled their first hit, eventually fading from the American music scene. However, the British group continued recording songs that registered with dance audiences as well as European music fans. Although I really liked "Hanging on A String," I admittedly lost track of them until I heard a recent podcast which devoted an episode to their music. Subsequently I looked up all their albums, and I discovered a disc from 1990: Look How Long. While it features a different Loose Ends lineupLinda Carriere, Sunay Suleyman, and McIntoshit brings their '80s sound into the '90s while keeping their jazz-inflected music intact.
