Track Of The Day : The Rainkings - In From The Rain
The Rainkings were formed in 1989 when Stephen Holt and Dave Swift left Inspiral Carpets just as they were on the cusp of breaking through. They formed The Rainkings and released a couple of singles before disbanding in 1994. They reformed in 2013 and released a career retrospective. For one week only they've made a new track In From The Rain available on soundcloud and it's our Track Of The Day.
Since then, they've got together whenever Stephen's Inspiral Carpets commitments allow (he rejoined in 2012) and In From The Rain is a new previously unheard track that was recorded with Charlatans producer Jim Spencer in December 2013.
There are rumours of gigs at some point this year, but as yet they are unconfirmed. The song is only available to listen to for one week.
We interviewed The Rainkings back in April 2013.
The Rainkings are on Twitter and Facebook.
