Wire Train left their heart (and careers) in San Francisco



Always described as hip place to live, San Francisco enjoyed a burgeoning alternative rock scene during the '80s. We've already featured some of the Alt-SF scene on Lost and Found before with bands like Romeo Void and Translator, so let's do another band with Wire Train and I'll Do You.

In 1983, Wire Train released their debut album with the lead single I'll Do You. The song was a regional hit and got some play on MTV but never charted. The video for I'll Do You goes Top Hat with lead singer Kevin Hunter taking his high society date on a carriage ride to the country only to have surprising results.

Wire Train released five albums during the '80s and '90s before derailing.
