Metro Trinity should have been one of my favourite bands. However they released one ep and then seemed to disappear.
All I know about them is
1) their first release was a shared flexi disc with the inspiral carpets
2) one of their songs appeared on "Sound of Leamington Spa vol 1" compilation
3) they released one ep "Die Young"
4) Strangest of all they featured 2 future members of the Doves
I heard one of the tracks on John Peel and bought the Die Young ep. I've posted the complete ep as I'm pretty certain it is impossible to get hold of.
