Debut LP of the top british folk pop band of late 80`s. Their sound, based on keyboards, bass, accordion, strings, horns and the melo-romantic singing of Johny Brown, is raw, passionate, sad and haunted. A kind of individual and social requiem for living in british cities. A mournful staring at the beauty, hurting and heartening.
After More Tales From The City the band left small Flim Flam label and signed Rough Trade seeking a richer and shinier producted sound, but the fresh, direct, sudden, wounded feeling of these "imperfect" songs remained finally unrepeatable.
