Clive Gregson's band Any Trouble were a favourite with many when they were the great white hope for Stiff Records in the 1980’s and scored much coverage in the music press (including the front cover of Melody Maker) with their post-modern sound. They also had a very strong and loyal live following and much radio play for Clive’s songs ‘Yesterday’s Love’, ‘Girls Are Always Right’, ‘Second Choice‘, ‘Trouble With Love’ and their cover of ‘Baby, Now That I’ve Found You’. After 3 albums with Stiff and 2 more for EMI America, they broke up in 1984 and Clive Gregson went solo. However, they were never forgotten, and Cherry Red have recently released a ‘Best Of’ compilation of all their Stiff recordings that has been very favourably reviewed. To launch the release, Any Trouble played a sold-out London show at the end of 2013. The success of that gig led to them booking more live dates for 2014.
The Independent's Pierre Perrone attended their first comeback gig and said it was 'arguably the best reformation of a year in which I have seen The Police, Genesis and Ducks Deluxe..' They signed to Stiff Records again, reunited with original producer John Wood (Squeeze, Nick Drake, etc.) and recorded the 'Life In Reverse' album in 2007. Following the success of the 2014 tour , the band have recorded a new CD “Present Tense“ (scheduled for October 2015 release) and are playing more live dates to support that release. Clive has also established himself as a songwriter and performer in his own right. He spent ten years playing in Richard Thompson's band, collaborated with Christine Collister on a series of critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums, worked in a trio with Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction) and Boo Hewerdine (The Bible) and has also toured extensively with Nanci Griffith as a mainstay of her Blue Moon Orchestra. He is the author of ‘I Love This Town’, A-Listed on BBC Radio 2 and a radio favourite!
