T-Coy | Carino+Singles

LTM presents the very first compilation of early House singles and Hacienda classics by underground dance act T-Coy, originally released on the Deconstruction imprint between 1987 and 1989.
Formed from the ashes of Factory group Quando Quango by Simon Topping (ex A Certain Ratio) and Mike Pickering (Hacienda DJ, later M People), T-Coy stood for 'take care of yourself' and became a trio with the addition of crack keyboards player Richie Close. Debut 12" Carino (Spanish for 'darling') appeared in June 1987: a loose-limbed Latinate shuffle with added electro bite. Two more T-Coy singles followed (I Like To Listen and Night Train), along with popular single Dream 17 (co-created with A Guy Called Gerald and released as Annette), and most of the tracks on acid-tinged dance compilation North, issued in 1988.
Though maverick T-Coy never cracked the national charts, Carino remains a timeless deejay favourite, with the original 12" version joined on this CD by recent remixes from Motor City Drum Ensemble and Steve Mac. This remastered compilation includes all tracks from the original T-Coy singles on Decon as well as tracks from North and three remixes. The booklet features detailed liner notes and T-Coy images by photographer Kevin Cummins.
