Plenty - It Could Be Home

Plenty was formed back in 1986. The founding members were Tim Bowness (No-Man, solo, etc.), Brian Hulse and David K Jones. Three cassette releases appeared between 1987 and 1988, and it was in 1990 when the band took a big hiatus till 2017, when Tim, Brian and David started re-recording the band’s 80s catalogue of 16 tracks, plus a new one, so as to complete their debut official release.
 
Hence, 30+ years later, they guys managed to release “It Could Be Home”, a full-length debut album made in the 80s and put out in the late 10s. Another “strange” music story, which remind us of the “never say never” quote.
