Ian Prowse & Amsterdam
Formed in 1999 by frontman Ian Prowse, Amsterdam struck up a friendship with Elvis Costello, which saw them playing as his band on the Jonathan Ross Show, supporting his live shows and eventually recording a duet of ‘Don’t Throw Your Love Away’, originally a hit by The Searchers.
Amsterdam saw some success with their first single ‘The Journey’ in early 2005, but it was their song ‘Does This Train Stop on Merseyside?’ later that year that cemented Ian’s place in the hearts of DJs, songwriters and music fans alike.
BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel was reduced to tears every time he put the single on, openly crying live on air because of its connection with Liverpool, the city he loved. Irish legend Christy Moore then took the song on in 2009, making it the centrepiece of his album 'Listen'
