Hidden Gems : The Other Two – Tasty Fish

Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Daily Motion, Soundcloud or another site. These posts are for the music only.

Today I’ve chosen the band called The Other Two, who just missed out on the Top 40 with this single reaching, you guessed it number forty-one. This band was formed by Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert (husband and wife team) both from New Order. It was a project they did in response to Barney’s Electronic and Hooky’s Revenge outlets. Unfortunately for them the single came out just as Factory records went into a financial crisis, so getting stock into the shops was hampered. It was taken for the highly recommended album ‘The Other Two And You‘ which came out in 1991. Off this album was the equally good ‘Selfish‘ track. They did release a follow-up album in 1999 called ‘Super Highways‘ but this was inferior to it.

So should it have been a hit or a miss?
