Continuing my series of Hidden Gems where I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Daily Motion, Soundcloud or another site off the net. These posts are for the music only.
Now we come to one of my fave bands of the 80’s – The Wake, released their best music on Factory Records, formed by ex Altered Image’s Ceasar and originally included Bobby Gillespie on drums. I was lucky to see them quite a few times and were likened to New Order (female keyboard player too). So much so I remember vividly at Futurama 4 at Deeside Leisure Centre, everyone was excited as they thought headliners’ – New Order had come on stage early! This track ‘Talk About The Past‘ is a prime example of their work all re-issued on LTM records – go buy now!
So should it have been a hit or a miss?
