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.
Today I’ve chosen a band, The Bolshoi, whom I saw many times in the 80’s – quite a few times at the legendary Marquee (now sadly a Wetherspoons) on Charing Cross Road. Led by the charismatic Trevor Tanner (now solo). Signed to Beggars Banquet label they released three solid albums, each growing from the previous. This track ‘Away‘ was issued twice and just failed to break into the the Top 40 on each occasion. For strange reason they were very big in Bolivia.
So should it have been a hit or a miss?
