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 a reformed Martin Stephenson & The Daintees are currently performing their debut album ‘Boat To Bolivia‘ to rave reviews (see links below). So what an ideal band to promote in this series. Unlike former Kitchenware label mates The Kane Gang and Prefab Sprout, they didn’t get the success their accolades merited. You could pick a whole number of great tracks by them including ‘Wholly Humble Heart‘, ‘Coleen‘ and the marvellous ‘Nancy‘. This North East songwriter deserves to be spoken in the same light as Mark Knopfler and Sting for his contributions to music. Don’t just take my word go have a listen for yourself.
Reviews: Liverpool 2012 – Live Confidential and Subba-Culture. Get to see them soon! I was lucky enough to see them quite alot of times supporting or headlining some University gig. No matter the venue or the nature of the show Martin gave 100%.
So should this have been a hit or a miss?
