Hidden Gems : Alternative Radio – Valley Of Evergreen

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 thought I’d highlight a record you could have picked up from most record shop bargain bins for as little as 10p for the extended version, which I have still. I really took to this as it merged electronic sounds with some indie guitars and rounded off with some superb acoustic guitar. Then again it reminded me of a fairground ride too, probably a good description of how it revolved around the song. I do not remember many other notable songs by Alternative Radio apart from the equally interesting track ‘First Night‘.

So should this have been a hit or a miss?

    This perfectly dovetails with my taste for clever indie-pop from the 80’s. Always nice to find a gem!

    I love this song. Had 12 inch version when released. Follow up was good too. Shame EMI dropped them they could have been big. Very stranglers I personally think but a good UK band. They wrote a musical too Tuppence to cross the Mersey that got good reviews.

So what do you think then ....
