Hidden Gems : Freur – Doot Doot

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.

I have to thank a Twitter poster who mentioned this and brought it back into my train of thought. Freur did actually become Underworld, you may or may not know this. Their label CBS Records did try hard to promote this band and originally they had no name just a symbol (see below). That was a marketing disaster to be honest as no-one knew what to call them until the name came into being. Sadly they didn’t light up the charts but leave us with a pretty good album in the shape same titled ‘Doot-Doot’. A follow-up album did emerge but wasn’t in the same class as their debut release.

So should this have been a hit or a miss?

    I have never heard the extended version. I remember this song but they didn’t really have much success afterwards – until they formed Underworld of course.

So what do you think then ....
