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 really digged The Blue Orchids when they emerged on the indie scene back in the early 80’s – Their album ‘Greatest Hit’ was a tongue in cheek title, as they didn’t have any hits unless you count the Indie chart. Along the lines of The Fall (considering one of them was originally in that band), but they were alot more melodic they also produced some brilliant tunes. They did a cool John Peel session too that included the selected track and also ‘A Year With No Head’, ‘No Looking Back’ and ‘Sun Connection’. Another cool single by them was ‘Agents Of Change‘. Check out Factory Star, Martin Bramah’s latest band.
