Hidden Gems : Floy Joy – Operator

Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits or as from today excellent album tracks). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Soundcloud or other sites. These posts are for the music only.

Today I have chosen the jazzy influenced Floy Joy, a superb Sheffield band that appeared at the during the mid 80’s. Their debut album ‘Into The Hot‘ produced by Don Was was a masterpiece; go hunt it down. I picked this today for a reason as I was thinking about I saw them perform live which was at The Wag Club, Soho in London. There I met and chatted for several hours with Joe Strummer, who died ten years ago today. I must admit at first I was in awe of him, but by the fourth or fifth drink, it was as if I’d known him for years. We talked about Floy Joy’s singer Caroll Thompson‘s exceptional voice, she did join us for a short while. I know we chatted about other similar artists of which I truly can’t remember who they were. All I can say the gig finished around midnight and we were still there at around 4am in this now long since gone club.

So should this have been a hit or a miss?
