Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits or excellent album tracks). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Soundcloud or other sites. These posts are for the music only. I was reminded of this band by PLB.
At the end of the 70’s it seemed every Merseyside act was trying to out do each with the silliest name. Many went on to be household names but alas Dalek I Love You, failed to really even get a slight whiff of success. Though during their time as a band fronted by Alan Gill, they had members of OMD and Teardrop Explodes in their ranks. Even with a name change to Dalek I, nothing could help them get decent daytime radio play. Essentially an electronic act they did produce a number a great songs including ‘Ambition‘, ‘Horrorscope‘, ‘Holiday In Disneyland‘ and ‘Africa Express‘. I could have chosen a couple others today as it was a close call with ‘Freedom Fighters‘ or ‘Destiny‘. I chose ‘Good Times’ as it was catchy and well produced yet at the same time still manic.
So should this have been a hit?
