I’m now skipping forward to the late 80s, 1988 to be precise and a performance on Wired – one of Channel 4’s many attempts to repeat the success of The Tube. There are many many tracks I could have chosen from Martin Stephenson & The Daintees. If you are a big fan, as I am, then you could argue whether he is indeed ‘Lost In Time’, but for most people I fear he is lost in the ‘gap’ between the enduring critical acclaim for Prefab Sprout and the commercial success of Deacon Blue. However ‘Boat To Bolivia’ and “Gladsome, Humour and Blue’ are near perfect, timeless albums and last year’s California Star is also great.
‘Wholly Humble Heart’ is the closest the Daintees ever came to a hit.
