What does it sound like?:
Who remembers Dalek I Love You, the experimental Liverpool electro band formed by Dave Balfe and Alan Gill?
Their second album, originally released in 1983, was reissued in expanded form back in 2007, and now, ten years later, that reissue is itself reissued.
Largely ignored at the time, the album has not aged too badly overall, particularly the longer songs like Sons Of Sahara and Africa Express, although there are some parts of the album where judicious use of the skip button is advised.
This reissue does a good job of rounding up the various B sides and remixes from the time though, although there are a few you won’t listen to more than once to be honest. There’s a decent booklet with the release with some intriguing liner notes.
What does it all *mean*?
A diverse album for sure, but maybe it tries a bit too hard to incorporate so many different influences and styles.
Goes well with…
Memories of long nights in dark clubs.
Might suit people who like…
Electro/dance of the eighties era.
