the delaware boys

By all accounts sometime around the mid 80’s a young Alan Gubby, later to become head honcho of weird ear Radiophonic adoring crate digging imprint Buried Treasure, was to be found dipping his toes in the big shiny suits and big hair glitzy mirror ball world of synth dance soul with the Delaware Boys. Released on rent free records here’s ‘you always knew I’d feel that way’ – I’ll warn you now it’s a tad saccharine for our usual tastes around here, that said we’re not so snobbish as to not to pick up on the coolly grooved noir teased sophisticated vibes which unless I’m not very much mistaken have something of a sly nocturnal funk feel of Shalamar and Shakatak about their wares, 808 State heads might well be equally appealed.

words from the man himself……

‘Its actually a bit of a piss take, totally fictional – recorded around 1994 and part of a series of imaginary productions by Benson Fairlight, manager of The Corporation studios in The Delaware Road. Confusing I know but nature deplores a vacuum etc!’
