Guy Dalton hails from Liverpool. In 1981 he auditioned for a band that was being produced by David Graves. The band rejected him because he wasn't tall enough! Graves heard his potential and decided to record him anyway. Their first recording was Night People, a New York club mix (currently available on Back To Mine by Royksopp on the DMC label) and an 8 minute extended dance mix which was available on Mach I records in the UK and Metrovynil in Germany. This first release was only available as a 12" vinyl single and although it received extensive airplay (radio Luxembourg power play etc) and critical acclaim it suffered mediocre sales.
The next single was a cover of Limmie and The Family Cookin's "You Can Do Magic" B/W Like The Wind, strangely it was this "B" side that got the airplay, becoming record of the week on Liverpool's Radio City and many other independent commercial stations. Sadly a long strike at the distributors killed any chance of sales. As far as this writer is aware Guy didn't record again preferring to perform in the working men's clubs as part of a showband, he was also a talented impressionist.
It has been suggested that maybe all four tracks should be released as an EP possibly via the Internet if enough interest can be generated. -- David Graves (Producer/Writer)
