Limited vinyl LP repressing. Originally released in 1980, Compass Kum'pas was the debut album by the Liverpool duo consisting of Alan Gill and Dave Hughes. Also known as Dalek I Love You, their name was a fusion of the Daleks (famous Doctor Who villains) and the name Darling, I Love You which was an early idea for the band's name by Alan Gill. The early incarnations of the band featured David Balfe (later in the Teardrop Explodes) and Andy McCluskey (later to form Ochestral Manoeuvres in the Dark). The LP was critically acclaimed but unfortunately flew under the radar in terms of revenue generation. The LP is a synergistic cross between the stylings of early OMD synthpop, minimalist post-punk guitar, and a likeness to the piecemeal song structure of Van Dyke Parks.
