Sweets


World Of Twist were the outliers of the Manchester scene and made some cracking records between 1990 and 1992. Sweets was a stab at a hit on the proper charts with a lyric written by Tony Ogden in a deliberate attempt to write an awful lyric- 'sweets are sweet but you are sweeter baby'. Actually it isn't that bad. I've heard worse. It wasn't a hit reaching number 58 in 1991. This version is from the 12" single, produced by The Grid, and is really rather sweet.

This is quite good. I only bought one single by this mob, Sons of The Stage but never delved any further but have seen them mentioned on a few places recently. Might need to listen to some more.

The album Quality Street and all the singles are all worth a pop.

Loved the band. The 12" of The Storm is a pure delight. The Fluke mixes of She's A Rainbow are also wonderful.
