Sweet - Blockbuster - Top Of The Pops 25.01.1973 (OFFICIAL)

Priest had previously played with mid-'60s band the Countdowns who had been produced and recorded by Joe Meek. Frank Torpey was again recruited to play guitar.

The quartet made its public debut at the Pavilion in Hemel Hempstead on 9 March and soon developed a following on the pub circuit, which led to a contract with Fontana Records.

At the time, another UK band released a single under the same name Sweetshop, so the band abbreviated their moniker to The Sweet.

The band was managed by Paul Nicholas , who later went on to star in Hair. Nicholas worked with record producer Phil Wainman at Mellin Music Publishing and recommended the band to him.

Their debut single "Slow Motion" July , produced by Wainman, and released on Fontana, failed to chart and owing to its rarity now sells for several hundred pounds when auctioned.

Sweet were released from the recording contract and Frank Torpey left. In his autobiography Are You Ready Steve , Priest said that Gordon Fairminer was approached to play for them when Torpey decided to leave Sweet after a gig at Playhouse Theatre Walton-on-Thames on 5 July but turned the job down as he wanted to concentrate on other interests.

Guitarist Mick Stewart joined in In late , that band became The Phil Wainman Set when the future Sweet producer joined on drums and the group cut some singles with Errol Dixon.

Stewart then quit, and was not replaced for some time. Connolly and Tucker had a chance meeting with Wainman, who was now producing, and knew of two aspiring songwriters, Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman , who were looking for a group to sing over some demos they had written together.

The latter began offering the track to various recording companies. The band held auditions for a replacement guitarist and settled on Welsh-born Andy Scott.

He also appeared on the band's lone album release, Expansions on Life , and on some recordings by the Scaffold. The band rehearsed for a number of weeks before Scott made his live debut with Sweet on 26 September at the Windsor Ballroom in Redcar.

The Sweet initially attempted to combine diverse musical influences, including the Monkees and s bubblegum pop groups such as the Archies, with more heavy rock-oriented groups such as the Who.

The Sweet adopted the rich vocal harmony style of the Hollies , with distorted guitars and a heavy rhythm section. This fusion of pop and hard rock would remain a central trademark of Sweet's music and prefigured the glam metal of a few years later.

The Sweet's initial album appearance was on the budget label Music for Pleasure as part of a compilation called Gimme Dat Ding , released in December The Sweet side consisted of the A- and B-sides of the band's three Parlophone singles.

Andy Scott appears in the album cover shot, even though he did not play on any of the recordings. A management deal was signed with the aforementioned songwriting team of Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman.

Phil Wainman resumed his collaboration with Sweet, as executive producer. This management deal also included a worldwide the U.

In March RCA issued "Funny Funny", written by Chinn and Chapman, which became the group's first international hit, climbing to the Top 20 on many of the world's charts.

It was not a serious contender on the charts. Their albums' failure to match the success of their singles was a problem that would plague the band throughout their career.

Billboard Hot after a re-issue in , thus becoming the group's biggest American hit. Although "Wig-Wam Bam" remained largely true to the style of the Sweet's previous recordings, the vocals and guitars had a harder, more rock-oriented sound, largely because it was the first Chinn-Chapman single on which only members of Sweet played the instruments.

In January " Block Buster! To promote their singles, the Sweet made numerous appearances on U. In one performance of "Block Buster!

Rex , Queen , Slade , and Wizzard for outrageous stage clothing. Despite the Sweet's success, the relationship with their management was becoming increasingly tense.

While they had developed a large fan-base among teenagers, the Sweet were not happy with their ' bubblegum ' image.

The Sweet had always composed their own heavy-rock songs on the B-sides of their singles to contrast with the bubblegum A-sides which were composed by Chinn and Chapman.

During this time, Sweet's live performances consisted of B-sides, album tracks, and various medleys of rock and roll classics; they avoided older 'novelty' hits like "Funny Funny" and "Poppa Joe".

A performance at the Palace Theatre and Grand Hall in Kilmarnock ended in the Sweet being bottled off stage; the disorder was attributed by some including Steve Priest to the Sweet's lipstick and eye-shadow look, and by others to the audience being unfamiliar with the concert set the CD release Live at the Rainbow documents a live show from this period.

The incident would be immortalised in the hit " The Ballroom Blitz " September At the end of , the band's name evolved from "The Sweet" to "Sweet".

The change would be reflected in all of their releases from onward. By , Sweet had grown tired of the management team of Chinn and Chapman, who wrote the group's major hits and cultivated the band's glam rock image.

Sweet's technical proficiency was demonstrated for the first time on self-penned hard rock tracks such as "Sweet F.

Sweet also adopted a more conventional hard rock sound and appearance. Sweet Fanny Adams also featured compressed high-pitched backing vocal harmonies , which was a trend that continued on all of Sweet's albums.

His throat was badly injured and his ability to sing severely limited. The band did not publicise the incident and told the press that subsequent cancelled shows were due to Connolly having a throat infection.

However, Connolly's badly bruised throat kept them from fulfilling the role. Sweet had frequently cited the Who as being one of their main influences and played a medley of their tracks in their live set for many years.

Their third album, Desolation Boulevard , was released later in , six months after Sweet Fanny Adams. By that stage, producer Phil Wainman had moved on and the album was produced by Mike Chapman.

It was recorded in a mere six days and featured a rawer "live" sound. One track, " The Man with the Golden Arm ", written by Elmer Bernstein and Sylvia Fine for the Frank Sinatra movie of the same name, featured drummer Mick Tucker performing an 8 and half minute solo although this was not included in the U.

This had been a staple of the band's live performance for years. The album also featured a group composition, "Fox On The Run", which was to be re-recorded months later.

The U. Side One of the album contained all Chapman-Chinn penned songs, while Side Two featured songs written and produced by Sweet.

In Sweet went back into the studio to re-arrange and record a more pop-oriented version of the track " Fox on the Run ". Sweet's first self-written and produced single, "Fox on the Run" was released worldwide in March and became their biggest selling hit, reaching number one in Germany, Denmark, and South Africa , number two in the United Kingdom, Ireland , Norway and the Netherlands and number three in Austria and Switzerland.

In Australia it not only made it to the top of the charts, it also became the biggest selling single of that year. The release of this track marked the end of the formal Chinn-Chapman working relationship and the band stressed it was now fully self-sufficient as writers and producers.

The following single release, " Action " July , peaked at number 15 in the UK. Now confident in their own songwriting and production abilities, Sweet spent the latter half of in Musicland Studios in Munich , Germany, where they recorded the Give Us A Wink album with German sound engineer Reinhold Mack , who later recorded with Electric Light Orchestra and co-produced Queen.

The new album release was deferred until so as not to stifle the chart success Desolation Boulevard was enjoying, peaking at number 25 in the US and number 5 in Canada.

It contained one live disc, recorded in London in December , and one disc compiling previously released single tracks plus an unused track by Chinn and Chapman — "I Wanna Be Committed".

Tucker played drums on both tracks. Sweet's first album to be fully produced and written by themselves, Give Us A Wink , was released in March By this time, Sweet strove to build on their growing popularity in America with a schedule of more than fifty headline concert dates.

The US tour was not financially successful, with small audiences at many venues leading to the final half-dozen or so dates to be cancelled.

Following the end of the tour, the band went on to Scandinavia and Germany. The band also spent a week at the Who 's Ramport Studios in Battersea demoing material for a new album before abandoning that project and playing eight dates in Japan.

By the end of the Japanese shows Connolly's extremely hoarse singing voice was manifest evidence of the demands of constant touring and the enduring after-effects of his assault.

Between October and January , Sweet wrote and recorded new material at Kingsway Recorders and Audio International London studios for their next album.

A new album, Off the Record , was released in April. The next single from the album, "Fever of Love", represented the band heading in a somewhat more Europop hard rock direction, once again charting in Germany, [5] Austria and Sweden, while reaching number 10 in South Africa.

The band cancelled a US tour with emerging US rockers Aerosmith , did not play any live dates in support of the album and, in fact, did not play a single concert for the whole of Sweet left RCA in and signed a new deal with Polydor though it would not come into force until later in the year.

In the United States, Canada and Japan Capitol had issued Sweet's albums since and would continue to do so through The first Polydor album, Level Headed January , found Sweet experimenting by combining rock and classical sounds " a-la clavesin ", an approach similar to Electric Light Orchestra 's, and featured the single " Love Is Like Oxygen ".

The ballad, "Lettres D'Amour", featured a duet between Connolly and Stevie Lange who would emerge as lead singer with the group Night in With the addition of session and touring musicians keyboardist Gary Moberley and guitarist Nico Ramsden, Sweet undertook a short European and Scandinavian tour followed by a single British concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon on 24 February One more single from the album, "California Nights" May , featuring Steve Priest as the lead vocalist, peaked at number 23 on the German charts.

The tour included a disastrous date in Birmingham, Alabama on 3 May, during which visiting Capitol Records executives in the audience saw Brian Connolly give a drunken and incoherent performance that terminated early in the set with his collapse on stage, leaving the rest of the group to play on without him.

The band returned briefly to Britain before resuming the second leg of their US tour in late May supporting other acts, including Foghat and Alice Cooper.

Concluding the US tour in early July , Brian's alcoholism and estrangement from the group was steadily becoming a greater issue.

Due to tensions between various members attributed to Connolly's health and diminishing status with the group, his long-time friend and fellow founding member, Mick Tucker, was tasked to produce Connolly's vocals.

It was felt Tucker would extract a better performance than Scott from Connolly. A number of tracks were recorded featuring Connolly.

However, these efforts were deemed unsatisfactory and Brian left the band on 2 November Publicly, Connolly was said to be pursuing a solo career with an interest in recording country rock.

Sweet continued as a trio with Priest assuming the lion's share of lead vocals, though Scott and Tucker were also active in that role.

The first single release for the trio was "Call Me". Guest keyboard player Gary Moberley continued to augment the group on stage.

Tragedy befell Mick Tucker when his wife Pauline drowned in the bath at their home on 26 December The band withdrew from live work for all of One more studio album, Identity Crisis , was recorded during —81 but was only released in West Germany and Mexico.

Sweet undertook a short tour of the UK and performed their last live show at Glasgow University on 20 March Steve Priest then returned to the United States, where he had been living since late When Polydor released Identity Crisis in October , the original Sweet had been disbanded for almost a year.

The band performed at the Marquee Club in London in February , with the shows recorded and gaining release a few years later, bolstered by four new studio tracks including a cover of the Motown standard " Reach Out I'll Be There ".

This line-up also toured Australian and New Zealand pubs and clubs for more than three months in and for a similar period again in Singer Paul Mario Day ended up marrying the band's Australian tour guide and relocating downunder.

He continued with Sweet commuting back and forth to Europe for the group's tours until this proved to be too cumbersome. He departed in late As McNulty moved into the front man spot, Jeff Brown came in to take over bass early in Lanzon too went back and forth between Sweet and Uriah Heep during before Heep's schedule grew too busy.

Tucker departed after a show in Lochau , Austria , on 5 May He later was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia. They recorded an album during this period, simply titled A.

Before the band embarked on the supporting tour for A in , Bodo left and Bisland returned as permanent percussionist.

Scott changed the band's name to 'Andy Scott's Sweet' after Tucker's departure but truncated it to simply 'The Sweet' once again after Tucker's death in Mal McNulty , now lead vocalist, departed in , though he would return briefly that year to fill in for Jeff Brown on bass as he would again in as lead singer for a few dates while Rocky Newton subbed on bass.

Sweet's former keyboard men Gary Moberley and Ian Gibbons also did fill-in jaunts with the group that year, as did Chris Goulstone. Chad Brown ex- Lionheart ; no relation to Jeff was the new front man.

Glitz Blitz and Hitz , a new studio album of re-recorded Sweet hits, was released during this period. In Mann left to take a job in television and Gibbons came back for a short time before Steve Grant ex- The Animals became the permanent keyboardist.

When Chad Brown quit in after developing a throat infection, Jeff Brown assumed lead vocals and bass duties. After this, the band was stable again for the next five years.

The mids would bring further confusing shake-ups and rotations. Ian Gibbons came back for a third stint as fill-in keyboardist in June for a gig in the Faroe Islands.

O'Hora decided to split to take a teaching job in late Tony Mills ex- Shy was slated to be Sweet's new singer in early but failed to work out and left after six shows in Denmark.

The line-up then consisted of Scott, Bisland, Grant and Lincoln. March saw the U. In the group played in Germany, Belgium, Austria and Italy.

The tour was called the 'Sweet Fanny Adams Tour'. In March and April , Scott was absent from a couple of gigs due to ill health and Martin Mickels stood in.

Scott revealed later that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and was treated at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. After a course of treatment and rest, he was back to full touring fitness.

In the band played at venues in Europe and back at Bilston in October. Also in , Tony O'Hora came back to the group, this time as keyboardist, after Grant departed.

In March the band released a new album New York Connection. Recorded in England, it comprised 11 cover versions, including the single "Join Together" and one revamped original recording; the B-side "New York Connection".

Shows in Perth , Adelaide , Hobart , Geelong , Melbourne and Sydney featured tracks from the new album for the first time.

In June it was revealed that the band were going on an extensive tour of the UK in late and that this tour would probably be their last.

For the summer tour dates, Paul Manzi returned to sub for Peter Lincoln who left this online message to the fans: "There have been a few rumours going around this weekend, so.
