Ah, Boys Wonder. Never the same after Smeg started playing drums for them.... Actually it was Rory Lyons.

You're nearly a decade out though.... And they were utter shite of course.

Their look was meant to be Malcolm McDowell in Clockwork Orange but ended up being more Jim Dale in Carry on Doctor :(
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

That's the first time I've heard them, though I recall their interviews. I think Record Mirror or some sub-inkie was creaming their collective pants.

What I was really after was something by Lightning (or Lightnin') Strikes. Terrible stuff.

Chiefs of Relief anyone?

And I know they're far too early for Britpop, but this thread has turned into a list of shit Brit bands.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Their follow up band Corduroy were better. They did a fine jazz funk version of Motorhead!

Kandy Pop came out in 1996 so a bit past peak BritPop but still well within most people's parameters. There first releases came out in '95

And fantastic breath of fresh air it was too in that world of Cast, Space and mansun. I went to see them on the strength of it and was not disappointed, great live band, great song writers.

Social Dancing and Return to Central are two of my favourite LPs.

I imagine most people can't get past Manda Rin's vocals but I love them, but I loved Altered Images as well.

Also did the music for The Powerpuff Girls!

So probably big in Japan as well.

Blossom is my favourite.

Bear baiting & dog fights a speciality.

Bringing us full circle, I think Boys Wonder's guitarist was last seen playing with (Britpop progenitor) Lawrence's Go Kart Mozart... But I could be wrong.
