Quality Street, their only album, was released in 1991. It features the singles The Storm, the ecstatic cover of the Stones She’s A Rainbow, Sweets and the legendary Sons Of The Stage.
The band left a mark on many people who have achieved greatness - Jeremy Deller, one of the finest artists the UK has ever produced, included a “We Miss The World Of Twist” float in his work ‘Procession’ at the Manchester International Festival. Noel Gallagher nearly called Oasis Sons Of The Stage and Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye have covered that track in tribute to a band who influenced them so much. Noel even personally insisted that Jamie Fry, whose photographs grace the album artwork, was used for Oasis shoots.
STAFF COMMENTSAndy says: The ones that got away! Absolutely superb, psychedelic soul pop. They dared to be different.
Laura says: It was a case of bad timing for World Of Twist. Although their psychedelic pop was a perfect fit for Manchester at the time, they didn't have the scally / baggy look that the national media and music industry were honing in on and so were largely overlooked. A few years later and things could've been so much different.
