The Sweet epitomised the UK 70s Glam Rock movement with their trademark glitter and glam make-up. The Sweet were also a force to be reckoned with in pure rock music terms too. The Hits stand the test of time and the current line-up with original guitarist Andy Scott still keep the audiences shouting for more!
Andy Scott/Elastic Band
The Elastic Band rose phoenix-like from the ashes of The Silverstone Set. As mentioned elsewhere, the night they
played support for The Jimi Hendrix Experience in Manchester was a life changing moment for Andy and Ted Yeadon.
In May 1967, The Silverstone Set were booked for a tour of Portugal but due to the fact that the band had already
split, this effectively provided The Elastic Band’s debut. Whatever was lacking in rehearsals was certainly
camouflaged by enthusiasm. They were finally on their way. Everything stepped up a level. They were gigging constantly
all over the UK, TV appearances and a record deal! There is much archive material from this period – enjoy.
