What a great record this is ! Full of catchy melodies and singalongs. Very poppy powerpop. Clive Culbertson is a highly gifted songwriter and is very well known for his solo track "Time to kill". They also released a 7" under the name "No Sweat" on the northern irish label "Rip Off". A retrospective of "The Sweat" and "Clive Culbertson" is now available on CD at the japanese label "1977 Records".

Candy Apple were three Jersey girls who skipped a lot of school and learned to play on the fly, but that didn't stop them rockin' out all over the NYC scene through their 5-year career.They recorded a heap of material over the years but only this was made it to vinyl.

One of these great local compilation like "Sent from Coventry" or "Avon calling" with a lot of unknown bands. I can't really locate where this record came from. The label is from West Sussex and it was recorded in Eastbourne.

Side b: Why should it be mine
After "Menace" split up at the end of 1978, the last remaining members start "The Aces". The title track is a brilliant song. They also had recorded another single as "Vermillion & The Aces" with an american girl on vox.
Side a: The city beat
Side b: It's no use (Young ones)
Third and final single. Okay rockin' powerpop with the attitude to be a big rock act. Million miles away from their first great single "Nervous Breakdown".
