Candy Flip – Redhills Road

How about this for a period piece from the Madchester era? The year was 1991 when colloquialisms like Candy Flip probably meant a lot to much of the youth of the day (look it up). Hedonism was not confined to northern Britain but it was defined there in clubs like the Hacienda. Candy Flip only existed for a short period and put out just one album ‘Madstock’ which contained their megahit, an acid tinged version of the Beatles ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, as well as this wonderful pop tune ‘Redhills Road’ which also encroached on the mainstream charts. If you can see past the of its time sound you’ll be rewarded with a fine chorus and all round happy demeanour. KD
