World Of Twist are a deeply revered, respected band and one of the greatest lost bands from Manchester. Genius is a moniker often given too easily but in World Of Twist s case, not nearly enough. They cut through the hazy end of Madchester with a suaveness, a wit and an knowingness showcased by their collection of psychedeliic, soulful, madcap indie pop. It set them apart from anything else at the time a Roxy Music for the space age as Louder Than War put it. 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.

It is at heart, and unashamedly so, a POP album, but has so many influences it's impossible to list them all.
The fact the band never pushed on from this album is a genuine tragedy, and was due to a number of factors. But in my eyes this is probably my favourite album of my lifetime.
I'm not sure if the album has been re mastered or not, but to my ears it does seem to have gained a fuller sound.
The second disc on this expanded version is excellent, particularly the Blackpool Tower suite which contains the best version of The Storm, and the radio sessions.
A band with so much promise, yet circumstance and time conspired against them. Sadly the definitive collection of World of Twist's meagre and cruelly terminated output.
All round, a lovely and sadly obscure album.
