Muze PNote Arranger: Sweet.
Muze PNote Sweet originally began as a pre-packaged pop outfit for the producers/songwriters Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. By combining the crunch of hard rock with the hooks of bubblegum pop, the pair provided Sweet with its first handful of mindlessly effective hits in the early glam soaked '70s, notably "Little Willy," "Blockbuster," "Wig Wam Bam," and "Ball Room Blitz." Underneath this teen-pop glitz however, a real rock and roll band was smoldering. Determined to make its own statement and get out from under the Chinn-Chapman control center, the band took a leap of faith and cut DESOLATION BOULEVARD completely on its own.
Muze PNote What is surprising is not so much the band's desire for independence but that Sweet succeeded on all fronts with this release. Keeping the power hooks intact, the band displays its own knack for songwriting. DESOLATION BOULEVARD contains the band's biggest single, "Fox on the Run," a telling rocker featuring the band's multi-octave vocals. The other highlight on the album is the softer "The 6-Teens," which harkens back to the band's pop formula with considerably more texture than the their earlier hits.

Engineer: Peter Coleman

Artist Overview

In the early 1970s, the Sweet were a massive UK pop success under the baton of the Chinn-Chapman writing/production team, but by '74 the band was pursuing a heavier rock sound and concentrating on its own compositions. In the process they became one of the key groups of the '70s British glam-rock scene. Their popularity waned by the end of the decade, but various members engaged in reunions in the '80s. When singer Brian Connolly died in 1997, though, it was truly the end of the Sweet era.
