When you peel back the layers of musical obscurity there are invariably a number of contenders that, by all rights, should have registered more prominently on the scene than lady fate decreed. Take Candy for instance, a glittering four piece LA based glam rock band who, at the time, made their mark under the commercial radar yet spawned numerous off shoots including Kill For Thrills, Electric Angels and, not least, Guns 'N' Roses. Named in honour of the period 1960s novel and movie, Candy's modus operandi from the get-go was to fuse glam rock with pop. Citing influences as diverse as the Sweet, Kiss, Slade, Generation X, Ramones and the Monkees the band worked the LA rock scene like men possessed. They even received a helping hand from Runaways svengali Kim Fowley before hooking up with Kiss's management company. Signing a record deal with the powerful PolyGram operation, the band's debut, and only, album was recorded in Criteria Studio in Miami with producer Jimmy Ienner (the Raspberries, Bay City Rollers) and set out an impressive stall consisting of a flamboyant mixture of power pop and glam rock. Issued in 1985, the album sold not a jot at the time, yet has subsequently become an in demand item amongst aficionados of the 80s LA scene and not without good reason.
