Blockbuster! by Dave Thompson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Between 1971 and 1975, The Sweet were invincible. Powered by a string of huge hit singles, the band dominated the UK charts, fighting every step of the way against their reputation as a pop group with a simultaneous string of records that are today recognised as hard rock classics. Blockbuster! is the first biography to explore the beautiful dichotomy of The Sweet, still one of the best-loved bands of their age. It is a journey back to the spangled age of Glam Rock, when men were men and women were often men in disguise - accompanied by the most outrageous band of all.
