Song of the day: The Candy Strypers – "Dance On"

I recently received what is possibly the most mysterious band-related email I’ve ever received. It came from one “Paul Hughes”, and the contents consisted entirely of this:

http://soundcloud.com/the-candy-strypers

No blurb, no photos, no “we’re fantastic and you gotta hear us!”, no nothing. Just that link.

“Alright,” I thought to myself, “I’m game.”

So off I went, and was pleasantly non-disappointed…

The Candy Strypers¡contenidos caliente! (2012)

It turns out that Paul (Hi, Paul!) is from England (i.e., The Land of Engs) and is basically The Candy Strypers.

By the way, when looking for links to the band I found another band called The Candy Stypers. They’re from Texas, and describe their music as “Afro-beat / Chinese pop / Rap”. Well, why not?

    Hello Peter. I was going thru your blog and just discovered The Candy Strypers and really like 'em a lot. I've downloaded the songs but the first one Dance On has reached it's limit. Could you (would you) post a link for it? I'd appreciate it. Thanks alot & love your blog.

    Thanks Peter. While I'm at it I'd like to thank you for some other things I've found besides The Candy Strypers – like Scott Goes For and Pop (Paul Steel). I can't stop listening to Impossibly You (is there a link for that?). I also love the live Slade song. Your favorite video (Sugar Water) is a trip! I'll have to watch it a few more times to try & figure it out. And the jelly bean video (Kina Grannis) is amazing especially the making of it. Thanks again. Tommy C (from VA.,USA)

    Hey, Tommy C:

    Thanks Peter.

    You're welcome.

    While I'm at it I'd like to thank you for some other things I've found besides The Candy Strypers – like Scott Goes For and Pop (Paul Steel). I can't stop listening to Impossibly You (is there a link for that?).

    As Perry Mason would say: “Why yes. Yes there is.”

    I also love the live Slade song.

    That Slade track makes me think of Robert Christau's comment: “I judge a good rock and roll 'encyclopedia' by whether or not Slade is included.”

    Your favorite video (Sugar Water) is a trip! I'll have to watch it a few more times to try & figure it out.

    Good luck. It messes with my mind in a big way.

    And the jelly bean video (Kina Grannis) is amazing especially the making of it.

    You're not wrong there. And now I feel like some jelly beans.

    Thanks again. Tommy C (from VA.,USA)

    No problem, Tommy. I'm extremely glad you're enjoying what you've found so far on the blog.

    Have fun exploring!
