Sugar Sugar cover?

Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

Sugar Sugar cover?

Postby tackhead » Sun Jun 13, 2004 3:50 pm

Does anyone remeber a cover of the Archies song Sugar Sugar? Late 80's (possibly early 90) and it sounded kinda like Sisters of Mercy"ish".

I used to hear it in the clubs and I never found out who sang it.

I know what song you are talking about but I never found out who sang it either. Does anyone know? Kinda Kon Kan meets Vicious Pink.

Probably not David Gamson since it's from the early 80's.. Dreadful sugary pop (no pun intended), it's hard to believe he played with Scritti Politti.

I think you may be thinking of an artist by the name of "TB Frank" There was a cd single released on the "Play it Again Sam" label from Belgium from back in the late 80's/early 90's. I have the single and remember buying it because I think the artist poss

Thanks so much for the info. I actually found it on Ebay thanks to you (although I've been outbid at the moment.)

Not sure I wanna drop $20+ on a single I remember digging back in days of strobe lights and mind altering substances. =
Is there any cha

I know that Dollar also covered it too.It's on one of their greatest hits comps that I have.Of all the NW versions of this song,which were not many, Dollar's version has to be the best,as it is still very Bubblegummy.Let's put it this way,they would give

TB Frank's is awesome. I think it is better than Dollar's version but that's just my opinion. It's definitely darker.
