  • What a Bunch of Sweeties is a 1972 album by the UK underground group Pink Fairies. Twink had left the band before the recording of this album. Former The Move guitarist Trevor Burton occasionally joined the band for gigs and contributes to a couple of tracks, otherwise the band is the same line up stranded in San Francisco as The Deviants in '69 following the loss of vocalist Mick Farren. The sleeve came in a gatefold cover by Edward Barker, the front showing a box full of goodies mostly taken from roadie Boss Goodman's personal collection of underground badges etc., the inner gatefold a cartoon strip. The lyrics for "Pigs Of Uranus" are taken from a Gilbert Shelton comic strip Wonder Warthog versus the Pigs from Uranus. "Walk Don't Run" is a cover of The Ventures song, and there's a cover version of The Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There". "Marilyn" features a drum solo. A single from the album "I Saw Her Standing There/Pigs Of Uranus" was released in Germany with a pic sleeve of an earlier version of the group. Before its release guitarist Paul Rudolph left the band and was briefly replaced by Mick Wayne (ex Junior's Eyes) for an unsuccessful tour and a single "Well Well Well/Hold On" and also a Radio 1 session. Rudolph's departure was generally viewed as a disaster brought about by disparate drug habits & visa problems but the trio reunited in 2009 to re-record "Do It!" from their first single for the Boss Goodman tribute CD "Portobello Shuffle" (en)
