DISCO PISTOL - latest update 22nd OCTOBER 2003
DISCO PISTOL - "an explosion of tiaras, glitter, radioactive pink dresses and restless egos. Crawling from the wreckage of North London's fanzine Underworld unscathed and armed with tunes of sizzling brilliance. Disco Pistol are a five-piece of frightening confidence, formidable ambition and incomparable energy, fronted by the freckle-faced Manga. New single Say Something is a brightly animated splash of teenage kicks, an urgent Teen-C declaration of intent - it sounds like a three-minute giggle, all sugary synths and a cortex-spinning chorus sharper than a shark's fin" NME single of the week review
BAND BIOG 
After all the excitement of the1997 ORG single, things went very quiet.  In total there was two singles - their first Super Sexy Revolutionary (on somewone elses label - can't remember who released it now) was followed by their Pink see-thru glitter vinyl 7" "Say Something/Solid Gold Radio" (re-issued in ice cool blue vinyl) - in a Melody Maker interview at the time, Manga, Hyper Helen and the boys stated "We want to be in all four corners of the globe making everybody as happy as we are. The Spice Girls are falling apart and we're waiting in the wings to take over.."  The press told us they were "an explosion of tiaras, glitter, radioactive pink dresses and restless egos. Crawling from the wreckage of North London's fanzine Underworld unscathed and armed with tunes of sizzling brilliance. Disco Pistol are a five-piece of frightening confidence, formidable ambition and incomparable energy, fronted by the freckle-faced Manga. New single Say Something is a brightly animated splash of teenage kicks, an urgent Teen-C declaration of intent - it sounds like a three-minute giggle, all sugary synths and a cortex-spinning chorus sharper than a shark's fin"

Then they  signed a major deal with Mercury Records and changed their name to SWEET 3 - Thanks a lot band - that's typical, their way of thanking labels like ORG for supporting them when no on else wanted to know. Labels like ORG do all the hard ground work thn the clueless majors want to pretend they've discovered something new so they order a repackage and mess it up (and couldn't care less). The major label tried to pass them off as a new band, destroyed all the possitive history and fan base and in doing so killed the band off. Why are major labels all so clueless (UK ones anyway), why do major labels almost always mess it up? Why do bands go along with them?.  Last I heard was that Manga was fronting a raw punk/pop band called Role Models and trying to get back to her  roots after the mess up of Sweet 3, Role Model sounded pretty good... that was summer 2001...
