Best Thing / Without Wings
The Boutique Label presents the first ever reissues by cult Manchester band Grow Up, active between 1978 and 1981 and a core group on the highly collectible Object Music label. Grow Up were formed in late 1978 by John Bisset-Smith, youthful guitarist with Spherical Objects and an early member of the Manchester Musicians' Collective. Best described as an experimental pop quintet, Grow Up debuted with the six song EP Stay Awake in April 1979, and followed this with debut album the Best Thing in 1980. Early champion Paul Morley (NME) wrote: 'Grow Up's LP is not only extremely commercial, it's a record of mellow, sublime magic that extends the terse sound of the EP to a brilliant, luxurious level.
