    After recording a 12" of "Sunshine Smile" ("I'll Be Your Saint" and "Breathless" on the B-side) that was pressed up to be released on record producer Pat Collier's 'Money To Burn' record label, the band received a positive review in the NME. However, the single was never released. They signed to Creation Records in 1992, and after a UK tour supporting Curve, they released their first single, a re-recording of "Sunshine Smile", in April of that year.

    Adorable formed in September 1990. Prior to that the band was known as The Candy Thieves, and their only record included an early version of "Homeboy" and another song "Underwater" that fitted the then-current baggy trend. The single was released on Trolley Records in 1990. However guitarist Wayne Peters left the band out of frustration with their lack of success and was replaced by Robert Dillam, prompting the name change to Adorable.

    This British band was originally called The Candy Thieves. Against Perfection was the band's debut album and this track was NME's Single of the Week when it came out.

    Read about the "band you should have loved." Adorable were a band that should have been huge, but were hindered by their poor relationship with the powerful music press of the early 1990s.: http://www.isolationrecords.co.uk/adorableinterview.html
