INFO > 2wo Third3 were the best pop dance act you’ve never heard of. Managed by Tom Watkins (who also guided the careers of Pet Shop Boys, East 17, and Bros), the group consisted of Lee Thomas, Daniel Payne, Victor Scerri, and unseen songwriter Richard “Biff” Stannard (Biff was represented by a cartoon image on product and in videos). Lee’s distinctive voice and Biff’s catchy tunes distinguished 2wo Third3 from lesser dance units of the day, while design firm Form crafted the band’s stylish image and slick packaging. 2wo Third3 were active between 1994 and 1995, issuing only four singles during that period. “Hear Me Calling” was their debut release; tracks from both CD singles are consolidated here.

  1. Wow! Rarity indeed! Take me back to that time!
    Dunno why they didn’t make it big. Especially since Deuce had a string of Top 20s that same time! heh heh

  2. I just discovered these guys last month while browsing Discogs for Ramp remixes – sorry I missed them the first time around! I’d like to get a hold of their unreleased album, “Doppelganger.”

  3. 2wo Third3′ unreleased album, you say? With pleasure! I actually found this by accident while searching for The Grid’s album of the same title. It’s a little bit glitchy in the middle, but worth it: http://www.mediafire.com/?69oz8eu766u4vcm

  4. Thank you Alex! I owe you one for that!

  5. Alex, I have just wet myself!!! I’ve been trying to get hold of this album since, well 1995. Thank you for making my day.

  6. OMG been after this album 4ever!! link doesn’t – can anyone re-post
