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.
