The Meeting 02:10


"Players Please Twist came together out of the ashes of Toy Watches and The Pinups. This band was massively fun to play in and watch live. We did a killer version of 'To Sir With Love'.

Noel and John wrote 'All These Things' as a tongue twister to test Tony and make it as difficult as possible for him to sing, and he nailed it every time." - John Mitting.

PPT supported INXS, The Church and many others as well getting frequent airplay on 4ZZZ.

The band never had an official release and these are the only songs ever recorded. Enjoy.
