Candy Flip were a British electronic dance band associated with the Stoke on Trent music scene in the early 1990s. They are best remembered for their cover version of The Beatles hit "Strawberry Fields Forever", which was a No. 3 hit in the UK Singles Chart. As of June, 2019 Danny Spencer aka Danny Makanik collaborated with singer/songwriter Mc Citrine (representing Atlanta Georgia) on a House track called Trippin in the Park soon to be released on WORKROOM Records.
In 1991, Candy Flip released their first album, Madstock. The Continuing Adventures of Bubble Car Fish, which combined rave beats with synth pop strongly influenced by bands such as the Pet Shop Boys and The Beloved. A further single 'This Can Be Real' fared well on the charts, reaching the UK Top 60. The band were criticized for jumping on the Madchester bandwagon and were treated by the press as a one-hit wonder. Candy Flip split up in 1992 after the English rave and baggy scene faded into history.

Not so for Candyflip. This is their one and only album but it is quite solid throughout with a mild, dreamy sound. In particular, "Love Is Life," "Red Hills Road (the big hit)," are great songs - also strong are "Madstock," "Ask Why," and "Theme. Their cover of the Beatles "Strawberry Fields Forever" is interesting but does not break new ground - however, it does fit within the overall sound of the album. 6 people found this helpful.
