REWIND: Salad - 'Drink The Elixir'

Some of you readers may be wondering why every single 'REWIND' track has been from the mid 90's of late... This is because it is 'Britpop Month' on God Is In The TV, which is continuing until the end of the month. In April 1995 I purchased an issue of Smash Hits magazine which came with a free cassette tape entitled 'Smashing Hits'. As well as featuring the brilliant Dodgy (and horrible rubbish like Let Loose and the Lighthouse Family) it contained this song from British group Salad, which reached the dizzy heights of number 66 in the UK singles chart. Their album 'Drink Me' fared better, managing a Number 16 position. I know absolutely nothing else about this lot except for the fact that Charley Stone (later of Gay Dad) joined the band as a live guitarist, keyboard player and backing vocalist for a while in 1996.
