PS The Unreleased Demos

When CJ was bumped out of The Wildhearts back in 1994, he hooked up with another former ‘heart, Willie Dowling (also ex-The Grip and Catpeople) and formed Honeycrack.

Though not a million miles away from The Wildhearts musically, CJ’s love of sugary-pop melody and Willie’s more muso-orientated approach worked very nicely indeed, and their only proper studio album, ‘Prozaic’ still stands up today as a blinder of an album.

They were greeted like heroes at the infamous Phoenix ’95 festival (the year that a wandering Mark Keds forced The Wildies to cancel their headlining appearance at the last minute), and in 1996 they played the Donington Monsters Of Rock festival, on a bill that included Kiss, Ozzy and Korn.

Restless Willie couldn’t settle for long though, and he was soon off to form the
SugarPlumFairies and later The Celebrity Squares, while CJ became a Jelly before rejoining the reformed Wildhearts.
