TONIGHT were a UK pop band that got that elusive recording contract in 1977 and single handily created the now much used term "Power Pop". They had a manager who believed in the band to the extent he had sold his own property to finance the band and was determined to get them a deal with independent Target Records who created TDS Records specifically to market the band and its unique "Power Pop".

Things rapidly moved up a gear and they secured a BBC's Top Of The Pops appearance in front of then 14 million plus viewers. They were on top of their game and the single "Drummer Man" reached number 14 in UK Top 20 in January 1978.

The band then set about recording tracks for their debut album and follow up single "Money That's Your Problem" (Number 66 May 1978) then came the crunch-an internal struggle between management ,record label and distributor followed and it was demanded that the band enjoyed another Top 20 hit single before an album could be released.

The third single failed to chart-the band was in debt so in January 1979 they called it quits The tracks on this album have sat in the archives ever since and now they are remastered and released with the hit single "Drummer Man" being available on CD for the first time ever.
