Recipe : How to make a Marmalade Sun.

Making a Marmalade Sun is simple, providing you have all the right ingredients. It would be quite easy to put a little too much ‘Who’ influenced guitar mixed with too little ‘Beatles’ and end up with a mouldy sun and that just wouldn’t do.

So let’s start with a step by step guide.

1) Firstly, you’ll need to source a ‘Fools Club’. This is easer said than done as they only ripen in the early 90’s. If you do manage to find one, you’ll find it rich in grunge influenced Sheffieldy goodness.

2) From the ‘Fools Club’ you can extract two main ingredients a ‘Rob Cohen’ and ‘Paul Young’. These two work really well together. A bit like cheese and onion. This is where the lyrics and harmonies are processed.

3) Don’t chuck the rest away however, as The Pigott’s and Hughes are considered delicacies and highly treasured.

4) ‘Max Smith’ the root of the sun. You can find really good quality Max’s from Chesterfield Market, ask for a ‘Cartoon Planet’ and you receive excellent Marr/Townsend qualities. You can extract it from there.

5) It’s vitally important you get this right as a Max is the tunesmith and brings structure and helps set the sun. Stopping it from becoming a flan.

'People often confuse 'Max Smith' with apple or citrus. The real key is find the citrus variety, this makes excellent marmalade. Although the apple variety has had moderate success too. Ask his Granny.

6) The last step is to beat it all together. Get this bit wrong and all sorts of wrongness can happen and we should know!

7) So you’ll need a ‘Ben Thornycroft’. The best way to do this is to shop around and find a powerquirk, a bit like a cumquat, but more poppy. Squeeze the BPM from the powerquirk and you’ll find an excellent Clash/Wonder Stuff beater, vital to making a mouth watering ‘Marmalade Sun’

8) Done.
