The Cribs – Sucked Sweet

Keep up to date with THE CRIBS


If there was ever a band for rarities, The Cribs are it. ‘Sucked Sweet’ may be a lost single, but it is as quintessential as ever.

Guitar riff and immersive bass combine in nostalgic fashion, instantly recognisable but refreshing at the same time. It comes with an MTV inspired video directed by Josh McCartney, with a cute cameo from mother Crib, Joan Jarman.

Bearing the typical, lo-fi edge its Night Network contemporaries, it is a wonder to think that ‘Sucked Sweet’ was omitted from the album in the first place. Originally supposed to be the 13th track, vinyl running times meant the early penned track had to be dropped.

In spite of the above, ‘Sucked Sweet’ has found a second life in the form of the Sonic Blew Singles Club, a forward thinking, creative series of singles releases. Forever embodying the sprit of DIY, the Wakefield formed trio have given the track a fairytale ending.

The Cribs are forever!
