    After TNT recorded their single 'Back on the Road / Rockin' the Night' vocalist Gary Owen was brought
    in as a replacement for Mark Smith. T.N.T set about writing a whole new batch of songs, they were
    heavier but still had a pop sensibility about them. As Curly says “I had grown up through the glam rock
    era, and like Gary Stevenson, was a huge SWEET fan, so that side of things was a big influence on both
    of us, plus, as a band we all had different musical influences, DEEP PURPLE. ALICE COOPER, THE BEATLES,
    BLACK SABBATH to name a few. And we all got off on the new stuff coming out as well, IRON MAIDEN, RAVEN,
    DEF LEPPARD, METALLICA and European stuff like the SCORPIONS and ACCEPT who had just broken internationally.

    So after recording the 'Desire and Lust' EP, we thought we really had something.” But trying to get any record
    company interest was really frustrating, other than Phonogram threatening to prosecute over the name. Tony
    Harnell’s, Norweigian T.N.T, had just scored an international deal so they wanted exclusive rights to the name.
    After failing to get any financial inducement from Phonogram, it was thought what with the new sound, it was
    probably now a good time to change the name anyway so T.N.T became SWEET CHEATER.
