Quick Step & Side Kick is the third studio album by the British synthpop group Thompson Twins. It was released in February 1983, and was their first album to be released as a trio (the band consisted of up to seven members during previous releases). The album reached no. 2 on the UK Albums Chart and was later certified Platinum by the BPI. In the United States and Canada, the album was titled simply as Side Kicks, and was only the second Thompson Twins album to be released there.
Future Thompson Twins member Alannah Currie (born 20 September 1957, Auckland, New Zealand) lived in another squat in the same street - which is how she met Bailey. It was in this ramshackle and run-down house that they found an illegal way of "borrowing" electricity from the house next door. The band broke into the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100 chart at the beginning of 1983 with "Lies" and "Love On Your Side", which became the band's first UK Top 10 single. They then released their third album, Quick Step and Side Kick (called simply Side Kicks in the US)., which peaked at number 2 in the UK and was later certified platinum.
This was the breakout album which represented a new direction for the fledgling band Thompson Twins, who already had two albums in the UK under their belts and seemed to be finally coming into their own in the United States. When they had a surprise hit with the throwaway track "In the Name of Love" off of their second album, "Set", they realized they were onto something. The track had been written by Tom Bailey, so they jettisoned four members of the formerly seven-piece outfit, leaving only Bailey, his girlfriend Alannah Currie, and Joe Leeway.
