Silver Missiles And Nightingales is the first and only album by the collaboration between Andy McCoy and Nasty Suicide (Jan Stenfors) of Hanoi Rocks under the moniker The Suicide Twins. The name of the album was originally supposed to be the title of Hanoi Rocks' 1984 album Two Steps From The Move, but the name was changed at the last minute.
When it was first released, Silver Missiles And Nightingales didn't fair too well, because acoustic rock wasn't "in" at the time, but the album's reception has since grown. The album is hailed as a great showcase of McCoy and Suicide's playing style and McCoy's writing talent. After the album's release, McCoy and Suicide (then known as Nasty Superstar) toured in Finland under the moniker "The Suicide Twins", until disbanding that same year (1986). Lead single 'Sweet Pretending' was sung by fellow former Hanoi Rocks member Rene Berg.
The song "The Best Is Yet to Come" was later covered by Samantha Fox.
