It was also a worldwide success, reaching number one in New Zealand, and the top ten in Australia and several countries in Europe. The song " Silent Night ", originally released as a double A-side single with "Cat Among the Pigeons", was included on the expanded edition, as well as B-sides and remixes from the five singles that were released from the album. All the songs were written by Nicky Graham and Bros' manager Planescape - Tangent Plane - Among Grey Masks Watkinswith Graham composing the music and Watkins writing the lyrics.
The pair used the pseudonym "The Brothers" in order to imply that the songs had been written by the Goss twins, and that the group was not simply a manufactured pop outfit.
In his autobiography Watkins described how Deja Que Te Coja la Mano - Bruno Lomas - ÉXitos De Dos En Dos,Sus Mejores Singles 1968-1975 had deliberately come up with song titles and lyrics that the teen market could identify with, such as " Drop the Boy " being about a youth asking to be treated as an adult.
One of the album's more serious lyrical subjects was the closing ballad "Cat Among the Pigeons", which Watkins stated was about a friend who had struggled to cope with the early death of their father, and as a result had embarked on tempestuous and doomed relationships. When he and Graham decided to give the song to Bros to record, Watkins toned down the lyrics and removed the references to homosexuality. Graham composed the music using some basic equipment at his home in Wimbledon in south-west London, before taking the songs to his Hot Nights studio a short distance away in Fulham.
There he played all the instruments and programmed all the keyboards, before inviting the group to the studio to learn their parts and record Matt Goss' vocals. Talking to Smash Hits in AprilMatt Goss explained why the album was titled Push : "Well, when I Owe You Nothing - Bros - Push were in the studio recording it, if one of us was really, like, going for it we'd say, 'Right man, that's really pushing it.
We'd all be going, 'Is that pushing it? Yeah, that's push. Reviews of Push in the UK music press were mixed. In Melody Maker Jonh Wilde described the album as "ten songs that are entirely modern in an entirely charmless way", and called it "sad and useless" and "mediocrity's snowy mountain-top". In the UK Albums ChartPush was kept off the number one spot by the compilation album Now 11 for two weeks, and then by Tracy Chapman 's self-titled album for a week, although Push went on to sell more copies I Owe You Nothing - Bros - Push both albums in and ranked as the fourth best-selling album for that year in the UK.
