Discussion in 'Pop Toilet' started by Doodvid, Jul 20, 2013.
Stumbled across this my old Big Mix 96 CD. Got a nice Xenomania Mix too.
Oh dear, I have loads of cds of all this crap Including this one, a cover of Boy Krazy biggest hit, it made the Top75 in 99.
I was watching a few old Corries from 1999 recently () and shit like Toutes Les Filles and Stock/Aitken flop Louise-wannabe Kerri-Ann was all over the jukebox in the Rovers. And this is a whole 5 years before Anthony Cotton too.
Robbed (and the cheapness of the official video...?!)
Already my favourite song of 2015 so far. Kiss of death or what.
Such an unfortunate name for a pair of pubescent teen girls.
I stumbled across the promo CD for this from a massive skip in a recycle centre in Bristol where teachers could grab construction materials cheaply
Hadn't realised they'd done the original version of lesbian anthem 'Help! I'm A Fish' (poor girls never really stood a chance) In the UK it was released by a group called Little Trees and did quite well if I remember correctly.
What a post. And indeed, what a thread. There's enough in here to keep @aquaplex busy for the next decade...
Imagine if it turns out RB worked with OUR REET.
This is one of my favourite threads of all time.
I totally forgot about Mini Viva, what a shame they're nowhere to be found in my country's Spotify 2009 GAVE ME so much life with them farting BANGER after BANGER until they literally disappeared.
Aww I miss Doodvid.
Doodvid to return with a portrait of Kindacool please.
And it better include my BAR OF SOAP
I bought this on my lunch break back in the day and helped propel it to the giddy heights of #42, so near yet so far.
I don’t know if Moopy knows much of this group but one of them have been jailed for 8 months for dangerous driving.
Isn’t that one of Mini Viva?
I don't know if they ever tried outside Italy, but still counts.
Wikipedia tells me it is. She has since quit though, and they have a new member.
Also they now have one member in prison.
I do declare that ‘One Touch’ remains in my All Time Xenomania Top 5 to this very day. Glittering and spectacular to say the VERY least
LOVE them and their absolutely APPALLING English.
They did San Remo and came SECOND LAST as they were completely TUNELESS but the song is good:
Only EIGHT MONTHS for causing death by careless driving? Must try that one
This one's just for @Kalabaliken's ears
This song was quite a hit here. Unfortunately that was it, because even with those POWERFUL voices they killed each other right away. They couldn't find girls with tits big enough to replace them all
The leader of the group still releases some high quality covers from time to time. like this one
If we're going down the Spanish route there's this...
It was EVERYWHERE when I went to Gran Canaria one year! They tried to represent Spain at Eurovision with this but didn't quite make it...
I have their album which I haven't played for 15 years...
They look so fucking TRASHY!
And this, which I also discovered in Gran Canaria one year, though I think they are actually from Argentina...
God it's shit but I love it.
Yo quiero bailar was such a massive hit, I even have the single (when Spanish artists rarely released cd singles). They also broke up badly.
! God that looks REASSURINGLY EXPENSIVE
Be my LOVER be my VAVY
Never heard of F.A.N.S (from Argentina only Bandana, from Postars), but they name reminds me of a very popular girlband from the 80s-90s that was massive in all Latin America. Not exactly a failed girlband. @Pipo surely has to know them.
@Alla Flans were probably my first concert EVER and they were not a failed girlband
I love how ages later I discovered they were a shameless RIP OFF of Bananarama
OF COURSE they're not a failed girlband at all! I was just introducing them to Kala.
I can't think of a single succesful girlband from Spain, except for the odd one hit wonder. Kala probably knows this one because it was HUGE and still a classic that gets recurrent airplay. From 1989, this is good:
Las Ketchup say hi or are we not counting RUNAWAY smash hits Kusha Las Payas and Bloody Mary?
I'm afraid they also count as a one hit wonder, even here.
Even for a Popstars band this lot were pretty shit! (And of course I have the album)
But Roser who quit the show had a semi-better career. I was OBSESSED with her after hearing her song in a gay bar in Sitges (it's always the case for me)
TVE and the production behind Operación Triunfo are doing soon a reality in the style of Reborn in the USA (was that the name, the one with Sonia?) and there are rumours Roser will be in it. Of course I think it's just gay hysteria, because she's been rumoured in every preselection and everywhere.
Yeah it was always either her or Edurne every year (of course one came true), but Roser was even TOO BASIC for TVE, I think! And that sounds like an amazing show (it was Reborn in the USA) - I can just imagine some of the absolute CACK that would end up on the show!
The thing is they all know they're not going to have a career after this at all, I guess whoever does it it's just for the screetime. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Rosa here, because she's done basically every single reality she could do. Not that she ever had a proper music career
Is Rosa still kicking around? The Me Siento Viva album was a CLASSIC (filled with covers by Javiera, Sonja Aldén and of course, Carola!)
