GRRLZ ALOUD AND OTHER STORIES
Just watched an excellent popumentary on Girls Aloud. The last single's finally started to grow on me, now that it's fled the charts. Tasters for the new LP are encouraging too, and that tour that Dom, Psychbloke & me failed to get tickets for back in May looked a lorra, lorra fun.
All of which reminds me, Chris and I got a flier thru the post a couple days ago from Butlins Holiday Park in (Yay!) Minehead, North Somerset, advertising a Pop Fest. Spectacular this coming November that features Girls Aloud, Rachel Stevens and the mighty Darius. Plus S Club 7’s Jo O’Meara and a bunch of assorted losers, light-weights and Pop Idol winners. Reasonably priced, I thought. Chris suggested we drugged the kids and locked them in the cupboard that weekend (or maybe she meant us? Actually, thinking about it, it's not a bad idea. It would be a cheap, environmentally-friendly alternative to (physically) leaving the house). It certainly did wonders for Syd Barrett.
Either way...Fuck ATP, that shit's soooo last century.
