TWENTY years ago this month a soundtrack was released that was so good that music and film fans (or maybe just me) still regularly give it a play.
‘William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet: Music from the Motion Picture’ was, for me, a great snapshot of where alternative music was at in 1996, away from the likes of Gina G, the break-up of Take That and a massive injection of ‘Girl Power’.
Featuring a mix of indie, early 90’s rave and soul/choir samples the soundtrack definitely served as an extra character in the movie, a leading role if you will.
Bros announce 2017 reunion
I’M not sure by who exactly, but the ‘Bros’ boys getting back together has reportedly been described as “the biggest reunion in pop” I know I’m confused too.
Last week, Matt and Luke Goss announced they will be reforming a full 28 years since they last played together. Best known for their hit When Will I Be Famous?, Bros last performed together in 1989 before their split in 1992. Is there a market place for Bros at the minute or am I completely missing something?
FLEETWOOD Mac hope to finish new album before the end of the year. Christine McVie has revealed that the band’s half-finished album may be completed by Christmas. The band haven’t released an album since 2003.
