This is what happens when you put two of the most important boy bands of the 90’s together

As a kid I was a MASSIVE fan of Boyzone and Westlife… To be honest, I was a bigger Take That fan but I loved Boyzone and Westlife too.

Well………. This is for all those 80’s kids (maybe early 90’s kids too)…. Brian McFadden (Westlife) and Keith Duffy (Boyzone) are uniting forces to create a duo called Boyzlife!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keith and Brian

Boyzlife will be on the road in March across the UK for 12 days sharing their stories and performing their best known songs… (Which I’m sure will include Words, Baby Can I Hold You, Picture Of You, Fool Again (filmed in Mexico!!!), Flying Without Wings, World Of Our Own and more).

Boyzone – how I remember them!

 

Westlife – what they looked like in the late 90’s/early 2000’s

I can’t wait to see what the boys are cooking!

BLAST from the past, that’s for sure!

Sit back and remember the good old days with the following tunes I picked out…

Boyzone – When The Going Gets Tough

Westlife – Swear It Again

The Stone Roses have a surprise for us!

The Stone Roses are set to make an announcement in the next few hours!

The following rumor began when posters of the famous lemon logo the band are recognized for started appearing in shop windows around Manchester (place where the band are from).

I saw this announcement on the news, and Matt was the guy that tweeted the pictures of the lemon all over town, Matt you are a LEGEND!

They could be announcing a new album, a massive festival headline slot or a tour; whatever it may be, I’m delighted!

I feel a massive connection with bands from Manchester as I’m a Manc too, and I must say, The Stone Roses are DEFINITELY in my top 5 Manchester bands list of all time.

P.s If the guys go on tour, plan a few concerts or whatever, I would recommend you to go see them as they are insane live, absolutely incredible!

Have a listen to one of my fave tracks by the boys, Waterfall!

Xabi Alonso ain’t just a pretty face and ace footballer…

Apart from being extremely handsome, down to earth and a whiz on the pitch, Xabi Alonso sure knows what music to listen to.

Over the past few months and years he’s tweeted songs such as:

Galaxie 500 – Isn’t It A Pity

Lou Reed – Perfect Day (Xabi tweeted this song on the day Lou passed away – 27 October 2013 – and wrote the following: “Not perfect day. RIP Lou Reed.”)

The Velvet Underground – Pale Blue Eyes

The Brian Jonestown Massacre – It Girl

Dinosaur Jr – Don’t Pretend You Didn’t Know

Monty Python – Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life (Alonso had a foot operation back in August of 2013 and tweeted this song, he also thanked his fans and followers for their good wishes)

Well, I’m sure you guys get the jist of all of this…

London based record label, Young Turks isn’t too happy and they have all the reason not to be!

Young Turks – a London based record label for SBTRKT, John Talabot, Chairlift, Jack Penate, The xx, and more isn’t too happy at the moment….

Hugo Boss used a song made by an unidentified producer that sounded identical to The xx‘s Intro for a sunglasses advert. I understand why the record label got all steamed up and it seems as though HB have removed the video from YouTube.

Have a listen to Intro here!

Amber has filed for divorce…

Rumours are true, Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are getting divorced after only a year of marriage.

Fergie has a Glamorous surprise for us

Black Eyed Peas singer – and hot stuff Josh Duhamel’s wife, Fergie is supposedly bringing out a new album after 8 years!

There’s a lot of chit chatter on whether or not it’s a new album, a sequel to The Dutchess and so on, but the album (that we don’t know exists or not) is supposed to come out in 2015 with a new single dropping before the end of the year.

will.i.am is the one handling the production for Fergie’s second studio album, and if her songs are anything like Big Girls Don’t Cry and Glamorous, I’m sure her album’s going to be stupendous!

I’m a big fan of Fergie’s solo work, have a listen to my two fave songs of The Dutchess below.

Fergie ft. Ludacris – Glamourous

Fergie – Big Girls Don’t Cry

Darkside is coming to an end

Electronic duo, Darkside is coming to an end. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington will play their last show at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple on September 12th.

Darkside EP consisted of three songs and came out in November 2011. It was very well received critically and got an 8.0 from Pitchfork.

Random Access Memories Memories was the duos second collaboration and came out in June 2013. The project which was uploaded to a SoundCloud account under the pseudonym DaftSide, is a remix of Daft Punk’s 2013 album Random Access Memories in its entirety.

Physic is the duos debut album and it came out last October. I have the CD and it’s ravishing, from beginning to end. The cool thing about the release of the album was that Jaar and Harrington invited fans to listen to the album with them at a small venue on New York’s Lower East Side, and so many people showed up that the band had to do two listening sessions to accommodate all of the people!

They’ll be missed!
