I finally heard the Spice Girls new record this morning…
They never really split up, did they, just went away and did other things for a while. Some successfully, some not so.
Whenever I see or hear them perform I am always struck by the impression that they are less a girl group and more five individuals who happen to be singing the same song at the same time on stage. They were never ones for dance routines or clever harmonies, they just used to do their own thing and they still do.
Even the current video seems more an advert for women in their undies rolling about than a full up music video. Was there a screen exclusivity clause in their latest contract in that they could never appear on screen with any of the others? And the singing, apart from the occasional contribution by Musical Spice, is nothing special…
In our celebrity obsessed time, Headlines, certainly. That’s all there is.
