Sugababes: poptastic

I went to see Sugababes last night (my wife’s a fan), and I’ll cheerfully admit I wasn’t looking forward to it. Not just because I’d be the oldest person in the audience, but because pop gigs can be dangerous things: for every slice of perfect pop there’s usually 25 hours of tedious session musician guitar wankery, mindless babble and ill-advised jazz-funk reinterpretations of the hits you’re there to hear, all in an attempt to take 30 minutes of decent tunes and fill an hour and a half of showtime.

But my god, Sugababes were superb.

Apart from the Arctic Monkeys cover.

    Nah, can’t agree with you on that one. Doesn’t play to any of their strengths and encourages the session musos to Rock Out. which is never a good thing :)

    Sugababes do the vocals on one of the tracks of William Orbit’s new album; it’s pretty darn good. (The album and the song).

    I’m not overly keen on the Arctic Monkeys either. Finding it hard to understand all the hype to be honest.

    I do like the Sugababes though. I’m allowed to, I’m a girl. ;-)

    Oh, that wink wasn’t because I’m not a girl, I am a girl- honest.

    I think Girls Aloud’s current album is better than the current Sugababes one. If it just had “Biology” and “models” on it, it’d still be my favourite pop album :)
