    Sugababes Story: Keisha Kicked Out while the girls Get Sexy

    Its the big one - the sweet (7) story -final original member Keisha Buchanan kicked out by management in just days before shooting a video! 
    We discuss the beginnings of the of the Sweet 7 era with the Bruno Mars penned 'Get Sexy' on Roc Nation (Jay-Zs record label). This is less than a year after the motown vibe album, Catfights and Spotlights. 
    If you thought the Sugababes were over once Mutya left.... you need to think again. We get albums, tours, dramas and - of course - slapping it onto soundtracks.

Hollar! This podcast is pure Spice

I bloody love this podcast. I feel as though the gang and I are all discussing our love of all things Spice Girls related over a cup of chai (is that the spiciest beverage?) and the attention to detail, unique point of views, genuine affection and endearing humour makes me smile, ache nostalgically and desperately want more Spice Girls tours and albums to dissect with these eloquent library loving Spice connoisseurs.
