Boyzone v Take That: Round 2, The Comeback

October 22, 2008

Oh dear. You know you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel in the publicity-seeking stakes when you release statements apologising for something that happened eight years ago. EIGHT YEARS. And even then no one really gave a toss. Except that it’s always good to hear the phrase “Fucking shite” said in a sexy Irish accent.

Boyzone’s reunion reeks of desperation (Loose Women and GMTV appearances, a DIRE comeback single), which is a shame because their status as a poor gal’s Take That seems cemented now. They actually had some great hits and did well for a band who only had 1.5 good-looking members and two who could sing (That had 3.5 fitties and 2.5 who could sing – not counting Lulu).

They also haven’t aged as well as TT. When Gary and co came back they were all kitted out in their best Next finery: scarves, tailoring, a hint of leather… Boyzone look like divorcees who have just done a raid on Burtons and are hanging around at a wedding, waiting for the pissed-up dregs to stagger towards them. No. Not good.

    ‘…divorcees who have just done a raid on Burtons’. Spot-on, Madge!

    God, I hate Keating. Seriously. Even more so now he’s got old.

    He looks awful with that ginger beard and loooooong hair. Bring back the spikes and the dimples say I!

    Can’t stand either, but it has to be said that Boyzone’s new single is far superior to TT’s latest bland effort.

    There’s nothing wrong with a Keaton’s beard. As an owner of such, I heartily endorse ginger pubic regions. They’re like rusted Brillo pads.
