Drop Steady

Well, once the NME reports it, you know it's official. All Saints, who staged a comeback this past fall, have been dropped by British label Parlophone.

The writing was pretty much on the wall when the Parlophone didn't issue a physical CD single for "Chick Fit" (which caused it to fail in cracking the British Top 200 singles) and rumors had been swirling that the foursome would be dropped after dismal sales of their album Studio 1.

Oh well, R.I.P., hookers. Here they are in happier times, with a song that was enjoying a #1 stay in the U.K. right about this time seven years ago:

Meanwhile, The Beach... great book, godawful movie.

    I had forgotten what a great song that is. WHy didn't they do more like it? And where's WIlliam Orbit these days?

    I love Chick Fit but releasing it as a second single was never going to help shift any albums.

    Their comeback was never going to receive the same kind of adulation as Take That's but I'm surprised how quickly it's all gone tits up again.

    William Orbit put a solo album out early last year and All Saints put out, well, their album. Maybe if they'd worked together on one album, it would have been the best thing for all involved.

    S&S, agreed. They had a big hit that stuck around the Top 10 for at least a month and then got dropped all within 5 or 6 months. Wonder what Girls Aloud think?

    i suspect the same fate awaits the spice girls - it will be all over the press for a week then no one will care. Or perhaps no one cares already. It's a cruel world we live in :)

    The Spice Girls have said they won't even do an album. I think they'd fare better than AS. Spice Gilrs were a worldwide thing.

    This won't succeed as a matter of fact, that's exactly what I consider.
