Atomic Kitten: The Latest Pop Act To Hop On The Reunion Bandwagon?
"Amid a mess of hair irons, lip gloss and Top Shop seconds, it looks like the soothsayers were right as Atomic Kitten are close to reforming—but with ALL former members, swelling their poisonous ranks to four people. The original line up of Kerry Katona, Natasha Hamilton and Liz McClarnon could be joined by Jenny Frost (second from left above, who replaced Katona in 2001).
All four members have not exactly set the world alight with their solo efforts and most of them (especially Kerry) are pretty much on the bones of their arse. They have sat green-faced (makes a change from the normal orange) as Take That, the Spice Girls and Boyzone all reformed and rolled about in canals stuffed with cash. Now they want a cut of the action."
I gotta admit, despite my penchant for all things pop, I never paid one iota of attention to these boring ho's.
I do recall when MoogaBoo came to visit in summer 2000, and we went to Virgin Megastore and he bought the "I Want Your Love" CD single on import. I think we were mostly curious because Andy McCluskey from Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark was their manager at the time.
But after their third cover version was foisted onto the public as a single, my eyes rolled so far up into my head, they never actually came back down.Atomic Kitten always just seemed like the blandest of the bland. Was I completely missing out on something that everyone else was clued into?
All that said, the one on the far left kinda looks like Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler, so I just might be persuaded to get on board for this reunion.
