I just found out The Steps are back together and going back on tour in April 2012.
Dont know if they were really know this side of the Atlantic?
Anyways, here is my guilty confession - I am slightly excited.
And I dont quite know why. They were crap. They go against exactly what I dont like about manufactured bands and puppet artists. They tried to emulate Abba, who I have a deep musical respect for, depsite being a rock / metal guy.
But for some reason I liked them back. Despite even learning to play most of their hits (dont ask.....) I havent listened to them in 8-9 years, but just having blown a couple of hours on youtube refreshing my memory, maybe its because they were synonymous with a turbulent time in my teen years which worked out for the good, its a pleasant trip down memory lane. And their songs were catchy. Claire could actually sing. I feel sorta ashamed of myself, but I would actually like to see them...
I always loved Lisa Scott Lee for some reason. Always liked brunettes. Maybe it was her lack of bras. Maybe its seeing her approach milfdom which fuels the excitement.
Anyway, I need your help and support please for this to blow over - thanks in advance
Oh, and any Steps fans here by chance?
