RiotBecki and Rosay have left The Pipettes.
This is even worse than when Mutya left Sugababes.
to me they will always be that line-up. Gwenno, RiotBecki, Rosay, 1, 2, 3, let's go. i mean, they're hardly The Fall are they.
the brunette was my fave.
Not that I wish to be accused of sexism, I did enjoy her contributions to the band and she was always the funniest in interviews but hot diggity she was pretty.
she's already got a solo project, will it just turn into Gwenno & Her Band?
apparently one of the new members is her very own sister...
i never really liked gwenno - she always seemed a bit hard and scary to me. like sarah harding out of girls aloud, except her surname being literal.
maybe you're too swayed by eyebrow shape.
gwenno always seemed like the evil version of her
is totes the best one...they were never gonna last though were they?
if they're not going to last then why don't they just stop and preserve the memory? Is this going to be like seeing Queen as they are now? Not that i'd want to see Queen in the first place but still...
"The Pipettes have two new members, Ani and Anna. We are demoing up 20-25 new songs, with an eye to recording a second album in the Summer. We want to tell you all about them, but we’re very much head-down working on new material at the moment
This means that RiotBecki and Rosay have left to pursue other musical pursuits (which will be brilliant when they emerge), we wish them all the best, we’re all still great friends and news on their pursuits will be closely supported by us.People may be confused by such a drastic change in line-up but please rest assured - if we were to be an imitation of ourselves we would stop."
Ani and Anna??
That's going to be confusing
The world holds breath
Pipettes side project? We know where this leads and the Jingjangjong.
Lets just FFWD to the summer re-union of 2009. Oh wait.........come back, don't go.
It's Pippettes 2.2 or version 3.
Julia from the Indelicates was replaced by Gwenno a few years back.
dear, dear, dear...
has a routine about having seen the Four Tops in Las Vegas and only realising afterwards that none of the original members were still in the band, leading him to question whether he'd really seen the Four Tops or not. This seems to be operating on a similar basis.
Still, at least it gives the lie to the concept pedalled for the last couple of years that the front girls are as much in control, part of the creative process and generally un-expendable as the Cassettes (and Rose wrote quite a few of their songs on the quiet, which makes their current intentions all the more transparent)
a birdie told me a couple of month ago they were 'splitting' but i wasn't quite expecting this. oh dear. julia slotted in some pipettes lyrics into an indelicates song a few days ago. that amused me.
of Trigger's broom on Only Fools And Horses.
They should do a reality TV show to select the replacements.
