After melting the hearts of every young girl in the UK whilst performing week after week on the X Factor UK, Simon Cowell’s Boy band One Direction went on to sign a deal with Simon Cowell’s record company, and promptly became the biggest boy band of the moment, the boys Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, are loved for their good looks, and cheeky personalities. Above all their obvious ability to sing well.  Together  this has proved a winning recipe for success.  Next came the opportunity to visit America, The boys made history today as their debut album UP ALL NIGHT entered the US Billboard 200 chart at #1 with over 176,000 copies sold. This makes chart history as the first British group ever to debut at #1 in the US with their debut album release. UP ALL NIGHT went straight to No.1 on the digital chart within minutes of its official release.

The boys constantly seem grateful and in disbelief about the level of success both here and overseas, in interviews and via twitter.

“We simply cannot believe that we are No.1 in America! It’s beyond a dream come true for us. We want to thank each and every one of our fans in the US who bought our album and we would also like to thank the American public for being so supportive of us.” – Harry x

“We just found out that we are No.1 in America and as you can imagine, we are over the moon! When we got put together as a group, we couldn’t imagine ourselves coming to America, let alone releasing our album here, so for us to be sitting at the top of the US album charts is unbelievable. We are so grateful to everyone who has supported us in the US.” – Niall x

1990’s Brit Pop Superband PULP played their first full live show of 2012 at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night (March 31).

As part of the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs, throughout 2012. The show opened with a number of questions being projected onto a large screen above the stage. The final one asked the crowd ‘Do You Remember The First Time?’ before Pulp appeared on stage to kick off with the 1994 hit.   The set spanned Pulp’s vast career, including the inclusion of ‘My Lighthouse’ during the encore.

Lead singer and writer of most of the Pulp cataloague of tracks, Jarvis Cocker spoke about how the song, , featured his sister Saskia and her school friend Jill Talbot on backing vocals. The pair joined Jarvis and co  onstage to contribute once again, nearly 30 years later, at which point the crowd went insane with cheering.

“Dunno what you’re clapping for…” quipped Javis, “…nobody bought it.”


Jarvis admitted  the fact the band hadn’t played live in six months, aside from performing two songs at the NME Awards in February, when they also picked up this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution To Music award. The show was a massive hit and the overexcited croed sung along to every track they played. It was definately a night for remiscing, and celebrating pure music Talent, that we must never forget.
