We're no boy band...

WE'RE NO BOY BAND

James Bourne is ready to leave his Busted days behind him as he sets out with Son of Dork

JAMES Bourne believes his new band Son Of Dork are even better than chart-toppers Busted and expects to put his former bandmate Charlie Simpson's Fightstar firmly in the shade.

The singer-songwriter behind Busted's smash hits What I Go To School For, Year 3000 and Crashed The Wedding, admits he still finds it hard to believe that Simpson quit Busted.

James and Matt Jay were at the height of their fame when Simpson said he was leaving because he hated the music.

James explained: 'Busted's split was all down to Charlie's decision to leave the group. He didn't want to be in the band any more and that's why it ended.

'I was very disappointed. He must have really hated it.

'I couldn't believe it. I thought there was no way he would leave and that I'd be able to talk him out of it, but I couldn't force him to stay. He had his heart set on doing his alternative rock thing so I had to leave him to it.

:nono:

Smilie, the bassist for amazing glasgow band Julia Thirteen turned down a very large contract offer to play bass with Speedway, little known fact.

The man is a living legend, known all round Scotland for his brilliance and possibly the only guy who smiles more than Zippy

I quite like the new song but I don't like his attitude "I applaud Charlie for doing the small club thing but it ain't my thing and want to go staright to big venues and arena's"

Only way he'll do that is back on the smash hits tour.

He is going straight into the big time as a DIRECT result of busted. No credibility. Shit band a la simple plan and new found glory.

New Found Glory's guitarist, Chad Gilbert, was in one of the metalcore scenes most influential bands, Shai Hulud. He sang for Hulud for a few years and writes almost all of New Found Glory's songs. He has cred. Therefore New Found Glory do. End of.

I should let Ben speak for himself but I don't think he meant that NFG have no credibility. I think he just meant that Son of Dork are a shit band, like NFG are. You're probably away to overrule me though.

I actually quite like NFG, they write catchy pop punk songs and Jordan's vocals stand out as his voice isn't like a million other vocalists (tho it can be irritating in large doses).

Son Of Dork are very much just NFG-lite for the kids. If it gets kids into great music i'm all for it. They're inoffensive and cheery. Give them a break.

i like the video,which appears to imply they live in an american suburb, go to an american high school, and play american football. really true to their roots.
