All You Need To Know About McBusted's New Album


McBusted McFly Busted James Bourne Matt Willis

Only a year has passed since the epic announcement that former Busted members, James Bourne and Matt Willis, would join forces with UK popstars McFly, and its been a pretty wild ride for the McBusted group since then. It only makes sense now that things get even crazier as the band has finally announced their debut album, set for release on December 3.

McBustedMcBusted are releasing their new album next month

The self-titled record, which will be distributed via Island Records, will be the first official McBusted release, but it'll also be the first album in general from all of the guys in quite a while. The last we heard from McFly was 2010's Above the Noise, while James Bourne released his Future Boy solo album in the same year as well. It's more of a musical homecoming for Matt Willis, however, as his last material came in the form of his excellent solo effort back in 2006.

Charlie Simpson Says He Didn't See Busted Bandmates For Seven Years


Charlie Simpson Matt Willis James Bourne McBusted Tom Fletcher

Charlie Simpson has finally opened up on a few issues that have been plaguing him for years - namely, his relationship with his former Busted bandmates Matt Willis and James Bourne, who have since formed supergroup McBusted. Speaking this morning on ITV's Lorraine, the now solo singer and guitarist was happy to chat about his life lately.

On having recently re-discovered his friendship with Bourne and Willis, Simpson said. "I hadn't seen them for a long time, six or seven years, and it's been really nice. Almost rebuilding our relationship so I'm pleased - everyone is in a good place, everyone is enjoying doing what they're doing and it's all good."

However, Charlie made sure to point out that his 2005 departure, subsequent folding of the band, and seven years of not seeing Matt and James wasn't due to hard feelings between the group members. "There was never any animosity between me, Matt and James. They're doing the supergroup now and I'm really happy for them," he revealed.

The Great Hip Hop Hoax Review


Excellent

Both engaging and eye-opening, this spirited documentary recounts an outrageous story with humour and honesty, revealing some nasty truths about the music industry in the process. The big issues are prejudice and greed, of course, but the film thankfully keeps its focus on a friendship that is pushed to the breaking point.

Billy Boyd and Gavin Bain first met in their hometown of Dundee in 2000, discovering that they had a mutual love of rap music as well as the talent to write and perform extremely catchy tunes. But record labels and performance venues just laughed in their faces: dismissing the mere idea of Scottish rappers. Then in a moment of frustration, they tell a London club that they're from Southern California, and suddenly everyone wants to hear more of their music. So they re-record their demo with American accents and create elaborate alter egos so they can convince everyone that Silibil n' Brains are partying L.A. skater dudes. Soon they have a big-time manager (Shalit) and a lucrative deal with Sony Records.

Filmmaker Finlay makes terrific use of Boyd and Bain's own video footage, capturing their crazy stunts and buoyant energy. We also see their skills as musicians in clips from their riotous performances. And we know that they have a bigger plan: to become superstars before they expose the hypocrisy in the music business. So it's fascinating to watch everything spiral out of their control. While living the high life and appearing all over the media, their debut album stubbornly refuses to come together, delayed even further when Sony goes through a restructuring. And it isn't easy living 24 hours a day as a fictional character.
