Bangles Star Hoffs' Sweet Return To The Sixties

The BANGLES star SUSANNA HOFFS and cult singer/songwriter MATTHEW SWEET have teamed up to become the new SONNY and CHER with a new duets album.

The odd couple are longtime friends and they're now paying tribute to their favourite 1960s hits on a new covers album.

It's not the first time Sweet and Hoffs have played together: they were both members of spoof AUSTIN POWERS group MING TEA.

Their new album, UNDER THE COVERS VOL 1, will be released in April (06), and feature retro pop favourites like SHE MAY CALL YOU UP TONIGHT and BOB DYLAN's IT'S ALL OVER NOW, BABY BLUE.

The album also features covers from THE BEATLES, THE ROLLING STONES, LOVE, NEIL YOUNG, the BEACH BOYS and VELVET UNDERGROUND.

Come on you people! This the third time now I have commented on such issues and I am the first one to answer again! Music is an important part of our lives and it soothes our souls.We The British have so much to be proud of when it comes to music.Apart from Abba we have had all the great groups and we can also state that Britain was the coolest place in the 60s and we were the leaders in popular music.Who has ever equalled the most successful group in the world, The Beatles. We had the Who, Small Faces,The Kinks,The Troggs, The Rolling Stones and many more.It was a great place to be and I am proud that I walked down Carnaby Street in 1967. So good on you Bangles. Lets hear from you!
