It appears that the auto-tuned "girl group" Parade have been unceremoniously dropped after their self-titled debut only managed to reach no 171 in the album chart.

Can't say I'm surprised.

I wouldn't have been surprised if they'd reached the top 10 either. It looked like they had a big budget behind them.

Quote :
Talking to Entertainmentwise last month about releasing the record without a single, Bianca from the band said: "The fans were so excited about it, they've been going 'When's the album? When's the album?', and it was talked about being the beginning of next year, so we just thought 'you know what'..."

With hindsight, that's actually quite funny.

Looks like no amount of marketing is enough if the music just isn't good enough. The old saying about polishing turds....

Still, Halo Blind is a far better name.

This is quite true. Less reminiscent of a certain less-than-salubrious magazine, for one thing... Wink

Less than salubrious magazine? At least they weren't called "Classic Rock Presents Prog"....

I keep thinking of the old Genesis song title "The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging" .
Not sure if that sums up this Girl group or all manufactured pop.
