Well, not really (a reunion that is, thank goodness). Instead, a quick mention of the fact that The Guardian today picked up on the fact that former Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell has signed to “christian” label Reunion Records. The article is brief and not particularly insightful, but it does bring us the gorgeous note (in linking to some CCM lyrics) that:
they’re much funnier than anything we might say to satirise them.
It’s worth reading this article alongside Kate’s comments yesterday. Personally, I’m hoping that all purveyors of puerile pop will flock to the “christian” labels. If we can get them all into that ghetto then perhaps it’ll be easier for the real world to ignore them?
UPDATE: Apparently I missed one little detail: the Backstreet Boys have not split up. Another Guardian report suggests they will have a new album out in March. Shame.
