dubstar.jpgWell, I remember Dubstar, even if you don’t. They were rather big around the mid-90s, and are one of the few groups to have had a big hit about an old lady getting battered. That was the lovely “Not So Manic Now”.
Now they’re apparently getting back together to record an album with Stephen Hague, who produced stuff for New Order but more importantly did the soundtrack for John Hughes’ Some Kind Of Wonderful. And yes, somehow I knew that without Googling it.
Dubstar’s reformation has understandably pleased many ageing music fans on their Facebook page, who have left comments like:
IM WELL PLEASED DUBSTAR ARE BACK ITS GREAT NEWS IM A MASSIVE FAN OF SARAH BLACKWOOD AND LOVE EVRYTHING SHE DOES AND IN CLIENT BUT DUBSTAR ARE ACE,


Indeed, indeed. My favourite song of Dubstar’s is called “Stars”. It’s a shimmering, wistful bleepy delight, and was catchy enough to be covered, bewilderingly, by Italian goth types Lacuna Coil.
The good news is that “Stars” was also produced by Stephen Hague, so here’s hoping they manage to create some vogueish electropop together like everyone else these days.
This is that “Stars” what I was on about:
