I like that La Roux...and Marina and the Diamonds...where did they go?


Just googled though and found that La Roux has in fact got a new album out...maybe the question should be why does it take some artists so long between albums?

that's a daft question's a lot of work I suppose!

They don't sign the blood contract, and without one of those...

maybe they just got on with their lives!

MrsWinnibago Fri 27-Jun-14 22:16:42

Yes maybe they did just get on with things...but the making an album thing...that takes a LOT of hard work. Why do they just bugger off again once they get somewhere?

Like ooh I dunno, Rick Thingy, never gonna give you up fellow, or maybe Cerys Maffews, or that Katie Mehlua (sp)?

Whatever happened to them, eh

Edward Tentpole-Tudor, Swords of a thousand meh-hen. Him too.

No not them Pedlar they just got old! grin Cerys is all high brow now...often on Radio 4 talking about literature and shit.

PedlarsSpanner Fri 27-Jun-14 22:18:49

Lauryn Hill disappeared after her brilliant solo album. I think she caught Excessive Religion and had lots of kids.

I wonder where terence trent darby went, he was a brilliant singer.then one day..gone.

MrsWinnibago Fri 27-Jun-14 22:20:34

Oh yes! Terence!

KirjavaTheCat Fri 27-Jun-14 22:21:07

Lauryn Hill just rejected mainstream society, she didn't 'catch' religion. She just wanted to be left alone.

loveliesbleeding1 Fri 27-Jun-14 22:21:33

Yes lauren hill, she was great, I think she has 7 dc, last I heard I think she was going to prison for no tax or something.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Fri 27-Jun-14 22:21:37

Lauren hill spent time in jail for failing to pay tax in the US too - I'm sure I saw an ad recently about her touring a live show in the UK. Off to google to see if I've imagined that...

notnowbernard Fri 27-Jun-14 22:22:02

Didn't Lauryn hill go to jail?!

MrsWinnibago Fri 27-Jun-14 22:22:33

Ooh...Terence is now Ananda Maitreya and still recording but he says TTD is dead! confused

MrsWinnibago Fri 27-Jun-14 22:23:04

Oh yeah! Lauren Hill is a bit of an Anarchist apparently.

KirjavaTheCat Fri 27-Jun-14 22:23:30

Yeah she did, she neglected to pay the taxes on the royalties she earned whilst away from showbusiness, iirc.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Fri 27-Jun-14 22:23:34

Terence Trent d'arby isn't called Terence Trent D'arby anymore. I googled him the other day, can't remember what he calls himself now.

HumphreyCobbler Fri 27-Jun-14 22:24:10

They probably get a proper job grin

But seriously, just because they make records doesn't mean people are going to buy them, does it?

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Fri 27-Jun-14 22:24:12

Doh cross posts

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Fri 27-Jun-14 22:26:34

Eddie ten pole was fab-he does acting and shit now.
Ttd suffered from a mahoosive ego. Lived his album though.

squoosh Fri 27-Jun-14 22:26:46

I was going to mention Terence too!

I had a bet with my friend that he'd died (sorry Terence), I lost as he's alive and living in Milan!

squoosh Fri 27-Jun-14 22:27:32

Oooooh so TTD himself claims TTD is dead? Maybe I can win on a technicality.

loveliesbleeding1 Fri 27-Jun-14 22:27:52

I think I would buy another terence or lauryn album, if they had one.surely their voices can't have changed that much.
I'm going to youtube terences new name tomorrow, and see if he is about.

MrsWinnibago Fri 27-Jun-14 22:28:49

Yes...HE says that Terence TD is dead so you win.
