Spice girls video - Nottingham?

Recommended Posts

Who were that two hit wonder band from Nottingham, 3 letters after the members names...maybe 1990/91? One who was chubby ran that pub which was on the junction of western boulevard with Radford Rd which was demolished to make a drive thru McDonalds (think it was called Whatsits and Thingumyjigs for a while?) 

There were two white guys and one black guy and I worked at what was the Mobil petrol station on Nuthall Road next door to Ideal Cleaning and Sherriff Tool Hire. I left the garage and this black guy took my position and he'd only been there a couple of weeks when their record was a hit, (may have been a cover) and he left the garage high n dry and just never went back. Think they followed up with a second single then sank without trace. I remb that they had a lot of local publicity at the time as they came from nowhere and the chubby bloke wasn't usual pop star material. Who were they?

The Sleaford Mods video was made by James Turner who is a big friend of my son. Here's another video made in Nottingham by Fraser Lowrie who is the son of one of MozMicDawn's drummers. http://youtu.

Could be right sure looks like the five spice girls Ginger Mel B & C Baby the other one are indeed traveling on a Nottingham bus? Where's our bus experts?    

Seem to have lost a bit in my last post. Looks to be an ex NCT Atlantean. Apparently the video was shot at the hotel next to St Pancras.

It’s a horrible video RR, doesn’t put Nottingham and its inhabitants in a good light …… but nice to see inside the City Ground.
