Anyone who says the ‘90s aren’t back needs a slap in the face with a Hypercolour glove. Soundgarden, Stone Roses, Faith No More, Garbage, Ben Folds Five, Cake, The Tea Party, Bush, Backstreet Boys and even East 17 have all crawled out of carbon freeze to recently resurrect their music careers (or their bank balances?).
Ska-pop-punkers No Doubt are the latest act to make the jump from past to present, emerging from hiatus a massive eleven years after their last album Rock Steady. In the break, lead chick Gwen Stefani busted out successfully as a solo act (but remember, she ain’t no Hollaback Girl) while the fellas – guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal and drummer Adrian Young – pursued various musical endeavours of their own. Now the gang’s back and it’s game on with a new album Push and Shove slated for September and first taste ‘Settle Down’ already burning up the internet. What do you think? Have the band still got the goods?
