The Wahlberg Brothers know music… and burgers!

Through the years, the music world has given us the most famous families with talented members:  the Everly Brothers, the Jacksons, the Gibb brothers, the Cyruses, and the Wahlbergs.

Donnie Wahlberg first burst onto the scene in the late 1980s as one-fifth of New Kids On The Block, who scored hits with such songs as Please Don’t Go Girl, Hangin’ Tough, Step By Step, and their cover version of the Delfonics’ classic, Didn’t I Blow Your Mind.  Little brother Mark, on the other hand, cut his musical teeth as a rapper before finding success as an actor.  His group, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, placed two singles in the US Top 40, Good Vibrations and Wildside, and Mark portrayed the role of a heavy metal singer in one my favourite movies, Rock Star.

Earlier this year, Mark and Donnie shared with America another passion — hamburgers.  That’s right! They co-own a restaurant in Hingham, Massachusetts called Wahlburgers (duh-dunt-duh) with their brother Paul, who is a chef and, as Mark says, the most talented member of the Wahlberg family.  May I also add that one of my friends has actually been to Wahlburgers quite a few times before.  The restaurant was the subject of the its self-titled reality show, which debuted this past January on A&E.  Wahlburgers is one of my favourite shows, and it’s second season premieres on Wednesday night, 13th August 2014 at 10 pm.

So if you’re a huge fan of the Wahlbergs or NKOTB, or if you just love good food, then Wahlburgers is for you!  Now repeat after me: Wahlburgers, duh-dunt-duh!

Move To This – Cathy Dennis (1991)

During a time when Britpop bands like Blur and Oasis were making headway on America’s rock charts, British soul music was wrapping up it’s own invasion. Music from Soul II Soul, Loose Ends, Caron Wheeler and Lisa Stansfield were having considerable success on American pop and R&B charts.

While The Brand New Heavies and Lisa Stansfield were often at opposite ends of the charts, artist like Cathy Dennis filled in the middle. Except for the emphasis on house music styles, there was nothing distinctively British about her debut album Move To This.

She did represent a kind of coming of age for British Soul, but not in the way you might think. Despite her somewhat child like voice, the lavish production that surrounded her represented a kind of corporate assimilation at the price of national distinction.

If you could image Dennis’ vocal tracks removed…
