To break in the new year of music, we've decided to launch our 'B-side of the Week' feature. Each Saturday we'll be examining an obscure track that one of our favourite acts will be sticking on their CD single/including as part of their iTunes "bundle" the following Monday. They may be minor masterpieces, they may be pretty horrendous, but either way we'll be giving them a listen.
To get things rolling, we've managed to nab the B-side to Girls Aloud's new single 'The Loving Kind'. It's called the 'Girls On 45 Megamix' and it's a sizzling, club-friendly celebration of the group's back catalogue. Jewels & Stone are on knob-twiddling duties here, mixing together 12 of the group's hits with the intro and outro from the 'Stars on 45' medleys of the 1970s. At seven-and-a-half-minutes long, it's quite a treat.
The full version is available on 'The Loving Kind' CD single, out January 12, but here's a 30-second taster to whet your appetites:
