Since they mentioned that only Geri, Mel B and Vicky were a part of the original line-up, let's remember the ALMOST SPICES here.



The fabulous Liann Morgan:




Melanie Laccohee:



And of course, Michelle Stephenson:

The less said about Lianne the better so bitter.

Why didn't they form a rival band? Missed opportunity methinks.

It must have been so so so sickening when they hit the big time, especially Michelle Stephenson!

I don't want to be mean to Lianne...especially as she's known to read online forums. Buuut.

I find her story of being devastated to be cut from the group to be rather odd. She was cut before much of anything really happened. And you'd think someone who was part of the singing/dancing circuit would be far better adjusted to rejection. Could her disappointment have actually come much later when the group blew up? Maybe. But the reality is...the group only blew up because of the line-up they landed with. It may be that Lianne could technically sing circles around Geri and Victoria. But. Divine technical prowess wasn't what was really needed for the opening lines of Who Do You Think You Are. Y'know?

Michelle Stephenson, on the other hand, did seem to have the right voice for a pop group. However...I'm not sure her intention as "the smart university girl" would have been anywhere in the stratosphere as popular with fans as what Emma became.

Lol. I wonder what her character would have even looked like? Five women bolt onto a stage...adorned in a union jack dress...leopard print...black Gucci...a tracksuit...and...a...uh...graduation cap and gown?

But. Really. I guess it's a little surprising in retrospect some company didn't nab up Michelle during Spice-mania...and try to push her out there as Billie Piper 2.0. Her voice was right for pop. She was really quite beautiful. The Spice connection meant a built-in interest for interviews.

Anyway. I've heard a few of her songs on Youtube. I'll admit Boom Boom is kinda an ear worm. It reminds me a smidge of some of the unreleased solo Spice demos from the early 2000s.

Anyone know the story behind those recordings? Michelle ever attempt a real go at it?...or were those from just playing around in a studio?

I've just found this article on Melanie L. She seems lovely and she has a great voice.
