*NSYNC

(Redirected from NSYNC)

*NSYNC is a five-part pop music vocal group, specifically a boy band, formed in Orlando, Florida, USA. The group members are James Lance Bass, Joshua Scott Chasez (JC), Joseph Anthony Fatone Junior (Joey), Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick (Chris), and Justin Randall Timberlake.


History

The group formed in 1995 under the funding of Lou Pearlman, who hired Johnny Wright (former manager of New Kids On The Block ) to be their tour manager. Lance Bass, who coincidentally sang bass, was not originally part of the group. The bass part was sung by Jason Watkins, who left the group early on because he did not like the type of music *NSYNC was performing.

The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym.

Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity.

Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. After moving from BMG to Jive Records, home of rival boy band Backstreet Boys, No Strings Attached, released in March 2000, sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of release—the highest record sales in music history (1.1 million of which was attributed to the first day of release).

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. Their albums have been boosted by a number of successful single releases, including "Tearin' Up My Heart" from *NSYNC, "Music Of My Heart" recorded with Gloria Estefan for the movie Music of the Heart, "Bye Bye Bye", "It's Gonna Be Me" and "This I Promise You" from No Strings Attached. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well.

The group went on hiatus in 2002, as two of its members released solo albums -- Justin Timberlake released Justified on November 4, 2002 and JC Chasez released his solo album, Schizophrenic, on February 24, 2004.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent).

Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. Rumors have circulated that Justin Timberlake quit the group, thus, disbanding NSYNC.

Rumors have circulated that Justin Timberlake quit the group, thus, disbanding NSYNC. The entire edition size has now sold out. Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. Many of the reunion shows, including that April 13 show in Minneapolis, were sold by DiscLive (http://pixies.disclive.com/) in sets of 1,000. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent). A "new retrospective compilation CD" is set for release in the near future. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. In spring 2004, 4AD released Wave of Mutilation: The Best of the Pixies and a companion DVD which features a full concert, the music videos, and a documentary on the Pixies.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. This was followed by a three-month world tour and four-month return to the US, ending on December 18 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City (see tour dates (http://www.pixiesmusic.com/live_04.php) for detailed information). The group went on hiatus in 2002, as two of its members released solo albums -- Justin Timberlake released Justified on November 4, 2002 and JC Chasez released his solo album, Schizophrenic, on February 24, 2004. It is rumoured that these dates hold the world record for fastest selling shows ever. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well. Tickets for shows on this tour often sold out minutes after going on sale despite some rather moderately sized Canadian cities such as Winnipeg and Regina being stops. Their albums have been boosted by a number of successful single releases, including "Tearin' Up My Heart" from *NSYNC, "Music Of My Heart" recorded with Gloria Estefan for the movie Music of the Heart, "Bye Bye Bye", "It's Gonna Be Me" and "This I Promise You" from No Strings Attached. It wasn't until 2004 when the Pixies would play their first "post-breakup" concert on April 13 at The Fine Line Music Cafe in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota and a 15 concert warmup tour of the western United States and Canada, culminating in the performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. Roughly once a year on April Fool's Day someone would be led to believe that the band had re-united. After moving from BMG to Jive Records, home of rival boy band Backstreet Boys, No Strings Attached, released in March 2000, sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of release—the highest record sales in music history (1.1 million of which was attributed to the first day of release). In the 11 years since the band broke up, there were a number of rumors that would circulate regarding reunion tours. Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. This revitalized some interest in the band after they were gone. No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity. There are substantial parallels between the two groups' sounds and Kurt Cobain was known to have been a fan—in fact, in a Rolling Stone interview he claimed "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was his attempt to write a Pixies song.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". Right at the moment they were imploding, Nirvana was recording Nevermind, the album that would break alternative rock into the mainstream. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business. Musically, the Pixies were just slightly ahead of their time. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. Santiago has appeared on Frank Black's solo albums, writes music for FOX television, and has a band called The Martinis with his wife, Linda Mallari. Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. Lovering dropped back into obscurity, making occasional appearances as a "scientific phenomenalist", performing experiments on stage; he also drummed on one of Tanya Donelly's solo albums.

After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym. Kim Deal has also recorded with The Amps. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. The album, Title TK, finally appeared in 2002, with only Kim and Kelley remaining from the previous Breeders lineup. The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. However, for several years they struggled to produce another album, mainly due to Kelley Deal's struggles with heroin. The bass part was sung by Jason Watkins, who left the group early on because he did not like the type of music *NSYNC was performing. Deal returned to the Breeders, and scored a hit with "Cannonball" from that group's Last Splash in 1993.

Lance Bass, who coincidentally sang bass, was not originally part of the group. He then went on to form a band with Scott Boutier, Eric Drew, Rich Gilbert, David McGaffrey, and Dave Phillips called Frank Black and the Catholics. The group formed in 1995 under the funding of Lou Pearlman, who hired Johnny Wright (former manager of New Kids On The Block ) to be their tour manager. Black Francis renamed himself Frank Black, and released several solo albums.
. Without telling anyone, Black Francis ended the band, and it wasn't until a year later that he faxed an official notice to the other members. The group members are James Lance Bass, Joshua Scott Chasez (JC), Joseph Anthony Fatone Junior (Joey), Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick (Chris), and Justin Randall Timberlake. Trompe le Monde still featured little input from Deal and wasn't as critically regarded as their first few albums.

*NSYNC is a five-part pop music vocal group, specifically a boy band, formed in Orlando, Florida, USA. Break-up announcements notwithstanding, one more album was to follow. 2002 "Girlfriend" #5 US, #2 UK. The Pixies were at the height of their popularity, however, and while headlining at the Reading Festival in 1991, they played a highly enthusiastic version of "Debaser" which has become legendary among fans. 2001 "Gone" #11 US, #24 UK. Deal was not pleased, and unilaterally announced an apparent break-up of the band on-stage during the following tour. 2001 "Pop" #19 US, #9 UK. During this time, Black Francis limited Deal's contributions to the band; the first two albums had been partly written by Deal, but when Bossanova was released in 1990, all songs were by him.

2000 "This I Promise You" #5 US, #21 UK. After Doolittle, Black Francis temporarily went solo, while Kim Deal formed The Breeders with Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses and Deal's sister, Kelley. 2000 "It's Gonna Be Me" #1 US, #9 UK.

It was a top 10 hit in the UK and reached the top 100 in North America. 2000 "I'll Never Stop" #13 UK. For the remainder of their career, the Pixies remained large-scale stars in Britain and cult figures in the US. 2000 "Bye Bye Bye" #4 US, #3 UK.

2000 "Music of My Heart" (with Gloria Estefan) #2 US, #34 UK. 4AD was a British music label, and the notoriously rabid British music press immediately clutched the Pixies to their collective bosoms and refused to let go. 1999 "Tearin' Up My Heart" (re-release) #9 UK. It was followed by their first full-length album, Surfer Rosa in early 1988. 1999 "I Want You Back" #13 US, #5 UK. Eight tracks from the demo were selected for the Come on Pilgrim EP, the band's first release. 1998 "God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You" #8 US. The demo fell into the hands of Ivo Watts-Russell, owner of 4AD, who signed the band.

During a concert with Throwing Muses, the band was noticed by Gary Smith, a producer at Fort Apache Studios. No Strings Attached (2000, Jive) #1 US, #14 UK. They arrived at a name ("Pixies") by selecting an entry from the dictionary at random, and began playing shows in the Boston area. The Winter Album (1998, BMG). Reportedly, the ad asked for a bass player who liked The Mamas and the Papas and Husker Du.

Home For Christmas (1998, RCA/BMG) #7 US. Bassist Kim Deal joined the band after she responded to a classified ad Black Francis had placed which requested an unusual combination of musical influences. NSYNC (1998, RCA/BMG) #2 US, #30 UK. The band was formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts by Joey Santiago and Black Francis (born Charles Thompson IV). Most notable was their use of soft verses and hard choruses, which was later popularized by Nirvana. Their style of music influenced many aspects of alternative rock throughout the 1990s.
