*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. Did not have any US Top 40 hits. Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. The consistent lineup has also allowed the band to coalesce as a live act not only reproducing their studio albums live but also able to recreate the band's entire back catalogue. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent). Vanishing Point revitalised the band and introduced a far more complex musical dynamic that has so far have produced increasingly complex yet accessible albums in the form of XTRMNTR and Evil Heat in a surprisingly short period of time. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. Starting with the Vanishing Point album (influenced by the film of the same name) a new complex dance/dub rhythm was present in most of the tracks harking back to the crossover success of Screamadelica.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. Mani was the key addition though. 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. Shields brought a great deal of producing talent and a third guitarist to the live band. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well. More line up changes added Mani and Kevin Shields to the group. 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. More of an out and out rock and roll record, critics compared it in style and sound to the early Rolling Stones.

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. Give Out But Don't Give Up, recorded in Nashville, was another radical departure. 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). Screamadelica was blending rock with dance music. Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. This remix has since become the most well-known version of the track and failing to put the definitive original version on any album has (as with "Velocity Girl") damned what may be the group's finest moment to obscurity. No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity. "Loaded" was followed by "Come Together" - a remarkable psychedelic gospel track sampling Nastassja Kinski from Wim Wender's 'Paris, Texas' and the guitar riff from Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds." The original track was backed by a Terry Farley produced version with added beats and an instrumental mix by Weatherall containing a sample of the Reverend Jesse Jackson ("You will hear gospel and rhythm and blues and jazz, all those are just labels, we know that music is music") which became another dance classic and highpoint of the Ibiza scene.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". The track was a phenomenal critical success, played everywhere from Ibiza to Glasgow and, along with The Stone Rose's "Fool's Gold" and The Happy Mondays' "Step On," marks the point where white indie music got funky. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business. "Loaded" took the piano motif (provided by new recruit, former member of Felt, Martin Duffy), the horn section and bassline from the climax of "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have," added a drum loop from an Italian bootleg mix of Edie Brickell's "What I Am", a sample of Gillespie singing a line from Robert Johnson's "Terraplane Blues" and the central introductory sample from the Peter Fonda B-movie The Wild Angels. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. Employing methods of deconstructing and layering grooves normally found in the Jamacian dub music of King Tubby and The Scientist. Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. Standout track "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have" was remixed by Dance DJ Andrew Weatherall (Sabres of Paradise/Two Lone Swordsmen).

After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym. Today "Primal Scream" remains a curiously underrated album and several critics have voiced the opinion that a critical reassessment is overdue particularly given its relatively contemporary style. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. Founder member Jim Beattie left to form Spirea X, continuing that early psychedelic sound, the central trio of Bobby Gillespie, Andrew Innes and Rob Young (augmented by drummer Philip "Toby" Tomanov and bassist Henry Olsen of Nico's band The Faction) relocated to Brighton and ditched their trademark jangly sound for good. The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. Due to their dramatic change in sound the band risked alienating their initial fanbase and the album was criticised in the music press. 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 following self-titled album had a much heavier edge influenced by MC5, Iggy Pop and The Stooges and the sixties Detroit garage scene.

Lance Bass, who coincidentally sang bass, was not originally part of the group. The highlight of their early work is undoubtedly the "Crystal Crescent" B-side "Velocity Girl" which was effectively the melodic template for most indie music for the next decade, The Stone Roses' "Made Of Stone" and their debut album in particular are indebted to it's sound as are a host of others. 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. Debut album Sonic Flower Groove was heavily influenced by The Byrds, The Velvet Underground and the C86 shoegazing scene (eg My Bloody Valentine, The Wedding Present etc) of which they were pioneers.
. The music was meant to be somewhat instinctual and primal in nature. The group members are James Lance Bass, Joshua Scott Chasez (JC), Joseph Anthony Fatone Junior (Joey), Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick (Chris), and Justin Randall Timberlake. Initially a psychedelic rock group with a formless loud guitar based sound influenced by the primal scream therapy theory (which also gave the band their name).
