Continuing with the mind-fuck realization that 1997 WAS ALMOST A FULL DECADE AGO (PS: WHAT THE HELL?!?!), UK girl group All Saints just announced their plans to reunite. While the ladies never quite made it to the stateside pop A-list in their heyday, they had a handful of enjoyable singles (and knew how to fill out a pair of Adidas track pants, if you catch our drift). They were also early Neptunes supporters, indirectly responsible for Robbie Williams's best songs, and lead Saint Shaznay Lewis even turned out to be a surprisingly good solo artist (go find the "Phones Volt Version" from her "Never Felt Like This Before" single and bow down). Comeback single "Rock Steady" drops November 6th in the UK, and a little birdie tells us there will be a MSTRKRFT version on the flip. Start shining those Max 97s, kids, and enjoy this shit until somebody gets the bright idea to start making swing music again.
