EAST 17 : Deep

While 'Deep' won't take the crown of being East 17's biggest ever chart hit, it's most definitely a track that holds it's own against some of today's pop music. The boys from Walthamstow took the global charts by storm in the early 1990s with their home-boy earthiness. And that's what probably endeared them to a loving public - that they all seemed so damned normal. No pretense, no bullshit, just your average guy-next-door types, bouncing about in hoodies, releasing classic pop music. Respect.

Three of them are slated to release a new E-17 (formerly East 17 with Tony Mortimer) album called "Universalization" this year. It was supposed to be released in the Spring but it seems like it is indefinitely delayed. One of the new tracks is called "Trouble". It is a nice R&B slow jam.
