All Saints

Nine Top 10 singles, including five Number 1s, plus two platinum and two gold albums and over 10 million record sales tell the story of one of the UK's most successful girl bands of the 1990s. Mel Blatt and Shaznay Lewis were both session singers and originally formed All Saints with Simone Rainford, making their debut at the Notting Hill Carnival. They released their first single Silver Shadow in 1994 but, after it flopped, Rainford left and was replaced by Canadian sisters Nicole and Natalie Appleton. The new line-up released their first single I Know Where It's At in 1997, but it was the second, the sensual Never Ever that made them a sensation, going on to sell a million copies. They followed it with a double A-side, featuring a cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Under The Bridge and Lady Marmalade, another Number 1. Other major hits swiftly followed, including Bootie Call, War Of Nerves, Pure Shores (from the movie The Beach), Black Coffee and All Hooked Up. Rumours of internal arguments were confirmed when they announced their split in 2001 but after pursuing solo careers with varying degrees of success, the group reunited in 2006 to release their third album Studio 1. However, despite hits with Rock Steady and Chick Fit, they disappeared again in 2008.
