Brothers, Ged and James Weir from Manchester are QOP. To their near million new fans they are much better known as the outrageously funny Queens of Pop. They formed by accident in October 2012 after Ged’s previous band Saltylips split and he asked James to help him out on some music.
The brothers’ comedic timing and uncanny ability to deliver the perfect parody has seen them build a huge online audience over the last 8 months culminating in them receiving almost half a million youtube views for their excruciatingly funny take on Atomic Kitten’s Whole Again which ironically has seen the real Kerry Katona become one of their biggest fans.
The Kitten’s parody sits alongside their wicked takes on Girls Aloud, Steps, Kylie, Taylor Swift and Coronation Street’s Deirdre Barlow and Sally Webster has seen Queens of Pop become nothing short of an online sensation.
Now starting their first live dates, their opening show in Manchester saw more than a thousand people cram into the venue with another 300 locked outside.
Queens of Pop write cutting pop satire and poke their long fingernails deep into pop culture’s ribs and while they may doff their considerable caps to shows like Bo Selecta, Stella Street and The League of Gentlemen, the added twist of their modern day pop songs and ultra glamorous caricatures gives them a deliciously original edge.
The Queens Of Pop, will be appearing at Club Revenge on Friday, June 21, on stage at midnight.
Alex Baker of Club Revenge, said:
“We’re delighted to be the first venue in the South to secure a performance from the Queens Of Pop! Moreover, this is a booking that is in response to overwhelming customer demand. We’ve been inundated with requests to book QOP, and the reaction to their Youtube videos has been staggering”.
