It’s a little saddening to lose Stars in Their Eyes, the heart-warming 90s talent show that introduced the customisable phrase “Tonight Matthew..” to the world, dressing up mums and dads to look like their heroes and letting them sing their heart out to an encouraging studio audience (by today’s standards anyway). With host Matthew Kelly now entering retirement, London-based Sad Girls Club felt it safe to take over the presenting role – asking modern-day acts King of Cats, Two White Cranes, Nicola Leel from Doe, pet cemetery and more to perform song covers in the style of what they call “‘now 44’ for emos”. Pick this crazy little nostalgia trip up on cassette.
