2 Gether - Biography
|last update : 06-10-2010 01:51|
|2ge+her, aka 2gether: The Series (pronounced "Together") was a fictional boy band whose composition, songs, and formation story is a satirical approach to the boy bands of the 1990s, such as New Kids on the Block, *NSYNC and Britney Spears. They were part of an MTV TV movie and spin-off television series, both of the name 2ge+her. The band, movie, and TV series were created by writers Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn, who also wrote many of their songs.
The band debuted in the movie of the same name on MTV; it was actually the first full-length movie produced exclusively for MTV, and was broadcast without interruption on February 21, 2000. Following the success of the movie's broadcast, MTV used the same characters as part of a regular series, 2ge+her: The Series, which ended near the end of its second season due to the death of Michael Cuccione.
In the movie, the band had a breakout single, "U + Me = Us (Calculus)," which they followed up with "Say It (Don't Spray It)." A soundtrack was released in real life, which also included songs from other fictional bands, including Whoa and Unity. The actors who played the characters did the vocals for their performances. They opened several shows for Britney Spears' 2000 summer tour, always appearing in character. Their sophomore record, though its music was used throughout the TV series, was full-length and solely performed by 2ge+her. Like the soundtrack, the music was comedic but also satirical of pop song conventions. The only single released was "The Hardest Part of Breaking Up (Is Getting Back Your Stuff)" which charted at 87 on The Billboard Hot 100 and spent several days on MTV's Total Request Live.
