Tamer, Christie, Francine.
The Face - formerly Pandering And The Golddiggers (!) - list their influences on their Facebook as Grace Jones, ELO and the Scissor Sisters (among some other boring people), and they evidently believe themselves to be the perfect mix of all that.
They may be better at interviews than they are at pop. Mind you, there's promise in their music: bombastic eurobelter 'Suicidal' is probably the pick of their new stuff, although if you visit their old Myspace page you'll be able to hear early singles 'Disco Bloodbath' and 'Oops, Do You Love Me', which mix 70s disco, a 'smattering' of funk and a pretty hefty dollop of Scissor Sistersness. Since the name change they've been working on new songs in Sweden with the-not-exactly-terrible Le Kid who should hopefully be able to channel their 'excesses' into something resembling pop gold (or at least something Alcazar might record).
Let's hear something then
The Unfair Advantage
They met at the Brit School, but then so did half of the UK popstar population so we're not sure what that really means any more, and apparently Tamer is friends with Jake Shears, which might come in handy at some point.
The Job Interview
Why do you want this job?
Tamer: Because this job wants me.
Francine: The free clothes. Seriously though, harmonising is awesome.
Christie: When you find yourself singing all day and having that passion to be a successful musician, you can't think of anything else you want to do.
Describe a situation where you worked in a team.
Francine: The aforementioned harmonising.
Tamer: I've always worked best in a team, and being pushed by each other to always improve is never a bad thing.
What do you expect to be doing in five years' time?
Tamer: Existing successfully.
Francine: Touring the world. It will be the future then so perhaps instead of a tour bus we could teleport. Science will have ironed out all the kinks by 2017 hopefully.
What are your weaknesses?
Christie: We all have our weaknesses but as there are three of us we help each other through those times.
Francine: Hooky choruses. I actually own the Ultra album.
What are your strengths?
Tamer: Having no weaknesses.
Francine: Artistic fearlessness.
Christie: We always strive for the best and never settle for anything else. All the greats do and that's what makes a true musician/artist stand out from the rest.
What has been your greatest achievement?
Christie: After leaving school and throughout college I set up my own business in the music sector. I feel proud of that, and it's given me the flexibility and time to focus on my career with the band.
Francine: Laughing off a double nipple slip onstage in front of 2000 people at Shepherd's Bush Empire. My parents were in the audience at the time.
Tamer: Having a band with possibly the best people in the world and getting to work with them everyday.
How good are they out of a million?
615,897, with the potential to go as high as 890,981
