Galaxy Defenders Stay Forever!

Another year over and we're still together, it's not always easy but Mcfly's here forever!

REMEMBER WHEN MCFLY LOOKED LIKE THAT...

We're wishing McFly a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY today marking the 8th year since they first became a band. Well done Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd and Danny Jones, you've McFly-ed well over the years. Oh the memories we have - listening to '5 Colours in Her Hair' on repeat, queueing up for McFly concerts, hysterically screaming in their faces. Good times.

McFly's sound has changed over the years from their carefree, Beach Boys-esq tracks to their sophisticated dance tunes. We can't help but notice that their 'look' has changed too. Remember when they had bleached-tipped hair? Wore ties? Pulled funny faces in every pic?

If you can't then look through out McFly gallery spanning from 2011 all the way back to 2003. Let's start with the present day and go back:

Tom Fletcher Rocked By Latest Japan Quake



"Mcfly star Tom Fletcher was left shaken in Japan after a strong earthquake hit the eastern coast of the country on Sunday (24Jul11).

The pop star, who is currently touring Japan with his bandmates, was terrified after he was awoken by the quake, which struck 175 miles (282 kilometres) northeast of Tokyo.

But after taking to Twitter.com to tell fans about his fear, Fletcher soon realised that locals didn't consider the tremor a serious threat.

He tweets, "S**iiit!!!!!! just got woken up by bloody earthquake. That could be small if you're used to it but it was bloody scary for us Brits!

"I'm guessing that was kind of a nonevent for everyone else. I was straight out of bed standing naked... under the doorframe. That's what they do in the movies right? Not naked of course."

No damage or injuries have been reported after the earthquake, which hit the same region devastated by March's (11) massive quake and tsunami."

thurrockgazette: School pool opened by McFly star

BASSIST Dougie Poynter, from pop band McFly, formally opened a new £100,000 swimming pool at his old school.

The ex-pupil of Corringham Primary School, in Herd Lane, Corringham, was joined by Thurrock mayor Charlie Curtis to unveil a commemorative plaque for the new pool, built with money raised from the Parent and Teacher Association.

Michelle Hobbs, former chairman of the association, who helped with fundraising, said: “Dougie learnt how to swim in the old pool, so it is lovely he was involved with the opening.

“The former pool and the building, which was made out of corrugated plastic, was old and condemned, so five years ago the association decided to raise money for a new one.”

Contactmusic: Mcfly Stars Climbing Mountain For Charity

Mcfly stars Tom Fletcher and Harry Judd are preparing to don their climbing boots to scale Scotland's Ben Nevis mountain for charity.

The British musicians are in training for the trek this summer (11) and are planning to donate all the funds raised to help educate underprivileged kids in boarding schools on the Peruvian island of Amantani.

And the bandmates have made the challenge extra tough, by agreeing to carry the equivalent weight of a child in their backpacks on the climb.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, Judd writes, "Any kind of donation to our justgiving page will go a long way. Leave a message when you donate so Tom and I can read them!"

Fletcher admits his training is in full swing, and he climbed Mount Snowdon in Wales on Thursday (14Jul11) for a practice run.

He tells his Twitter fans, "Tweeting from the summit of Mount Snowdon. Not bad for a morning's work."

Harry and Tom Fundraising

Harry och Tom har skapat en fond för att samla in pengar till en tjej som heter Christina. När Christina var 8 år blev hon utsparkad från sitt hem av hennes mamma nya man, hon fick därför bo på gatorna och försöka hitta någonstans att bo på kvällarna. Här är texten Harry har skrivit:


"Tom and I

have decided to climb Ben Neivs with the weight of a Peruvian Child on our back! The money we hope to raise will go towards keeping this girl in one of Amantani's boarding schools for a whole year. Amantani's intercultural boarding schools near Cusco, Peru, have transformed the live of 64 Quechua children who previously walked up to 8 hours daily to get to and from school. Many of them escape terrible conditions at home.

The girl we had decided to support is Christina.

When Cristina was only 8 years old, her mother's new husband chucked her out of the house. So every night when Cristina returned to her community after walking back from school, she was forced to wander from house to house, trying desperately to find somewhere to sleep. She was traumatised; she did not speak or smile.

Cristina came into Amantani's boarding houses in March 2009 and we are pleased to say that Cristina is now a completely different girl! A second chance of belonging to a family that loves her has helped her to grow in confidence. Confidence that she can use in the classroom, in her new found friendships and at home where we have helped her re-build relationships with her mum. She can now prepare herself for the extremely challenging life as a Quechua girl growing up in modern Peru.
For more information on the Charity the please visit www.amantani.org.uk

Thank you for taking the time to read through our just giving page and please give generously!!
Love Harry and Tom x
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.

60 seconds with Harry Judd -





The drummer of Britain’s biggest pop-rock band talks about the things he
couldn’t do without on his rider on tour.

Beer or
coffee?
Beer.

Crisps or popcorn? Crisps.

Treats from home or local cuisine? Local cuisine. You
have got to experience the culture of where you are. It is a lot of fun being
taken to nice restaurants but then again, sometimes you do miss Marmite. So I
always take some Marmite with me.

Bed at midnight or party ‘til
5am?
Preferably bed before midnight. It would have been different in
the past but at the moment it is definintely bed before midnight.

Alarm clock or woken by friends? Alarm clock please.

Cards or monopoly? I think I would have to say cards
because you can play more games and it is easier to carry.

DVD
or computer game?
DVD.

What is the ultimate item you
could take on your rider?
I would take a personal masseuse. Touring for
a couple of months at a time means your shoulders get tight. It would be good to
get on the bus and get a rub down.

Tom Fletcher: The Cube

Här är en artikel om Toms medverkan i The Cube ikväll från Entertainmentwise.com

"We’ve all sat there on our comfy sofas, watching The Cube, and shouting out comments (and instructions) as contestants make the most ridiculous decisions on how to complete, what are clearly, simple tasks…

This weekend we’ll be able to see McFly’s Tom Fletcher attempt to beat The Cube in a McFly special of the gameshow. This Entertainmentwise reporter was lucky enough to witness his endeavour whilst sat in the audience…although most of the time the hands covering her eyes (her own) prevented her from seeing what was actually happening.



We obviously can’t spill the beans on what happens as we’d get into a lot of trouble for doing so, (most likely we’d be thrown into the glass Cube and forced to spend the rest of eternity there), but what we can tell you is that it’s definitely worth a watch.



Host Phillip Schofield said to the Radio Times: “Tom Fletcher from boyband McFly is on during this series and that’s an amazing show. His bandmates were hilarious as his supporters – they give him what turns out to be utterly useless advice!” That reminds us, expect to laugh a lot during this episode as the advice from Tom’s bandmates is sidesplitting, with bass player Dougie Poynter giving a Yoda twist to his words of wisdom.



Tom wrote on his Twitter this morning: “Keep forgetting that my episode of The Cube is on this Saturday. Genuinely one of the most tense days of my life. Brilliant though!”


The Cube Celebrity Special: McFly is on ITV this Saturday at 8:40pm. We’re getting ready to relive the drama and shout at the TV!"

Hej alla läsare! Det var ett tag sen senast!
Vill bara säga att eftersom McFly har varit bortresta så har det inte varit så mycket nytt som har hänt. Sommaren är äntligen här också vilket gör att man hellre vill vara ute i det fina vädret än att sitta inne vid datan.
Vi har funderat på att börja göra End of the Month videos igen, men vi får se hur det går. Det kommer inte bli en video varje månad utan kanske var 3e och lägger bara in det viktigaste som hänt.

OK! McFly are hotter than The Wanted and JLS



IF you could get down and dirty with all the members of McFly, The Wanted or JLS who would you choose?

Well according to a new poll by studentbeans.com it's actually the McFly lads (and not The Wanted or JLS) who are the most fanciable boyband.


We can exclusively reveal that Dougie, Tom, Harry and Danny came out on top when a bunch of students were asked which band they'd most like to (collectively) have sex with.


And girl bands The Saturdays and Girls Aloud even came in above of The Wanted and JLS (there must have been a helluva lot of guys voting too).


Writing this story has got us picturing going home with ALL of McFly, JLS and The Wanted. Dangerous.

McFly in Portrait!

McFly är med i denna månads Portrait.



Här är artikeln som är med i tidningen:

"McFly’s biggest frustration has to be how often critics pigeon hole the group as nothing more than boy-band pop. You see, the band is four guys, who all play their own instruments, write their own songs and for the most part play pop music. Well, if McFly is a boy band so were the Beatles. McFly has never shied away from playing pop music, in fact they’ve pointed out several times how proud they are to be considered pop. (quote) But unless I’m mistaken, most boy bands haven’t played a concert with Brian May (Queen), recorded with Roger Daltrey (The Who) or had 18 number one singles. The band has remained primarily a UK band with occasional concerts in Europe, Japan and South America. But their latest album, “Above the Noise” is bringing McFly to the rest of the world. If you aren’t yet a fan, you will be by the end of this article. And that’s the truth.

For fans, the beginning of McFly is well known. Tom Fletcher, singer and guitarist for Mcfly, had gone to an audition for the band Busted. He didn’t make the band but Tom was asked to write songs for the band (he would go on to write three number 1 songs for Busted). A little bit later, Island Records was holding another round of auditions for a boy band. Danny Jones, (vocals and guitar) had showed up, thinking it was an audition for a band like Busted. Tom and Danny started talking and began writing songs together. Tom commented “"It was really funny. Everyone else was doing stretches and stuff and he was just sitting there with a guitar."Once Danny and Tom had a good collection of songs, auditions were held for a bassist and drummer. Dougie Poynter (bass) and Harry Judd (drums) both met at the same audition and bonded over a love of the band The Starting Line. The rest, as they say, is history.


Tom Fletcher “ I like to think of myself as a modern day John McClane.”

McFly’s first album, Room on the 3rd Floor, was named for the hotel room where Tom and Danny spent two months writing songs. The album was an instant hit, debuting at #1 on the charts. Thanks to Dougie’s age, McFly became the youngest band ever to debut at #1, knocking off the previous record holders, the Beatles. "We jumped from being completely unknown to being screamed at," noted Harry Judd. "It was literally overnight fame." The band went on tour in support of Busted and then followed the next fall with their own headlining tour.


Danny Jones: "We like to strip Dougie, cause he's a sexy little boy"

Wonderland was the band’s second album which featured the song “All About You”, a single that hit number one and the profits were donated to Comic Relief. Following their work with Comic Relief, McFly visited Uganda, Africa, where they shot the music video for the cover of “You’ve Got a Friend”. The band was incredibly touched by the kids they met in Africa. "I just saw a kid getting an injection for malaria and it was just I was holding her hand - it was a little moment that upset me,” said Danny. When the boys visited a local school, Tom noted that “Hearing a whole school of kids here singing a song that you’ve written is amazing. Very emotional.” Later, at the Live 8 summit in Japan, McFly co-headlined with Good Charlotte and Bjork. 2005-2006 was a busy time for McFly. They not only released Wonderland and headlined a tour, but played in front of Queen Elizabeth at the Royal Variety Performance and costarred in the movie “Just My Luck” with Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine. "We're not actors to be honest," commented Harry. "But it's a great opportunity for us and to get our faces out there in America."The band’s songs were featured on the soundtrack and they played concerts in Los Angeles and New York. Much to the detriment of us American fans, the boys haven’t yet been back to perform in the states.

Motion in the Ocean was the band’s 3rd album, a cheeky reference to the skill level a girl wants from a guy in bed. The group released several top singles from the album and covered songs like Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” and Jellyfish’s “Baby’s Coming Back”. Fans appreciated the band’s decision to follow an arena tour with a small venue tour, called “McFly Up close and Personal” where they played in towns that weren’t on the arena tour. After the tours, McFly released a greatest hit album in 2007 and went on a tour to support the album.


Dougie Poynter: "I’d like to be reincarnated as a bra, thank you."

In 2008, the band made a major change when they left Island Records. McFly was having creative differences with their record label and wanted more control over the album. "There was just a creative difference thing. We felt like we were more in touch with the fans than this guy just sat in the office. We left on good terms and they understood why we were doing it. We just said, 'Yeah, let's try it on our own.' This album's not had any opinions forced on it apart from ours. We literally just made music we wanted to make and produced it how we wanted to produce it,” explained Danny. The band flew to Australia to record the album and released an early copy with “The Mail on Sunday”. “We can’t wait for our fans to hear it and we can’t wait to play it to them live,” said Harry. “These songs are by far the best we’ve ever done. We’ve never been happier.” McFly took their tour outside of the UK this time around playing in Europe and South America, before ending their round of tours by making a surprise appearance with the Jonas Brothers to sing Star Girl in London.

Above the Noise brought McFly back to their old record label, but with a great deal more creative control. The band worked closely with Dallas Austin and Taio Cruz in Atlanta, Georgia to write many of the songs. Fans were a bit unsure of the album at first, since McFly opted for a new sound with more dance music and smooth harmonies, but were quickly won over. McFly’s sound may change but the boys are still as talented as ever. The band made a point to reach out to their fans with this album, launching a brand new website titled “Super City”. The website features tons of interactive opportunities, webchats with the boys, new demo and photo releases and behind the scenes videos. Pioneers, the first members of the site, get early access to meet and greets and video premieres. In November of 2009, McFly released a 40 minute movie titled Nowhere Left to Run that featured many of the album’s singles. The tour has taken the boys to continental Europe as well as the UK and they have plans to return to South America as well.


Harry Judd: “I reckon i'm worth about 2.99 pounds- and that's with 50 per cent off.”

McFly wrapped up their “Above the Noise” tour last month but April 1st was a day few McFly fans will forget. The band used their official website, Super City, to give fans around the world a chance to watch a McFly concert live. As a long time fan myself, it was amazing to be able to watch the band in concert even on a computer screen. Details like this are why McFly will continue to be one of the great bands of my generation, because in a world where bands keep pulling away from fans to protect privacy, McFly is reaching out to their fans. Small wonder since the fans have stuck by through thick, thin and crappy critics. Tom even wrote “One For the Radio” as a way to let the band join fans in celebrating each other (and a little bit to tell off the critics. "It's kind of like, 'If you don't like us, we don't care,” says Tom. "'Cause we're the ones that get to hear 10,000 people sing the songs back to us. It's more positive, you know, uniting the people together that do like us, and saying if you don't, well, we don't care as we're happy and proud of who we are.” The lyrics remind listeners you can pretend to dislike McFly but in reality you’re singing along to every song. In other words, there’s nowhere left to run."
