It's not red, and there's not another 98 of them, Gordy, we have a problem!

As the Gordy B and BO rock circus rolls into the Netherlands this week, the boys nearly came unstuck with their planned release of the third single from the highly anticipated covers album, due out next month.

The success of the boys singing career's is one to be cheered. Their reworked cover of Pulp's 'Common People', as 'Common's People', shot straight to number 1 on it's release a month ago. And there it has stayed, with their first single 'WAR' sitting at number 2.

Celebrities from far and wide have been lining up to see if they can perform with the British PM and his American counterpart. The latest is Fergie.

President BO told us "to be fair, when we first took the call and agreed to the duet, myself and Gordy thought it was Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas, but when we arrived at the studio to lay down our vocals, we realised it was Sarah Ferguson."

"Yeah, we were a bit disappointed, to be fair," said Gordy B, "but we got through it, Sarah's vocal's came out very well."

The single was to be a reworking of Nena's 1984 hit '99 Red Balloons'. Retitled '99 Red Buffoon's', it was to be a list of 99 red headed idiots. "We thought we could cash in on a little of the furore that was surrounding the whole anti-ginger Doctor Who farce," said BO, "and having it sung by a red-head was just genius on Gordy B's part."

"But to be fair," he continued, "when we came to write the lyrics we kinda ran out of idiots after Catherine Tate, that Bianca bird from Eastenders and Chris Evans. Somehow '4 Red Buffoon's' just didn't have the same ring to it."

So the lad's opted for a cover of House Of Pain's 'Jump Around'. BO takes the lead for this track with Gordy B freestyling various hoots and heys in the background. There is an extended mid-section where Fergie let's rip with lyrical madness.

With lines such as 'Pack it up, pack it in, let me begin, I came to speak, argue wit' me, das a sin, I won't tear the statute up, punk you'd better back up, try and cross me and my whole crew will smack ya!' BO is obviously making a stern statement to his critics.

"If the punk's want to play, then I'm the sort of cat that bite's back," he said (I didn't understand either, I'm just here to report the news!)

The performance of this single has critics worldwide waiting with baited breath, could this possibly be a third consecutive number 1? Could this be the world's first group with official number 1, 2 and 3 spots in the UK and the US simultaneously?

We await the result this Sunday.
