Before anyone had ever heard of Posh, Scary, Baby, Sporty and Ginger, they were a group of five – Victoria Adams (now Beckham), Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell — vying for their first break in the music business. They were raw and irreverent. On July 1, 2008, Raw Spice: The Unofficial Story of The Making of The Spice Girls DVD will be released. Raw Spice shows the pre-fame Spice Girls, highlighted with never-before-seen footage of the girls candidly discussed their ambitions and fears, as well as their trademark outrageous behaviour and some titanic blowouts. This collectible DVD boasts special bonus features including home movie and rehearsal footage from 1994.
Raw Spice is a documentary film charting the formation of the Spice Girls in 1994 and what it takes to be the world’s best selling girl band in history. Filmed the day of their auditions and for the next two years leading up to their first hit single “WannaBe,” we are with the quintet in their tiny house in Maidenhead, England, (25 miles outside of London) as they rehearse day in and day out, striving to break through. As the girls gain popularity, they must choose between their first manager or someone else for a faster track to stardom.
