The Lynch family in Ireland is celebrating an unusual double whammy -- they've seen both their son's and twin daughters' bands wrack up Number One records the same week on two different U.K. charts.
Reuters reports that Shane Lynch, a member of Boyone, is enjoying the No. 1 spot on the albums chart with Boyzone's "Where We Belong," while his 18-year-old twin sisters, Keavy and Edele, singers with the new group B+Witched, have debuted at the top of the singles list with their song, "C'est La Vie."
The B+Witched record was released this week in Britain with much fanfare, partly due to a strong promotional campaign launched by Epic Records, but also due to strong reviews. The music industry trade journal Music Week called "C'est La Vie" the brightest pop debut since the Spice Girls' "Wannabe."
The family is rejecting the inevitable comparisons, however. "B+Witched are more like the girls next door," mom Noeleen told the "London Times."
