Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

Actually this format is absolutely perfect for a mini covid performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUjXGNBFrrU&feature=emb_title I love the vibe. You get a mini crowd reaction, and PSB can turn on the theatrics for the camera. It's a staged performance, just more like an episode of Seinfeld...

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

It's a really difficult time. And very sad how people trying to do what they can do stop the spread are expected to be 100% right in their approach by a minority of negative people on socials. In Australia the lockdowns and precautions are clearly working. They've recovered from 2 waves, and are hop...

Said it before, but Hotpot is the ultimate PSB “curse”.

I really wonder if they’d be cautious and postpone a real tour until way later, and maybe dispatch new material before hand.

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

I don't know. Might be alone here, but I think they stuffed up the re-release a few years back. It's a good enough track to chart for Xmas, but the mix tries too hard, and the vocals in the versus are so grindingly metallic Still hope for in a future year to release a new mix with warmer production,...

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

Re: There is a naughty boy here - PSB on Formel Eins

ah now I understand why the giggles

that band was pretty hilarious, wonder if N&T had a in-joke about comparing them to themselves. Pretty much opposites - wonder if this also influenced them to go "understated"

Pretty sure his bitterness comes from being trapped in that shell

They've had some great songs though.

Re: The unreleased single version of "It comes as a suprised"?

I like the song, but I don't see how this version is in any way more radio friendly.
