Re: If PSB top 5, who are other 4?

Funny how PSB fans like New Order but the reverse seems to be less the case. I've seen some nasty comments on NOs Facebook page about PSB. That's because of indie (guitar rock) snobbery. I think it's also a Manchester thing. I don't get it myself ... PSB = Pop-synth New Order = Indie-synth Depeche ...

Re: Being Boring At 30

Hands down my favourite PSB track. I think like others have mentioned it resonated with me at the time of release - I was 19 at the time so in that awkward stage of leaving teens and entering a more adult and serious world. The poetry of the lyrics, the vocal delivery, the melancholy, the video, tha...

Re: funko Pops

HA - quite good.

Was thinking it would be the Go West outfit but nice to see they've considered the various options.

Don't think I'll be buying these though as not a fan of Funko Pops in general

Re: Suede Live at The Roundhouse w/Neil Tennant

Thanks for the details canveyboy

I remember going to see Suede at Watford and totally being floored when Neil came on stage to sing Rent with the band. A lovely surprise.
