Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Going back to DJ Culture and Was it worth it?, I loved the presentation of these singles - the videos for both were great in their differing ways. The playfulness of the DJ Culture video contrasted to its relatively serious subject matter and was a counterbalace to the rather po-faced miserablism o...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Cricket. Totally pointless at test level where after five bloody days the result is very often a draw, or a famous victory is ruined by bad light or rain... reasonably exciting in the 50 over version as they have to attack. And at least it isn't the American national sport of rounders we played up ...

Yes it's very good. Took a while to sink in.

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

I like both singles - a lot. They suffer a little because they signify the end of the greatest collection of singles in pop history. Indeed, I'd argue that Jealousy suffers from the same fate, as, to a lesser extent, does Where the streets have no name/Can't take my eyes off of you. The bubble popp...

Re: Somewhere DVD

Each to its own of course, but I really appreciate physical product. A download with a JPG of the cover is just not the same for me. I like the needle drop of vinyl, opening a CD player's tray to put an album or CD single in it or watch something on TV from a physical disc that I own and cannot be ...

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

I like DJ culture a lot. It's obviously not a stomper but it's sophisticated lyrically and sonically and as people have said the bridge is marvellous. Was it worth it is probably the weakest track in Discography, a sort of prelude to the Very era but lacking the charm. They must have been b-side the...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

As the sun goes down
And the last wicket falls
She removes his box
And frees his balls

She passes the crease
Her arm goes across
To exposed middle stump
She gives a full toss

"Very" artwork - yes, but put me more in mind of Yesterday, when I was mad sleeve with the straightjacket design initially.
A cricket blazer is a straitjacket when worn by an English cricketer. 112 all out I believe?

Love the fact that people are already deciding they won't like it based on the short description or the bloody font! This forum sometimes.... :wall: :wall:

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

That image and title is the most un-PSB thing they've ever done. I mean I'd expect to see that hanging on some wall of a cottage in Country Life magazine. What's next? A synth operetta based on Betjeman's poetry? Omg it’s absolutely balls deep in Pet Shop Boys and what they’re all about, both desig...
