Re: Further Listening 2011-2012 missing tracks

“songs are included according to when they were recorded, not when they were released. More specifically it's when they BEGAN work on them. Most of these tracks end up being finished around the time of original release. I don't remember it that way, I'm pretty sure Neil said that "songs are include...

Re: Further Listening 2011-2012 missing tracks

“A certain “Je ne sais quoi”” is on the Fundamental Further Listening disc as it was recorded in 2007. This is one of the rules of the Catalogue range; songs are included according to when they were recorded, not when they were released. More specifically it's when they BEGAN work on them. Most of ...

Re: Lost mix tape including PSB washes up as art 25 years later!

It's a nice story isn't it. And a timely advert for the durability of the cassette tape.

BUY HOTSPOT ON CASSETTE. IT CAN SURVIVE 20 YEARS AT SEA AND IT'S ART!

Re: 4th single off Hotspot

I really don't understand the liking for I don't wanna. I find it to be an incredibly dull, repetitive b-side about nothing much at all. Like In his imagination but worse. I would say Happy people is definitely the best option for a fourth single. I expect it will coincide with Annually - there'll p...

Nice interview.

The bit where Neil comments on Mary Poppins being the start of psychedelics is one of my favourite things. 😂 I want a psychedelic instrumental track by them with samples of that strung throughout.
😎
A visual sample in a recorded track? How does that work?

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

First she is my wife and it is not up to you to question who she is or not; she can do or say whatever she likes to me. Stop now and know your place dumbshit. Secondly, she does not forbid me; she just feels overwhelmed when I play a song twenty times back to back at the top sound of my loudspeaker...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

I so severely cringed when I first heard it that for only one disastrous (and shameful) moment, I thought throwing all my PSB collection out of the window to the street. Now I am addicted to the song; cannot stop playing it five or six times a day; if my wife lets it, I can play it all day long :) ...

There is bound to be a Greatest Hits to accompany the tour.

So the chance of muddying the water with a Disco 5 alongside Hotspot strikes me as VERY unlikely.
Pretty sure they've confirmed there won't be a greatest hits album

Yep there's been no official confirmation of Disco 5 or any evidence for it.
