Re: Agenda: Top Three Moments

Ooh, yes, that string melody is heart-wrenching. Good call.

Agenda: Top Three Moments

What are your top three moments of Agenda? There's lots to enjoy, but I am particularly fond of: 1. The Russian bot choir muscling their way to the front in On social media , a wry nod to Go West and Love etc. 2. Neil's celestial, agonised backing vocals as the beats take over in The forgotten child...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

Moderator Comment: We've let lots go up to now simply because the subject matter of the EP meant much of the discussion was on topic, but I'm drawing the line now at the repetitive and repulsive abortion comments. People can have their political disagreements - and I'll let the odd intemperate comm...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I was wondering what people's thoughts are on trickling out the new album tracks like this. I've really enjoyed getting to know each song individually and then seeing them come together as a whole. I guess people would have the option of pre-listening or waiting until the final day and listening to...

Re: Where is the oddest public place you've heard a PSB song?

Well the place wasn't odd - a bookshop cafe. But it sticks in my mind. The shop sold albums too. It was the week of the Fundemental release. They played Soddam & Gomarrh over the speakers. Two elderly, quite prim and proper ladies listening. Cue much spluttering of tea and comments about the appall...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Agenda is Punk, isn't it? An EP released by an independent label that has songs no longer than a couple of minutes, designed to provoke and express dissatisfaction with society. It is the New Wave element in PSB's DNA in the ascendent. It's certainly been a while since they've been quite so provoca...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Is there some kind of PSB law now that states no b side or bonus tracks shall run beyond 3:33. If I have one major gripe with these tracks and most of the recent b sides is that they feel really truncated and don't have the capacity to develop or breathe. I mean Some speculation is over 6 minutes a...

Re: Where is the oddest public place you've heard a PSB song?

In a car with a college friend, a few years after graduating, going to a former classmate's funeral with the radio on. "Highway to Hell" was quickly followed by "It's a sin."

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

The people of this Community have had enough of big words from posters with extensive vocabularies saying they know what is best and getting it consistently wrong. So, in the spirit of the times, let me be clear: Agenda means Agenda. Despite our difference of opinion on this release, I hope to maint...

Hmm, Nancy wouldn't stump up the funds and the Mexican cheque is having trouble crossing the border. Very sad.

Good to see Drico resurface. Just hope his review doesn’t go too far in espousing praise that clearly isn’t warranted. A bit of balance would be appreciated.
Let's take back control of the thesaurus.

Re: Meanwhile... Drico, Drico Wherefore Art Thou..

I will build a great, great wall of prose about this EP, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words. Drico. It'll be a most beautiful wall...of text. :mrgreen: THE most beautiful wall. The best. Nobody does walls of text like me. And all typed by my very long and beautiful fingers. Let...
