Re: "Suburbia" Revisited, Part I

Interesting read, but you made the wrong assumption that the 2019 "live" remix is a PSB remix, but it's actually a fan-made remix (and a good one in that)

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

Nice, 4 new tracks. The two old ones might be Friendly Fire and Run Girl Run.

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

I'm watching the Live In Rio concert now. There's a guy with a Nirvana shirt singing with West End Girls. The death of grunge couldn't be symbolized any better.

Re: Why is Agenda on CD not sold separately?

It is available digtally and on vinyl. I know, those are not my favourite media, but at least you can buy it physically on a crackling plastic disc.

Re: New Literally

The Walliams interview is great. It's an interview with a super-fan. You know, one of us.

The bluray works perfectly on my PS4.

I like Chris' remark about Give stupidity a chance being in a major key: "That's the difference between Erasure and us - we usually write in a minor key while they usually write in a major key"

Re: New Literally

About the Turing project: they want to record it, but they admit it'll be an expensive enterprise. Neil mentions Trevor Horn would be perfect for producing this project.

I suggest pledgemusic for these kinds of projects.

Re: New Literally

On quick reading, the annotated interview is pretty interesting. All 3 people involved (Chris L, Neil T and Chris H) comment on this interview.

Also the info on the 4 Agenda tracks is pretty fun.
Going to read it in full tonight. Jay!

Suburbia's extended mix.
It's A Sin's over the top 10 seconds and counting intro

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

A few weeks ago I did a marathon of PSB DVDs and concerts. That was fun to do. Looking forward to this concert registration, since it has some of my favourite tracks in it (to be specific: Burn and In The Night).
I really hope it has audio commentary, but I haven't seen any confirmation that it has.

So Hard's intro was quite good. But yes, Left To My Own Devices is probably the best.

Re: New Literally

I've got an email that my order is dispatched. I did choose the fast-delivery option, so I hope it'll be at my house this week.
