2000, 2010, 2020 - it would certainly be logical. Plus special guests one year have a habit of being on the bill the next.

Re: PSB at Glastonbury !

Imagine being at Glastonbury, watching Hot Chip on the Park Stage having failed to persuade your friends to go and see The Killers - and suddenly your phone goes crazy with texts asking if you have just seen PSB walk out onto the Pyramid Stage. That happened to me on Saturday. I was at the complete...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I still think there’s a chance that we’ll have a new single in September to coincide with the Radio 2 show.

Re: Of course it might just be me........

The fact that they didn't announce the new album along with the Hyde Park show (unlike what happened with Super and ROH shows) makes me slightly pessimist about a September release. Hope I'm proved wrong though. I think it might be used as an album launch, or at least a preview track (the Years & Y...

Re: Of course it might just be me........

I always thought they should have included a longer 12” version of The Last To Die on the album... it’s far more conventionally structured than anything else on there.

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

Does anyone know which of the four 2018 ROH shows is/are featured on the release? I remember that 2 or 3 of the 4 shows were filmed. Now wondering if the final product is made of a mix of different days' shows or a single one. Also, does the content of the audio CDs exactly match the Blu-ray/DVD or...

Re: Reputation Reissue - Promo Advert

Cannot stop playing Arrested By You. Shame not a Tennant/Lowe production. The copy of Literally that covered Dusty's funeral mentions that as executive producers Neil & Chris "tinkered with a few of the non-PSB tracks. Neil also added the oboe solo (played on an Emulator) on Arrested by you". He re...

Re: Of course it might just be me........

I think the choice of studio and the old equipment is key here. I’m imaging Electric / Super crossed with the warmer tones of Behaviour... Helping soup up those poppier songs we know they have in the bag, and also softening those darker, harder songs they put to one side too.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

From Wikipedia: “The roll of notable recordings and the darkly sonorous sound quality, at once rugged and spacious of many of them, have given the studio near legendary status, especially within the post-punk and synthpop genres. In 2018, the studio was the subject of a documentary feature by filmma...
