It worked yesterday. It was a cool-looking Introspective face mask that I was thinking of buying. It must have been withdrawn from sale.

Re: How many Tennant/Lowe-tracks?

I have the Please sheet music book and on there Later Tonight is just credited to "Tennant" (yup I saw this thread and just went to my shelves to check!), and 2/0 is credited to Tennant/Orlando as mentioned above. Thanks for confirming! Funnily enough I just had a sort out and found all my old PSB ...

Re: How many Tennant/Lowe-tracks?

I've checked my Please CD and the Further Listening CD. The original doesn't have writing credits, Further Listening states Lowe/Tennant. It's credited only to Tennant on the side B label of the original LP release - strange that the CD doesn't carry any writing credits! Don't own the remastered LP...

Re: PSB DJ Culture Radio 1 - August 92

Thanks for uploading. Was this the one when Chris referred to Sabrina Johnston’s “Peace” as a f-ing brilliant record, live on national radio?

Re: Very rare performance

I remember watching this at the time. I should imagine the only reason it happened at all is because the presenter Normski was going out with Janet Street-Porter. She produced the DEF-II yoof TV strand, of which Dance Energy was a part. It was a good show.

Best version? Take off DJ Culture and Was it worth it?? and replace with Go West and Love Etc.
If we're allowed to time travel now then they should include the absolutely brilliant single they release in September 2025.

Well to be exposed to Atom as one of your first ever tracks is some test ... after that it's all easy!

Well done CroMagnon :clap:

Re: Death of Ennio Morricone

An opportune moment to say that, film or no film, It Couldn't Happen Here is an all-time classic that will never leave my PSB top-10, and in no small part down to Morricone's arrangement. I don't think he did arrange it though, did he? Reading the rest of this thread it seems his contribution was t...

Re: Death of Ennio Morricone

Did Neil and Chris originally want Ennio Morricone to have some involvement with Jealousy, or did I imagine that? Yes they wanted him to arrange it :D Neil talked about it at the RAH concert here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcm3nz76YPo&t=48m40s Ah yes, I should have remembered as I was at that ...

The song that became ICHH. RIP Ennio Morricone x
Never heard that before - thanks! Did Neil and Chris originally want Ennio Morricone to have some involvement with Jealousy, or did I imagine that? I don't have my Further Listening booklets to hand.

Re: Odds that Chris/Neil read this forum?

They have seen the forum. Neil has described it as "bitchy" in the past, (which I don't disagree with at times). I doubt they'd take advice from us, didn't Neil say he reads Facebook comments sometimes? Oh the irony of Neil campaigning for privacy and against ID cards etc. but using Facebook! I can...
