Re: New EP on April: Agenda

There’s one fan’s review that’s noticeable by its absence. What happened to bohemians anyway?

On the other hand, I’m fully expecting the Drico review of Agenda to drop this weekend.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Lyrically it’s a Spitting Image song. Musically it’s from the same range as Hit and Miss (although not as good), I Started A Joke and Winner. It’s got strumming guitars! There’s a certain innocence and purity to the tune that’s appealing. The lyrics are biting and the music is not remotely edgy; a c...

Forum quoting!

I can’t take it any more. When is someone going to fix the f***ing forum quoting so it works when you’re not logged in! It’s been broken for months. Just what is the problem?

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

I think I’ll skip this. I guess I’m not the completionist I used to be. I never watch or listen to recordings of the live shows. The ROH show was unbelievably thrilling in 2016, slightly less so last year (just through familiarity) and now I’m ready for new music please. For those that were waiting ...

After years of only having one page, with not a lot of detail, the Farrow Design website is fully functional. http://www.farrowdesign.com We must have very different ideas of “fully functional”!

Re: PSB & Tracey

At last! We know Tracey’s a fan and would like to work with the boys. I’m going to stick my neck out here…I for one would love an album where every track is a PSB/Thorn collaboration.
