Ummmm....wow....
I'm curious now, could we move to off topic discussion and have details about how magic this v4agina was?

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I would think/hope most passionate fans think more the way I do, and that those who have stronger opinions on here are less representative of what a typical "die-hard" PSB thinks. I hope if PSB ever browse these topics that they're grounded enough to realise that too. Oh I can assure you that in re...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

It's really divisive being a PSB fan isn't it? Yeah that amazes me too. Is there any other band whose die-hard fans are so divided over tastes and opinions about the band's music? The music (not lyrics) of I don't wanna just doesn't go out of my head these days! It is due to the richness of their p...

You think these lyrics are dull??

Re: New single - I don't wanna

It's really divisive being a PSB fan isn't it? We are all fans of different things and for different reasons. I think the best moment on Hotspot is the couplet Hoping for a Miracle - I Don't Wanna I do agree that the new single is weak on the lyrics side, but It sounds absolutely ace. On the other h...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I seem to recall Popjustice claimed the perfect single was 3.97 in length or something like that. 3.97? How does that work? :D No idea. I remember that Pop Justice stated that some while back and backed it up with examples. I'm suggesting it made sense. Maybe they assume 97% of 1 minute, so the per...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot

I'm doubtful: they announced the b-side for a fourth single from Hotspot . So there's no need to speculate about it, but I still have that idea on my mind that it could be The Lost Room as lead single of the famous dark techno album that will be called Disco5. But it's not from Hotspot, so I'm obvio...

Re: The PSB produced songs during the Stuart Price Era - Your opinions?

I have a list of what I think is every PSB produced song during the Stuart Price Era. If I've missed any please let me know and I'll add them in. The whole A man from the future and Musik are missing. So are the new songs from My beautiful Laundrette (except for No boundaries ). I can't speak about...

Re: Further Listening 2011-2012 missing tracks

More specifically it's when they BEGAN work on them. Most of these tracks end up being finished around the time of original release. I don't remember it that way, I'm pretty sure Neil said that "songs are included according to when they were recorded" like Harry wrote. Are you sure about it daveid?...

Re: You Are The One - Birds

Thats ok. to each their own. I just dont like overused cliche teen pop style lyrics is all. you are the one, the only one,and all that. Neil was def on automatic pilot with those 2 tracks. Musically Hotspot is not that bad at all, quite good at times. Lyrically I agree with you, the album is not ev...

Re: Behind the scenes of “Monkey business” (VIDEO)

Oh I'd love to know the name of the old Italian film that inspired them It's not old at all. It is "La grande bellezza" by Paolo Sorrentino, winner of the Oscar (Academy Award) in 2014. Why does the director say it's from the sixties then? Oh sorry, I didn't get it from this video, I read a Neil's ...
