Re: Tom Watkins dead

His unfortunate passing is strangely timely for those who will read the new edition of the ‘Literally’ book. If I remember correctly, the breakdown of their relationship is subtly covered in that book. Tom’s own book actually revealed very little too on the ending of their association – no hatchet j...

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

I wonder if ‘At rock bottom’ is about George Michael?

Re: Hotspot era design

Not quite Hotspot era design, but they were spotted walking through London yesterday by somebody on Twitter. This picture would actually make a good sleeve! https://twitter.com/damnfinelad/status/ ... 19169?s=21

Re: Forthcoming PSB TV and radio appearances...

They are performing at the National TV Awards next Tuesday at the 02 in London. Think it’s broadcast on ITV the same evening.

Re: New/third single

Like the image. When was the last time they appeared on a sleeve? Reminds me of the Paninaro ‘95 12”.

Re: A new decade a new phase: 20's

Two more studio albums after SP trilogy wraps up, selected live shows in England and the Turing thing in between. No more lucrative but creatively pointless world tours, please. How is a world tour pointless - giving fans from Budapest to Budokan the opportunity to see them? Because they aren't set...

Re: New magazine: Classic Pop Presents PSB

I managed to buy one in WH Smith in Leeds today. They had three copies on the shelf.
It's actually better than I expected it to be.

Re: Reissues project

It's nice to have all the b-sides, extra tracks etc. all playing in the same quality - whether it's massive improvement or not. If I put together the FL cds as playlists in my iTunes, you'd have all sorts of volume and quality levels!

Re: Reissues project

Just picked mine up from HMV - including the prints. Not unwrapped my Elysium vinyl, but it looks very much like it is still in the gatefold sleeve, like the original double-album design.

Re: Sad news - Iain Bell

Awful news.
Good to see they have reached their target to allow the guy a funeral.
