Re: Annually 2020

They probably want to allow a little space between the release of the Monkey business single and the preorder.

Re: US TOUR

Many co-headliners on US double-tickets switch-off which one goes on first and which one plays last.

Re: The most New Order-esque PSB tracks?

Not really a PSB track, but Chris provided vocals for a cover of New Order's "Sub-Culture."

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

The fact that we're not getting the usual two b-sides per single leads me to believe there is another collection of songs, be that another album, side-project, or EP in the offing.

Re: US TOUR

I think the downside would be each act would perform a truncated set, so basically just greatest hits for a general audience and no fan favorites or deep cuts.

Re: US TOUR

That would be very surprising as Barney is not a fan of playing more than a handful of dates at a time. Having said that if it were to happen, having just seen New Order in Miami, I think they would be a natural fit. An encore with "Getting Away with It", "Patience of a Saint", and "Disappointed" wo...

Re: Show your love for “Hoping for a Miracle”

One of the best on the album. I'm also hoping for an old-school eight or nine minute extended mix to expose parts of the track. Hopefully we'll get this as a mix on a forthcoming single.

Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

Gary Numan recently got to #2, during the busy autumn season no less, due to the strength of pre-orders generated by his "watch the album get made" campaign. Given their strong fanbase, PSB would almost certainly make #1 if they decide to use a similar strategy in the future.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

First listen: The first seven tracks sound ace together! This analog production is different for them and gives these first seven tracks the sound of their early b-sides such as "In the night", "That's my impression", "Was that what it was?", "A new life", and "I get excited (you get excited too)" i...

I found out today I have 20 mins on the phone with Neil (I’m presuming just Neil) on January 10. If there’s anything you want to ask him that you haven’t already sent to Literally, post it here and hopefully I’ll still have time to ask him.
So Niall, what did Neil have to say?

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

I would have gladly bought a few copies for "Decide" and the CYA mix as they're not available on CD. I don't understand the logic of putting two tracks that are widely available on the same format on there; won't be bothering.

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

It would be interesting to know the reason of cancellation. Did they block it because it was still unfinished or they were unhappy with results? Good old times when they were not aware of the fact that people in Japan had an access to Miserablism a year before its official release as a b side... I ...

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

I remember this time before Super was released these sites (cdjapan and hmv.co.jp) also stated that Japanese edition will have 1 bonus track. But at the day of release appeared that it have regular tracklist. So anything can happen. The "Super" bonus track was listed as "The lost room" but that was...

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

Wayne, I check CD Japan every few days to see if they've updated their listing and nothing yet. A guy over on the Steve Hoffman forums said he was told the tracks were going to be "Decide" and "Decide" (CYA remix), which would make sense as there was no CD single, but he didn't say what his source w...

Re: Questions for Neil

Do they ever plan on releasing the "dark techno" tracks written during the "Super" sessions?
