Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Regular hardback signed copies via Waterstones for £14.99.

The unsigned copies will be rarer at this rate... :wink:

Re: Trevor Horn - London show with special guests

I got tickets, don't know what to expect. I've bought one too. I saw Trevor's supergroup "The Producers" a few years ago now at Barfly. He likes playing covers of the hits with which he's associated either as a player or producer! Expect Slave to the Rhythm, Two Tribes and Video Killed the Radio St...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Faber and Faber just checked that my card was valid but haven't called on the funds. They have advised me by email that will charge my card when they send the order to the warehouse for picking. I think my (low) cash will last me till payday on 26th September now! Just a heads up for other fans who ...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Sounds like it will be the same physical book as that sold on the website but without signature. Strange really... they should have kept it truly exclusive by not making it available elsewhere other than the PSB online store. Perhaps the publishers have a few surplus stock units that they need to s...

Re: Elysium vocals

It's been probably discussed before, but does anyone else find the Elysium era vocals particularly strange? I know they were going for a smooth sound, but it ended up sounding clunky and weird on that area, a bit like the 1989 tour thing with the black backing singers doing all the harmonies. Been ...

Re: Are we content ?

In the "Super" studio diary Neil mentioned three songs they wrote during those sessions which he said they're saving for a "pop" album after they release the third Stuart Price installment. This "pop" album was further mentioned in interviews and it was suggested they would like someone like Jeff L...

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

A Dictator Decides really didn’t work for me, could barely hear the vocal. It was a toilet break opportunity for a number of people. Yes. The Dictator Decides, even though it's relatively new, actually reminds me most of PSB circa Performance. Neil in a costume, arty visuals and an acid house bass ...
