Re: Happy new year

Yes, the UK. A country I'm embarrassed to be part of these days. 50,000 new Covid cases yesterday and 981 deaths. Shocking, shameful and terribly sad. I'm booked to see A-ha again. Already re-arranged to May from the original date of November. I can see the possibility of another re-arrangement give...

Happy new year

Really hoping that 2021 marks the start of the end of Covid-19, as (in this arsehole-run country, certainly) we're back to it being pretty much as bad as it ever was. It's boring, tiring and a constant worry on so many levels. Here's to a much better 2021. Fingers crossed! Happy new year! :) StevePSB

Re: If PSB top 5, who are other 4?

Electronic weren't exactly prolific, but lasted 10 years. I'd class that as 'legit'.

Definitely in my top 5 of all time and have been since I first heard their their first album.

Re: If PSB top 5, who are other 4?

Right now it'd probably read:

Ultravox
PSB
New Order
The KLF
Electronic

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

I did enjoy making FLAC files from all my albums and singles in the 6 months I had off work from April to September. It wasn't all knock out stuff (indeed, a small proportion is truly terrible), but it was a reminder of some of the brilliant B sides and some great mixes spanning their entire career ...

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

Although to me it doesn't feel as long as it obviously has been, I've clearly been on the rollercoaster a long, long time. I don't think PSB really put a foot wrong prior to and including 'Behaviour'. 'Behaviour' marked the peak for me. It was grown up electronic music and as I have said before, it'...

Ah, I see. I did allude to it, but I really ought to have read the thread in full!

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

"something just casual and functional" (which internal reference CDs indeed would be, unlike promos) would not need printing on the discs at all — it would be just generic CDRs with marker writing on them like this Bilingual internal reference. I've not been taking an awful lot of notice ...

I can't help on this, unfortunately. Server / software issues are in the hands of Steffen.

Re: Actually vs Introspective, choose the best one

Intro.

I can't explain why really, but 'Actually' is a tiny bit more rough and definitely not as cool / of the era. 'Introspective' is peak PSB, and the extended mixes are close to perfection.

Re: PMs

Yep, they only show as sent when they're read. If they've been there for ages and they annoy, then I'd suggest deleting them. BTW - Deleting only seems to work by clicking the X within the PM itself. Deleting from the PM list doesn't seem to work - or at least it wasn't working the last time I tried...
