Re: Fan Club Releases

I would buy any and all live recordings, particularly on video, that they released. They could do digital only if they really wanted. I would prefer DVD or blu-ray. I am disheartened at some of the puritanical viewpoints on their live performances. PSB have really elevated their live performances to...

Re: PSB Autograph Forgeries

Inconclusive. It does indeed look real, but it is hard to tell if it is real or not. When you have a scribble like Neil's, it would be a lot easier to forge. Being able to look at Neil's and Chris' together makes it easier to judge. If it is for sale somewhere like ebay, you can look at things like ...

Re: What do you think about PSB being part of a birthday party of a millionaire?

Good grief! He is just an oligarch and apparently not connected to Putin, and he is a fan, so there is no reason to boycott him. That said, we can regard him as just simply a millionaire. There is nothing wrong whatsoever with the playing to earn a pay check. True, they are financially better off th...

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

Stayed up until 2am to order it. But it was worth it. I hope it remains available for weeks on end so everyone can obtain a copy. I will happily buy all issues of Annually they put out, price no object. I would go as high as $75 from PSB direct...anything beyond that would need something very specia...

Re: Super tour 2018

I think you’re correct about that; I can’t see them releasing any new material until all of the reissues have been released and out a while. Fall 2018 at the earliest but more likely early 2019. Keen to see if that “dark techno ep/mini-album” they’ve mentioned on a number of occasions is next, if t...

Re: No Photos again !!!!

They are being interviewed by students, I assume, perhaps for a school publication or a school function. There is no need for them to dress the part for a project like that. It takes time and effort to do so and be camera-ready, so why go to the effort, especially with their known aversion to photos...

Re: VIDEO: The Chris Lowe you didn't expect to watch

It's fun and interesting. It is worthy of its own thread. Not everything needs to be piled into the Youtube thread. Some times it is okay to take a deep breath, count to ten, whatever it takes to calm yourself down. It's okay to let yourself be a fan and try to enjoy the moment and excitement of exp...

Re: PSB Autograph Forgeries

It looks genuine, but some people are very skilled at forging autographs, and this seems to occur more with photographs, although it can be on any item. A good indication can also be what the seller is offering. Do they have numerous other autographed items of dubious authenticity? That would be a m...

Re: "Annually 2017", pre-order now

Not sure why they need to make these limited releases. They don't make much money off of selling them as their prices are cheap relatively, but then they go for extortionate prices on ebay (over $100 for this, are you kidding me!?!). Maybe have it available to order for a few weeks and then send it ...

Re: PSB Autograph Forgeries

I agree -- forgeries. As a rule of thumb, I am very skeptical of most signed photos. Look at the seller's other items for sale, and if they have loads of signed photographs or other items, it is a strong indication it probably is not authentic. I don't go through photos and try to determine if they ...

Re: Would you like to see a PSB media movement in order to increase their sales?

PSB's days of having hits are past them. It is due primarily to their age and longevity. With some kind of gimmick, it is possible they may have one or two more hits in their career, but likely this will not happen naturally, regardless of how good the music is. I think it would be interesting to se...

Re: Up to 13 years of mystery and speculation nearly over....

That was my impression from talking about it at a meet and greet, due in part to the number of discs that would be required. However, I did speak in favor of vinyl as I certainly want it.

Re: Up to 13 years of mystery and speculation nearly over....

Why don't people chill out? They will tell us when they are able to do so.

Vinyl is highly unlikely, a remote possibility if even that.

Re: Could we consider "Undetow" and "Burn" were singles?

It was explicitly stated in Annually that Burn was to be a single, but that idea was nixed due to a fire in Oakland that killed 36 people. Neil and Chris didn't think it was right to do under the circumstances. So it very much was their intention for it to not be considered a single.
