Re: So Hard 15 years today! (20) (25) (30)

When this single came out I was going to a university. I remember going to the local music store, buying the CD single and then listening to it back i my dorm room. I wasn't quite sure what to make of it given everything we'd gotten before from them. The sound was definitely different and it was jus...

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

The auction ended and it doesn't look like there was a buyer and the discs haven't been relisted. So, unless the seller did some deal that didn't involve Ebay, I guess these went unsold.

Re: PSB - Radio 1 August 1991

I wonder if the BBC would give them another crack at it now considering the current situation.

Re: PSB DJ Culture Radio 1 - August 92

This would be a great time capsule of listening if you could post them all to Soundcloud or make available as a download somehow.

Re: What do you think PSB are going to do this year?

It shouldn't be "what do you think PSB are going to do this year?", it should be "what should PSB do this year?". Given that lots of people are doing streaming nowadays and stuff on youtube, what they should do is sit their butts down and simultaneously watch "It Couldn't Happen Here" and do a runni...

The one I ordered from Amazon.co.uk back in February finally showed up today, so I'm quite happy now.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

I'm really hoping that I will get my copy that I ordered from Amazon.uk. It says it should arrive by the 1st of July, so I hope I don't get an email saying, "So sorry, all of our stock is sold out." - especially when I ordered this back in March.

Re: New pet text - old cassettes

Interesting to note that the "Opportunity" cassette has artwork on the inlay - it looks like it's styled as a U.S. bank note with Neil and Chris in the center - next to them on the left would be one of the seals of the note. I'm going to assume the tape marked Robbie Williams was whatever they worke...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

So just to confirm, this would not be playable on a US bluray/DVD player, correct? Correct, it will not play on a U.S. bluray/dvd player. Now, there may be an exception. There are some Bluray / dvd players sold here in the U.S. that have a hack to them so that you can change the region. You can fin...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

UPDATE: Does not post to Australia. Presumably because they couldn't be bothered dealing with the stupid rules on GST on imports. Nah. In NZ we how have those nasty rules too. eBay, Amazon and Aliexpress all now charge GST when buying to an NZ address :twisted:. Staring back in April, I believe, Eb...

Re: Smithsonian presents: Project Pride feat. PSB

I was expecting them to show up somewhere earlier in the video, but they don't show up until around the 1 hour 55 min mark.

Re: US TOUR

Did you all see this coming? It was quite obvious and then all of a sudden, they announced the cancellation after some weeks of speculating. At least they're going to try and do the same venues so people can hold on to their tickets.

Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

I managed to record the audio of his 13 minute session. I wonder if this will be added to the PSB discography as a one off sort of thing.
