Had Trevor Horn not made a complete mess out of It's Alright, Introspective would have been a great candidate for best album ever. As it is, it will only rank second for me.

I wasn't aware the Trevor had "made a complete mess out of It's Alright" That's news to me..

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

Your assiduous analysis of all things PSB's is always a constitutive read. I prognosticate to your further dissection of this brilliant album in their canon.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Very

I've never really liked Shameless. I love the sentiment behind it regarding pointless Z List fame, and you only need to look around now at the narcissistic morons from Big Brother, Love Island ect, but it always sounded like a PSB's parody - a Spitting Image song almost. Perhaps that was the point..

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

No wonder Chris had nothing left to give for the rest of their live career. He put it all in for the one performance. Let's face it, at any moment, there, Neil is about to announce "Foul stroke, four, Jimmy Savile." Drico. :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: Does it get any more 80's (and Imperial) than th...

I don't understand why they dislike this performance. Neil is clearly playing the character from the song and Chris' drumming is ace.

I wasn't aware they disliked this perfromance. Apart from Neil's white gloves it's great..!!

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Just a polite reminder that PSB's appear on the Top of the Pops repeat tonight on BBC4 at 19:30 performing Opportunities. If anyone could capture this I would appreciate it.

Great to finally have this appearance in remastered quality. One of their more memorable performances on TOTP's, even excusing Neil's white gloves..

Re: Glastonbury 2000

Looking back, this was the most confusing period of their career. They never looked as out of place and time as they did around 2000. That original Glastonbury performance was pivotal in what they were about to become and what they were forced to leave behind. Commercial returns were in decline and...

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

I'm assuming the Opportunities performance is from June 5th '86 which had Simon Bates with Ooh Gary Davies, so were good to go, folks. Whack those drums, Chris..!

Hopefully the performance of opportunities doesn’t fall foul of the mike smith rule?
We will get to see it - it’s presented by Simon Bates ;)
Does Simon Bates present the entire episode on his own though..? If he has a co-host and it is Mike Smith then we're screwed..
