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...

Exactly this. I think some of his answers could be considered twee or even tongue in cheek but I think they're genuinely how he feels.

Re: The Best Show

It made for some pretty amusing reading with some people aghast that PSB could be deemed better than their chosen band. Clearly Scharpling has a soft spot for the Boys. It was nice free exposure to have PSB trending on Twitter too. Hopefully it led a few people to discover they are still putting out...

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

The Boys had a big wobble from me around the time of Release and I started looking for PSBesque bands that sounded closer to their 80s sound, but I kept the faith. I got into Muse a while back and they went off the boil for me after a couple of decent albums. I think PSB have been the most consisten...

Re: NEW West End Girls 2x12" (Nov 2020)

So colour me confused...these aren't recordings from the Bobby O tracks are they? These sound closer to the Hague versions. What gives? I quite like the sound of them. The vocals are form the Bobby "O" ZYX production for sure... Really!? Wow, I need to relisten to my Bobby O stuff then. I always fe...

Have been on the lookout myself for this ... but with no luck :( Ended up going the DIY route - printed and framed a small version for my home office wall ... does the job for me.

Re: funko Pops

So close to get it right..just a little adjustments..and a consistent presentation...and they could have given us this: https://iili.io/2MNCtj.md.jpg Thanks Oznerol - I feel better for seeing that. Maybe I should buy a second set and "customize" them like the kids do with their Barbie dolls...

Re: funko Pops

I am relenting - sort of. I still don't like them, but my missus is buying them for me as a gift. After discussing it with her I determined that if they release other PSB ones (in other styles like Go West or Can you forgive her?) I will be kicking myself later for not collecting a complete set, irr...

lol - laughing stock more like! The more I look at these the less I like them.

My only hope is that Neil and Chris DID NOT have any say/input in this, because if they did I might be wondering if they need a sanity check.

Re: Single versions

Regarding “Heart” and how attentive the Boys are to their albums, I think they’ve said they liked the lucky accident of the “abrupt,” partially erased intro to the album version of “Heart.” They obviously had conflicted feelings about the song as a whole, though, as it underwent a radical reworking...
