Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

The two albums had a modus operandi which they both successfully accomplished - "Elysium" to sound "L.A." and "Hotspot" to sound "Berlin". If you listen to these albums and are not transported to those places, I'd be astonished. (and for the record I have nev...

Re: West End girls: Reaction Video

Yes, PSB have started to appear in reaction videos. This person has quite a few videos. She likes Domino Dancing, Love Comes Quickly and Heart a lot, but doesn't get West End Girls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ronY9Sbzp7s&list=PLROCXctbumJqDr4t6xqxfwTs9Ebm_vdq1&index=2&ab_channel=Si...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

In 30 years time, Hotspot will be regarded as their 21st Century Behaviour. Already is in my books, but agree that given time people will look back on this more favourably. I had a similar reaction to "Elysium" - I really liked it upon release as a whole album, and got a sense that it wou...

Re: West End girls: Reaction Video

Its nice to see PSB getting some exposure in these reaction videos. It potentially opens the door to people of a certain age to their brilliance.

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

I've gotta agree with the previous two posters - it's still my favourite of the trilogy and one of my overall favourites since Very. It has a darker, sadder quality like the best bits of Elysium or Fundamental - but its shadows are exciting, the way Actually or the Behaviour era B sides are. When W...

Re: funko Pops

Yay, Amazon order arrived today here in SW Ontario, Canada!

I was also skeptical about these but I am glad I got them now. Bring on the versions with Go West helmets!

Re: funko Pops

I've just had notification from HMV that Chris has been despatched in the post today, but says nothing about Neil :( I had an e-mail to say that both of them are on their way. :D Ditto from Pop-In-A-Box (Canada) I have a secondary Amazon.ca order which I have yet to cancel, as my backup plan....tho...

Re: funko Pops

I don't really understand this staggered rollout of these. People in the USA seem to have received theirs. I'm in Canada and no order shipped yet (Amazon.ca says release date in a couple of days with Neil and Chris' release date on entirely different days - WTF?), and in the UK, these aren't even re...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

Looking forward to this although I worry and suspect that PSB wont get much more than a fleeting acknowledgment (the title of the show of course, and maybe a couple of tunes in the background would be my guess). Bear in mind that Neil didn't officially come out until the Very era - it might come acr...

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

Honestly, I'd rather see the entire concert postponed again for another year, as much as it hurts to say that. Right now it's bad optics for any band and the organizers/venue to be considering anything other that a completely safe concert experience. They wont want to be responsible for a super-spre...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

Olly on Graham Norton discussing the show With ‘It’s a sin’ likely to get a bump in exposure ... I sense a shameless opportunity for the PSB to cash in with another lockdown remix [emoji2957] :up: THIS! :up: Neil and Chris need to make this happen. The Barfly version is super, so a new version of I...

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

Said it before, but Hotpot is the ultimate PSB “curse”. I really wonder if they’d be cautious and postpone a real tour until way later, and maybe dispatch new material before hand. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-55536355 This is an interesting article about the deadline looking to have...

Re: funko Pops

Amazon Canada still says these are pre-order with a release date of mid-january.

Presumably each territory has a different release date, otherwise I'm kind of screwed now.

To the critics: I thought it hadn't been posted before.
