Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Shame it hasn't been upscaled for blu-ray. The codec would have been better and the bitrate could have been increased over what DVD can offer even given the source being SD. Anyway, at least I can't wear this out like the VHS because I kept rewinding and pausing the video during certain sections. Fo...

Re: funko Pops

My Neil has finally arrived (post has been a very sporadic around here at the moment due to loads of staff at the sorting office being ill / isolating because of covid).

They aren't coming out of their little boxes, but they are so cute ;)

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I wonder if the Years and Years cover will be the theme tune or is that a bit too cheesy

I've just had notification from HMV that Chris has been despatched in the post today, but says nothing about Neil :(

Re: Fan edits

Stuck half the Pandemonium (the Stars and the Sun Dub) to the album version to give me an extended version.

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

I think you might be right there. If it had come out as a proper single probably would have been in this weeks top 40. Even though it was a Christmas number 1, Always On My Mind never seems to get classed as a "Christmas" song.

Re: If PSB top 5, who are other 4?

Good question. I've had to base it on how many albums I own by an artist.

#1 - PSB
#2 - The Prodigy
#3 - Erasure
#4 - Robbie Williams (this surprised me)
#5 - OMD

Re: Vote now for the greatest synth sound of all time!

I've had to vote for the I Feel Love bassline, even if this was made by accident, it's an iconic bit of synth. Shame we can't have a 2nd and 3rd place vote as I'd have gone for Blue Monday bassline second followed by West End Girls.

Re: funko Pops

Pointy hats probably most iconic, but can see the issue with the box. Maybe we'll get Chris in the Suburbia mode and Neil in Always on My Mind / Actually dinner jacket. Go West mock up does look good though.

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

Summer of '88. I liked the singles, but never really had a favourite band until I got a tape to tape copy of Actually from a friend and listened to it repeatably during a that years holiday to Mallorca. At that point I decided they were my "favourite band" and bought Introspective on CD (m...

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

Just to add some nearly useless piece of knowledge/trivia about all this subject...the "Always On My mind" music video includes ONE SHOT (1'' in lenght) that isn't included on the final movie cut!! So it´s impossible to re-create it with a 100% accurate result! We can get near to 99,5% an...

Re: Video Remasters

Out of all of their videos, Always On My Mind was the one I was expecting to see in that "HD" list because of the BFI work done on It Couldn't Happen Here. So who fancies ripping the Blu-ray disc and re-editing it to match the music video, presumably with the 4% PAL speed up ;) Actually is...

Re: Next single? (Will there be one?)

Disco 5 would be most welcome. Since the Price trilogy was already pretty "Strobes and Banging", maybe we'll have to have a more Release or Elysium style album before going full on again and getting Disco 5?

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

From Twitter: "The Limited Edition DVD/Blu-ray set of PSB’s 1988 feature film "It Couldn’t Happen Here" is now sold out at most stores. Details of a standard edition will be announced shortly." So I assume this would be a standard case dvd/blu-ray and not the book thing. Which to...
