Re: Limited edition Electric vinyl coming from Vinyl Factory

After looking at all the pictures....I really am glad I didn't buy one. Sure I could've flogged it for a much higher price but that's not the point of it for me. After the uniqueness of the yes box and then the let down of The Most Incredible Thing box, I,promised myself enough was enough - and I st...

Re: MCMLXXXIX HOODY??

Pretty sure they were only black and had a coloured band above the (roman numeral) date - or am I getting mixed up with the fan club t shirt of old ?

Re: Electric DVD

They (PSB) filmed Miami for a webcast so there is an official filming but it's not very good. Loads of sweepy high camera shots and some multi picture screens...
I'm sure it was mentioned in one of their US interviews..

Re: GTA 5

Been playing it for a fair few hours over the last couple of days. It's quite a novelty hearing West End girls in a videogame...fits in nicely, even in the strip bars ;-) The pop music station does get a bit repetitive but I think it might add more songs as there seems to be a few more songs each ti...

Re: West End Girls (Scratch Mix)

The version posted is a "semi" scratch version (I've got it on the original ETV promo DVD) There is another scratch version as cyr2 said above - its much more edited with loads of zooming, explosions, strange colour effects etc (especially at about 1.26 (when they are standing and then wal...

Re: Limited edition Electric vinyl coming from Vinyl Factory

I hummed and hawed about the Yes box and when I decided just to get it I missed out.
Bought the TMIT box set and regretted it.

To be honest, gone are the days of me wanting every issue of every release (space to keep it all is the main reason) so think I'll pass and live with the consequences....

Re: Electric pre-orders

Just the luck of the draw I guess !
Would've been a better idea putting he signed cards in with the play button (as it was a limited edition) and the rest randomly with the cd's etc...:-/

Re: Limited edition Electric vinyl coming from Vinyl Factory

£500 ! Surely they're having a laugh... The yes and most incredible thing boxes were much cheaper and at least had something exclusive. VF probably just going on how much the Yes boxes change hands for now , Interestingly, looks like they still have copies of the most incredible thing box (even afte...

Re: Electric pre-orders

Well, got my reply. Apparently, even the unsigned postcards were limited and randomly selected. Sounds like a crap excuse to me, was there really that many preorders from the official,site (bearing in mind that there are allegedly 500 signed sets) Left a bit of a sour taste to be honest and might th...

Re: Electric pre-orders

I decided to email them....thought why not, it was advertised as postcards included and i preordered on 30th April. I'm not holding my breath, but it'll probably be the last time I order from the official site shop (unless its a release thats not available anywhere else) - couldve got the cd cheaper...
