Re: Your choices: the debut album that might have been ...

Greetings, I wouldn't change Please. I'm sure they knew what they were doing, holding off certain tracks until they were ready and able to do them justice. I absolutely love In The Night, moreso than at least half the songs off Please, but I think it coming to the fore in its extended form as the le...

Re: Drunk alternate video?

Ah... the grievance mongering is at full force, I see... Perhaps next we will learn from our hysterical friend that the director of the Drunk video was also transphobic, racist and ableist for failing to include a Namibian transgender amputee in the film clip. :roll: Maybe that was erasure. :dance: ...

Re: Pound Shop Boys - Coronation Street

Greetings,

Pound Shop Boys are great fun... good to see them get a mention here.

Here's a couple of mash-ups of songs you'll know...

Re: OMD - Pandora's Box (It's a Long, Long Way)

Greetings,

Other than being a good electronic pop song, I'm not seeing the similarity.

1. Electric. One of my favourite psb albums
2. Hotspot. A grower, some beautiful moments. Great album.
3. Super. Fun album, but not as good as the other two

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Greetings, This radio edit is better than the album version. Has that happened before? ( Setting the bar as an "edit" rather than being remixed for the single version... ) Arguably, Being Boring is. And, to my ears, I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore definitely is. I think Geoway...

If they're quarantined in the studio, they could always write and record some new songs. :)

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Greetings, It's a terrible time financially to be having a world tour, because you're paying people, whether you get a show on or not and it's not cheap to go on tour. Given the uncertainty, you can't know whether a show will go ahead or not, even days away. The New Order concert I was scheduled to ...

Re: The most New Order-esque PSB tracks?

Greetings, Are you guys going to do another PSB night? Good question. We're going to wait until the Coronavirus nonsense has stopped before proposing another tribute night. Next cab off the rank after that will likely be Depeche Mode or an act from the Britpop era. That said, we have linked our show...
