Re: Electric Tour 2014 thread

I'm very glad to see that a Hong Kong date has been added on 26 September. The tickets are £100 though! Seriously?! :shock:

Re: Panto bliss speech remix

Anyway, I thought British people respected those that carry themselves in a reserved manner? *nit-picking alert* Panti Bliss is Irish and was talking about his experiences in Ireland. I for one was thrilled to get a free new track out of nowhere yesterday. I thought the speech was powerful and hear...

Re: Not very positive mums

And Neil is on the record as saying that the Pets would like to work with Stevie Nicks.

This is a very weird thread in parts, by the way. It's not always easy being a female Pethead round these parts...

Re: Love is a Bourgeois Construct CD release discussion

My CD hasn't arrived in Hong Kong either, more than three weeks after apparently being despatched. I think I am done ordering from the official PSB store. Electric took forever to arrive too. It's easy to blame Royal Mail, but I get lots of other mail from the UK and it always takes 7 - 10 days.

I always thought it was the Raymond Revue Bar in Soho, although I could be wrong.

It was like a flight simulator. It moved in time with the video.

Were there 3D glasses? I can't remember.

Re: The Liberation Ride

I went on the Liberation ride at some shopping centre in Essex, if memory serves. You had to buy your tickets in HMV. The ride made me feel rather queasy!

Thanks, I thought BBC iPlayer doesn't work for us mortals outside the UK

Re: Is Chris an aspie?

Well, believe it or not, I can give you what I believe may be Chris's own view on this! In his "solo" talk about the Boys at the National Portrait Gallery, Philip Hoare referred to the fact that even if Chris knows you, he greets you as if it is the first time. Philip said that he thought Chris may...

So 9 out of 14 concerts are festival performances so far.
Oh, they're doing Summer Sonic again! I had such a good time seeing the Pets there in 2007. :o

Re: Chris Lowe: The royal family deserve to be publicly exec

I remember that. It was probably in the mid-80s, if I recall correctly, maybe when Prince Andrew married Fergie. Chris also said it in jest.
