Re: Annually 2020

So now that the origins of the samples in "Electricity" and "To step aside" are revealed, what's left to ask Neil & Chris about?

About Oslo 19th June:

This is an outdoor event, and on 19th June the sun doesn't set until 22:43. I hope PSB are aware of this.

Re: What's the lead single of "Electric"?

Greetings, Maybe some lyrics? There are too few of them in "Axis", so it seems like a strange lead single to me. I don't remember quantity of lyrics being a criteria for whether something is a single. That's news to me. As for being a "strange lead single", I thought Winner was ...

Re: What's the lead single of "Electric"?

But "Inner Sanctum" came only as a digital dowload prior to the album, and Geowayne has listed it as an "album taster" (http://www.geowayne.com/newDesign/extras/chronology.htm).

Re: What's the lead single of "Electric"?

Surprised you didn't build a poll into the new topic! Anyway, I'd say Axis... it had its own artwork, a radio edit, a cracking film clip, an actual physical 12" single... what more does something have to do to qualify as a single? Maybe some lyrics? There are too few of them in "Axis"...

Maybe it's a bad timing for this question in these Hotspot days, and I've tried the search function without success. Anyway, here it comes: Which track is considered to be the lead single of the album "Electric"? All other albums have quite obvious lead singles, but with Electric I'm in do...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Hotspot has also a geological meaning:

"volcanic regions thought to be fed by underlying mantle that is anomalously hot compared with the surrounding mantle" (causing volcanoes).

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

"Dreamland" got the score of 6,369 on Geowayne's rating project.

Only five PSB-singles have scored lower: "Numb", "Before", "Beautiful people", "Together" and "Winner".

Re: Poll ends soon on whether you want PSB to eventually have a "retirement tour"

What the poll actually tells us is that 51,6 % don't mind PSB doing a retirement tour.
