Re: The Theory about Disco 5

Yes, I think "Disco 5" with tour mixes could be an excellent cross between a remix- and greatest-hits albums. Since there's no actual hits in the past decade, the only way to upend "PopArt" is a four-disc compilation, or a complete singles collection, so this is a nice compromise...

Re: PSB DJ Culture Radio 1 - August 92

Mixcloud is great for these kinds of things!
Mega.nz also provides great streaming/download capabilities. Heck, even Google Drive is pretty good for this.

Electric, that's all. And I won't be judged, since I wasn't even alive in their Imperial era.

Re: IT COULDN’T HAPPEN HERE BLU-RAY SCORE A SEMITONE LOWER

It was discussed before in another thread, it's due to a mismatch between 25fps and 24fps, which has something to do with the formats. If we're being extra precise, 25/24 is less than a semitone difference, but very close to one!

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

James Ford has produced Jessie Ware's new album 'What's Your Pleasure?'. A sublime pop album that nods to many artists and references, yet sounds contemporary. He has beautifully combined electronics with elegant orchestration and production, not a million miles from PSB. Listen to 'The Kill', the ...

Re: Cicero - Love Is Everywhere Demo

Well, the tracks weren't exactly Neil Tennant cowrites, and were pretty weak tbh. Great production obviously, but never got what they saw in him.

Re: Battleship Potemkin - True, accurate sync

Thanks for sharing, coufy! I remember downloading a documentary with a bit of that recording, which I couldn't watch without subtitles, but that is perfection! Always thought it was so visually arresting.

Re: Video Remasters

Gotta be honest - this looks like ass. All they did was a slight AI upscale, they didn't really go back to the tapes.

Oh, I forgot to chip in - would love "Hoping for a miracle" or "Only the dark".

...to you. I'm actually very happy with "Monkey business" and "I don't wanna", content with "Burning the heather" - the only dud was "Dreamland", pretty flaccid.

Annie has like 7 good tracks, and the new one is boring. But yeah, Stefan is cool! He did deny PSB were an influence on him a decade ago, hopefully that's changed by now.

Behaviour is the best one, which immediately invalidates this poll.

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

I rebuke this thread!
Sounding more like Kraftwerk would be right up my alley, but I don't want any particular direction for them. As long as the songs are good, you can dress them however you like.
