About the Turing project: they want to record it, but they admit it'll be an expensive enterprise. Neil mentions Trevor Horn would be perfect for producing this project.

I suggest pledgemusic for these kinds of projects.
I'd be staying away from pledgemusic for the forseeable future. Lot of problems at the moment with artists not getting paid.

As for Turing, why not just release the Proms recording? The copy I have of it from the broadcast sounds pretty good and I'd imagine the proper BBC recording would sound spectacular.

Ordered via courier from the UK to USA but received no tracking number. Normal?
Same here. If it's "normal," I don't think it ought to be.

Thanks. Well, hopefully it shows up quickly in good condition.

Just got mine.

The 3rd Price album is 'going to sound slightly different' ...'a move on from the previous two'

That's pretty much all there is on the new album, except that they hope it will be released in September....

The Walliams interview is actually pretty good. Love the fact Chris had an xr3i. Boy racer indeed
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

The Walliams interview is great. It's an interview with a super-fan. You know, one of us.

Only other 'super-fan' that could fill 13 pages with 'chat' is Drico. Life's too short.

Thanks ghost,

Great to know the next album will be different from the last two. I’d like to see something closer to Yes.

oh no :( I want 10 tracks in the vein of "Dictator" and "Inside a dream", honestly. Something ominous yet melodic. Set in the nightclub, but make it smart.

It's surely going to be something they haven't explored/done yet, so wishing for this is a bit..wishful? :P

I constantly have it in my head, that the theme colour is going to be black and it's going to be more mid-tempo than the other two Price productions - I say lose the sugary pop of Super, the banging lasers of Electric and give us some deep electronics that Elysium was promising to be, when Invisible was first released. That would be a dream come true.
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

Not for me it wouldn’t. Invisible was one of the worst songs they’ve ever done. So boring and tuneless.

Something closer to Axis would be great!
Its taken me all of my life to find you

That "slightly" worries me... In spite of '90s trance influences Super was already very pop, so where else could they bring the uptempo Price formula? That probably means more guitars. (And shorter songs).

Having just read the Walliams interview, it's actually quite good. He comes across as one of us, a real fan. Some great anecdotes and a genuine love and warmth for the Boys.
