Hey ya'll.

So I snatched up 447 copies of the limited edition. If anyone wants one they are 400 quid now.

What can I say? I love a good read :wink:
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

I’m saving my money for Chris Lowes pamphlet. Hopefully due next year (there’s a lot to edit down)
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

So annoyed regarding the talk and book signing event. My timing is impeccable as I'm out of the country on the 22nd.

Would happily pay if a kind forum member is able to get a signed copy for me on the day.

PM me please!

Will there be any commentary or just straight cuts of lyrics? Didn't see a mention of any additional content other than the introduction by Neil.

Could be wrong though.

Doubt it would even be a pamphlet. A flyer at best. Your comment did make me chuckle though..

A flyer? Now that would be luxury coming from Chris!

I suspect we will get a tweet instead... And one written by Neil on his behalf.

I'm struggling to see the point in this book to be honest, both lyrics and lyric commentary are readily available online and in the FL booklets, each to their own but not for me.
Give me Neil's autobiography and i'm all in though but this is just a bit "meh!" :?

He's never going to write his biography whilst he's still producing music, how forthcoming would he actually be considering he's reserved in interviews? He probably views autobiographies as the end point in a career and a vehicle for looking back on past glories. But re-releasing the same album multiple times in different 'remasters'?......now there's a dead horse that can be flogged well into the next decade :wink:
