Re: Burning the heather

Oh this is delicious! Agreed with the other thoughts expressed here so far Disarmed by the orchestral opening and then slammed by one of the phattest bass-lines we’ve heard on a PSB track for eons (yes I said ‘phattest’). Enjoying the dark rumbling techno overlaid with those electronic farts and bur...

The signed card is a nice gift! :)

Re: Bridge in West End Girls video

If you mean that attached screenshot then it's 100% the "South Bank". Start by the Royal Festival Hall and walk... it's changed A LOT since 1985. Us Londoners used to say the only good thing about the South Bank is you can see the North Bank. Doh I only blooming work on the South Bank right near th...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Effen has added this - not sure if you saw it Daveid and Ghost: ** 8.12.19 Update** I no longer skip Wedding in Berlin. It's not terrible, it's perfectly fine. As an instrumental it would actually be quite enjoyable, and there's bit of Chris brilliance near the end where the whole thing seems to sto...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Brilliant stuff Effen Really really looking forward to this album - only going on words every track sounds like it has something to get me all tingly (maybe not the last one but who knows) Sounds like Chris is at the heart of the album and I absolutely LOVE what you have written here about ’I don’t ...

The Yes box was more expensive...and included the instrumentals, so it´s the same situation ;) Well then I would have thought the Electric box set from The Vinyl Factory would to...
