There's also Wembley Stadium station which is on the Chiltern line from Marylebone. Where are you going to be coming from?

Re: Is the Wembley district safe?. Places to visit, eat... etc

Wembley's probably pretty safe, but, in the words of Sherlock Holmes, always carry a revolver east of Aldgate.

Re: Lost

I never said that extreme left-wingers and extreme right-wingers can find a centrist ground. I'm talking about SOCIETY finding its centre-ground so that extremism doesn't flourish. Yes, but only one of the sides is "extreme" (mostly). There is nothing extreme about wanting to save the pla...

Chris Release Q&A with The Face.
This is hilarious.
This is vaguely familiar from back in the day. I remember the bit about there being no underground anymore. He's proper pissed off. Did he have a hangover?

Re: Lost

I'm not getting into the whole left and right generalisations. All I'll say is that society has become completely polarised, largely because of the reinforcing nature of social media which is killing centrist politics, encourages extreme positions to flourish but with no genuine debate. I genuinely ...

1994 was probably the PSB's first duff year. Think we all though they'd gone a bit mad

Re: Disco 3 is 20 years old

I always view Disco 3 as the cancelled third and forth singles from release and their subsequent b-sides and pre-commissioned remixes. If Home and Dry and I Get Along were bigger sellers we’d have had the third and fourth singles and disco 3 would never had existed. I remember at the time, Neil was...

Re: Disco 3 is 20 years old

I bought it on release day, started listening to it on the train home from work, accidentally left the digipak on the train, bought another copy and then sent back the disc because of the well-known glitch on track one. Luckily I still had one copy sans digipak that I could listen to whilst waiting ...

Re: My scrapbooks

Wouldn't they just kill to have this amount of printed publicity in 2023? Thanks Dog, this is most interesting although I'm only reading the single and album reviews.

Re: Lost

While the dark techno album never emerged, fans remained excited by Chris’s idea. In 2020’s Annually, “Dan” wrote to ask specifically if these tracks would ever be released. While Chris couldn’t recall such a set of songs, Neil went further to put the notion to bed: “When he says “the dark techno t...
