I guess they could.

Didn’t you intimate they’d been in negotiations with Glastonbury to bring either the Electric or Super show and they’d failed to agree terms?

Re: Glastonbury 2000

I was there and loved it ( wasn't sure about "Positive role model" which was new to me but trusted it would grow on me. I was a fan of Cerys so I was pleased to see her too) but in retrospect it seems very strange how they were just another band somewhere on the bill politely received, whereas now ...

Re: Glastonbury 2000

I was there. They were on in the ‘sunset’ slot, before Travis. The crowd was patchy to begin with but filled up. They weren’t actually that well received down the front where I was standing. I remember people throwing things during Paninaro. The rest of the bill was quite conventional and they weren...

The discussion was about the CDs though. Even with the official store postage charges they work out cheaper than Amazon (£11.99 each vs £13.99).

Re: Reissues project

sad, but this is the reason i no longer order from the official site. Amazon have them with me on release day, not nearly a week later. Yes, but you do pay more. May appear to be more expensive. I was going to order them off the PSB site but found they bump up the price due to delivery costs, there...

Re: Neil and Chris spotted at the Helsinki Railway station

I remember Neil wearing shorts onstage with Electronic at Cities In The Park festival in Manchester in 1991. And of course both he and Chris wear them during the opening section of Performance.

Re: The triology and its nfluence on tours (lazers and more lazers)

Other than Price being confirmed as the next album’s producer, I don’t think we know anything more about the direction they will be taking. At various points they have said they have batches of songs that are “pop”, “ballads” and “dark techno”. If they have 22 tracks demoed I think we can assume tha...

Re: 'Unfortunate Connotations'

I heard an interview with Neil and Chris recently about deciding on the title for the Super album. Neil said that they had a title which they decided against as their manager said it could have 'unfortunate connotations'. They said they may use it in the future. Any guesses as to what this might be...

Why on earth it wasn't recorded I will never understand.

Will instead have to rely on my fading memory cells for this one.
The setlist was split between the Concrete show and the Radio 2 Elysium concert, so nothing exclusive I don’t think.

Now the shows have finished I wonder if the merchandise will be made available from the official PSB store.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Given the poem must be exclusive to this book I guess it follows that some of the 100 song lyrics may be unreleased too.
