Re: Producers suggestions for a new PSB album

I am not sure how much freedom these producers are truly given to push away from the "PSB sound", considering they are so commanding it might feel a little intimidating. They work with producers who have made records they like. Therefore it seems reasonable to assume they’re open to havin...

Fortunately my partner had actually got sent the pre-sale link for Brighton. It didn’t work for them, but it did for me and I was able to buy two general standing tickets.

Re: Producers suggestions for a new PSB album

For example, when he [Julian Mendelssohn] made the production of I Want to Wake up, he knew it was an album filler. So he worked on the track with no special passion on it. Shep Pettibone produced 'I Want To Wake Up', not Julian Mendelssohn. Julian Mendelssohn has also given up producing and just d...

Bounce isn’t good enough to feature on an expanded Introspective. It’s a fun curio, but they were right to drop it.

Re: PSB remixing 'well known English male who plays guitar.'

I watched a surprising YouTube video with Noel Gallagher a few months ago in which he was talking about discovering synthesisers and how much he loves them. Admittedly it was a paid product placement for Arturia, but I think his sentiment was genuine.

She referred to herself as Irish, her name was Mary O Brien I’m aware of that, but she was born in West Hampstead in London which makes her English. According to you she is English...i heard her say a few times that she was Irish...possibly had an Irish passport too. Ethnic identity and place of bi...

Re: Dusty Springfield on Google

Meanwhile in the U.K. we get Argentinian marine biologist Irene Bernasconi for today’s doodle. Because it’s not like Dusty was English or anything… She referred to herself as Irish, her name was Mary O Brien I’m aware of that, but she was born in West Hampstead in London which makes her English.
