Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

How would you consider having a public archive with good-quality PDF scans of all the Annually/Literally issues? In theory, I like this idea. But it must be noted that it would be a form of copyright violation, and anyone who would undertake to do this (aside from the Boys themselves, of course, or...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Actually, several hours after I emailed the PSB management company to complain about this situation, I received an email (just a few minutes ago) from a represented who said that he would try to obtain a replacement copy for me, but he said there were no guarantees at this point. He would do his be...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings Wayne, Keep pushing the line, don't give up. Insist that if it was delivered back to the warehouse then *your* copy exists *there*. It hasn't vanished into thin air, and you don't mind at all that they're re-sending stock that's previously been posted. Retro. :) Actually, several hours af...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Does anyone have contact information for PSB management. I thought I would send them copies of all my email concerning the issues I have had. The email address for their management is info@beckerbrown.com. I wrote to them this morning describing my experience and quickly received a response (probab...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

I received the same response. Still waiting on my refund. I got PayPal involved because they did not respond within 48 hours as they had promised. I have received my refund for 'Discovery'. Just curious what happened to all the copies that got returned. Yes, I'm curious about that as well. It sound...

Re: "Cricket Wife" initial commentary

If it was good they wouldn’t have released it this way. The boys aren’t dumb. I think it all depends on what we mean by "good." If we mean "commercial" or having mass appeal, then, no, it's not very good. But if we mean something that's more artistically ambitious, something tha...

For those of you who are interested, I've taken my first crack at interpreting this complex, challenging new PSB song. You can read what I have to say about it on my "Commentary" website, specifically at http://www.geowayne.com/newDesign/other/cricketwife.htm . SPOILER ALERT! If you'd rat...

Re:

If Neil is playing with time in order to write meaningfully about death and memory, it then makes sense for his mother (assuming it is about her) to be able to fly in her imagination to collect his father from the past. So she’s not young again, but rather looking down and observing a memory. “Not ...

Re: Diddly Squat

Be nice to know how this comes to exist and if Neil and Chris gave their blessing. I've provided a little more background info on my website, specifically at http://www.geowayne.com/newDesign/otherartists/diddlysquat.htm -- but, in short, yes, Neil and Chris did give it their blessing. They wrote t...

Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

This is just my opinion -- and I'm terribly biased, of course -- but I've never understood how some (many?) critics' polls have rated Daft Punk higher than PSB (as they have indeed done at times) by virtue of ANY reckoning. Yes, I like some things Daft Punk have done, but they simply can't compare t...

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

They've long talked about expanding/modifying "A Man from the Future" into a more "theatrical" format, so I'm hoping that's the "theatrical production" they're working on.

Re: What do you PSB are going to do this year?

A single of some sort would be good. An album made through lockdown would be even better! :D Even more better would be a mini concert on Youtube. I would love a Disco 5 album consisting of remixes of Price trilogy tracks, but not necessarily remixed by Price and not necessarily the singles. Perhaps...
