Re: How different are your PSB tastes from those of the majority of PSB fans?

Love: Saturday Night Forever, Violence, Ego Music, Legacy.
Hate: Dictator decides (a poor rewriting of "I'm not scared"), I want a lover (terrible production, the Kraftwerk-like Bobby O demo sounds much better).

Re: Do you have the feeling of a "non surprising" album to come?

The thing's that in order to bring out an uberpop album they need a strong visual concept too. That would mean bringing back costumes and all the rest of it, and hopefully trying to push Farrow a little harder. But that will probably be easier once the SP era is done, and I'm not sure I want to wait...

Re: Do you have the feeling of a "non surprising" album to come?

I wish they went back to the Electric formula, because they seem to give their best with longer tracks these days, whereas their standard pop writing is a little weary. But it'll probably be a megapop thing, not too different from Super. A proper surprise would be a mellow album, but I'm not really ...

You may as well ask if Home and dry increased mice sales.
It definitely did.

Re: Twenty-something and a poem

There should have been an extended mix with that verse, much like The Pop Kids had. Hearing it now it's one of the best tracks from Super.

Re: Christmas card 2017

Looks like Farrow can't really be bothered anymore. The white background thing has become a joke, hasn't it?

Re: Neil Tennant’s ‘The Thing’

Neil's been pretty "sophis" and deep lately. I like it and I hope it will translate in his new lyrics. Hopefully there's room for something more substantial than "Groovy" or "Say it to me".

Re: Would you like a new PSB rock album?

With Price at the helm they could sound like The Killers - "The last to die" showed that. I love the killers and Brandon flowers btw. That’s the kind of Rock I like. Anyway I prefer funk, and I can’t imagine them doing that! lol 😂 They could make a vintage-sounding britfunk album with Joey Negro. O...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Someone on Quietus' Facebook page mentioned rumours of PSB being involved in 2020 celebrations of Beethoven's 250th anniversary. Now just how cool would be that?
