Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I have to say (well, maybe I don't really) that I don't really get the fuss over this. I haven't ordered a copy, and I'm trying to work out why I haven't.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Faber and Faber is clearly the publishing equivalent of EMI. Hello there— I'm afraid I'm writing with bad news. You recently ordered a copy of a special edition of Neil Tennant's One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem (9780571351572) from faber.co.uk. But we made a mistake. The particular version of the book...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

Regarding legendary internet Petheads, I noticed that Satanas was in that Quietus stream the other day, metaphorically chucking bottles at Neil, the web host and Uncle Tom Cobley.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

The Introspective version of It's Alright is a karaoke version of Sterling Void's euphoric original and therefore inferior. The single is an excellent pop version and served to get an underground track into the top five.

Re: Complete Singles Collection Vol. 1

Yeah, I suppose I'm just impatient for something new. Still, at least Neil's book will be out soon and it'll be interesting to read what he says about them and see which godawful tracks get in there on account of having a pretentious lyric.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Very

The first half of Very is incredibly strong as an album. I love the way the tracks segue in one another.

Re: Complete Singles Collection Vol. 1

While I'd love a definitive box set, I am fatigued with PSB re-releases - we have just had a re-release of a re-release!

It's pretty funny that the Domino dancing video, for all its homoeroticism, still features the hottest girl from their videos. Got to be confusing for a teenager.
