Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Erasure kick off the programme; it's funny how much Vince yielded that guitar in the early days. Obviously anticipating the Release era, this once again shows who the true synth-pop innovators were.

Re: 10 years of Fundamental - Trevor Horn answers questions from forum members

Tend to agree with your comments Drico. Listened to the first 15 mins of the show and wondered if Trevor was on the wind up re his links to the boys. Personally I wasn’t sure why on social media was chosen as the lead track on the show, as even though I’m not a big fan of GSaC of the four tracks it...

What could be more snowflake than creating a thread to whine about the fact that Neil has a platform other than one's Internet safe space? Irony indeed.

Re: The irony of Agenda

Because language is protean, it’s always fascinating to see how new word meanings evolve.

I actually think that ‘snowflake’ is a perfect word to describe a certain sensibility. How typical of snowflakes to object to such a term!

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

I had also never realised that Andy Bell sang on the Let It Be charity single; so he had number ones with both Beatles and Abba cover versions.

If Neil had posted about these issues on here, they'd have been moved to the part of the forum where snowflakes daren't venture. :shhh:
