Re: PRE-ORDER It Couldn't Happen Here (Limited Dual Format Edition)

I wanted to ask you if you have already received the order from BFI. At the time I did the pre-purchase but currently it has not come to me yet. I sent them an email asking and this was the answer "Your order was shipped on the 11th June. It was not sent tracked. We are aware that some overseas par...

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

I love Relentless and will never forget that around the time of release my uncle (not really a PSB fan) telling me he had heard some of the tracks in a local nightclub and couldn't believe it was them! This album is fantastic, I am lucky enough to have it on vinyl and it is one of my favourite PSB i...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

Are the 2 Jackson remixes are completely different, or are they similar like a remix and it's dub version? I hope they differs. I've had a listen to the B-side and remixes and am pleasantly surprised. The David Jackson remix 2 being the best in my opinion. Would have preferred Happy People and some...

Would have preferred Happy People and some remixes of that as a single but in hindsight probably wouldn't fit with the current state of the world!

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

The general attitude from all sides of the political spectrum in regards to the UK government's actions regarding this awful pandemic has been incredibly positive and is something that has been good to see in such a sad and uncertain time. It is simply not the time to try and play politics with this...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

Worst PSB song in their history in my opinion. Absolutely terrible. Quite why they put this on the album is frankly beyond me? I've burnt a copy of Hotspot on a CDR and have put Decide in it's place and the album is so much better for it it's unreal!

Absolutely puzzled as to how this made the cut?

Re: Snippets

I was very pessimistic about new album on the back of Burning the Heather, Dreamland and Monkey Business (which in my eyes are nothing special) but the snippets of the other songs have given me new hope! I'm more attracted to their B-sides and album tracks nowadays it's fair to say, although they ha...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Maybe I'm alone in thinking like this but I've become more a fan of their B-sides and album tracks now bar the odd single here and there. Not really liked the last few singles at all, to be honest, but songs such as Decide I absolutely love. Hoping the album will have some more upbeat songs on it, I...

Re: NY Times article: MASSIVE master tapes loss

I have about 6 external hard drives I use to back all my important stuff on. Although thinking about it a fire would probably ruin all of those! Might hide one in the car or something! Just shows that nothing is truly safe! I take one to work and stick it in the desk drawer. I'm self-employed and w...

Re: NY Times article: MASSIVE master tapes loss

If it happened in 2008 I'm sure Neil and chris would have commented on it by now because they'd certainly be aware of it and it would have had an effect on the Further Listening project as stated by another poster above. Tragic for music in general though, songs which are lost forever! I have about ...

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

Can't believe it's 7 years! I was travelling in America at the time and downloaded it at the Vancouver library (The Washington Vancouver which borders Portland, Oregon) and listened to it whilst I was there and it is amazing how it brings back memories of that place! Just like Bilingual does for me ...
