Good b-side, but definitely sounds like a b-side to me... shades of GIn And Jag (Frisky Mix), This Used To Be The Future and The Resurrectionist, with the BPM wisely pulled back a notch.

Re: Annually 2020

So now that the origins of the samples in "Electricity" and "To step aside" are revealed, what's left to ask Neil & Chris about?

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

About Oslo 19th June:

This is an outdoor event, and on 19th June the sun doesn't set until 22:43. I hope PSB are aware of this.

Re: What's the lead single of "Electric"?

Greetings, Maybe some lyrics? There are too few of them in "Axis", so it seems like a strange lead single to me. I don't remember quantity of lyrics being a criteria for whether something is a single. That's news to me. As for being a "strange lead single", I thought Winner was a "strange lead sing...

Re: What's the lead single of "Electric"?

Surprised you didn't build a poll into the new topic! Anyway, I'd say Axis... it had its own artwork, a radio edit, a cracking film clip, an actual physical 12" single... what more does something have to do to qualify as a single? Maybe some lyrics?

What's the lead single of "Electric"?

Maybe it's a bad timing for this question in these Hotspot days, and I've tried the search function without success.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Hotspot has also a geological meaning:

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

"Dreamland" got the score of 6,369 on Geowayne's rating project.

Only five PSB-singles have scored lower: "Numb", "Before", "Beautiful people", "Together" and "Winner".
