Re: "It Couldn't Happen Here" on DVD

DVD is a 90s format that is almost dead. No hopes here. Even bluray is dying, certainly for music film releases. They could release it on Netflix or what have you but it will have to be an HD widescreen master, otherwise it will not happen. I suspect most masters that exist are SD 4:3 letterbox (use...

Re: This is breaking my heart

No need to convert them, they’re all on Youtube in better quality and sound than VHS (Laserdisc transfers).

Re: This is breaking my heart

Tried to sell several music VHS releases (Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Bowie, Suede) in vain years ago on eBay. Really, nobody is interested. I believe I have DiscoVery, Highlights, Somewhere, and Promotion or one of the other video albums. They're in my attic, you can pm me if you're interested. But k...

Re: Years and years & PSB

"it's still being decided who will take that one" = PSB want to release it on their next album as PSB feat. Olly Alexander and he probably want it the other way around who gets to decide if they've agreed 50/50 writing credits? It depends who owns the publishing rights. Writing credits are irreleva...

On the other hand I've never seen the appeal of "Sgt. Pepper's", I find it really contrived and cheesy.
Indeed it is. It is the only Beatles CD I own, last time I listened to it was probably two weeks after I bought it in 1992 or so. The Beatles is just not my thing.

Re: The Apple in Neil's & Chris' eyes

Can’t stand The Beatles. because there was hardly any competition. Are you freaking kidding? The 60's was an explosion of amazing pop singles. Beach Boys, Mama's and the Papa's, The Turtles et al are all garbage I guess? Anyway, I'm kind of surprised by the hate here. The Beatles had an unimaginabl...

Re: The Apple in Neil's & Chris' eyes

Can’t stand The Beatles. Me neither. Yes, they had a hughe following but that’s mainly because there was hardly any competition. The She loves you yeah yeah yeah period is simplistic, the later songs proto-prog rock stuff I don’t like. I prefer the Kinks who are from the same period but who wrote i...

Re: Final results of poll on why "Being Boring" under-performed as a single

Being boring is always called a fan favourite, but it's not mine. Too long, too boring. The lyrics are nice, but indeed it's all a bit too pretentious. Also, I am no huge ballads/mid tempo fan, although PSB have written a few decent ballads or mid-tempo songs that I do like (Only the wind, Indefini...

Mini OBI scan wanted

Would someone be so kind to share a HQ scan of the OBi for the Mini PSB CD EP? I own that one, but do not have the OBI. Until I find the real thing, a scan will have to do. Thanks!

Re: Reissues project

I've been quite obsessed with the thought of a PSB CD singles boxset, I asked a question which was published in an issue of literally about 10 years ago (can't remember which one) and Chris replied at the time that he thought CDs would be obsolete soon so it probably wouldn't happen, I then asked N...
