Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I'm now going to pretend the other three tracks didn't happen, The forgotten child is outstanding, a massively redeeming feature of the EP

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Struggling to get my head around this EP and what Neil and Chris are thinking... I can’t be the only fan (and I mean 30 years fan) who thinks the songs are laughably crap and it’s a big joke or something? You're saying what I'm thinking.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I hear some similarity to I Get Along (and the Release era in general)

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

Watching it through now. 8m21s: Get off the stage Pete!!! :lol: I always wondered about this. I saw the show 5 times and all 5 times Pete came on to fiddle with the laptop at this stage.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Received my preordered copy today (from Amazon)

Looking good thus far, but I did notice a slight typo in the lyrics at the start of Discoteca

Definitely depressing, the lyric "Oh please will somebody put me out of my misery" near the end seems fitting!
