Re: Annually and Agenda CD lost by Digital Stores

Greetings, My misadventures with Digital Stores have just had a happy and unexpected turn! It looks like my parcel will be re-dispatched after all! Special thanks to Zazzoo and goughsjd for sharing their experiences, which helped me to navigate the rigid protocols and roadblocks of their Customer "...

I'd say there was definitely something afoot.
Me too...
Three pics in a week - all thematically titled "Polaroid from photo session..."

I don't believe there's nothing to see here...definitely something going on in the PSB camp.

Re: Annually and Agenda CD lost by Digital Stores

Tell me I'm dumb. but if they released a Kindle/Apple Books/whatever version of this, wouldn't they make a few pounds at least? You're dumb :lol: But actually, that would seem to be a very good idea. Maybe it takes away from some of the exclusivity of the publication a bit, but I don't really read ...

Photos for a book - a PSB biography, or Neil's memoirs?

Re: IF Disney wanted PSB to work on a soundtrack, would you like it?

What's not to like as it's new PSB music the way I see it. I'm not sure Disney would ask them, and if they did, I'm not sure PSB would accept though. I've struggled to think what type of movie would really fit with a PSB soundtrack - and I mean PSB, not Tennant/Lowe scored. I can't see it ever being...

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

Elysium is an odd one. I actually really rate it, and like several of the songs that many seem to dislike - Ego Music, Your Early Stuff, Hold On, Give It A Go, even dare I say it, Winner - it's pretty good stuff. But I kind of "get" why people don't like it at the same time. I don't think it's fair ...

Re: Why vinyl? My first PSB-CD

My first CD ever was a PSB one, the CD single of Heart. I did not own a CD player myself, I was 15 at the time, but my parents just got one. It certainly was a premium format back then with premium prices, but CD singles had the same price as 12" vinyl with the same content or even more. Since, I a...

Re: Re-evaluating Agenda One Month Later

Greetings, Still not a fan. Musically, Social Media is alright, but I prefer when they tackle internet communications from a more seedy perspective (e.g. Gin And Jag, Get It Online) rather than from a pretentious/elitist perspective. Forgotten Child is alright, but feels half finished, and stands o...

Re: 1988 photo

My exact thoughts! Why post this as a Pet Text without any context? Not like the Boys to post simply for nostalgias sake. More to this than meets the eye I say! Everything means something, as Neil used to sing in year 2012 Exactly! Neil knows best...if this isn't significant in some way I'd be surp...

Re: Why vinyl? My first PSB-CD

My first PSB CD was Where The Strrets Have No Name with the new remix of I Want A Dog...that was the sole reason I bought it and I didnt even have a CD player to listen to it on for maybe a year or more after. I was a total 12" junkie for PSB music...still am...so the majority of my collection are t...
