I think one of the most exciting pop records released this year was Jessie Ware's What's your pleasure
Eh, Goldfrapp were doing that over a decade ago.

I'd rather them make music that excites them, rather than "reinvent" themselves by emulating others.

Re: So Hard 30th Anniversary Poll - How many physical copies?

Personally, I have (in the order that I collected them): - AUS cassette single - KLF 12" - UK CD single - US CD single - Morales CD single - KLF CD single - Europe CD single - UK 7" - Promo 12" Jea...

Re: funko Pops

I don't mind them but I find it very off-putting that Chris looks so alert, and that Neil looks so non-plussed... Obviously it should be the other way around.

If you look at the video description it says "Sonido WAV", suggesting it was created using the software of the same name...

Re: Single versions

Greetings, I recommend checking out Geowayne's poll on the topic: https://www.petshopboys-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=27421&view=next My view, generally, is that in the 80's and 90's every edit was either better or necessary (in the event that the original was too long). From Release onwards that...

Re: Did the PSB website change?

Perhaps X2 has gone the way of Spaghetti Records and Olde English.

Re: It Couldn't Happen Here DVD/BluRay 2020 - Summary of pressings?

Greetings Greendrake,

Thanks... that's very helpful for myself and anyone not wanting to trawl through the giant topic, trying to glean this information. Now just to see if anyone knows of anything else or different.

It Couldn't Happen Here DVD/BluRay 2020 - Summary of pressings?

Greetings, Normally I'd be able to find this information out of Discogs or PSB Catalogue but neither provide any details as of yet. Do we have a definitive understanding of what editions of the It Couldn't Happen Here DVD/BluRay exist? And do any of those pressings correct the 24/25 speed issue, or ...

Re: If you've done nothing wrong.....

Greetings, Neil was ahead of the curve warning so elegantly and menacingly about the risk of the political class weaponizing technology against its enemies. It's a shame he's walked away from that perspective in the meantime in favour of Guardian pastiche. Now that it's back in the news, I wonder wh...
