A pink lego-dotted CD case would have been perfect

now you have me thinking. there was a band that put out an actual lego case with the cd.
and some lego games had jewel boxes with lego.

so maybe i can make a pink one from real legos for the cd.

that would be interesting.

I was having huge problems login in so I had to do it as a guest.
Also had to disable the adblocker for the whole process (Chrome- uBlock Origin), otherwise it wouldnt allow me to buy. ( just in case helps someone here )

Hey negative_One that Dj Culture poster is awesome, where would you advice to get one ? no time machine available sadly :/
hello Eleven,

you have a few options to look into:
1) search online, ebay, and other places in case there is one for sale (may be expensive)

2) you can have someone make a 60x40 inch poster for you, maybe on etsy or somewhere, should cost less

3) make your own poster, i have been using https://posterazor.sourceforge.io/ , free open source program
to create posters of other groups. then you can use your own ink and paper, or send image to a print shop
to print it for you. you will have to combine all the pages with glue, and tape to make it large.

if you put it on posterboard, it can look professional.

let me know if you need any more assistance. i have about 100+ posters up of many groups around the house
now. a mix of real, and printed ones.

Now that ‚Relentless‘ officially is an album on its own, they can re-release it in a fat jewel case ‚Further Listening‘ 2CD in say ten years. As others mentioned already: the extra tracks are already all there.

Well, Neil has in FL booklet specifically said that they should've released Relentless on its own with Euroboy and Some Speculation but I interpret it as those two songs not being recorded (or even written) by the time of the release of Relentless. I wouldn't mind them on the new release though, they'd fit perfectly.

He made reference to them when he said Disco 2 was a mistake ( or similar) and they should have re-issued Relentless instead, adding Euroboy and Some Speculatipn
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

I'm not feeling the new artwork, it's like a revisited Alternative but that black background doesn't feel very Relentless or Very era. However I'm happy that they're reissuing the EP, now considered a proper album, and that it's coming to streaming services.

My daughter's pearler bead creations was the inspiration I think you'll find.... :lol:

Relentless has never been known as an EP. It's 37-38 minutes in length which is longer than a mini-album (though these distinctions are fairly meaningless these days)

Bob Dylan's album Nashville Skyline is ten tracks and runs for just 26 minutes.

10 minutes shy of Introspective. IIRC in Tom Watkins book he had to fight hard to convince Parlophone that that was an album.

I agree the black background is not very Relentless or have that PSB era early 90s vibe (ok, ok Alternative).

Should have been Pink.

Or, to reflect the Ukrainian support on their website, the Ukrainian Yellow and Blue stripes, perhaps upside down with the blue contrasting against their helmets. Now I think about it that would have been neat, if a tad political.

I think this may have been on display at London’s Design Museum.
Woof.
