Yes that's the one. Also the "I belive in ecstasy..." thing on Very was about him...

I love the Pokemon word on it :lol:

Relentless is great. I like One Thing Leads to Another best.
Interviewer:
-What would you tell someone about yourself if you wanted to impress them?

Chris:
-I´ve got a 12-inch plonker.

Thanx. I only knew that 'Alternative' was dedicated

songs being about him. I think ...

IBIE should be about him.... Although some fan´s father was blaiming PSB for encouraging their fans to use ecstasy. :lol:

I think We Came From Outer Space may be about Pete Andreas with the lines ' Somethings not right I can't work it out' and ' I love you, don't leave me'
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

It's interesting seeing everyone's fav track on one of the PSB's best albums.

I personally rate "one thing leads to another" as my least fav on Relentless. I suppose it's because it's the least dancey.

Indeed there is, Being Boring is about a friend Neil lost isn't it. :(
