Re: Is now the time for MCMLXXXIX?

It's taken over 30 years for ICHH to appear on dvd, and that's only because someone else wanted to do it. I don't hold out any hope for MCMLXXIX ever appearing on anything other than VHS and YouTube. There were fan made DVDs of Discovery at the turn of the century, obviously ripped from the laserdi...

Re: Is now the time for MCMLXXXIX?

Right, people are mixing up information here. It's Release that's never been released as it's considered too dark. It's particularly sad that there is no Release concert film as the setlist was excellent and new, guitar-led versions of songs such as Love comes quickly or A red letter day are outsta...

Re: Is now the time for MCMLXXXIX?

Can't remember where I read it, but I'm sure they mentioned a few years back they were intending to release ICHH, Discovery and the full MCMLXXXIX recording on DVD... Anyone remember the source? Yeah it was in an issue of Literally a few years ago!! And yeah they said that was their intention to re...

Re: Is now the time for MCMLXXXIX?

I'd second that. I was 19 at the time and the memory is fast fading ... Yeah, I was 17. Wednesday July 19th 1989. My first ever concert. Absolutely loved it. I have a VHS copy of the unreleased film but obviously it’s not great quality. We have ICHH being released on blu ray / DVD in July. Who know...

Is now the time for MCMLXXXIX?

It seems very popular right now for major artists to dig in to their video archives and upload to YouTube previously unreleased or very rare live concert films. Pink Floyd, Genesis, OMD and Radiohead, to name a few, have already or will be releasing content to YouTube. So it got me thinking, this wo...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

More nostalgia than anything. Not the strongest of tracks granted. I think the track is almost a microcosm of what they were about in the early days. The first verse is quite matter of fact and realistic but with the hope of excitement, love and or/sex (Soft Cell ish in a way). The next verse iirc ...

Was just thinking the same @canveyboy. You can so imagine them writing this at Neil’s flat back in the day. Really like it actually.
You really can can’t you. It’s a lovely track. Hopefully we’ll get ITCOITQ one day!!

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

New Boy has really grown on me now. Beautiful track. The vocal at the start really reminds me of In The Club or In The Queue...each new verse Neil starts singing I automatically think “I wish I could come across you...”

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

I like the b-side, nothing special but as far as b-sides go it’s ok. Certainly not in the same league as Rent, even though written during the same period. I like both David Jackson remixes, although they’re too similar to my ears to tell apart, but I like the retro sound. Much better though is the n...

Re: Hotspot - Further Listening

I always like to use the Annually diaries to order my own Further Listening style playlists. From studying the new edition, does anyone have any builds or tweaks to the following? 1. New boy 2. The forgotten child 3. What are we going to do about the rich? 4. Give stupidity a chance 5. On social me...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

You pay for the book/magazine. Their only commitment is to that. Why? The product page clearly says that the CD "is packaged with this issue". It is part of the product. Customers take that into account when making decision to buy. Should the CD not be included, some may not want to buy the product...

Oh...mine just arrived (Saturday) :dance: That's after the Sat 3am dispatch email so I was pleasantly surprised, thought it wouldn't come until next week. Hopefully that's a good indicator for others too - well in the UK. Now snuggling down on the sofa for an afternoon's read with PSB music playing...
