Re: I–V–vi–IV chords

I’ll ask...... not being musically adept, could you give an example of this 1,5,6,4 chord progression?

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

West End girls and Love comes quickly somehow passed 15 year old me by. Then I heard Opportunities, with that same “flick” sound that was all over the latest Kraftwerk LP (Electric Cafe). Straight down to Martin the Newsagent with £2.99 for the 12” that had a gold sticker promising “over 23 minutes ...

Re: Cicero - Love Is Everywhere Demo

Why wasn’t Cicero huge? Four banging singles, a track on a successful film, the weight of PSB behind him. In hindsight I think there was little marketing and not enough money behind it all. Had he been signed by a major with a decent advance, I think he’d have been very successful. As it was it felt...

Re: PSB are playing Glastonbury 2020

Considering the boys were supposed to be there this weekend, the BBC’s options to watch old performances was very PSB light. No option of 2010 pandemonium performance and only West End girls shown from 2000. Instead the usual Coldplay Adele Sheeran Beyoncé nonsense.

It was around 20 years after release before I knew of any controversy around the Domino Dancing video. Innocently thought it was just two guys getting into a scuffle over a very hot woman.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Wedding In Berlin (Blade extended Mix) actually makes the track good. It expands the wedding March part and makes the whole track more cohesive. I prefer it to the original.

Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

I have heard some entertainers will be really engaging with someone if the person makes no mention of their fandom and just chats them up whereas sometimes people who make it known they are huge fans will kinda grate on their nerves. i can vouch for this. i have met many musicians, celebrities, and...

Elysium is the Behaviour of the 21st century. In another 12 years you’ll realise just how good it actually is.

The list is as bland as the “DJ” heading it.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

The blu ray version looks incredible. The regular dvd version looks pretty good too tbh although mine doesn’t rip as it’s a bit scratched 😡

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

I'm stunned that Depeche Mode never had a #1 single in the UK - I'd have put cold hard cash down on that. Just goes to show that chart positions counted for very little even back in the 80's. Depeche Mode is so dark, I understand they are not very radio friendly. I think the very first songs with V...
