Re: Discovery review

Wow. Top review. Considered, relative objective. Love the reference to the forum. I’m not on social media so this is my refuge. I bought the dvd but haven’t watched it. Perhaps I won’t ever watch it. Guess I bought it as more if a collectivist of physical output rather than any desire to watch it. M...

Re: SAW Tennant & Lowe

Always on my mind is probably their closest sounding SAW track. Don't forget Phil Harding and Ian Curnow produced Always On My Mind/In My House on Introspective. They also produced I’m not scared. In my humble opinion, in the top 5 PSB tracks of all time. The song AND the production are just spot o...

Re: 10 Hour DJ livestream of PSB on 2 May

Just wanted to say that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to your mega mixes. As someone who spends far too much on long journeys, the 5 hour mix just flies by. Many thanks

Re: Do the Right Thing

I do hope ole Wrighty isn’t embarrassed having done the song. I have the 12 inch single and it’s fab. They should do a 2021 reissued remix (for charity of course!!)

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Just watched it on you tube

Really great performance. Loved the piano bits especially

Think it was fine without N&C. Would have been too much

Re: Cricket Wife ratings

I gave it an 8/10. May not listen to it much in future but it’s a nice addition to their catalogue and not a skipper. Nice to think they have the balls to put together something like this and release it. Good stuff

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

If you're into legal lossless downloads, Qobuz and Tidal are right there. The "Decide" mixes would probably cost you 3 GBP and you'd get them immediately, instead of being at the mercy of a bootlegger and whether they used lossless files or not. Thanks. I tried to register with Qobuz to b...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

The annoying thing about all this is that it (must) be obvious that PSB fans want PHYSICAL content. If people are happy to pay upwards of a tenner for an obviously fake “promo” then they’d be happy to pay upwards of a tenner for an official cd single with all the tracks and remixes on it. Another c...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Not sure what it means other than I understand that higher bitrate probably higher means higher quality. The bitrate of the bootleg monkey business cd seems to be approx 900 kb/s. Now looking at this vs other 'legit' psb cd's I've transferred to the B2 the bitrate seems about the same. However, I ha...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Interesting you raise this question. I bought this a while back as I wanted the physical copy of Decide and was miffed they didn't issue it. Its not just a collector vibe, I just reckon at some point accessibility to all my favourite PSB remixes will not be as easy (or cheap) to access as it is now....

So Sorry I said - acoustic

Always loved this song. Nice insight into the chord structure and the complexity therein.

Any muso's out there care to comment on whether its as 'sophisticated' as it sounds. I'm a bit of a dullard. Sounds complex...
