Does that include the black sleeves designed/designated to hold certain 4 issues each?

Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

This is sooooooo lovely!

Does the "setlist" contain anything recognisable other than It's alright? For a moment I thought that a tune in the middle resembled something from Battleship Potemkin.

Re: CD + Graphics

There were quite a few in the second half of 90s and early 00s. Some CD singles were "enhanced" — they included a data track along with normal audio tracks. These would include promo video, photos, low-bitrate audio files of the audio tracks etc. Off the top of my head: Before (US CD) and all of the...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Still from the start of the Liberation video, seemingly depicting a corona virus. https://i.imgur.com/rNjVLRe.png As a big fan of the Very era videos, I have also been minding this object since coronavirus images emerged in the media several weeks ago. Wondering if Howard Greenhalgh was inspired by...

Re: NEIL IS "SELF-ISOLATING" during this Coronavirus Global Nightmare!!!!!!

Neil's self-isolating means no further progress on tour preparations/rehearsals. I'd expect official cancellation/postponement announced this week. Even if there are still doubts that concerts will not be allowed (which I doubt there are any), there should be no more doubts that they won't get prepa...

Pretty sensible thing to do now. What the exclamation marks are all about?

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Here in Argentina, today, in the Customs office, the employees already told me that no packages from overseas are accepted anymore since last week...and nobody knows for how long this will last... :/ Hmmm. Why though? The virus doesn't last on non-living objects for more than 3 days. Did they cut a...

Re: Tom Watkins dead

I hope they acted like grownups and went to the funeral (if invited). Today we sent flowers to his funeral with the message: “Thanks for five Massive years”. I think people don't get advised in advance about funerals like this (so that they can send flowers in time) unless they are invited. So, the...

I want to own the music. not visit it like a divorced father visiting his kids.
Juno and Qobuz will (hopefully) not stop selling downloads. Apple can suck if it wants to (it has not been selling lossless anyway, so I care even less).

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Isnt it just another Flu? That kills thousands every year. Its never in the news. For regular flu scientists find vaccine reasonably easily which can tackle massive spread. Now they struggle to find one for this bugger. The tour kicks off in 7 weeks from now. The situation may rapidly develop in di...

It's really divisive being a PSB fan isn't it?
Yeah that amazes me too. Is there any other band whose die-hard fans are so divided over tastes and opinions about the band's music?
The music (not lyrics) of I don't wanna just doesn't go out of my head these days!
