Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Well if it's about Cricket and ten minutes long it'll either be long and boring or stop half way through while Neil and Chris have a cup of tea before it resumes playing. I'm Scottish, I am allowed to dislike Cricket, it's the law in Scotland...but anything new from the boys I will allow myself to g...

Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

It's funny when threads like these appear on any of their social media platforms, people go insane. If you don't like to discuss their private lives, just scroll on. :) I like to think of them as a couple. Say what you want, but one is always free to fantasize. You fantasize about Chris and Neil be...

Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

:shhh: I can't believe this thread is still here, what nonsense. Who cares if they are, were or are going to be lovers or not. They are two obviously very close friends doing what they love and what they are good at, why is that not enough for some people. Do we really need to turn the forum into so...

Re: PSB namechecks in New Order biogs

Don't know much about New Order, other than liking a few songs. Wasn't one of them like some kind of fascist or something? Or am I confusing that with another group? I think that was the Reynolds Girls. Yes one was very racist if i remember at the time (mid 80's), she was asked if she preferred com...

Random PSB related sightings in public where you would not expect to see them

Just watching highlights of Kilmarnock FC V Rangers FC from Sunday and lo and behold there is a big banner behind the goals of Chris under Paninaro, is this a common thing in football or it some kind of ultras thing associated with certain clubs. I seem to remember the clothing company Weekend Offen...

Re: Vote now for the greatest synth sound of all time!

As much as i love the boys i was never a fan of West End Girls when it released, it wasn't until i heard Paninaro & Suburbia that they gripped me, so i went with the track that had by far the biggest impact on me at first listen a very very long time ago. I Feel Love by Giorgio Moroder & Don...

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

PSB have always had that knack of being so utterly unpredictable with their sound, even a CD single release can have four or five tracks that sound completely different from each other, they have done this with my entire listening time with them since Paninaro grabbed me and shook the life out of me...
