Re: Catalogue Book

Didn't want to start a new thread on Catalogue so forgive me for the decade old thread resurrection but does anyone know the likelihood of Catalogue being reissued following the success of last year's new versions of Literally and Versus America? Second-hand prices of Catalogue are approx £75 and ab...

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Yeah, I'd prefer if Neil took the verses rather than it sounding like X feat. Neil Tenant!

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Great write-up Drico. You should be busying yourself with a book on the PSB. We're yet to have an unofficial tome that does them credit.

7" mixes are always essential as they are invariably the single/radio edit version, most-commonly played/known.

He sounds a bit like old Ian Dury on this.

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

Yup but the Leeds and Reading festivals are outdoor events. Definitely the right thing for the Dreamworld tour to be pushed back a year. I wonder what will happen on the Unity Tour. I saw that they allowed limited fans to attend a basketball game at Madison Square Gardens this week .... As much as ...

Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Apologies if this that been discussed before but can anyone confirm if these two singles, DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?, were recorded as part of the Behaviour sessions in 1990 or especially for the Discography compilation the following year? They would both have been fantastic additions to Behavi...

Soph did a great cover of Pulp's Do You Remember The First Time a few years ago.

Drico.
Blimey, the cover is enough to raise a semi, proper cricket-bat wood too.

Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

I loved Discovery when it came out but I agree that the Kanye sampling of HBFT propelled them into dizzying heights and as throw-away as Get Lucky is, it was massive and enough for the parent album to almost win a Grammy despite being fairly second-rate. They were hardly prolific either.

Re: #PSBWatch Opportunities in US TV commerical

Blimey, between this and birthing the titular name of Channel 4's most successful streaming drama series ever, the profile is high and the time ripe for a Greatest Hits world tour!! (One day...) Think I prefer this ad over the original advert. The logo on the bonnet of the car bursting into song, wh...
