First JasonJohn, thanks for the link. My best advice to some of the bollocks posted there is: IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T BUY IT!!!!

It seems to me that quite a few commentators are concerned about the cost of the TPK EP, while not liking it much in the first place. Now there's a problem, eh? What could the answer possibly be?

Also, if you hate the new single that much, and haven't liked the PSB much over the last 10-15 years... why do you care? It's a free world, don't buy them, leave them be. The PSB are clearly doing what they want to do. Unless, of course the great unwashed public might buy the odd copy, and you
feel it's your moral and ethical duty to warn them away from
such music.

Yeah I agree Zog.

I think a PSB Single is something they know is valued by their fans, and the price is justified by the extra effort they put into the b-sides... Not many artists take as much effort with b-sides these days :)

Looks cardboard to me. As long as it matches the Electric singles, I'm not fussed. We've had every type of packaging over the years for the singles anyway, cardboard, jewel, that weird plastic sleeve with I Wouldn't Normally Do, digipack (Paninaro 95), the thicker CD style (Fundamental) and the gatefold Electric ones.

Is this a "placeholder" or actual CDs????

If it's the actual CDs, I strongly suggest that somebody go down and grab (buy!) a few.

I'd do this myself, but 4,000 plus miles distance tends to be a bit of a barrier (and that's if I hike over Greenland!).

Well, it's shrink wrapped so would assume it's the actual CD.

Hopefully we'll hear this is a few hours, if anyone is able to get their hands on it.

Is it wrong and/or terribly sad of me that I've been checking YouTube every half an hour since seeing this post? :D

If someone finds anything, please let us know. We're not doing anything illegal, as we've already ordered the CD so we're going to listen upfront to something we've already paid for.

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

I hope it's gatefold case, not just a simple carsleeve!

Looks like a cardsleeve 'UK' only single this time! And maybe this will become common for the next singles too! Sorry if someone liked jewel case, gatefold, etc. The cheapest way is cardsleeve and as long as you can't make much money with "singles" nowadays, it will went that way! The next phase should the "no singles anymore" phase then :(.

On the photo it looks like an oversized case like the Electric singles, and if you see the top area of the case where the light is it looks like it's not just a thin cardsleeve but it's a bit fat. So I think it's gatefold.

I think it's gatefold sleeve like Electric singles or double wallet. Because there is no credits on the sleeve (according to photo). I guess credits are inside, so it's not simple cardsleeve.
