Hi everyone, haven't posted in a while but caught the boys on Graham Norton tonight. Pop Kids is a great song and single. They looked good and the performance was great as well as the set up. I think the whole focus on 'commercial success' and chart placings is a bit odd. They will forever will be up against it. They are the unlikely pop stars and so when people say they looked out of place tonight, I'm perfectly happy with that. They go against the grain and do what they want to do regardless of slack of whatever.
Can't we just be happy that they are still making music and touring. Looking forward to Super and London shows.

I liked the performance, it was great marketing, but...Neil, those shoes, seriously?! And Chris wasn't in sync with the backing track at parts.

It must be really shit to be gay and have no helmets.

I don't know about the girl but the other two men are playing the leads of the new Batman vs Superman film, Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

No mention of the horrible critical reception the film has gotten.

That was the very lovely Amy Adams, although I have only seen 30 second snippets of her and there would have been better choices to play Lois Lane. Maybe.

I thought the TV performance of the song was one of their better ones in recent years, even though it was a horribly edited down version. It was shorter then even the radio edit, right? Chris's jacket looked a bit tight and was “a bit Davros” for my taste.

Love the song, nice performance, I am just bloody grateful the guys are still around, they look like they are enjoying themselves and are still providing us with music, I can't think of many artists I liked back in 1986 that are still doing this ??

The keyboard Chris's using.

A small voice of calm and reason.

It could be my eyes, but Chris looks to be carrying a bit of extra timber these days. He is 56, I suppose..
