It's alright

I wouldn't normally suggest this kind of thing but wouldn't it be great if the Pets released a new version of It's alright? Having seen Chris's video, I reckon a lot of that would sound great in a new arrangement. Maybe they could just release it digitally. OK, it's a bit of a cash-in on tragedy but...

To speak is a sin was actually written in 1983 and would have presumably been demoed the same year

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I'm surprised people aren't a bit more miffed about the reduction of b sides to one per single. It's like the 80s and early 90s again the difference being that albums were more frequent then. However I suppose Agenda and Laundrette make up for it a bit.

Re: New Boy demo tape - Pet Text

I question the year. I did a bit of research and worked out ages back that the sticker ads were actually done in 1985 just before Neil left the magazine. I suspect this is actually 1985 but I may be wrong. Having looked into this I am almost certain that the Stick it On ads were done for mid March 1...

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

Quite frankly this thread is just adding to the obsessive panic about this virus and making a serious situation far far worse. There are however far more avoidable deaths occurring either directly or indirectly from things like car accidents, pollution, depression and the f****** Tories.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Gotcha. That makes sense. Thanks for the explanation. Sorry wasn't sure if your reply was for me or onzio but there we go. I'm disappointed with the wastage of Happy people. The single package had better make up for it but I doubt it will. We know there'll be the single mix, the two remixes mention...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I can't really think of any previous PSB release that didn't feel like single material. Even Winner sounds like a single though it's insipid and lyrically awful. My previous qualms have been that far better potential singles have been waylaid for less good ones. This problem really peaked with Funda...
