When Tracy Thorn tweeted that she had met Neil for lunch my subconscious keeps imagining that they are the Christmas number one with their cover of ‘fairytale of New York’ as a banging, super fast, Stuart Price reworked club track. If only dreams could come true!
I want this to really happen.

If we're being extremely honest, the only PSB-produced album sounded kinda bad ("Release")
Very?
Stephen Hague?
Hm, yeah, looking at the booklet, it's additional production.

Well they can’t retire for at least four more years or the Annually “introspective” coloured spines design would be incomplete.
