Re: How many Tennant/Lowe-tracks?

===NERD ALERT!=== Does anyone have an excact number of how many unique tracks are released credited or co-credited to Tennant/Lowe (or Lowe/Tennant), performed by any artist (including PSB themselves, of course)? I know that there's a list on Geowayne.com called "PSB Song Chronology" with 379 entri...

Re: Live performances of Chris in past and now.

In the same vein, I approached Neil at the BBC Concert Orchestra “Music and Chance” night at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London in 2009. He happily signed and chatted but needed to point out to me that I was standing right next to Chris and that I might want his autograph too.

Just those few lines in I want to wake up (1993 remix).

Re: Live performances of Chris in past and now.

Good topic. I think the last time Chris performed Paninaro was on the Fundamental tour (2006). It used to be a pretty regular staple of a PSB show. He took on multiple roles in Performance (1991) including stripping in We all feel better in the dark and getting drunk in West End girls. That was prob...

Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

I was fortunate to meet and chat with Chris after the first performance at the Savoy in 1997 (at the stage door afterwards) I was utterly star struck but I had enough presence to talk about football and Arsenal mainly and keep the chat away from music and fandom.. In return he was totally charming ...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

The commentary is a little disappointing. Jack clearly can’t remember much about it; indeed it feels in many places like he’s watching it for the first time. But his love for the film comes across strongly. Apparently he didn’t get along with Joss Ackland, but all performances are praised and there ...

It's a lovely package and I'm happy to have the book.

Can anyone decipher bottom left? The middle word looks like “album”; can’t work out the other two.

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

I think we’ll get PSB’s “England” album... a counterpoint to Hotspot... More Bernard Butler, maybe co-producing alongside them; Tracey Thorn on a few tracks. Inspired by country walks and musings on identity. I’d be well up for that.

Re: US TOUR

Are you guys saying that the gigs will not be all the same? Some will mostly feature PSB, others New Order? That seems rather weird. It's a Unity, so I thought both bands will be of equal importance on all dates. They’re both equally billed. But in some shows New Order will open, to be followed by ...

Re: New official West End girls 2020 video

I guess from tomorrow the new Government guidelines mean in theory Neil and Chris would be able to meet in person and spend time at each other’s houses.
