Re: PSB to continue touring in 2023 with more UK dates

Chris sounded very energetic and “up”.

Re: Glastonbury 2022

They’re both Beatles fans and I rather like that they have the respect and friendship of one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Re: A musical called naked and songs for 2 new albums

Apparently you're not allowed to use the term actress anymore, they're all actors. ...you just used the term actress, so I fail to see how this can be true? Conservatives and their made-up moral panics... Nickname, I'm tired of your topics and even providing retorts to you, but the play is based on...

Re: PSB to continue touring in 2023 with more UK dates

If you were playing the biggest show of your career on a Sunday night and announcing your touring plans for the following year on a Monday morning, might you not have a new single to release as part of such promotion? Drico. That's very 20th century thinking. They can put out new music for us loyal...

Re: Glastonbury 2022

If it is Olly on Dreamland then I'm just glad that they're reclaiming It's A Sin for themselves.

Re: Glastonbury 2022

The special guest is going to be Olly on Dreamland. Surely that's the obvious choice. I don't think it will be Marc on Purple Zone because that's a Soft Cell song.

Re: Glastonbury 2022

They were just (unexpectedly) on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show on Radio 2. Neil just said that there’s a special guest on one song and that it’s pretty obvious who it is, so he’s not going to say. He also said that they'll probably be starting work on the next album after the Unity tour with New Order a...

They’re on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show on Radio 2 right now. Neil just said that there’s a special guest on one song and that it’s pretty obvious who it is, but he’s not going to say.

Re: The right choice of singles in order to increase the popularity of PSB (IMHO)

I agree with Drico, however there's one exception to the rule and that's Love etc. I still surprised me how well it worked in the singles charts - at least in Germany it did. It stayed in the official Top 20 for almost three months. Then again they had a clever video clip accompanying that single r...

Yes, repurposing King’s Cross to cash in on the tragedy would definitely have been the way to go. Shame on them for not having more commercial nous.

Re: Glastonbury 2022

I always associate Jo Whiley with the period when they were being removed from the Radio 1 playlist. Thankfully, they didn't respond with a legal challenge like the Quo. Surely she should also have been similarly phased out by someone younger and sexier by now? On the odd occasion I've had the misf...
