Re: Snippets

Love the sound of the clips. The only track that seems out of place is Wedding In Berlin. It should have been left as a gift for the friend and not considered as part of an album campaign.

Re: Hotspot era design

I’m still not a fan of the Hotspot cover, yet I like Monkey Business’ cover. I asked a friend who is good with artwork/graphic design to make covers for Burning The Heather/Hotspot/Monkey Business that used Berlin U-Bahn signs that kept in with the Dreamland theme as my OCD can’t cope with the artwo...

Am I the only one who thinks "Monkey Business" as a song title is err.... Cringey! :eh: I'm not that that keen on it. - Sorry!
I like the title. I find Willow The Wisp and You Are The One far more cringey!

Re: New/third single

Living in Milton Keynes, I would say that the staircase does look very familiar so it is possible that it is the Chris Lowe MK stairs It’s not. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200102/d71c233490153b7704473f8109ae59da.jpg Ah ok, looks very similar to the stairs in the car park by the train station.

Has anyone had confirmation of their order for either CD or vinyl? I preordered Monkey Business earlier but no order confirmation as yet.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Am I the only thinking that the pre-orders are a bit lacklustre especially considering how much they pushed the boat out for Super. They could have done bundles of CD and vinyl, CD, Cassette & Vinyl, CD and exclusive preorder single 7”, vinyl with a 7” of Dreamland, cassette and Heather 12”. You get...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Greetings, https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=550121375789018 The instrumental sounds like it's taken source material from Will O The Wisp, but it's a unique track in the sense that its 25 seconds does not appear "as is" in the actual song itself. Hopefully this trailer appears on the Further Listen...

Re: Do you think the 2 first albums of the triology have any real contender of the PSB classics?.

Vocal is a Top five all time PSB Classic. The fact that (at the time) a band going for 28 years could release this absolute banger is incredible. The fact that outside the fanbase it’s completely unknown is even better. It makes it feel like that rare white label from 1991 that you only heard at th...

Re: Questions for Neil

Considering that up until Nightlife all albums had 4 singles minimum released from them, was it a conscious decision to scale down album campaigns from Nightlife onwards? If so what would the preferred single choices for further singles from Nightlife, Release, Fundamental, Yes and Elysium have bee...
