I found out today I have 20 mins on the phone with Neil (I’m presuming just Neil) on January 10. If there’s anything you want to ask him that you haven’t already sent to Literally, post it here and hopefully I’ll still have time to ask him.
So Niall, what did Neil have to say?

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

I would have gladly bought a few copies for "Decide" and the CYA mix as they're not available on CD. I don't understand the logic of putting two tracks that are widely available on the same format on there; won't be bothering.

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

It would be interesting to know the reason of cancellation. Did they block it because it was still unfinished or they were unhappy with results? Good old times when they were not aware of the fact that people in Japan had an access to Miserablism a year before its official release as a b side... I ...

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

I remember this time before Super was released these sites (cdjapan and hmv.co.jp) also stated that Japanese edition will have 1 bonus track. But at the day of release appeared that it have regular tracklist. So anything can happen. The "Super" bonus track was listed as "The lost room" but that was...

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

Wayne, I check CD Japan every few days to see if they've updated their listing and nothing yet. A guy over on the Steve Hoffman forums said he was told the tracks were going to be "Decide" and "Decide" (CYA remix), which would make sense as there was no CD single, but he didn't say what his source w...

Re: Questions for Neil

Do they ever plan on releasing the "dark techno" tracks written during the "Super" sessions?

Re: Possibilities of a Christmas leak

Back when they were with Parlophone there were many people, probably dozens, who had access to new PSB albums months ahead of time so leaks weeks and even months ahead were common. Since they've been independent PSB have much more control over who and how those people have early access. The chances ...

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

After a few listens, I actual enjoy the "Decide" remix better than the original track. If PSB ever decide to properly record and release those dark techno tracks from the "Super" writing sessions, these CYA chaps would be the perfect producers!

Re: Burning the heather

Downloaded this release first thing and listened to on the drive to work. Decide and it's remix are top drawer PSB bonus material. The remix is one of the best they've commissioned in recent memory, up there with the Tuff City Kids remix of Undertow. This package would have been an ace CD single, pe...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thanks for the review. I wasn't that excited about this album as it took them so long to put together compared to the last few, I was beginning to think they didn't know what it should be. The fact that they announced a greatest hits tour also telegraphed a lack of confidence in the material. Your r...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Since PSB have been independent, they've done an excellent job of keeping things from leaking. "Electric" leaked a week before release, mainly because of the physical product supply chain, and I don't recall "Super" leaking at all. I sincerely doubt this is going to leak anytime soon. The release is...

Re: Burning the heather

Holding-off on purchasing this 7" until we find out what the Japan bonus tracks are. I suspect they might be "Decide" and the "Decide" remix as they put the Boys Noize mixes of "Axis" on the Japan edition of "Electric."

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I'm starting to wonder if this, unconsciously more than anything, is going to be their Bowie influenced album? Being in Berlin and recording at Hansa may have had that effect on them. What we've heard so far sort of suggests that. The abstract cover; the cheesy pop of "Dreamworld" ala "Let's Dance";...
