My theory is that Disco 5 will be 45 minutes of silence, with no tracklisting, no artwork, no promotion and no release date.
It’s already out. I got a limited edition unsigned copy.
I have mine unframed!

Re: Kylie's new album is called Disco - does that kibosh Di5co?

It's just trend. Sophie Ellis Bextor releases "Songs From The Kitchen Disco" this autumn too https://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/sophie-ellis-bextor-songs-from-the-kitchen-disco/ That's another thing. During lockdown she went live on Instagram every sunday (or so) and played her hits plus one n...

Re: Live performances of Chris in past and now.

This is more personal life rather than PSB, but remember that clip on YouTube of Chris dancing at an outdoor house music dance party? Probably from 1988 or ‘89. The clip used to be on the forum but I haven’t found it in a long time. Does anyone have it and might share? Thanks!

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I had a school friend who was a massive fan. He made me a mix tape of PSB, some time in 1989. Looking back, it was a slightly weird mix of songs; I remember that it had The Sound of the Atom Splitting on it, Don Juan, and Shopping, but not Rent, Suburbia, What have I done to deserve this? or Domino...

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I had been an enthusiastic though casual fan... until I got to college in the Fall of ‘91 and DISCOGRAPHY came out. BOOM I was hooked and have been a die-hard passionate fan ever since!!

Re: I don't wanna - hey, those remixes are really good

Wow, can't keep my ears off them. Those remixes on the 12'' of I don't wanna are amazing. I don't really listen to them as individual tracks, more like one long remix. When the cowbell sets in after three minutes.... Feels like a perfect merge of the 80's and the 20's. Amazing that something that a...

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: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

I'm stunned that Depeche Mode never had a #1 single in the UK - I'd have put cold hard cash down on that. Just goes to show that chart positions counted for very little even back in the 80's. Depeche Mode is so dark, I understand they are not very radio friendly. I think the very first songs with V...
