Re: Now 7 on CD

Every single rerelease of the early NOW compilations have been different to the original ones and many have had complete tracks omitted (Bryan Adams and Bob Marley being two of them and Gary Flitter for more obvious reasons) so the chance of it being the matrix mix are slim. More than likely it’ll b...

Your favourite Second

We’ve had Top Ten tracks, opening lines, lyric, artwork etc but what are among your favourite single seconds of PSB output? For me it’s that first base sound and kick drum at 56 seconds in on Left To My Own Devices. Fist time hearing it and after nearly one minute of an orchestral intro you wonder w...

Re: Closer To Heaven items on auction for Stonewall

I wonder if "Jonathan Pie" still has any production CDs like this?

2006-2020 is going to be a bit thin on the ground for TOTP performances isn’t it! 😂😂

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Electric Ballroom

I'm confused. I got an email when I first donated but I've not had any email over the last few days to say whether I've been successful or unsuccessful. Nothing. Nada.

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

£750. https://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/depeche-mode-by-anton-corbijn/ That is such a massive mis-step in the current climate. Fans on social media are equally enraged about the frankly ridiculous pricing. Where's the £29.99 A4 sized paperback that actual fans who have been through eight mont...

Re: Being Boring At 30

Being Boring is art. By this point, they had mastered the trick of producing superior throwaway pop music designed for maximum commercial impact. Being Boring flopped as a single because it wasn’t remotely throwaway. It was still superior (and how), but it was art. The fact that they were surprised...

Anyone tried actually ordering this? I get as far as an order then it tells me I can’t have it shipped until I order €40 worth of stuff. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

I've been a huge Depeche fan since around 86. I keep kidding myself that the next album will be a "return to form". I've been saying that for four albums now. Man that group misses Alan Wilder....

Re: PSB at the BBC

..and we've finally beaten the Mike Smith Police... What was wrong with Mike Smith? He didn’t sign the TOTP rerun agreement and shortly died after. So the BBC have honoured his wish and have not repeated any episode that was presented by him. It’s a shame because to the casual listener, it lumps hi...
