Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Anyway it is annoyoing that they do not have a store in the EU. They even have a Berlin residency, so it should not be that complicated. They are very popular in many EU countries. They won’t want their own shop. They’re musicians, not traders. The UK one is a fulfilment company doing everything fo...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

It’s not going to be about Cricket, is it? More likely to be a relationship from the woman’s point of view. Anyway… more long tracks please!

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

It’s not legal to collect ‘taxes’ from a customer and then pocket the money yourself though, at least not in the EU. I am not allowed to send out an invoice that states “incl. Same here. But you can charge the same final price, with VAT only itemised on the UK receipts. There is no obligation to ch...

Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

Oooo.... I want to hear that done properly now!


EDIT: not a criticism of the person who created that mashup... just that they didn't have a clean dry source for the vocals.

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

You'll be okay as regards VAT after July, when the EU extended OSS is in place (UK sellers will have to collect VAT for the country of delivery)... assuming the shop keeps selling to the EU at that point... they might need time out to implement the changes. In the meantime though... the short term f...

Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

I think it was stated in the last Annually that Kobalt thought Monkey Business was the PSB's Daft Punk track. Yes, but Random Access Memories period Daft Punk, not something earlier. When Axis came out, it reminded me Discovery era Daft Punk… just before Daft Punk come out with that new RAM sound.

Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

Their debut was superb and they've spent the following 20 years trying to emulate it and falling short... They never tried to emulate their past… each album was its own thing… often shedding loads of fans and listeners along the way. Every album was greeted with howls of “we want proper Daft Punk b...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

She was also the warm up act on a PSB tour.
Yes, she supported them when I saw them in Brighton. Didn’t realise (they’d given up on ‘support’ acts for many years previously) and only heard her last song when we were entering the building.

Re: PSB - Vaccination

And, I repeat, just as with the Euro, and Schengen, and countless other EU initiatives we have sidestepped over the years, we didn’t need Brexit to do our own thing as regards any aspect of healthcare or public health, including vaccine rollout.
