Re: Crazy productivity

Low quality?! Are you really PSB fans? One has to find the difference between taste and objectivity. There is no lack of quality regarding these tracks. I may not quite like Soup or one of the Agenda tracks but I have nothing to complain about the quality.

The PSB-Fancy-Bobby O-connection

I've tried to solve this riddle for some years now but I've quite not succeeded yet. The PSB collaboration with Bobby O is fairly straightforward by now but there's a mix of the original version of One more chance which credits "Tess" as the remixer. Tess is also credited for a ZYX-records megamix. ...

Re: Obsessed with anything unreleased?

I’d love for the Bobby O demos / album prototype to get a proper release. And in addition to the Bobby O demo of “In the club or in the queue,” there’s a version they worked on in 1999, too. Yes, it's crazy that there is a whole 1984-album (maybe even two) lying there somewhere and probably a 1983 ...

Re: Memories of PSB live in 2002

This is the tour they should've made into an album, a great single disc live album. It would've given them a lot of cred. It would've been more satisfying than all those musicals and ballets etc

Re: The lost single

my favorite live version of west end girls has to be the release tour where they did a kinda spacey version of it with guitar. That's exactly one of the reasons why they should've released it as single along with a full live album, a proper 2002 concert album (one disc only), not just some recordin...

Re: The lost single

West End Girls is also a lost single. Somewhere along the line, probably perhaps around the release of PopArt West End girls shoul've been rereleased with a live version as the A-side and a demo och different take as b-side along with another couple of live tracks from the tour of -02 (they should'v...

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

"Dreamland" got the score of 6,369 on Geowayne's rating project. Only five PSB-singles have scored lower: "Numb", "Before", "Beautiful people", "Together" and "Winner". 'Before' is a veritable masterpiece by comparison to the other songs on this list. If one cannot appreciate Before and Together as...

Re: The lost single

In Private should have been released as a PSB 7'' with Dusty on vocals and Neil on more prominent backing vocals or perhaps some spoken word bit in the song. Released in late november '89 it would've been a perfect fit in the gap between Introspective and Behaviour. Chris should've been involved in ...

Re: B-Sides since 2009's "Format"

Forget it, this list will never be conclusive in a correct way no matter how you go about it. I thought the 80's was messy with non-albums singles but it's nothing compared to the chaos of the last years.

Re: The lost single

In The Night would have easily been top 10, purely because the Clothes Show was massive. Wow, that's right. But they only started using it as theme song in 1987 (was it early '87 or late '87?). Could PSB have fitted in both King's Cross and In the Night as singles during that time? I guess so. Let'...

Re: The lost single

There is only one really true lost single: King's Cross and we all know why...

Didn't Chris acknowledge that Why don't we was 'ace' and should've been a single. They should've released it in 1985 and put it's 12'' mix on Disco.
