Re: Peters Pop Show (the days PSB looked like rock stars on a TV show)

Great and strange but there is a recurring theme for all four videos - perhaps told that the decorators are in when performing 'Opportunities' I don't think paint splatters on the artist's designer clothes would be a good idea. Neil then realises they are using gloss rather than matt for the walls. ...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

I've been reading this everyday and also waiting for them to appear. I was expecting at least a top 10 position. I'd be very surprised if both they didn't make it and also if they are in the top three. Perhaps today? I don't think they allow covers in the rules, so that rules out 'Always On My Mind'...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

The album is called Hotspot or Hot Spot? :D I guess its still a one word title so maybe the former. New track on 6 Music now!

Re: Do You Want A New Bitch (Misheard Lyrics - Merged Threads)

This thread is priceless...literally crying with laughter :lol: :D I've had many misheard PSB lyrics and I still sing along to them as I originally thought they sounded (when I first heard them) - its quite hard to correct oneself! One More Chance - 'Push me in the corner and ice cream' was an old f...

Re: Reissues project

Just spotted another error - anyone noticed that Nightlife - Further Listening is printed as 1996-2000 when I think it should be 1998-2000? The last further listening from 2001 finished in 1997 so they shouldn't overlap as all the others are consistent in the start and finish years Having said that ...

Re: Reissues project

Anyone else dusting off the original 6 re-issues to slot alongside the 3 (hopefully) arriving tomorrow? Haha. I feel a little sad, but hey, why not. Oh yes but I have my CDs ordered by artists alphabetically then their releases in chronological order including singles/EPs taken from that album. The...

Re: Free downloads from the OS

These are the songs I have in my iTunes library from the official site - I don't think I got them all but I tried my best at the time once I found the MP3 files had downloaded in my temp folders. Most will now be redundant with the new FL discs of course.

Re: Cassettes

The first ever album I bought was Discography on cassette in 1994 - it snapped in my mum's Amstrad hi-fi...I cried! Alternative was my second album and then the head failed - transplanted the two reels into a new cassette casing. That tape eventually went wonky, just like my Bilingual cassette - pro...

Re: New Look Official Site

I think the new look official website seems to have the text/layout from 'Actually', 'Elysium' and the 'Further Listening' albums - perhaps the new further listening albums are due the end of 2016 after all? Also the brown going on is similar to the outer cover of Literally. Love the way all the vid...

Re: Reissues project

I think that its probably going to be the first four studio albums re-released on vinyl (i.e. Please, Actually, Introspective & Behaviour). The amount of back catalogue albums being re-released on vinyl today seems to be growing. As for 'little gems' it could just be discarded tracks or rough demos ...

Re: Brighton

Wonderful energetic night...I sung every lyric and danced at every opportunity - perhaps a little over enthusiastic during the opening to 'Always On My Mind' - I think I'm the only one that jumped with 'hands in the air' when that chord first kicked in :oops: I was about 6-7 deep in from the front (...

Premiere of 'A Man From The Future' at BBC Proms - 23/07/14

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-27141789 Will include orchestral versions of their songs plus the Alan Turing piece (about 40 minutes with narrative) The Proms is usually televised so this could well be shown on the BBC - broadcast on the radio at least! Just seen much more details on P...
