Re: Cosmic Discussion

Paul Wellers voice doesn’t sound as different on most of the other stuff on his album. If it wasn’t for Cosmic Fringes I would never have listened to it but I quite liked it.

Re: PSB @ Zara

Personally my favourite is Love Etc out of the four and it’s just brilliant this is happening and as sales are going well there should be more to follow. Maybe email info@beckerbrown.com with some suggestions. Marie mentioned the coloured 1989 tour t-shirt, at the time I wanted everything on the st...

Re: PSB @ Zara

I’m amazed at the size for something from Zara. My past experience with them were that their sizes were way too small! I usually needed a medium but from Zara it had to be large or even XL. So I ordered a large Format T-shirt and it is massive. I was going to return it but Medium was sold out. Stuck...

Re: Bilingual - originally planned track list

Bilingual has never been flawed to me. I love it from start to finish and prefer it to Very any day. The only flawed album for me is Nightlife which at the same time has some of my favourites too.

Re: Amazon Music

Streaming from the likes of Amazon is a brilliant way to access what I like to listen too quickly and efficiently. I don’t trust it enough to guarantee that they will always have everything I want. I’ve found certain less mainstream tracks disappear and reappear too often for my liking. So if it’s s...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Have there been any comments about Andy Bells appearance, dress sense, stage act, openness, opinions or being ‘too gay’? I’ve not seen any recently. Andy Bell has an exceptional voice but has only made a handful of songs I want to listen too. Olly Alexander has a good but average voice, is a really ...

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

I haven’t even had a dispatched email yet and I purchased using PayPal as I did with the Discovery DVD. I got a dispatched email for that on the Tuesday before the Friday. I’ve got a bad feeling about this… Exactly the same for me. The order status is ‘Confirmed’ which is what it says for all of my...

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

This seems to happen year after year with pre-orders. They are either blocked as possible fraud or because there’s been a new card since the original order. I’d be well pee’d off! I started to use PayPal instead if I have to pre-order from them. It means I have to pay upfront but it avoids situation...

Re: Quintessentially

Here in Sweden we have northerners as well, usually lumped together as a bunch of slow speaking, tobacco chewing people hardend by years in the mining or logging industry. I really don't know what concept of the the english Northerner is all about. The fascinating Sami people? You couldn’t get more...

Re: Quintessentially

Soon after that I found a VHS of It Couldn't Happen Here from a local library, and the gritty and seedy views of England were quite different after the fantasy land of the Very videos. The chilly seaside and a B&B house with bay windows were forever etched into my mind as 100% English things. T...

Re: The Taxi Driver And His Mate..

I’ve read the first volume of Richard Coles’s memoirs. It’s a good read. He mentions being mistaken for a Pet Shop Boy on about three separate occasions. That does sound an interesting read. Richard Coles seems to have become even more of a celebrity in recent years than he was in The Communards. H...

Me too but she doesn’t always seem to understand ‘please’. I love these little quirks in its system. She’s been a Pethead for quite a while. If she’s listening in to conversations in this house she’ll be bored out of her tiny chips!

Re: Longevity from a fan perspective

There are 2 meanings to the word ‘vindicated’ and I don’t see any hint of guilt in Gabby’s post. It’s been decades since I took any notice of other people’s thoughts on the music I like. Fortunately PSB were very popular when I first became a fan which was at the very beginning so it was never an is...
