I'd never noticed that! At least we get the added "I just thought I'd mention it" to balance it out.

oooo that's really nice. It's posted from early 2019 too before any Kitchen Discos, so where is this cover version from?

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I'd tried to limit myself but ended up watching the whole series over 2 days. It took me 20 minutes to get over the last episode I was such an emotional wreck.

The whole series is perfectly acted, directed, sound tracked and written.

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

For me, apart from Will-o-the-wisp, Dreamland and Monkey Business, it's going to be the "B-Sides" that I remember more from this album. One that I'd be putting the Further Listening disc on first should it ever be released.

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Shame it hasn't been upscaled for blu-ray. The codec would have been better and the bitrate could have been increased over what DVD can offer even given the source being SD. Anyway, at least I can't wear this out like the VHS because I kept rewinding and pausing the video during certain sections. Fo...

Re: funko Pops

My Neil has finally arrived (post has been a very sporadic around here at the moment due to loads of staff at the sorting office being ill / isolating because of covid).

They aren't coming out of their little boxes, but they are so cute ;)

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I wonder if the Years and Years cover will be the theme tune or is that a bit too cheesy

I've just had notification from HMV that Chris has been despatched in the post today, but says nothing about Neil :(

Stuck half the Pandemonium (the Stars and the Sun Dub) to the album version to give me an extended version.

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

I think you might be right there. If it had come out as a proper single probably would have been in this weeks top 40. Even though it was a Christmas number 1, Always On My Mind never seems to get classed as a "Christmas" song.

Re: If PSB top 5, who are other 4?

Good question. I've had to base it on how many albums I own by an artist.

#1 - PSB
#2 - The Prodigy
#3 - Erasure
#4 - Robbie Williams (this surprised me)
#5 - OMD

Re: Vote now for the greatest synth sound of all time!

I've had to vote for the I Feel Love bassline, even if this was made by accident, it's an iconic bit of synth. Shame we can't have a 2nd and 3rd place vote as I'd have gone for Blue Monday bassline second followed by West End Girls.

Re: funko Pops

Pointy hats probably most iconic, but can see the issue with the box. Maybe we'll get Chris in the Suburbia mode and Neil in Always on My Mind / Actually dinner jacket. Go West mock up does look good though.

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

Summer of '88. I liked the singles, but never really had a favourite band until I got a tape to tape copy of Actually from a friend and listened to it repeatably during a that years holiday to Mallorca. At that point I decided they were my "favourite band" and bought Introspective on CD (m...
