Re: Reissues project

Please can someone help me understand how Neil's comment about mastering for a reissues project can be interpreted as the release of a singles boxset or something else they've never issued in the first place!?

Re: Electric Hats

Well they'll sell for at least £1500............

Each individual PSB charity auction item in the past (hat, JD800 etc) has gone for £900+

Re: Electric Show on DVD..???

Do you really think they'd ask their fans to help pay for the release of a DVD? There's a difference between having no money and choosing how you spend your money.

Re: indulgingly

While what they do with their money is no business of anyone's - the Rev Richard Coles said in his autobiography that pop stars actually get a lot less money for things you'd think they'd get lots from and a lot more for the things you'd think they'd get a lot less from. Some of the suggestions on h...

Re: Somewhere DVD

I thought it was just me who thought the Somewhere sound was tinny but now I know. I always watch it with "superbass" on my amp enabled and even then it's still tinny.

I'm wondering now if we'll ever see another PSB DVD release.

Re: A question about "Shameless"

I always see Very as Neil's coming out album where every track was about his relationship (I'm guessing with the younger DJ) or his gay lifestyle. Shameless is very good b-side material - and too well produced for an album track in my view. It got a good outing on the Nightlife tour.

Re: Can we expect some...

Just moving songs within the setlist takes hours of re-programming, so changing the mixes of songs in the show is almost never going to happen. There's a reason why all the "special" tracks (Glad All Over, My girl etc) all get played at the end of the show with no video.

Re: Neil Tennant on South African Radio today....

Elysium showed their commercial days with arty music are over. I don't think they really care about that. If they did, they wouldn't waste time with ballets and stuff like the Alan Turing Project. Whatever they do next, it's what they want to do. They have to - their albums sales and concert fees h...

The NEW album - views and expectations

Let's use this topic to discuss what we hope the new album will be like.


I'm hoping it's deeper than Electric and has influences from some of Kompakt's artists.

Re: Neil Tennant on South African Radio today....

For me, that's the worst news ever. I didn't particularly like the sound of "Electric" - it was already too hard and unmelodious for my taste. I was hoping their next album would be a bit more pop-ish again, more like "Yes" or "Very". There's no market now for PSB to either write or perform "pop mu...
