Re: Re: Literally update-NEED TO READ!

I think it was very honourable and kind of Neil and Chris to keep their fanclub running for so long, but this is 2014 and that sort of thing has long been replaced a few times over.

Re: Certifications

Those numbers are probably all based on estimates and press releases, but they're guidance if nothing else. It does make me wonder where EMI got their "50 million" figure from? Neil said they've certainly never been paid for 50 million but that's what they'd apparently sold by the time they left Par...

Re: Certifications

Neil said this week that Introspective is their best selling album - does that show in their certifications?

Re: Neil and Mark Farrow at London College of Communication.

I've never been "noticed" outside of a work event before, thank you Remark for mentioning you met me, very kind and it was nice to meet the man with the now infamous tattoo. It was a good evening, although I saw it as Mark taking Neil to something low key he might be interested in rather than an off...

Re: 2015 What will it bring?.

MikeyC, yes - that's when they create the album mixes from the demos. Although N&C typically have most of the some written in their demos whereas some artists have just a mumble of a chorus etc.

Re: Bring back Sylvia!

The OP must be fishing right? That has to be one of the most provocative statements to make on this forum.

Re: PSB "Infografic" Stage Presentation!

If one was being cynical one might ask whether in the days when Chris was in random places "was very much was happening".

Re: 2015 What will it bring?.

Lately they've written demos in their "home" studios on soft synths then recorded them on regular synths when they're in a bigger studio, apparently ;) Pete's been working with My Bad Sister, the twins, recently on their Christmas album so there's not been any hardcore PSB stuff happening.

Re: 2015 What will it bring?.

Popart, my guess is in the next couple of weeks the demos will all be with Stuart, its not impossible for the next release to be late spring/early summer. The biggest question is just how soon can they start touring with a new album again? It might be that which delays the release until late autumn ...

Re: Is "Literally" going to be discontinued?

I think we can safely say the next issue will be putting the Electric tour and album to bed, just in time for a Christmas card.

Re: Does neil run?

It's not that difficult to bump into Neil when they're not touring although there's always chance needed - I saw him three times around London in about 9 months last year although I've not seen him since. The third time I said hello he gave his standard "yes I know I remember you" comment that I'm n...

Re: PSB "Infografic" Stage Presentation!

Correct, Pete mentioned somewhere once why it can't be stage right but I forget why, probably not a very interesting reason.
