Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Agenda is Punk, isn't it? An EP released by an independent label that has songs no longer than a couple of minutes, designed to provoke and express dissatisfaction with society. It is the New Wave element in PSB's DNA in the ascendent. Riffing indulgently on my own theme, my elevator pitch for PSB ...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Do you find that it affects your fandom and appreciation of the music though? Genuine, open question. No, not at all. I do think that if I weren't a fan, I'd find Neil incredibly annoying though. LOL. Thanks for answering. I guess at least he isn't as problematic as Morrissey. Count that as a bless...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Isn't it true that most people believe themselves to be right when it comes to political views they espouse? After all, why would one publicly advocate a position that one didn't believe in? Neil has an inordinate degree of certainty that he's right, even in the case of a volte face like Iraq. He's...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

My main issue with Neil's politics is that he automatically assumes that he's right, whether that's the war in Iraq or Brexit. So when he supported the invasion, he would have assumed that anyone disagreeing with him was wrong and vice versa. Everyone has convictions but these issues are rarely pur...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Greetings, And isn't the cause of Venezuela's demise actually the sanctions by the US and the major drop of oil prices? Ha, no... you don't get 80,000% inflation in 2018 because of that, and you don't get such absurd hyper-inflation in a market capitalist economy that has law and order. Rather, you...

Their agenda has been successful: Pitting PSB fans against each other over political differences. Hope you're happy, boys.
Is this necessarily a bad thing? It is creating an interesting debate.

I bet Ed Sheeran fans don't get intellectually stimulated or challenged in the same way.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Does anyone know how or if Agenda can be eligible for charts?

I'd love it to make some kind of impression on the wider culture.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

What are we going to do about the rich is hilarious. Like Shameless in 2019. Yes, all the lyrics from the EP seem too obvious but I guess it's intentional. The world is collapsing and they want to have their say said without hiding in ironic or cryptical lyrics. This time the irony is the euphoric ...

Re: Grateful, beyond belief

I like the EP as a format. I'd rather have four amazing PSB tracks in a single release, rather than four amazing PSB tracks nestling amongst 8 Meh tracks (*cough* Super *cough*) Still can't quite grasp the dissatisfaction with Super - I don't think there's a weak track on it, but it's not as compac...
