One of them even dared to say that he was so sorry, almost tear-eyed, to quit PSB because they were making incredibly good music but rather than being "labelled" by his friends that he was a "queer listening to queers", he would cut his ears, so to speak.

Think about general public reaction...
I've thought that was the opinion many casual listeners had for ages.They will like a PSB song but wont dare admit it and wont dare go buy it.

MD ;- I think Dazzer Uk is the best person to ask for info. He's a walking Encyclopedia. I can remember seeing that Nightlife and Release sold around 25k each. Fundamental is around 50 k on its own. They are guesstimates really but Fundamental has certainly dwarfed both Nightlife and Release's sales, individually.

Are all of the members of D.MODE gay? I just recently bought thier first cd and did not know they were gay untill i heard "Boy's say Go".Only heard Violator before that and don't rember it having any songs that were gay.
Boys say go was rather dodgy but don't think it was a gay song intentionally.

COMPLETELY agree! How hilarious would that be? I can see John Stewart being a huge PSB fan...
